Earlier, houseplants were only considered as the province of an older generation, that too for the one who had time, knowledge and space to tend them. However, they are now also popular with a younger and cooler crowd.

If you or anyone in your family has allergies, smokes or just wants to breathe fresher, cleaner air in their homes, Rajesh Goyal, MD, RG Group and Ashwani Prakash, Executive Director, Paramount Group, tell about the plants that purify the air around you, plants that act as green and long lasting gifts, as well as which specific pollutant each one targets and removes.

  • Palms: Our Spirit Boosters

  • Peace Lilies: Natural Toxin Removers

    Peace lilies spread freshness for a longer period of time. They thrive in the shade in temperatures below 12 degrees Celsius and remove harmful toxins like acetone, ammonia, benzene, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde, methyl alcohol, trichloroethylene, and xylene.
  • Ferns: Natural History

    Ferns are not as fascinating but have survived since pre-historic times. Their soft feathery leaves contribute to increasing their preference. Also, by freeing the air from toluene and xylene, they help us get rid of air pollution.
  • Schefflera: Great Investment Plants

    Schefflera is the ones with glossy, sturdy-looking oval leaves that almost look unreal because of their waxy shine. Adding to this, they also soak up nasty toxins like benzene, formaldehyde, and toluene so, like palms, they are good for households where there is a smoker.
  • Anthuriums: Thoughtful Present for a Workplace
