Indoor Plants for Better Indoor Air Quality

By Horseshoe
October 17, 2012

Grow fresh air in your house! One of the best air purifiers is the Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum). Listed as one of the “Top air filtering" plants rated on a research study by NASA, the Peace Lily offers greenery, beautiful white flowers, and the ability to remove toxins from the air. Moist soil and moderate sunlight keeps it happy.

Your brief article is a good reminder at this time of year.
I am bringing in tender plants as it is going to get cold and stay cold this time.
Thanks.

Great reminder. Besides being good for indoor air quality, I love indoor plants just for their beauty. Hurray!
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

In the end, only kindness matters.

Howdy, Folks...

I seldom get online much so was surprised to see this tip; I'd forgotten I submitted it, too!

But yep, time to bring those plants in-doors, for most of us anyway. CarolineScott, I'm always amazed out much you get out of the "season" in your area. You must have green toes as well as a green thumb!

My "in-door plants" right now, in addition to Spathephylum, are long stalks of black oil sunflower hanging to dry so I have seed for the birds this winter. It's an eerie sight but will eventually be a pretty one when the birds come a'singing on the colder winter days! :>)

Happy Day to all!

This year has been a longer frost free season than usual.
We work at protecting plants with covers etc. in case of frost.
