Houseplants can be an excellent decoration in your homes, but also they create a relaxed ambiance in almost every room of your home. A study showed that hospital patients who had plants in their rooms had much less stress in comparison with those who didn’t.
These are the 10 best plants that ease stress, purify air and are impossible to kill:
1. Rubber Tree
This type of tree grows fast and is easy to please. They can grow in dark, cool environments, and are considered one of the best houseplants that don’t need a lot of direct sunlight. The Rubber tree is a potent air purifier, making your home a more relaxed, clean environment.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera plants stay small if you keep them in a smaller pot, but grow much larger if you place them in a larger one. They don’t mind if you neglect them a little bit. Also, they have some medicinal characteristics. Aloe Vera can detox the body when a little amount is added to a smoothie or a juice, or to soothe the pain from cuts and burns on your body. Additionally, they’re good for cleaning the air of pollutants. Brown spots appear on the plant if your air quality is too poor.
3. Bamboo Palm
This tree is also part of the NASA’s list of the best plants that serve as air air-purifiers. Bamboo palm is particularly good at cleansing the air of benzene and trichloroethylene. However, this plant needs more maintenance than the other plant mentioned above. Bamboo palm needs plenty of water and indirect sunlight. The kitchen is the perfect place to be placed.
4. Peace Lily
The peace lily is another amazing and easy to grow plant. It can become huge if you put it in a larger pot, or will stay small in a smaller pot. They like not too bright places and cooler temperatures. They decrease the presence of different toxins in household.
5. Snake Plant
The snake plant needs little water or light to thrive. During the day, the plants absorb carbon dioxide, and at night, they exhale oxygen. Because of this, they are a good choice for bedrooms because the released oxygen at night will help you sleep easier and wake up refreshed.
6. English Ivy
According to NASA, English Ivy is one of the most purifying houseplants you can own, but also, there is a warning. It is extremely invasive in environments that are non-native. It is really easy to grow, but you need to keep it indoors in a pot if it doesn’t grow as a native plant in your area. The plant likes moderate temperatures and medium sunlight exposure.

9. Spider Plant
This plant can last for years and years if maintained properly. You can cut it, plant it in soil, and next you will see a few dozen of them growing. Additionally, the plant is easy to grow and is effective at absorbing benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene. It likes shadier conditions and moderate water amounts.
10. Golden Pothos
This plant easily clears formaldehyde from the air and the things that are seriously difficult to eliminate. Golden photos like cool temperatures, not too much light, and plenty of water. Also, they can be neglected, but it won’t stop them thrive.
