All things green at NASA

All things green at NASA When it comes to air quality, we haven't a clue what we're breathing most of the time. Toxic chemicals sneak around undetected in the air, and sometimes it only takes a few breaths before they affect you.

NASA carried out a study to see which plants cleaned the air the best, here's what they found. Click here for a copy of the original report.

Top 3 Plants For Cleaning The Air

The top three plants were:

Chrysanthemum morifolium (Florists Chrysanthemum)

Spathiphyllum 'Mauna Loa' (Peace Lily)

Sanseveria trifasciata 'Laurenti' (Varigated Snake Plant/Mother in Law's tongue)

All these removed Trichloroethylene, Xylene, Formaldehyde and Benzene from the air, with the Chrysanthemum and Peace lily also getting rid of Ammonia.
