Although all plants are able to clean the air, the snake plant or golden pothos are recommended. They are extremely robust and adaptive to new environments such as the soil free environment of the Plant Air Purifier®. Plants occasionally go through a period of shock when transferred from soil to hydroculture. To ensure a successful potting process and accelerate the acclimation time using either a golden photos or snake plant is highly recommended.
For individuals with greater hydroculture experience other plants may be used but take greater care in transplanting and post-potting maintenance. The following plants are suggested for their proven toxin removal: Rubber plant, Lady Palm, Arecca Palm, Dumb Cane, Corn Plant, Warnecki Dracaenas, and Peace Lily. With significant experience there are several other plants that can be adapted to hydroculture as well.
