Ficus ginseng: against ammonia, glues and paints

Its decorative trunk, specific to this variety, should win you over in the first place: it gives the plant a unique look. In fact, ginseng is the Chinese name for the root of ginger, which is credited with medicinal properties. Its green and shiny foliage is also very pleasant. In short, Ficus Ginseng has a positive effect on the environment and human health. Its depolluting power acts in particular on ammonia in detergents, formaldehyde in chipboard furniture, paints and glues. Ideally placed in the living room or any other bright room (and moreover recently furnished), it is an easy to care plant. Just watch out for drafts and excess standing water.

Tillandsia: general purifying and anti-humidity

The primary peculiarity of this epiphytic plant is that it can thrive with or without soil, either on a bed of lichen or moss.

Suddenly, it feeds on the surrounding air and this is its entire purifying power: it absorbs moisture.

Suspended or on a piece of furniture, it also has this unique graphic allure.

A plant that is both wild, simple and innovative, Tillandsia, nicknamed "daughter of the air", is very easy to adapt to any interior.

Anthurium: against volatile organic compounds and ammonia

The classic red anthurium, also called "tongue of fire", is the symbol of exotic beauty.

Its presence and its need to be bathed in light make it suitable for the living room or the kitchen because it cleans the air very well of ammonia.

It also feels very good in the bathroom thanks to the high ambient humidity. Yep, anthurium doesn’t like dry air!

Other plants also have depolluting properties. These include ficus, ivy, azalea, chlorophytum, dracaena, sansevière, pilea, aglaoneme, fern and even philodendron.
