6. Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum Morifolium)

Chrysanthemums bloom for six to eight weeks, and for this reason they are better suited to life in a pot. This plant loves bright light, so to encourage buds to open you will need to find a spot near a window with direct sunlight. Once in bloom the flowers are very colorful and will brighten up your home and filter toxins. Benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, xylene, toluene, and ammonia are some of the toxins these amazing buds can filter.
