Bringing the green indoors

Not only do houseplants bring both beauty and peace in our homes and they are able to break down these toxins by breathing in carbon dioxide and churning out oxygen thus making indoor air quality much cleaner. Yes, remembering to water them maybe challenging but engaging kids to help, can aid in the keeping them alive.

Here are some suggestions (and they are quite easy to find at a nursery).

  • Most palms are great but others include: areca, lady, and dwarf date palm
  • Rubber plants
  • English ivy
  • Peace lily
  • Spider plant
