Best house plants for filtering air pollutants

  • Chrysanthemum - likes light, not direct
  • Red-edged dracaena (Dracaena marginata)
  • Weeping fig (Ficus benjamina) - can be hard to care for
  • Peace lily (Spathiphyllum) - Shade and weekly watering - topped NASA research for best all-round air filtering
  • Aloe Vera - sunny kitchen window
  • Gerber daisy (Gerbera jamesonii) - good for chemicals from dry cleaning and printers - needs light
  • Snake plant / mother in law's tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata) - OK in low light and humidity
  • Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum) - resilient
  • Golden pothos (Scindapsus aures) - cascades
  • Azalea (Rhododendron simsii) - cool areas
  • English ivy (Hedera helix) - filters airborne fecal particles
  • Warneck dracaena (Dracaena deremensis 'Warneckii')
  • Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema Crispum 'Deborah') - easy to care for
  • Bamboo palm (Chamaedorea sefritzii) – shade, very good filterer
