Houseplants have long been known to be an effective way to reduce indoor air pollution and toxins in your home and office. According to a 1989 study by NASA, indoor plants can remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, and ammonia (chemicals that have been linked to health effects like headaches and eye irritation) from the air we breathe.
With winter upon us and lots of time spent indoors, now is a great time to create a healthier home and office by greening up your indoor space with indoor plants. So, how many plants do you need? Well, NASA research suggests having at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space to filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
(Above and below) We have a large selection of indoor plants in a variety of sizes perfect for small and larger spaces. Be sure to ask our expert staff which plants will do the best in your indoor space.
Spider Plant, Snake Plant, Golden Pothos, Red-edged Dracaena, Weeping Fig, Azalea, English Ivy, Warneck Dracaena, Chinese Evergreen, Bamboo Palm, Heart Leaf Philodendron, Boston Fern, Lady Palm, Dwarf Date Palm, Kimberley Queen Fern, and Peace Lily are among the best plants for filtering harmful compounds out of the air we breathe.
We also stock a huge assortment of containers, great for indoor and outdoor plants.
In particular, we are very proud to have unique, one-of-a-kind hand-thrown pottery by local artist Ken Morris. We think you’ll agree that Ken’s work is absolutely beautiful and perfect for your home.
