Living with Greens


This giant indoor palm tree which measures to about over 6 feet arrived to my house a few months ago. As soon as I started researching about the plant, I discovered that this is one out of three houseplants that can actually provide fresh air for good health.

I simply love to have greens in the house, not only do they make your place look better they also purify the air. According to the source, ‘an arrangement of common houseplants, used in specific spots in a home, can result in measurably cleaner indoor air.’ Here are those great three plants.

  1. The Areca Palm (or Chrysalidocarpus lutescens) is does great air cleansing work during the day. About 4 shoulder height plants per person should do the trick.
  2. The Mother-in-law’s Tongue (or Sansevieria trifasciata) takes over by converting CO2 to O2 at night. You want about 6 to 8 of these waist high plants per person.
  3. The Money Plant (or Epipremnum aureum) does the job of filtering out removing Formaldehyde and other VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Images above are great examples of living spaces with beautiful and beneficial greens.
