Best Indoor Plants for Our Homes

Let’s spruce up our homes with these indoor plants.

For those of us who want to add a bit of greenery to our homes, the number of indoor plant options can be overwhelming.  However, as the majority of us are looking for plants that are easy and safe to grow, here are some of our best options.

  • Palms

Palms are one of the most common indoor plants for a good reason.  Not only are there many varieties of palms to suit various decorating styles, but these types of plants are also safe for children and pets and can even filter toxins out of the air.  Parlor Palms, Areca Palms, Bamboo Palms, and Pygmy Date Palms are all great options for our homes.

  • Spider Plants

Spider plants are well known for their hardiness and air filtering capabilities.  These plants can thrive in a wide range of conditions, from bright to indirect light and temperatures anywhere between 45 and 80 degrees. Spider plants are also non-toxic and will clean the air in our homes of benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene. These are all common volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are emitted into the atmosphere in our homes by everyday items such as furniture, carpets, and common household appliances. With all these benefits, spider plants are the perfect addition to most homes looking for a little greenery.

  • Boston Ferns

For those of us looking for a romantic hanging plant, then Boston Ferns are a fantastic choice.  These trailing plants look great hanging from pots or draped over tall bookshelves and mantles.  These fast-growing plants are non-toxic to animals and are relatively easy to care for.  Keep these plants out of the direct sunlight and mist them frequently, and we will soon have a beautiful addition to our homes.

  • Rubber Plants

They are popular ornamental plants with leathery, glossy oval-shaped leaves.

Rubber plants rank high on the list of house plants that eliminate toxins such as formaldehyde from the air in your home. As time goes on, the rubber plant becomes even more efficient at removing toxic compounds from the air.

Formaldehyde can be released into the air from furniture and flooring, as well as everyday household items that you might not think of, such as air fresheners, hair products, and nail polish.
