6. Golden Pothos (Scindapsus Aures)

This is a popular plant to hang from the ceiling as it quickly grows into a flowing vine of cascading dark green leaves with lighter colored stripes. You might not believe it, but this plant will stay green even when kept in the dark. This plant is super great at removing formaldehyde so you might want to keep a large pot of this in the garage since your car exhaust emits tons of this toxin.


7. Weeping Fig (Ficus Benjamina)

These are more commonly known by the name Ficus and many people keep one in their living room to help clear out the pollutants caused from their carpeting and furniture. Ficus plants can keep be difficult to care for, but once you get the mix of water and sunlight just right, a ficus plant will last for years and years, cleaning toxins such as trichloroethylene, benzene, and formaldehyde.

8. Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)

This is a truly amazing plant. The more time it spends in a location, the more successful it is at removing pollutants and toxins. It likes low light areas, and often blooms with tiny little berries so it’s pretty as well as effective.


9. Red Edged Dracaena ( Dracaena Marginata)

Many people enjoy this plant because its red edges bring a little color to the normal green of most houseplants. This plant is often sold as a small pot but can grow tall enough to touch most ceilings. This beautiful plant is best at removing trichloroethylene and formaldehyde which enters your home via furniture varnishes and lacquers.


10. Bamboo Palm ( Chamaedorea Seifrizii)

The bamboo palm is a popular palm as it never grows very large and it fits into almost any décor. This would be a great plant to place near furniture that emits formaldehyde as it’s great at filtering out that poisonous gas, along with many other toxins.
