Hello, Flower Doctor here,
The plants that we have available in store aren't just a pretty face.
Our plants filter out common volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Phaeleonopsis Orchids have a bad reputation as being finicky and difficult to grow, but really, the opposite is true. Most people end up killing their orchids with kindness (too much water and sunlight). Aside from being easy to take care of, orchids rid the air of xylene, a pollutant found in many glues and paints so they make wonderful housewarming gifts for anyone who recently moved into or renovated a new space. Unlike some other plants, orchids also respire and give off oxygen at night – so they’re great for the bedroom.
Spathiphyllum like shade and weekly watering that's all the peace lily needs to survive and produce blooms. It topped NASA’s list for removing all three of most common volatile organic compounds (VOCs) — formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene. It can also combat toluene and xylene.
Anthuriums make lovely gifts because of their exotic-looking blooms. Their large, dark leaves suck up ammonia, formaldehyde, toluene and xylene, so they're a thoughtful present for a workplace and home offices (especially around copiers, printers or adhesives).
