What’s better than a natural air filter that releases oxygen and absorbs toxins of all kinds? Costs nothing and gives optimal effect.

Many studies have been conducted on the natural way of air cleaning the plants are pretty able to do. But this latest is the best by far because it is done by NASA and has narrowed down to top 6 air cleaning plants.

These are the total air filters everyone should have at home or office.

It is a well known fact that the trees and the plants can clean the air and release Oxygen. Not many of us know that they also absorb humidity, formaldehyde, toxins and dirt from the air.

These are the total air filters everyone should have at home or office.

Aloe Vera is the champion of air cleaners. It absorbs Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde  and releases more Oxygen than other  plants . Believe it or not one plant of Aloe Vera can substitute nine air purifiers.

Ficus (FicusElastica) – It is rather easy to grow this plant at home or office because it does not need direct light. It absorbs formaldehyde very well but the problem is that its leaves are poisonous and can hurt children and pets.

Ivy (Hedera Helix) – It is the fastest of all plants in air purifying. It amazingly cleans 58 % of feces particles and 60 % of the dirt and toxins in the air.

Spider plant (ChlorophytumComosum) – it takes only one Spider plant to purify air for a space of 200m2. Easy to maintain , doesn’t need much light for photosynthesis.

Snake planet (SansevieriaTrifasciata “Laurentii”) – It should be best if kept in the bedroom as it releases Oxygen at night. It is a sturdy plant and does not require high maintenance.

Peace lilies (Spathiphyllum “Mauna Loa”) – It absorbs trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and releases oxygen.

It is NASA recommended to have 15 – 18 plants of these kind in a space of 500 m2. 3- 4 plants in a place of 80 m2. Don’t forget to have one in your room, you need the oxygen.
