Ficus Decora Cleans the Air

A few years back NASA did a study to determine which indoor plants best cleaned the air  and came up with a top 25 list.  Many of the the plants that Everything Grows offers with its interior plant service are on the list.  

One of them is the Ficus Decora known as the Rubber Plant. It is a hardy indoor plant that can tolerate lower light levels found in indoor environments.  Not only does this plant produce oxygen from Carbon Dioxide, but it also absorbs harmful formaldehyde.

Here is a picture of a small Ficus Decora with its dark shiny leaves:

Spotlight: Cast Iron Plant

Aspidistras are called the cast-iron plant because they can tolerate poor growing conditions such as weak light and low temperatures which would kill many other interior plants.



 It is an old-fashioned tough interior plant. In fact the Aspidistra was a favorite indoor plant during the Victorian era when houses were anything but bright and airy. Today, in the warmer climate of the Southern United States, you will find Aspidistra usually growing completely carefree as a ground cover in dense, dark shade.

It takes considerable time to grow an Aspidistra to specimen size. Ironically, it is not always available in nurseries. This is partly because of its slow growth and not being properly appreciated. Aspidistras is usually grown in 6″, 8″; and 10″ pots. As a bushy potted plant 12 to 24 inches tall and wide the Aspidistra is a perfect plant for indoors. Aspidistra is an ideal plant for that cooler area of your work space to bring the tropics indoors.
Aspidistra tolerates:

- dust as well as heat, cold, wet soil, drought, neglect and dimly lighted places.
- temperatures as low as 28 degrees without injury to the foliage.
- low light levels.
