12 Air Purifying Plants You Need in Your Home

Alright guys, lately I’ve become a bit interested (totally an understatement) in house plants. When I was younger, I thought they were just something grandparents had around their home. But now after seeing them (everywhere on the internet) in cool looking DIY crafted hanging pots I could never make, I’m beginning to think otherwise.

Now instead of just doing a curated list of indoor plants to dress up your home, I decided I’d do one that also purify your air. Why not have your place look stylish and be good to your health? So check them out and let me know what you think!
