5 Best Allergy Friendly House Plants

Did you know certain plants can help clear the air in your home? NASA’s official Clean Air Study sets the record straight. Here’s a quick list of the plants to have in your home:

1. The Areca Palm

The most efficient air humidifier. You can count on the Areca Palm to keep your home moist when it’s dry, like in winter.

2. The Lady Palm

This versatile air-purifying plant thrives in dry or humid climates, and resists most types of plant-eating insects.

3. The Bamboo Palm

A little higher-maintenance than the first two on this list, the Bamboo Palm thrives when kept moist (but not wet) in indirect sunlight, and is a great air purifier.

4. The Dracaena

Nicknamed the “Janet Craig” after a prominent nurseryman’s daughter, the Dracaena is beautiful and versatile, with shiny deep-green leaves. It is renowned for trapping allergens in its leaves.

5. Other Options: Colorful Houseplants

There are some bright, colorful plants that produce pollens that are heavier and stickier. Plus, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions. Consider the Peace Lily, Marginata or English Ivy.
