Whether or not you add houseplants to your healthy house depends
on your own sensitivities. On the plus side, houseplants may actually
improve your indoor air quality by acting as natural filters for some
pollutants. On the negative side, plants may add to indoor air
pollution by adding to a home's humidity levels and providing a
breeding ground for mold and other biological organisms.
While researching natural indoor air filters for space
habitation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
discovered that some plants are more effective than others at
filtering certain pollutants.
