Plants in the home can serve a beneficial purpose. They aren’t just going to improve the appearance of your home, they can actually serve to improve the quality of the air you are breathing.
Indoor air is among the worst you can breathe, and this is what leads to many respiratory issues that plague people today. Some of the most harmful elements of indoor air are chemicals that are released into the air one way or another. So how can plants help with this? Well, plants can filter out chemicals from the air, leaving you with cleaner air in your home. You should be careful, however, not to use any chemical fertilizer for your plants, since this will add additional chemicals to the air instead. You also need to make sure that the added humidity from the plants gets taken care of if necessary, for example, by using a dehumidifier.
