Flowers are such a universally recognized treasure and floral gifts are given everyday to millions of people. Not only are flowers and plants lovely to look at, plants help clean the air by effectively counteracting off gassed chemicals, and they also help to balance humidity. For instance, the "Heartleaf Philodendron is an excellent choice for cleaning the air along with numerous others", such as Peace lilies, Areca, Reed & Dwarf Date palms, Boston, Australian Sword Ferns, Rubber plants, Weeping Fig, English Evy and Janet Craig Dracaena are other types that are very effective at cleaning the air. One popular old type plant that is also effective is the Snake Plant or Mother-in-Law's tongue (No offense). The shoots can get very long and they are mostly in an upright position, and the shoots are hard like and shaped very similar to a human tongue. Also, many folks many not know of a shorter version of the plant called Father-in-Law's tongue. So, if the Mother-in-Law version is too long then perhaps you would be more pleased with the Father-in-Law variety. These two particuliar types are very easy to care for since not much water is required in the summer and very little, if any, in the winter is needed. Which could prove to be a very good gift to someone that thinks they can't keep a live plant living.
