Kevin Maryott  from McCoard's Garden Center shows us 5 house plants that will clean your air.

  1. Snake plant: NASA's favorite plant because it cleans toxins out of the air. It also oxygenates the air well, especially good to place in your bedroom. Water every 2-3 weeks.
  2. Croton: Indirect lighting, easy to keep alive.
  3. Aloe vera: The gel inside the leaves is excellent for helping to heal burns and cuts. Aloe Vera however, is also a great plant to improve your indoor air quality.
  4. Rubber Plant (Ficus): Forgiving plant that can grow as big as a tree if you want it to. Also great for cleaning the air.
  5. Peace Lily: Freshens air and also has a nice, fresh scent.
