Want a quick and easy way to give your Yuma, Arizona, home a boost in air quality? While changing your HVAC system’s filter and having your ducts cleaned are two great first steps, you should also think about adding some houseplants to your rooms. Houseplants naturally remove toxins like carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde, and more from the air, creating an environment that is clean and pure. Add the following plants to your space to reap the most benefits.
Spider plants are extremely simple to grow. All they need is a bright spot filled with indirect sunlight, and they should thrive. The long, green tendrils blossom up and out of the dirt, creating a haphazard tangle of leaves that resembles a clump of spiders scurrying along the earth.
Boston ferns just require one important thing — lots of moisture. These plants love humidity, so you should spray them with a water bottle at least once a day. Place the plant in an area with indirect sunlight, and it should start flourishing soon.
The peace lily is the only plant on this list that actually flowers indoors, producing seashell-shaped petals that pop in a soft white tone. While you won’t see any blossoms until summer, you can still add this plant to your home during the winter.
Aloe vera is probably more commonly known as a skin moisturizer, but it also has important air-cleansing properties. Just be sure to keep aloe from soaking in too much water, and you should have a plant that provides soothing relief for your skin and lungs.
