Let's talk air purifying / easy care plants @ Nursery Eleguas INC

I am no expert at this (Let me just clear the air with that) but I can assure you, that I've killed enough plants to know how to properly care for them NOW 😉. So with all of this being said, and with no guilt trip on my side after confessing, I can explain to you a bit about these AAAMAZING plants, that not only add a beautiful live decor to your home, but can also keep it safe and free of toxins and chemicals!!! Let me not forget to mention that some of them emit oxygen. WHAT?!!! yup oxygen! sooo... pretty much I consider these lovely ladies, to be somewhat the comparison to Santa's elfs. They work year round to keep a safe and lovely environment at home but it's Santa that gets all the credit at the end.  So let's give them (if purchased) a lot of love and care because the fat man can't always get all the credit at the end. 

I have narrowed down, my top six most favorite air purifying plants. Tips for their care, what chemicals they remove from our home, their many names and how to physically identify them!
