Mother in Law's Tongue adds lots of oxygen to the air
Phase One Landscapes knows that just as much as outdoor plants can help accent the exterior of your home, indoor plants have their fair share of benefits too and are nice decorations for homes and offices. If you like taking care of indoor foliage, then here’s a reason to get one more potted plant. Some types of houseplants can improve air quality. If you’re sensitive to dust or mildew, there are a few houseplants that might reduce your sniffles.
During the day, the Areca Palm generates a lot of oxygen. Plant scientists recommend that you buy four shoulder-high plants for each person in your home, but you can still benefit from having just a couple of these trees around the house.
Mother-in-Law’s Tongue generates more oxygen in the evening. Again, plant scientists recommend having six to eight plants per person. However, you can still enjoy the benefits of a good supply of oxygen through the night, even if you don’t own that many of these plants.
If you are interested in removing volatile organic compounds from the air (VOCs), the Money Plant is your foliage of choice. It acts like a filter that can remove VOCs like formaldehyde out of the air, improving air quality.
If you’re looking for something equally as aesthetically pleasing as it is useful, try the English Ivy. It’s easy to care for, and can be trained to climb book cases and be hung from ceiling hooks .
