10 air purifying house plants for the bedroom

Want to grow house plants that remove toxins from the air while you sleep? We've picked 10 to grow.

House plants have the ability to purify the air. Indeed, a study conducted by Nasa in 1989 concluded that some plants are better for purifying the air than others, removing harmful toxins such as formaldehyde, benzine and other toxins found in cleaning products, paints and flame-retardants commonly found in the modern home.

It makes sense, therefore, to grow air purifying plants in the bedroom. Not only will the presence of plants create the perfect environment for dropping off to sleep, but the combination of extra oxygen, and an absence of toxins, will give you the best chance of a good night’s rest.
