Going green with house plants

Spring will be here soon but until then many spend time with their indoor plants.

Indoor plants help to clean the air in the home, which is even more important with more home being sealed up to prevent heat loss.

This you tube talks about the different sizes and varieties of houseplants and their advantages for the home.

This list of plants covers some of the varieties of indoor plants and their care and needs for lighting in the home

  • Eureka Palm
  • Spathiphyllum (The Peace Lily)
  • Golden Pothos
  • Yucca – good for sunny window, needs less water
  • Arboracola
  • Dieffenbachia
  • Austin Fern (hanging plant, good for bathroom)
  • Succulents (require little maintenance)

It is said that to purify the home you need a minimum of 1 plant per 100 square feet to clean toxins.

I have a large selection of succulents and ferns in my home. I had never thought about the yucca plant but it is one of my favorite outdoors so we may have to add it indoors too.
