Did you know that houseplants can clean the air in your home? There are a variety of popular indoor plants that are beneficial to have in your home for removing pollutants (found in paints, wallpapers, plastics, detergents and cosmetics), giving out oxygen and combating carbon dioxide. Some of the best include Draceana, Snake plants, Sanseveria, Aloe Vera, Chlorophytum (Spider plant), Phalaenopsis orchids, Ficus (Weeping figs) and Spathiphyllum (Peace Lily).

Situated just inside the entrance and on the mezzanine level, our houseplant selection includes cacti, foliage, citrus, bonsai and orchids.

Boston fern

With its mass of lush green foliage, the Boston fern is thought to be one of the best air purifying houseplants. This evergreen plant not only helps to rid the home of harmful toxins but it improves humidity by helping restore moisture to the air naturally too.

Secrets of success

The Boston fern is relatively easy to care for but they do need to stay moist. Mist regularly and keep in a cool location out of direct sunlight.

Spider plant

Chlorophytums are known as spider plants because of their spider-like plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web. They are one of the most adaptable and easy to grow plants.

Secrets of success

Caring for spider plants is easy, making them ideal plants for new gardeners. Provide them with bright, indirect sunlight and water them well without soaking them and they will flourish.


With their colourful strap-like foliage, Dracaenas are a fairly simple houseplant to care for and can even withstand a certain amount of neglect. Best of all, Dracaena help purify the air we breathe.

Secrets of success

Place your plant in a semi-shaded location. Never place it in direct sunlight as the leaves will easily scorch. Dracaenas require less water than most indoor plants, so be careful not to overwater! Normal room temperatures will suit these plants, but a little extra humidity wouldn’t go amiss.
