Green Your Home with House Plants (video)

You’ll enjoy watching this just for the greenery; the advice is a bonus. Did you know that plants absorb toxins and emit oxygen in return? A NASA study reveals that houseplants can remove up to 87 percent of toxic indoor air within 24 hours.

This video gives you useful advice on what kind of plants to buy and how to care for them. For example, if you travel you should buy succulents that only have to be watered every couple of weeks.

Watch the video then head down to your favorite plant store.
