Pothos (a.k.a. Devil's Ivy)
"Pothos is one of the most common houseplants in America, and it is recommended as one of the top houseplants for improving indoor air quality," Vassilkioti informs us. It eliminates formaldehyde, xylene, carbon monoxide, benzene, toluene, and many other toxins that could be lingering around your home. Caring for this plant is easy. Just water it when the soil is dry, and make sure it gets low to medium light, but no direct sun.
