3. Dracaena plants remove toxins from the air, but if you have pets be sure to keep the plant up high. They can be poisonous to cats and dogs.

5. The peace lily's beautiful summer flowers are surprisingly hearty and the plant is great at cleaning up your indoor air.


6. The Boston fern is a fan of high humidity and indirect light, so it's a very good bathroom plant.
