According to NASA, these are the plants that you need to keep in your home


Plants are extremely beneficial, not just as a decoration in your home, but they also cleanse the air from molds and toxins.

The inhalation of these harmful toxins from the air in your home can endanger your overall health. According to NASA researchers, a number of indoor plants are very effective when it comes to filtering the air. They can remove toxins and dust from the air, and can also remove the toxins from fresh paint.

In this article, we are going to talk about six of them:

IVY (Hedera Helix)

This plant can eliminate 60 percent of the toxic substances that are in the air, and around 58 percent of the waste particles within six hours after being placed in the room.

Snake plant

This plant needs just a tiny bit of light, in order to perform photosynthesis, and it will release a high amount of oxygen during the night. This means that it is safe and in fact, recommended that you keep this plant in your bedroom.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has the ability to absorb carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and CO2, and it releases oxygen. What is more, the experts believe that it is just as effective as having nine biological home cleaners.


This plant is very easy to cultivate, and it can effectively cleanse the air of formaldehyde.

Peace lilies

This plant can eliminate all harmful chemicals and toxins from the air, as well as trichloroethylene and formaldehyde.

Spider plant

This is a plant that needs very little light in order to perform photosynthesis. It also has the ability to get rid of all the toxins in the room, and some of them include carbon monoxide, gasoline, and styrene. It can also cleanse 200 m2 of space.

NASA recommends that you keep 15-19 houseplants in an area no larger than 500 m2, which means that you will need about three to four plants for a normal, 80 square meters’ area. What is more, always make sure to keep one of these plants in your bedroom.
