The researchers looked specifically for plants that had the ability to absorb volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, that are potentially harmful pollutants coming from paint, furniture, and other household products.

The team conducted precise experiments to determine the efficiency and capability of different types of houseplants.

The bromeliad plant performed the best as it managed to clean up 80% of the pollutants in six of the 8 VOCs tested. The dracaena absorbed 94% of the chemical acetone. Spider plants were very fast at removing VOCs, starting work a few minutes after placing inside the container.
