Arrowhead plant goes by a variety of names, including syngonium and nephthytis, is an excellent houseplant for low light. It is also a great air cleaning plant! These plants can reduce components of indoor air pollution, even volatile organic compounds such as benzene, formaldehyde, toluene, and xylene. They also reduce airborne microbes and increase humidity.
Researchers from NASA and other organizations have approved this plant as an air purifier. Syngoniums absorb pollutants into their leaves, and the toxins go to the root zone where they are transformed into nutrients for the plant. Houseplants also emit water vapors that help the plant pull polluted air to the roots where the plant converts the toxins to plant food.
