Improve Your Air Quality with Indoor Plants and Flowers

With the onset of allergies, asthma and other respiratory disorders, indoor air quality is increasingly scrutinized. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, winter is the worst time of the year for indoor air quality, saying, “a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities,” according to a press release. One of the easiest ways to improve air quality inside the home is to add some indoor plants and flowers to your décor. “All plants add oxygen and create a healthier indoor environment,” says Chris Raimondi of Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) in the press release. “In addition, some plants provide the added benefit of removing toxins from the air.” You can get many plants and flowers from Amazon’s Fresh Flowers and Indoor Plant Store where you will find great plants but also all the seeds, accessories and tools needed to revive your indoors. There is a large assortment of bamboo plants, Lilies, Bamboo plants, and roses that can be bought for a reasonable price and can provide a fresh breath of oxygen to your home. While all indoor plants and flowers, if cared for properly, will provide your home with added oxygen, some plants are better than others. PLANET suggests for example getting a Ficus Tree which needs medium to high light.  Peace Lilies are also a great option because they are easy to care for. Spider plants are a great indoor pollution fighter and grow easily in medium light. Ferns are also a great way to clean improve your home’s air quality and require very little maintenance.
