Air-Purifying Plants to Freshen Up Your Room

If you’ve read any home & garden magazine or scoped Instagram, then you know that plants are what make your dorm or apartment feel and look like a home. Houseplants are not only a great way to decorate your space (and look ah-mazing on the ‘gram), but they also have some incredibly beneficial qualities. 


Perfect for your dorm room

They can brighten up the room, ward off colds and flu, and help you to get a better night’s sleep, but did you know that some can even purify the air? According to Costa Farms, houseplants take in excess carbon dioxide in the air and then produce “life-giving” oxygen to help you breath better. In a stuffy and cramped space like a dorm, a potted houseplant will definitely freshen up the air while adding a much-needed splash of color.

Peace Lily: Peace lilies are super popular and attractive houseplants that have dark green leaves and white blossoms. They’re small but pack some major air-purifying abilities. A peace lily removes toxins such as ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene, according to Costa Farms. So, it will definitely keep your air clean and fresh. 

Snake Plant: This is probably the easiest plant to grow and maintain, so it’s perfect for us on-the-go college students. Snake Plants are known as a great air-cleaning plant that removes traces of benzene and formaldehyde. It adjusts well to different levels of light, but they prefer to be in indirect sunlight. As well, the plant requires minimal watering. You most likely will only need to water the plant once a week or every two weeks. The vertical and striped leaves not only add height to a room but also gives a trendy and modern feel to it. If you can’t devote a ton of time to a plant, then I highly suggest you get a snake plant.
