The Best Air-Purifying Indoor Plants

I adore plants of all kinds, and someday, I plan on turning my home — or at least one room in my home — into a jungle. Tropical plants and succulents have been popular for a while now, and it’s a thrill to cultivate them and watch them grow week to week. So far, I have more plants in my office than I can count on one hand, and I also have a few scattered around my home. Indoor plants serve two purposes: they are beautiful to look at and bring life indoors, and they help to purify the air.

Each of the following plants helps improve the air quality while adding a vibe of tranquility. If you have pets, make sure to check which indoor plants are toxic to dogs and cats before adding them to your home.

One thought on “The Best Air-Purifying Indoor Plants”

  1. I’ve been feeling a need for more “life” in my home, Danielle, and can really use this list. I used to have a lot of plants inside and outside my home…then… four years I adopted a nomadic lifestyle and that changed. My plant number has dwindled down to a sum total of ZERO. I think it’s high time I reconnect with my love of plants. They not only purify the air, but they also look amazing! Thanks again for reconnecting me with something that used to bring me great joy. xo
