10 Best Houseplants for Improving the Air Quality in Your Home

Who doesn’t love houseplants? Something about crisp, green, growing leaves seems to brighten up any room. But did you know that houseplants can elevate mood, enhance creativity, promote wellness, and according to studies by NASA, Associated Landscape Contractors of America, and the American Society for Horticultural Science, they also purify indoor air?

Our modern day homes are rife with pollutants that can cause a host of health problems. Chemicals from furniture, floor coverings, paints, detergents, air fresheners, and household cleaners can hover inside poorly ventilated homes, as well as those with good airflow. Fortunately, there are many houseplants that will filter these chemicals and clean air naturally, as well as brighten up your living space.

Below is a list of the best houseplants for cleaning the toxins out of the air in your home.

 

1. English Ivy

This charming evergreen vine grows happily in low or indirect light conditions. The leaves are poisonous, so keep them away from pets and kids. Fortunately, English Ivy enjoys containers and hanging baskets, and brightens up shelves and dark corners beautifully. Studies have shown that English Ivy is effective at removing benzene, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, as well as other allergens such as mold and airborne fecal matter. Hang one near your pet’s litterbox, or in the bathroom.

 

2. Peace Lily

The beautiful broad green leaves and cupped white blooms of the peace lily is a favorite in the NASA study for removing the three most common pollutants: formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. Peace lilies will thrive and flower in bright light. They can handle lowlight conditions, though they may not produce blooms. Keep the foliage and flowers clear of dust to maximize their detoxifying power. The plant is poisonous as well, so keep it out of reach of kids and pets.

 

3. Bamboo Palm

This sturdy palm can grow tall, between 3 to 6 feet, and is an elegant plant in any room. It’s effective at removing the formaldehyde often used in furniture, so arrange it next to chairs, couches, and end tables, in indirect light. During drier winter months, the bamboo palm can also add a bit of welcome moisture to the air.

 

4. Ficus

Ficus is a tropical looking evergreen with twisting roots and bright green, shiny leaves. It’s effective at removing pollutants from furniture and carpets, though it can be a bit temperamental to grow. Keep the leaves clear of dust and water moderately.

 

5. Dracaena

The sword shaped leaves of the Dracena plant can come in a variety of colors and variations, and can easily reach ceiling height when cared for properly. This plant is best for ridding the air of chemicals found in lacquers, varnishes, and gasoline. Also known as a Corn Plant, the Dracena is a dramatic, but fairly easy plant to maintain.

 

6. Chrysanthemum

You’re probably already familiar with these colorful flowers. Mums are popular in bouquets, but as a potted plant, they are excellent at filtering out chemicals found in glues, paints, detergents, and plastics. Chrysanthemums love bright light, and add a gorgeous pop of color to any room.

 

7. Golden Pothos

Pothos are excellent for filtering out formaldehyde and stays green, even if kept in the dark, which makes it ideal for basements and garages. A proficient grower, Pothos is great in containers and hanging pots where its trailing vines can tumble over the pot’s edge.

 

8. Snake Plant

A common, if not slightly offensive, nickname for this blade-like plant is mother-in-law’s-tongue. It’s awesome at filtering out chemicals found in toilet paper, tissues, and other toiletry products. It enjoys low light and humid conditions, which makes it ideal for bathrooms.

 

9. Spider Plant

Often considered a gift plant, since the Spider Plant produces runners with ‘babies’ that can easily be transplanted. Spider Plants filter out chemicals emitted from leather and rubber. This resilient plant takes very little maintenance, and can get by happily without water. It will tell you it’s thirsty when the green of the long, skinny, striped leaves fade. A little water will perk it right back up!

 

10. Aloe

Aloe is an excellent low maintenance plant for sunny locations. It’s great at removing chemicals from paints and chemical cleaning products, and the gel inside the succulent spiked leaves can be used to relieve cuts and burns. Aloe is a slow grower, but it can get quite large.

The recommended rule of thumb is one potted houseplant every 100 square feet, but you really can’t have too many houseplants for good air quality. Here’s a list of even more air cleaning plants. Display plants in groups to maximize their filtering power and create a lovely aesthetic. And then…breathe easy!

    This really a nice article about house plants! My mum is actually looking forward to have plants around the house. And this article is a very good suggestion. Love the benefits of Aloe Vera. Thank you Rinpoche for this article.

  4. JP on Oct 22, 2016 at 10:01 pm

    With so much air pollution, it’s good to know that we have natural air purifiers that are even more effective in filtering harmful chemicals than the machines. I have a spider plant in my office and it’s growing very well despite the lack of sun.

    Plants lighten up a room and make it more inviting. When there are plants nearby, I feel more relaxed and calm. Imagine the effects of living in an environment surrounded by trees and lots of plants. It’s definitely much healthier for the body and mind.

  5. Lowkhjb on Oct 21, 2016 at 11:14 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind sharing on the benefits of certain house plants to purify the air in our homes.I was rather surprised that my wife actually have quite a few of the mentioned plants grown in pots kept at our dive way.

    We should consider to rotate the plants into our home to purify the air indoors .But we should not neglect the needs of the plants to have sufficient sunlight and nutrients to grow healthy ,in order for it to function efficiently.

  6. Fong on Oct 19, 2016 at 1:28 am

    Some of these plants though stated here to thrive in low light, really will not do well indoors. The bamboo plant for one really need uv light. It will just look tortured indoors loosing foliage and turn a sickly yellow and dry. These plants needs to be rotated out to the sun every other week.

    But plants are always a welcome addition in any room in the house. The sight of them really freshens without even mentioning the amount of oxygen it brings. But then again, plants will only contribute oxygen if there is photosynthesis.

    But I guess, for the filtering ability of the plants, it’ll be great to have these plants in the house even if we have to rotate them out to the sun to keep them healthy.

    Thank you for the information on the filtering ability of these plants. Nowadays, with all the pollutants in the air, every little bit helps.

  7. TekLee on Oct 18, 2016 at 11:49 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this information. When I was a kid, I used to help my parents to plant some of the plant that Rinpoche mentioned. Like bamboo palm, aloe, spider plant, snake plant, and golden pothos. Some of them are still in the garden now 🙂 But during that time I didn’t know the benefit of these plants yet. As a kid that time, I only knew planting a plant, seeing their colour and waiting for it to grow, gave me another kind of happiness. As age goes by, it seems I have forgotten I used to like planting before. I think I must get some to put in my house, one to purify the air in my house, in the same time, to bring back my childhood memory 🙂
    Thank you again Rinpoche for sharing. _/\_

  8. Pastor Han Nee on Oct 18, 2016 at 3:33 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this educational and informative blogpost.

    These indoor house plants, are just what is needed to filter out the toxin in the air. At the same time, they may release some much needed oxygen. From the potted palm to the hanging plants like the English Ivy, they are elegant looking and great for decor. At the same time they are soothing to the eye. They will generally promote health and wellness, and even elevate one’s mood, and lend a touch of nature to the scene. It’s most relaxing to just look at them. Having the colorful chrysanthemum as a houseplant will truly brighten up the indoor scene and make it look rather festive .

    Yes, there are many benefits to be derived from having these houseplants around.

  9. Echeah on Oct 17, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these useful tips. These plants depicted are common in Malaysia so it’s easy to grow them. Many busy people nowadays opt for the evergreen fake ones which need no maintenance other than the occasional dusting. But they are fake and I feel they just don’t breathe life into the internal environment. Nothing beats the real thing and it’s always a joy to see the plants thrive and bloom. So pleasing to the senses. They are also important to the ecosystem in that they absorb our waste carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which is what we need, so they are natural air purifiers. They say the colour green relaxes the eyes, so it’s good to look up from our hours on the computer and stare at the green plants (the further away the better) to reduce eye strain.

  10. Stella Cheang on Oct 16, 2016 at 6:10 pm

    House plants are the perfect natural decoration for our home. We derive the many benefits from the photosynthesis process by the plants; plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen where we need oxygen but release carbon dioxide. This same process enriches the humidity of the air and indirectly cleanse the quality of the air. The color of the plants is a natural antidote to tired eyesight and it also brighten up the indoor space. Most importantly, the recommended list of plants here are not difficult to maintain. We should embellish our house with these beneficial plants and then, sit back and relax. Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

  11. Alice Tay on Oct 16, 2016 at 1:30 am

    This is a very useful information for those who want to have good air quality in their home with the plants that do not require much water.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

  12. Vivian Ong on Oct 16, 2016 at 1:05 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this informative article. I really didn’t know that the plants that we always see in most houses serves the various purpose of cleaning the air quality. I really feel like getting one for my home now too 😉

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

  13. Wah Ying on Oct 16, 2016 at 1:00 am

    It;s time to opt for natural ways to cleanse our air – by planting more plants that are able to absord harmful agents in the air. For me, golden pothos and aloe are easy to plant. I have tried to plant ivy for many times but unsuccessful..hihi. This blog just like a cave of treasure, provides everything from spiritual, Buddhism knowledge, teachnology and science, paranormal and natural remedies, even parenting tips. Thank you 🙂

  14. Darren on Oct 15, 2016 at 3:33 pm

    Thank you for the sharing , interesting info about home plant.

  15. Lin Mun on Oct 14, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    This is an interesting articles. I didn’t know that some of these plants can purify chemicals in the air.

    It is always good to have some plants in the house to purify the air. Some of the plants above are also good as a decorative item and easy to take care. Good to put some small pots in the office too.

  16. Sarah Yap on Oct 14, 2016 at 2:39 am

    Very nice article! I absolutely love having plants indoors, even if they’re fake! But of course having a real living plant is the best as some of these indoor plants are capable of purifying the air naturally, rather than using air purifiers.

    Here’s a picture I found online that shows you the types of plants (on top of the above 10 plants) which you can plant indoor (home or offices). As mentioned above, they are low maintenance and they need very little sunlight to survive, which is a must if they’re going to be indoors!

    I love the Peace Lily, they are so beautiful hehe.

  17. Bradley Kassian on Oct 13, 2016 at 11:45 pm

    Dracaena, Spider plant and Aloe. Are the ones I use in the home. Very easy to maintain, all three don’t require regular watering. The aloe is good for releasing oxygen into the air of a bedroom and is so versitile for bug bites, and burns. If I had to add three more to this list I’d recommend Lavender, Rosemary, & Lipstick plant.

  18. Samfoonheei on Oct 13, 2016 at 9:35 pm

    Interesting article..to know there’s house plant that can purify the air in our house and can elevate mood, enhance creativity, promote wellness too.I did not know all these till i read this article.Aloe ,snake plant spider plant, Dracena plant and so forth are excellent at filtering out chemicals.I planted .aloe but only know it relieve cuts and burns …now i know more.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these interesting and informative article with us.

  19. Victoria Lam on Oct 13, 2016 at 8:54 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the benefits of the indoor plants.

    The natures’ will enhance the creativity. The most beneficial is to help to purify the air from the environment.

    I always do recommend to my clients who are working in hairdressers, do more houseplant in their working station because the plants will help to purify the chemicals from their indoor.
    It is more benefits to their lungs and customers feel is more relax and cozy with the plants environment.

    Thank you.

    Its great sharing …… Rinpoche’s biography “The Promise” in Mongolian for those Mongolian friends .May more and more people do read it to understand better about Rinpoche and the Dorje Shugden controversy.

    Interesting biography of a great and influential Gelug religious lady……the Lady Lhalu Lhacham Yangdzom Tsering, who was one of the most popular and also an important aristocratic students of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche. She was one of the influential Gelug religious figures in the Lhasa at that time. The Lhacham’s devotion to the controversial protector deity Dorje Shugden whose practice she received from Kyabje Phabongkha Rinpoche is beautifully reflected in her deep spiritual conviction in the very deities and practices. Interesting read of a GREAT spiritual lady of how she struggles in life and never gave up her commitments to her guru Kyabje Pabongka Dorjechang. Her dertermination, motivation and inspiration are indeed incredible .
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu.

    Sakya Pandita is believed to have been an emanation of Manjushri and just like other great beings, when he was born, several auspicious signs appeared such as at the time of his birth, the sky was awash with a great light, a certain special physical marks on his body etc.

    It is very impressive that he learned to read both Sanskrit and Tibetan scripts without being taught. On one incident, Shakyashri Bhadra was giving teachings in Sanskrit but Sakya Pandita was seen referring to a Tibetan text. Nevertheless, Sakya Pandita was still able to understand his guru’s teachings perfectly. Besides, During the 13-day debate between Sakya Pandita and Harinanda (the six non-Buddhist Indian pandits) and Harinanda could not win the argument. Finally, Harinanda said, “It is not you I cannot defeat, it is the orange being sitting above your right shoulder.” This showed that Sakya Panidita is no different from Manjushri.

    Thank you Rinpoche and Pastor David for this meaningful post.

    The Body of a Buddha: A Road Map to Liberation

    In Buddhism, we often pray to the statues or representations of the Buddha. Many people said that we are idolistic but actually we are praying to the virtues and good quality that Buddha’s body represents. We do not pray to the statue just because it is in the form of a Buddha, we pray because we wish to achieve the same qualities of the body that manifested into these signs.

    The Buddha’s body consists of 112 marks where 32 of them are major signs and 80 minor signs. Each and every one of these signs represent the virtues that Buddha had practised over 3 great aeons to achieve what he is today, enlightened.

    Every single one of the signs is the guideline for us to practice. For example, the dharma wheel at the bottom of Buddha’s feet means that we should have the selfless attitude when we serve other and one of the best ways is to teach them Dharma. The Buddha has said, the best gift is the gift of Dharma.

    Pabongka Rinpoche and his yogini student, the Lady Lhalu

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing about this incredible lady with us. She is very inspiring and she showed us that with her unwavering guru devotion towards Kyabe Pabongkha Rinpoche bears fruit when she attained high attainments and stayed in Tukdam for 3 days when she passes away.

    Lady Lhalu is incredible because being an aristocrat, she enjoyed a life of leisure. However, that did not deter her from a life of spirituality. She was one of Pabongkha Rinpoche’s main sponsor that time and she was the one who requested the teachings of the famous 24 days Lamrim teachings which proven to be very beneficial when Trijang Rinpoche compiled notes on the teachings and published them later as a book called Lamrim.

    Until today, this book is still being used by Buddhist centres all over the world. Here in Kechara, we too used this book as the main reference in our Dharma classes and the profound teaching has benefited alot of people.

    Read more about Lady Lhalu here:

    Do you believe in reincarnation? Buddhists believe after people die, the consciousness will take rebirth again and again. The consciousness can take rebirth as a human, animal, ghost or god. It all depends on the karma. In the US, Dr. Brain Weiss, who is a prominent psychiatrist and a leading reincarnation researcher found pieces of evidence to prove reincarnation does exist.

    The bigger the Buddha statue is, the better it is, because more beings can be blessed by seeing the Buddha statue. Not only that, dharma seeds will be planted in the mind of those who see the Buddha statue as well. It is said that a big outdoor Buddha statue can help to calm the surrounding environment and pacify natural disasters. We have some big outdoor statues in Malaysia too. If you have not heard of them, do read the article below to learn more.

    Guava is a very common fruit in Malaysia, they can be found easily in the markets and supermarkets. They might not look very attractive, but they are full of goodness for our health. Some of the benefits of Guava including relieving diarrhea & dysentery, acting as an effective laxative, boosting our immunity, just to name a few.

    Shocking to know the history of the American-Japanese during the WWII in 1942, where discrimination did happened at that time. The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people is really sad. Rinpoche did experienced the share of discrimination within the Kalmyk community in New Jersey years back. Looks like it happen every now and then in our society. Many thousands of Japanese Americans suffered badly , sent into interior camps, land, housing, businesses and lives were all taken away. Thanks to the photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. who has been tracking down wartime pictures. Looking through pictures, paints a thousand words of sorrow, suffering those Japanese Americans had gone through. Even what they went through , they did not give up but made them stronger in fact to be what they are today. They were citizens of American yet it was an injustice to them. There are similarities happening to those who practiced Dorje Shugden. The practitioners were denied services to schools, medical treatment, hotel and so forth.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Seeing the Kechara flag in the pictures being flown are indeed wonderful. Flying with our country and state flags paints a thousand words of joy. Glad to come across this old post which explained the meaning behind it. Wow ….so it was designed by Rinpoche , have each stroke of wording and the white background representing the clear, luminous mind of enlightenment, of the state of peace and the state of happiness which we strive to achieve. Beautifully done.
    Thank you Rinpoche for spending the explanation for the design of the flag which I did not know at all . i am glad i read this old post.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

I requesed His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche to write out the mantra of Vajra Yogini. He immediately compassionately obliged me. This is the mantra as written by His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. I\'ve had this in a safe plastic wrap and wore it around my neck in a small yellow cloth \'bag\' for many years. Tsem Rinpoche

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  • If there were more schools like this, then our kids would grow up with more caring awareness and kind emotions towards our environment and the people around them.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
