It is popularly known that all plants generate oxygen. In the case of houseplants, this means that they can help freshen stale indoor air and even remove some of the common pollutants you may find in your Conroe rental property. While reports have indicated that you will require over 600 plants to completely purify the air in a 1,500-square-foot house, adding a few plants can still produce measurable improvements in indoor air quality.

Several of the more popular indoor plants help boost oxygen levels and remove toxins like xylene, formaldehyde, and toluene from the air. The most common houseplants with the expertise to improve air quality include spider plants, succulents like aloe vera, the peace lily, lavender, and Boston ferns. A lot of these plants come with a pleasant fragrance to boot.

While specialists are not sure why plants have this effect, the prevailing theory suggests that humans have a need to connect with nature. When we do, the result is a lot of joy.

While just the act of taking care of any houseplant can make you feel happier, particular plants are better than others. For instance, when trying to avoid a case of the blues, research shows that no plant does a better job than the snake plant. Acknowledged for its tall sword-shaped leaves and low maintenance requirements, the snake plant is both hardy and easy to grow. This is one of the best houseplants you can have to clean airborne toxins from the air. Yet it does something that other houseplants don’t do: it releases fresh oxygen into the air at night. Adding one or two of these plants in a bedroom can significantly improve air quality, leading to better sleep and an improved mood.
