I have Devil’s Ivy for years. It is one of those plants that keep on growing no matter what. It is so resilient that I have it for almost 18 years and it still grows. It uses very little water and it always green.
For a house plant to live so long it is quite an achievement for me. But what is more amazing, is the fact that it is one of the best house plants that efficient at removing indoor pollutants such as formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene.
A study conducted by NASA to examine natural ways to clear the air in space stations from toxins, discovered that some house plants and potted flowers are very useful at filtering the air. One of these plants is Devil’s Ivy.
Another amazing fact about this plant is that in tropical environment it can grow to be HUGE: (See my hand compared to the leaf?)
