  • I started filling up my house with plants last year. At that time, I had just started converting to natural products for everything, even air cleaning! I wrote a nice post on it....h

    The bottom line is... it DOES work. Pay attention to the plants that clean the well (see my post), as not all have the same rate of cleaning. Also, having dirt exposed it important, so don't cover it all with moss or anything to make it prettier - some of the cleaning function comes from the bacteria in the soil :)

  • My mother and my sister love to grow plants, but I can kill fake plants by touching them.

  • They probably do. But I only have plants that are growing outside on their own! Me and green do not go well together!

  • I have lots of indoor plants. Not sure that they clean the air though.
