By simply adding plants to each room you can help combat the dryness and clean the air.
Through NASA studies, scientists have identified 50 houseplants that remove many pollutants and gases and help clean the air inside homes and offices. Among the many benefits indoor plants provide are: they eliminate significant amounts of benzene and formaldehyde, they help absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, they contribute to internal humidity and they help collect dust (which I’m all about–add some plants, dust less!) They can also help cut down on allergies, headaches and actually make you happy!…..Not to mention they’re pretty and help any room look better. The following plants include choices that are either inexpensive, easy to grow, easy to maintain or resistant to pests or in some cases, all of the above-all of them help purify the air indoors.
