15 houseplants for improving indoor air quality - Chinese evergreen
I just recently bought an aloe plant, thinking it would be good to have on hand for the healing skin properties -- great to know it's also beneficial for the air!
Though it is listed as a Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema Crispum 'Deborah'), that might be a variety of Dieffenbachia (Areacae or Arum family). I have one just like the picture, even with the buds. Refer to Dr D.G. Hessayon's The Indoor Plant Spotter. The two plants are very similar so it could be either although the Dieffenbachia has broader leaves. I've allowed mine to get too much of a stem, due to various factors, to give that false Palm appearance.
Diffenbachias are harmful to your animals because the animals throat swells after biting the plant leaves, causing sufication. Be aware of what you bring in..:)
Actually, they do have this listed correctly. It is a Chinese Evergreen.
