According to former NASA research scientist Bill Wolverton, there are many plants that can reduce the levels of many pollutants, including formaldehyde. As Dr. Wolverton states, “About 15 to 20 plants should completely remove formaldehyde from an 1,800 square foot house.” While plants have the ability to remove several different kinds of pollutants, these plants in particular are known for their ability to remove formaldehyde:

Boston fern, English Ivy, spider plant, peace lily, bamboo palm, many varieties of philodendron, rubber plant, weeping fig, and the variegated snake plant a/k/a mother-in-law’s tongue.
