Rubber plants, spider pants and mother-in-law's tongue are all plants that were popular house plants in the 60s ad 70s. I wonder if they know of their benefits back then?

Brilliant article! I'll be heading down to my garden centre shortly to pick up some of these gems. I get asthma so this is extremely helpful. Thank you.

No other home accessory does quite the same for a space as indoor plants. Any room without some greenery seems somewhat lifeless. Having said that, to me, having no plants is better than having fake plants.
