It’s no surprise that the current demand for houseplants is growing. They are nice to look at and transform the place into an urban jungle, no matter whether you have a big city loft or a shared room. And more than that, they have superpowers. These plants freshen the air you’re breathing by filtering out pollutants emitted by furniture, varnish, paint, plastics, and chemical cleaning agents. Come summertime, when you open your windows, your green guardian angels protect you from pollen and car exhaust fumes. Just one plant per 10 square metres works wonders. Most of them expect next to nothing in return, so don’t worry if you’re missing a green thumb. The best air purifying plants are often uncomplicated.
