littlegren's favourite indoor plants for air purification

1. peace lily

    You may have seen this plant called by its original name, Spathiphyllum. But don't worry! Thanks to our team of experts and some good ol' fashioned know-how, we've changed it for you to the much more playful "Peace Lily".

    2. spider plant

      Add some green to your life with this cool and easy flower! One of the few jungle plants that appreciate the indoor conditions, spider plant is a delightful houseplant for any space. Don't be fooled by its name; it's not an insect at all but just one of many names it has been called over time. They grow well on windowsills too so they can catch rays from outside in winter months when sun exposure isn't present. The long vines thrive against a variety of light situations - brilliant or shaded, coming from natural sunlight or artificial lights indoors. Their sturdy leaves make great accents to groupings and interestingly enough, their hairy roots
