May 9, 2008, Newsletter Issue #98: Go green Plants, That Is

Tip of the Week

Houseplants have more advantages for your home than just looking pretty. Houseplants can actually filter the air in your house and rid it of pollutants. Follow these guidelines to make your houseplants work for you:

Keep one houseplant per every 10 square yards to help keep the air clean in that area

If you mix night synthesizing plants (like orchids) with regular plants, your plants will work around the clock to filter your air

Use a general mixture of plants to try to filter out as many pollutants as possible

Different plants are good for different pollutants, for example:

Philodendrons and aloe plants are especially good protection against formaldehyde

Gerbera daisies, peace lily, and English ivy are good protection against benzene and trichloroethylen
