Aglaonemas

Aglaonemas or Chinese Evergreens are some of the most widely used and durable tropical plants. They were cultivated for many years in China before they made their way to Europe, but nowadays they are ubiquitous in office and interior settings. They can thrive in low-light and are also good for cleaning the air and ridding it of toxins like toluene and xylene.

Schefflera

Schefflera are great “investment plants” because they’re easy to take care of and will last a really long time. Just make sure you keep the leaves free of dust by wiping them off from time to time. They’re also known to soak up nasty toxins like benzene, formaldehyde and toluene so they’re good for households where there’s a smoker.
