The world has changed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and people are spending more time indoors. It's essential, then, to create a healthy living space for you and your loved ones.
One of the best ways is to ensure a high level of oxygen in your home. A simple way that is also beautiful is to introduce more houseplants. Not only does more houseplants add some colour to your home, but it is also an effective way to purify the air.
Giving some helpful advice about the best houseplants to keep is no other than NASA. Even though it seems that they are hardly the organisation that would offer up insight into these types of plants.
However, back in the late 1980s, the US government agency collaborated with the Associated Contractors of America (ALCA). They produced an informative Clean Air Study and came up with a list of the most beneficial flora for your home. They found that some plants, more than others, could naturally filter harmful chemicals and help mitigate the effects they have on humans.
Two of the top plants best for filtering and purifying your air is the Florist's Mum and the Peace Lily. Apparently, they both remove dangerous chemicals from the air. These include benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene and ammonia.
According to NASA, one should have at least one plant per 100 square feet of space. This offers all plant lovers an excuse to fill their homes with some more plants, especially plants with health benefits. Think of the English Ivy, Flamingo Lily, and the popular Varigated Snake Plant.
It is never too late to start filling your home with more greens. With a healthy environment comes more physical health and joy. So, with the help of NASA, go forth and surround yourself with plants!
