new indoor plants
These are my new babies. Please witness the fact that they are young and still alive. I am determined to give them a long happy life.
More often than not, our indoor space is more toxic than the outdoor space!! I think I knew this, but learning it again just recently made me step it up. These indoor plants naturally clean the air of toxins. Toxins come in the form of our industrial strength cleaners, our furniture that is probably still off gassing, PVC shower curtains that can take as long as 10 years to off gas (yikes!), and simply from the lack of venilation in the house.
My favorite plant is the peacock at the bottom right corner. I got these recommendations from a great book called How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office.
