Plants that purify the interior

We know that there is pollution in the air we breathe, so why not clean up this air a little in our house. Indoor plants are used for this and in addition they add a beautiful lively touch to your interior.

For this article, I admit that I did some research on the internet. So if you want more information for your particular plant, I invite you to complete my research.

The Dracaena, I have one, it is easy to maintain and very cute in decoration. It looks like a small palm tree and there are several kinds of Dracaena.

They need a lot of sun. Personally, in the summer I put her outside and I bring her inside in the fall. Here's mine.

Good light and good humidity.

Easy to maintain, requires little light.

What I like about this one is that you can take cuttings easily.

Here again, good light is needed, without direct sunlight which could burn the plant.

Watering is needed about once a week.

It should also be repotted every 2-3 years in a larger pot and preferably in the spring.

The Sansevière is an antipollution plant! It absorbs, through its foliage, the emanations of toxic substances such as

trichlorethylene and benzene.

I have it and in addition it can be used in your skin care.

It is therefore convenient to have around the house, since buying an aloe leaf is practically the same price as buying the whole plant.

On the other hand, you have to be careful if you have animals, it is a toxic plant for them. Fortunately, my cat does not touch my plants, but I still put her up.

It is part of the succulent plant family, so it needs little water and lots of sunlight. However, you have to pay attention to direct sunlight, observe your plant to see what suits it.

Ideal for beginners, because it is resistant. You still have to respect certain conditions, good humidity and a bright room. Water only when the soil is dry. It is normal for her to lose leaves from time to time, but if the frequency and quantity increase too much, go and find out more.

It has beautiful decorative foliage. Depending on the species or cultivar, they can be grooved, mottled, or dotted with silver, yellow, white, ivory, and even ribbed and edged in red. Flowering occurs at the end of summer in the form of very original white or yellow spathes.

Interestingly, its depolluting power increases with its size. This plant should not be put in full sun, which is convenient for some rooms.

Get rid of formaldehyde (no more) I did the research for you don't worry. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas that can be produced by cigarettes or certain household products and building materials. If you have a wood stove, you just painted ... it would be beneficial for you.

It takes a good light without direct sun.

Honestly, I don't have one, so I advise you to inform yourself when purchasing in the nursery!

I have it and I love it so much, because it's easy to maintain and pretty in any setting.

The lucky bamboo must first develop its roots in water before being put in the ground.

Me personally, mine are still in the water.

In this case it is necessary to change the water frequently (1-2 times a month).

You can even supplement the watering by spraying the leaves from time to time.

Perfect for a bright bedroom or bathroom, but without direct sunlight.

Interesting fact found on https://www.jardiner-malin.fr/fiche/lucky-bambou-bamboo-dracaena.html: Lucky bamboo only has "bamboo" in the shape given to it, because it does not not one of the bamboos native to Asia.

The lucky bamboo, also called "Chinese cane" is actually native to Africa.
