None of these plants are a particularly good choice if you have pets and/or kids. They're not deadly, but they can cause problems.
THE safest and most efficient greenies are the palms (date, areca, broadleaf lady, and bamboo) and dendrobium and phaleanopsis orchids.

This was a great article-I am not familiar with Chinesae Evergreen, but I will buy some aloe plants.

Great information. I will buy Aloe plants, and definitely the Peace Lily, as I have very low light in the house.
Thank You for sharing Cher,
