    Supposedly spider plants in the home will get rid of certain toxicity like from new carpeting or other chemical fumes.

    My favorite plant that I would like to add to the list is Ficus Elastica, commonly known as rubber plants. They are very effective in removing toxins in the air and very easy to grow as well. Here is some more info Rubber Plants (Ficus elastica)

    Thank you Rama for the reply. I heard that bamboo also purifies the air

    Don't know much about the plants that emit oxygen but I do know that certain plants absorb a lot of toxins and pollutants like formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and trichloroethylene.

    Here are some of them
    Philodendrons - heart leaf
    Money plant (pothos)
    Certain palms - areca, reed and dwarf date
    Boston fern
    Weeping fig
    Peace lily
    English ivy
    I learnt that flowering plants - gerber daisy and chrysanthemum
    and snake plant (mother-in-law's tongue) are also good toxin removers.
