Stale air in the house, these plants help you clean it: a healthy touch for your health


What plants purify the air?

Let’s see which are the best indoor plants capable of absorbing humidity from the environment and at the same time helping to  eliminate humidity that sticks to walls, floors and ceilings:

  • Orchids

The orchid does not need to be in a pot to live. In addition,  it absorbs water from its environment thanks to its roots.

However, we must not forget that the orchid  must be placed in a bright place  and wetted approximately once a week with low-calcareous water.

A few simple actions will allow you to maintain not only good growth but also long flowering.

In addition, this plant will be able to absorb  heavy air and bad odors, thus purifying the environment.

By absorbing moisture from the air, the roots strengthen, which is why the orchid  should be placed in humid rooms, such as the bathroom and kitchen.

In this case it is  a plant with long and shiny leaves  , with an elegant appearance. The fern is able to filter impure air and pollutants, helping to purify the air in the home. Not only that, but  it also neutralizes unpleasant odors caused by moisture buildup.


The Babylonian fern is another type of  plant that absorbs moisture from the air  and acts as a dehumidifying plant, much appreciated for the brightness of its leaves. This plant  can also be planted in a pot  , although it will need to be placed high up so that the leaves do not spread out too much.

  • Aloe vera

Aloe vera,  a succulent plant,  has been used medicinally for centuries. This  one-of-a-kind plant reduces humidity  , can be grown indoors all year round, and fits perfectly into any environment thanks to its  showy green leaves.
