Embrace These 6 Indoor Plants During Allergy Season



Are your allergies going haywire this season? Fortunately, your living home decor doesn't have to suffer the consequences. Take control of your home with these allergy-friendly houseplants that won't give you a headache. Plus, they're pretty easy to take care of!

  1. Dracaena Marginata – Spruce up your living room with this woody, easy-care, durable houseplant. Its long thin green leaves with dark red trim will also give a nice pop of color!

  2. Bamboo Palm – Bring some color and warmth to your bedroom with potted bamboo palms. This plant won’t even need bright light to thrive! Just put it somewhere where it has room to grow, as they can grow several feet tall.

  3. Lady Palm – This super adaptable plant can fill some of that empty space in your entryway. These plants will grow pretty tall and just as wide, so put it in a pretty large pot!

  4. Areca Palm – Also known as the Butterfly Palm, this plant is one of the most popular indoor houseplants today. These plants are more of a temporary presence, as they will turn yellow and droop, no matter how well you take care of it.

  5. Peace Lily – Okay, so they’re not true lilies. But, they’re super easy to care for, and they’ll even tell you when they need some water. When it isn’t droopy, it is breaking down toxic gases in your home environment.

  6. Chinese Evergreen – Another very popular houseplant that’s easy to take care of, Chinese Evergreens will do best in well-draining soil and low light conditions. Throw one of these in your bathroom and admire its beauty when you’re brushing your teeth in the morning.
