NASA uses the butterfly palm, rubber plant, philodendron, ficus, boston fern and peace lily. My favorites are also mother in law's tongue and spider plant (both icky names for pretty plants.) :)

Personality, I use the Golden Pothos because the plant tackles formaldehyde and targets carbon monoxide and benzene. Hope this helps!
