When we think of plants, the first things that come to our mind are wood, food, herbs and all the other resources they provide that we can see. Not Plants that absorb carbon dioxide! However, there’s so much more to plants that we don’t even talk about. While we are busy releasing carbon dioxide when we exhale, and other harmful substances into the air through our domestic and industrial activities, plants are the ones that show up to save the day.
By simply adding plants into our homes, businesses, court yards and gardens we can help gobble up those nasty carbon monoxide omissions and much more.
Here are some ideas for both indoor and outdoor plants that will improve our air quality.
One of the most widely used palms for bright interiors. It features feathery, arching fronds, each with up to 100 leaflets. These big, bold plants command attention.
They need bright, indirect light from a south- or west-facing window.

Also known as Transvaal daisy, gerbera daisy (Gerbera jamesonii) produces large, daisylike blooms that rise above bright green, slightly fuzzy foliage. While gerberas come in a variety of jewel tones, orange gerberas are favorites.
Gerberas require regular watering during warm, dry weather. Water is especially important when the plants are blooming
Orchids need ample water but should be allowed to dry out some between watering. One way to check for watering is by poking your finger about an inch into the growing media. If it’s dry, give it some water; otherwise, let it be. Indoor orchid plants also need adequate humidity, about fifty to seventy percent.
