Spider Plant

Hello, I've been thinking about getting a plant for my bedroom, but I play loud music(drums) there, and I've seen people on the internet state that some plants react negatively to sound pollution. also, the plant I'm thinking of getting is a peace lily.
Do you think I should get it, if not then can you think of any substitute plants to get?(I'm looking for a plant that purifies air)
thank you
-Teddy

Peace lilies are a good option for indoor air purification. They don't need a lot of light, yet still thrive. The only problem I can foresee is that they get pretty big, and can take up a lot of room.

Other options of plants for purifying the air is Chorophytum, or Spider Plant. These look like variegated grass and thrive in hanging baskets so they don't clutter up any surfaces, don't need lots of light or water, and make more of themselves with long hanging tendrils with baby plants on the ends.

Either way, I don't know if drumming will bother them - you'll have to be the judge of that aspect of it. Luckily, both of these plants, among others, are easy to source and grow, so not terribly expensive if it turns out they hate the vibration. Personally, I would be very interested in your findings!

Thank you, Jacki

Thanks for the advice, Jacki. I'll look into growing spider plants then since I have a small room
