Houseplants provide functionality while also serving an aesthetic purpose in any room. They convert carbon dioxide to oxygen in addition to removing toxins such as benzene and formaldehyde, improving air quality in your home. Houseplants make a great addition to classrooms, health care offices, or to your personal office or home. Since many tropicals are able to flourish in lower light, their leaf composition allows them to photosynthesize well in household light. To optimize air quality by using houseplants, it is suggested that you use one plant per 100 square feet. Below is a list of some air purifying plants.

Orchids are ornate, unique and eyecatching plants. Often given as a gift, Orchids love bright, natural light and can bloom for months! Choose a plant that has many buds as well as blooms and it'll last even longer. When your orchid is finished blooming, don't throw it out! Cut the stem back to 1-2 inches from the base and reduce your frequency of watering. Your plant will go into a dormant period to conserve energy to produce the next flower stem. The most common orchid you will see is a Phalaenopsis. Below are the many colours of a Phalaenopsis as well as some other varieties of orchids such as Wildcat and Vanda.
Plants are a great way to keep a room or office green, fresh and clean. However, not everyone has the space by a bright, sunny window. There are many low light loving plants that also act as air purifiers. Each plant has its own required care, such as watering and maintenance but all grow well in low lighting. Lucky Bamboo, Money Tree, Cutleaf Philodendron and Spider Plants are just a few of the plants needing very little natural light. Below are some pictures of other Low Light Lovers!
Tropicals do not always have to be kept indoors. Many can be added to outdoor landscapes to provide a seasonal splash of colour to your porch, patio or poolside. As fall approaches, they can be treated and taken indoors to serve as houseplants. Here you can see some flowering tropicals also used in summer planters!
Cactus and Succulents are fantastic, easy-to-grow plants! Ideal for the forgetful grower, all cactus and succulents require little water but they like a sunny window sill. Put a single Echeveria in a well-draining pot or create your own mixed cactus terrarium complete with cactus soil and decorative rocks. Below are some sample, regularly stocked cactus and succulents.
