- The Tried & True Ficus
Ficus houseplants have been popular for generations. They’re noted for their striking appearance as much as they are for their ability to purify indoor air.

Bamboo palms help you bring a tropical feel to your home, while also reducing the airborne formaldehyde that frequently accompanies new furniture additions to your home.

Just be careful not to water the Bamboo Palm too frequently and it’ll add season after season of tropical delight to your home.
