 Peace Lilies are a beautiful plant. The white flowers add a sense of softness. Peace lilies can be both indoor and outdoor plants but they thrive indoors. Pop the pot in a dark corner and water once a week and it will purify the air.#

Snake Plant

A snake plant is such an easy plant to keep alive. The main point is to not over water. This evergreen plant absorbs toxins from your home. While it enjoys bright light, it can also endure low light positions.

I think a lot of us will have English Ivy somewhere in our gardens but it makes a great house plant. Ivy cleanses the air and helps reduce mould. Keep it alive with medium light and water well.
