Dracaena marginata is a popular indoor plant with long, slender green leaves edged with red. These plants are great for beginners because they're drought tolerant and not at all fussy about their light conditions.

This plant is useful for removing xylene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde, which spreads in indoor air through lacquers like your hairspray or furniture polish or furniture varnish. Especially good at removing formaldehyde, one of the most common toxins found in our indoor air.
