House Plants

House plants benefit our indoor spaces not only by converting carbon dioxide to oxygen but also by absorbing many pollutants. Many of these pollutants are chemical compounds that are released into the air through a process called "off-gassing". Many everyday items present in our homes and office off-gas and NASA discovered over 300 organic compounds aboard the space shuttle. In it's endeavor to conquer space, NASA began testing common house plants for their capacity to purify indoor air. Luckily for us, it turns out that some of the best house plants for cleaning our air are also very easy to grow.
