Do palm plants clean the air?
Keeping this in view, do plants actually clean the air?
The belief that plants are filtering and purifying the air around us can be traced to a 1989 NASA study showing that indoor plants do in fact help reduce volatile organic compounds (or VOCs) in small, sealed spaces, such as onboard NASA missions.
Similarly, how many plants do you need to clean the air? The NASA studies on indoor pollution done in 1989 recommends 15 to 18 plants in 6 to 8-inch- diameter containers to clean the air in an average 1,800 square foot house. That's roughly one plant per 100 square feet of floor space.
Similarly, it is asked, what is the best indoor plant to clean the air?

Do Philodendrons clean the air?
As a tropical plant, philodendron is particularly effective at helping the clean the air we breathe. To take advantage of its air purification qualities for a healthier home environment, place philodendron plants in every 100 square feet of living space and let it do what it does naturally.
