A colorful showpiece that freshens the air – introducing the Croton
The croton has thick, long beautifully multi-colored leaves that filter pollutants from indoor environments. It is a delicate being that requires some care, but when happy and well it’s a gorgeous showpiece. It’s even been called the wonder plant! The Croton is native to the Pacific islands of Southeast Asia, but does well in Europe with a proper balance of indirect sunlight and moist, well-drained soil. Pick up a Haws Mister from the Be.Green accessories store – the Croton is happiest when misted regularly!
The Croton is not safe for pets and can cause skin irritation. If you’re looking for an air-purifying, pet-friendly alternative, try the elegant Parlor Palm.24€24€
Pretty and popular with a tropical air – meet Dieffenbachia
The Dieffenbachia is a lush beauty, with broad green and white leaves. It is native to the South American tropics and has a tropical flair, but grows very easily in most environments, so it is very well loved. Dieffenbachia is an air purifier, but toxic when consumed – its milky sap contains crystals that temporarily numb the vocal chords (hence it’s also knows as “Dumb Cane”) – so keep it somewhere safe to enjoy its benefits to your air quality.
If you have small children or pets in the house, the Boston Fern is a great non-toxic alternative that cleans the air.36€36€
