We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, and again, and again.  Houseplants are where it is at!  They are in homes, banks, hospitals, offices, restaurants, etc.  Why? Because of the number of environmental and health benefits these houseplants provide.

Here are just a few, but we feel the most important benefits of houseplants:


  1. Help you breath by absorbing carbon dioxide that we exhale
  2. Release water into the air which helps our respiratory systems
  3. Remove dangerous toxins from the air
  4. Improve health and sharpens our focus on day to day activities

Sounds good doesn’t it?  How can you not like clean air?  Trouble is, there are hundreds (more like thousands) of varieties of houseplants to chose from.  Do some “work” better than others?  We’ve come up with a short list to help you answer that question.   Our favorite houseplants for clean air are:
