Add These House Plants and Enjoy Cleaner Indoor Air
1. Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
This fast-growing plant is easy to care for and requires minimal maintenance, except for clipping its offspring (that grow from shoots) for repotting.
It does best in natural but indirect light and shouldn’t sit right in front of a sunny window. Spider plants help clean the air of formaldehyde, xylene, carbon monoxide and benzene.
