Top Air Purifying Plants for Your Home

Let’s start 2014 off right! A lot of New Year’s Resolutions center around being healthier and a great place to start is with some plants. Studies show that indoor pollution is typically two to three times worse than outdoor pollution especially during the winter when we keep our hatches battened and run our heaters. Fortunately for us, an easy way to filter indoor pollutants is to enjoy some indoor plants.

A study done by NASA listed the top air purifying plants. Here are some of the easiest to grow:

Syngonium podophylum or “Arrowhead Vine” is an attractive large leafed vine that drapes rather than climbs and grows well in low light (even a light bulb works).

    Interesting and helpful article. You should put a link to this on the San Diego Is Awesome Facebook Fan Page (make one right away if you don’t have one) and also link from your personal Facebook pages to the SDIA Facebook Fan Page. Solicit everyone you know to LIKE the SDIA Fan Page. Build a following. Things-To-Do in San Diego should be a good niche to eventually start to pay for itself (and you). You’re in the right place and you’re the right kind of guy to do this. Good luck.
