With allergy season upon us and with us still spending time indoors, it’s an ideal time to stock up on some new air-cleaning plants. But which ones should we be buying? “Though it is true that all plants purify the air in some way or form, there are a few that do it better than others,” plant curator Riley Gallagher says. Ahead, Gallagher and Mast share the air-purifying plants they recommend most.
Scroll on to find out which clean-air producing plants are right for you and your home. Once you’ve decided which ones to go for, Gallagher advises cleaning the leaves with a damp towel about once a month or more, depending on how dusty your home gets. This will ensure carbon dioxide can go in and oxygen can come out. As the plant curator says, “A happy plant is the best breath of fresh air one can get during these quarantimes.”
