    We all know that having plants in the house is beneficial, but does anyone know of any specific plants that give off more oxygen than others & as a result better helps those w/ breathing issues?

    TIA!

    I'm not sure about oxygen (if that's your goal, the bigger and leafier the plant the more oxygen it produces) but some plants are better than others with dealing with air pollution and absorbing toxins. I can't provide a scientific source at the moment, but spider plant and Zamioculcas zamiifolia are two easy ones that absorb a lot of possibly toxic compounds. Also, both are super easy to grow!

    Spider plants are great. They start almost immediately to clean toxins in the air.
