How to Grow Fresh Air

I’ve always known that orchids are good for me, and now I have proof in How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 House Plants that Purify Your Home or Office by Dr. B.C. Wolverton. Common orchid varieties like Phals and Dendrobiums are among the top houseplants to filter airborne toxins. Wolverton details the best plants to clean dangerous pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene, and chloroform. The author includes helpful ratings for each plant, showing ease of care, resistance to pests, and efficiency at removing chemical vapors. Better than any electronic air cleaners, these plants don’t run up your electric bill or require expensive filters. The author also points out, contrary to popular myth, that indoor plants suppress mold spores, bacteria, and harmful microbes in the air. They’re the perfect solution, whether you’re fighting sick building syndrome, or just looking for a little extra oxygen and humidity. Give the gift of clean air by giving an orchid, or by giving this helpful, practical book.
