Adding Houseplants + Memorial Day greeting


I have gotten my living room space a bit more to my satisfaction now. Its been alot of work,and not easy for me physically ,but I am liking how its coming together. I have decided to add about three or four houseplants to the space.  I researched to see which ones were the best for making the air in the home more healthy. I came up with a list of 19 plants found here,that clean the air and remove toxins! I have already purchased a small Schefflera plant and will be buying a few more from the list as time goes by. Of course, if you have animals,you must be careful because most of these plants on the list are poisonous to cats and dogs,and some are listed as poisonous even to small children.

Our family isn't doing much for Memorial day this year,other things are being attended to! Such as, my eldest son is moving into a new home,and some of the family will be helping him!
 I am very appreciative to all our military services,and give my thanks for all they do...past,present,and future! With all the many problems our country has at this time,there is still so very much to be grateful for. I am still very thankful to be living in the land of the free ,and the home of the brave.

Thanks for that link, Shelley. I had just bought a small schefflera myself because they're one of my favorites. I'm glad to read that they help purify the air and I am inspired now to get more of the ones from the list. Have a blessed weekend! Twyla

I need to get some more houseplants, too. I remember the aloe vera plants are supposed to be good. Enjoy your weekend my friend.

Happy Memorial Day. I just realized that your youngest son and my youngest son are both in the military. Something about the youngest...!

I think philodendrons do very well without needing sun. And spider plants are fun to watch grow with their babies!
