When you visit your local flower shop, what are you usually shopping for? Are you looking for fresh flowers to send your sentiments? Do you need special items to give as a gift? Are you in need of a wedding florist or flowers for some other special occasion? While all of these are common reasons to visit a florist, there is one possibility that many people simply don’t think about: air purification.
It is highly likely that your local florist keeps a variety of potted plants in stock. While all plants help to cleanse the air to some degree, some varieties are more efficient than others. Some of the best potted plants for improving the air quality in your home or office include:
Snake Plant. You might be surprised at just how many household items off-gas formaldehyde. Paper products, personal care items, and cleaning supplies can all dump this hazardous toxin into your air. Snake plants, which are also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, are exceptionally talented in cleansing the air or formaldehyde. It thrives in minimal light and high humidity, and it is relatively easy to care for.
Dracaena Marginata. Dracaena comes in several varieties and is excellent for filtering trichloroethylene, xylene, and formaldehyde from your air. The dracaena marginata, also called the red-edged dracaena, can make for an impressive room accent, owing to its ability to grow up to 15 feet tall! This plant is perfectly happy living at room temperature on relatively little water.
Peace Lily. Nearly everyone is familiar with the peace lily and its lovely white blooms, but few are aware that it is a workhorse when it comes to air purification. This plant is nearly impossible to kill, and removes more toxins than any other green plant that has been studied.
Come visit Ariston Florist in New York City if you would like to add some natural air purifiers to your home or office. Call (888) 435-8909 or drop by our website for more information about our plants.

Going to see your wedding florist to discuss your flowers can be one of the most exciting parts of planning your nuptials. It can also be incredibly stressful if you are unsure which flowers are best suited for your wedding. Fortunately, your wedding florist knows this and will be more than happy to help you select beautiful floral arrangements that will respond well to the local temperature. If you are having a summer wedding, here are a few tips for choosing your flowers.
Don’t be Afraid to Go Bold. Summer weddings don’t have to be stark white or blandly pastel. This is a vibrant time of year, and an exciting time of your life. What better way to celebrate both than by opting for bright, brilliant colors such as hot pink, electric orange, neon green, or even deep reds and purples? Gerbera daisies offer some of the richest, boldest colors you will find in nature and make beautiful focal points in wedding arrangements.
Consider the Delicacy of the Flower. If you’re getting married in the heat of the summer, especially outdoors, you’ll want to use hardy, heat-resilient flowers. Cut roses and tulips, while beautiful, do not last for very long in heat. Any tropical flower will perform well, since heat is their natural preference. Daisies are relatively resilient, as are waxy flowers and orchids. Ask your wedding florist for his or her expertise in this area.
Remember Your Centerpieces and Accent Arrangements. Every wedding is made more beautiful by flowers, but you do want to be sure that your floral arrangements complement the overall tone of your ceremony. You wouldn’t want overly elegant budvases at a casual reception any more than you would want an overly simplistic design at a ballroom reception.
