Spicing up your home doesn’t always have to consist of getting the paintbrushes out. sometimes there are other more interesting ways to get a new look, feel and smell into your home. If you’ve never thought about it before, why not take a look at some plants and see the benefits that they can bring to your home. There are many different species available and each has it’s own benefits to your home, so let’s take a look.

This species of plant has many variants, some even saying it goes up to 40 but this just makes it easier to find the best one for your home! If you are interested in wides leaves with possible red, white or cream lines this could be the plant for you. They have a moderate ability to filter the air in your home, so not only do they look good, they purify your home aswell. These plants are actually toxic to animals though, so make sure you don’t have an animal that will end up eating this.

It can filter benzene, formaldehyde, and xylene from the air and hardly costs anything at your standard garden store. The great thing about this plant is it’s not only an outdoor plant, this plant can be put outside once it has finished blooming if required.

The Weeping Fig or Ficus

 

In southeast Asia, the Ficus is a native tree, however, when this beauty grows indoors it’s a hardy plant that can grow up to 10 feet tall. The plant is low maintenance and also has a great ability to clean the air from benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. The Ficus also has the ability to be taken outside in late spring and brought back indoors when temperatures are warmer.

 

Boston Fern

The Boston fern is another plant that has the ability to filter the air, although the Boston Fern only removes formaldehyde and xylene. You will need to keep these moist and make sure that you keep on top of watering etc. you always want to make sure that your plant or any type of plant display you have is looked after.
