Air Purifying Plant of the Month May

Lush ferns: An ode to nature

Ferns are enchanting. Their lush leaves and striking appearance effortlessly attract attention. From lush forests to modest windowsills, ferns are capturing the hearts of plant lovers all over the world. No wonder they are Air Purifying Plant of the Month for May!

What makes ferns so special? Perhaps their mysterious origins from prehistoric times, long before the first flower appeared. Or their versatility, growing in shady forests and sunlit areas. Sometimes on the ground, sometimes in trees, or on top of rocks.

But ferns are more than beautiful. Some species are particularly strong at purifying the air and improving humidity. You will find these species in the Air So Pure assortment and they have all been tested for their air-purifying ability. Under the Air So Pure label you will find Asplenium, Blechnum Silver Lady, Didymochlaena Truncatula, Dryopteris erythrosora, Nephrolepis, and Phlebodium.

Our members Barreveld, Raadschelders Varens and VDE Plant grow this Air Purifying Plant of the Month for May in different varieties and pot sizes, always in the highest quality.


The Asplenium is also known as the Litter Fern or Sole Fern. It is a genus of ferns where you will find more than 700 different species. These versatile plants can be found all over the world, from tropical rainforests to temperate climates. What's special about the Asplenium is where it grows: not on the ground like the other ferns, but in trees and on top of rocks. With its decorative value and air-purifying power, the Asplenium is a powerful addition to any indoor space.

Blechnum Silver Lady

The Blechnum Silver Lady could also be recognized by its nickname Dwarf Tree Fern. With its elegant leaves, this plant purifies the air. This fern is an expert at removing pollutants such as benzene and toluene, making your living space fresher and healthier.

The Didymochlaena Truncatula, with its lush leaves and striking texture, is not only an eye-catcher but also a powerful air purifier. Nicknamed Mantle Fern, this plant has bronze-colored leaves that turn an increasingly lighter green. This bushy-growing fern is easy to care for. Want to give an original gift?

Dryopteris erythrosora

The Dryopteris erythrosora is also known as the Autumn Fern. This fern is an expert at filtering pollutants so you enjoy a healthier living, working and relaxing environment. This fern gets its nickname from its red-colored leaves and is perfect if you want to combine green houseplants with color! Dryopteris adds a beautiful, natural accent to your interior.


The Nephrolepis, better known as the curly fern, is not only easy to care for, but also produces oxygen while filtering pollutants such as formaldehyde and xylene from the air. With the Nephrolepis in your home, you can enjoy a constant supply of fresh oxygen and improved air quality. This lush fern is very popular and brings nature indoors.


Finally, at Air So Pure you will find the Phlebodium, also known as the Blue Fern. With its soft, blue-green leaves, this fern not only purifies the air of pollutants such as formaldehyde and benzene, but also creates a relaxing atmosphere in any room where it is placed. Phlebodium originated in the tropical regions of South and Central America, where it thrives in moist, shady environments. Our members Raadschelders Ferns and Barreveld grow the Phlebodium in several varieties and pot sizes.

Styling ferns

Would you like to bring nature into your home? Then consider an Air So Pure fern mix. With a combination of our ferns, you'll enjoy healthier air, finer humidity and, of course, coziness in your home! For example, put the lush Phlebodium next to the cute Blechnum Silver Lady.

Taking care of ferns

The Air So Pure ferns require little care, but for optimal longevity (and air-purifying effect) there are some things to keep in mind. Read on to keep your Air Purifying Plant of the Month for as long as possible.

  • Light: The air-purifying ferns in the Air So Pure range like to receive indirect light. So do not put them in direct sunlight, but also not in a too dark place.
  • Water: Our ferns like to receive water once a week. Water through the side of the pot, if you do this in the middle they will eventually lose their leaves and the ferns will get a bare heart.
  • Temperature: Ferns like moderate temperatures. Try to avoid extreme heat or cold. Is it summer and very hot in the house? If so, give the ferns extra water and keep them out of the sun. In winter, make sure they are not too close to the heater, ferns do not like this very much.
  • Pruning: In principle, you do not need to prune the Air So Pure ferns, but this also depends on your personal preference. Do you find certain leaves no longer beautiful, or does it sprout too much? Then cut off the leaves as close to the potting soil as possible.

Are ferns poisonous?

Air So Pure's air-purifying ferns are not poisonous! So you can place them in your home with confidence. Of course, these plants are not meant to be eaten 😉
