In the shop: Spiderplants
I remember spiderplants from childhood with fondness. Native to tropical and southern Africa Spider plants ( Latin name Chlorophytum comosum.) are efficient air cleaners, known to reduce levels of formaldehyde in homes. They are such an easy plant, as long as you have natural light. Shady spots won't do, but given a nice natural light, these pleasant plants will happily send out long tendrils with little baby plants at the ends.
