Air pollution is a major concern these days and science has come up with many advancements to reduce it. But, even though technology excels in this job, it cannot beat the air-purifying power of plants. Plants are long-lasting, eco-friendly and best of all, very cost-effective. So, even with shallow pockets, you can buy plants without any worries. Since not all plants can be efficient, we’ve put together a list of the top 3 effective green babies that will purify your surroundings without burning a hole in your pocket. Take a look at them below.
As per NASA's recent air purification study, the mother-in-law's tongue is good for your health! Studies have shown that snake plants can purify oxygen at a fast and constant pace. They are also effective in removing toxins like formaldehyde, xylene, benzene, toluene and trichloroethylene from the air. So, even if you are living in a crowded space, you will have a whiff of fresh air 24*7.
Wondering what makes it budget-friendly? Your answer lies in its availability and maintenance. These days, you can get snake plants at any nook and corner as they are resilient to almost everything. This makes it easy to keep for the plant nursery owners, shopkeepers and of course you! Also, the plant knows how to embrace solitude, which means you don’t have to spend much time or money to maintain it. Just a cup of water will keep the snake plant happy.
Red-Edged Dracaena Plant
If you are one of those who love to have-it-all under your budget, then dragon tree is a must-have for you. Apart from eliminating trichloroethylene, xylene and obviously carbon dioxide, the plant can bring back the colour red into your environment. This plant has bright red-green coloured, long-spiked leaves, so it would definitely be eye candy for visitors.
Is it a good bargain? Well of course! The plant can thrive in all seasons without much attention. Whether you keep it under sunlight or shade, the plant will produce a good amount of oxygen. Moreover, the red-edged dracaena plant is not needy when it comes to water or fertilisation.
While most air-purifying plants are known for purifying air, rubber plants are known for something more. As science says, rubber plants can absorb dust, moulds, bacteria, moisture and other types of elements that make it hard for you to breathe. This is primarily because the plant has thick and round leaves which give it a bigger surface area to process the air. So, if you want your air to be clean, then the rubber plant is for you.
Now the key question is what makes it easy on our pockets. Well, like a snake plant, the rubber plant is a survivor. It can survive in any pot, season, temperature or light, provided it’s hydrated adequately.
