Do indoor plants really purify the air in your home? Here’s what the science says:

  • Even though some garden centers advertise house plants as a way to “eliminate air pollutants,” some scientists say there isn’t enough evidence that it does that.
  • “While there are several studies that indicate some plants can remove or reduce levels of some chemicals indoors, there is currently no evidence that a reasonable number of plants indoors can effectively control indoor air pollution,” the Environmental Protection Agency told McClatchy News, noting the agency has not done a study on the issue.
  • Every time you buy a plant, it converts the carbon dioxide we exhale and helps eliminate gases from the atmosphere, researchers said.
  • But houseplants make “at best, modest contributions of about 0.9–9% to indoor ozone removal effectiveness,” according to research published in the journal Building and Environment in 2017.
