Plants That Purify: Bamboo Palm

We all could benefit from a cheap and beautiful way to improve a home's indoor air quality. That's why I'm bringing you an ongoing series on house plants that are particularly good at purifying the air.

Next up in our series is the bamboo palm.


To find out more about this hardy house plant, just

.


Bamboo palm, which is also known as reed palm, is a low-maintenance houseplant that prefers rainwater or distilled water to tap water. This plant is susceptible to spider mites and mealy bugs, so be careful to avoid insect infestations. Place your bamboo palm in indirect sunlight and allow the plant to stay moist, but not wet. If any water accumulates in the bottom of the planter, dump it out, as bamboo plants hate to sit in water.

I want some of these in my new place!Aimeeb: my dogs eat the bamboo at my mom's house all the time and LOVE it. It never makes them sick and the vet told me it was fine for them, because it is basically just like grass. Hope that helps. :)
