Plants have a beneficial impact on the air indoors. They improve the air by purifying it from the mold and toxins.
If you want a better environment and more oxygen inside your living space, then you should place an aloe plant inside.
It is a magnificent plant that you must grow in your home. It also cleans the spirit and body.
Aloe plant is also called an ‘oxygen bomb’ due to its ability to clean the air form formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide and releases oxygen. The effect of aloe plant can be compared to nine air purifiers.
Besides aloe plant you can also plant a weeping fig. The weeping fig is a simple plant to grow and it does not require a lot of sunlight and it absorbs the formaldehyde. But the bad news is that the leaves of the weeping fig are poisonous, and it is not a good idea to be kept in places where children and pets are present.
Another plant that you need to have is the ivy plant. It is known that this plant is poisonous, but it absorbs about 60% of air toxins and also in just six hours it absorbs 58% of particles of feaces.
Spider plant can perform synthesis without needing a lot of sunlight. It also has the ability to clean the air from toxins such as gasoline, carbon monoxide, styrene and formaldehyde. Spider plant can even clean 200 square meter of air.
Another plant which is perfect for the living area is the estragon. It just needs minimum light for photosynthesis and it is very tough and does not need much care to grow. During the night estrogen releases oxygen and cleans toxins, so it is the perfect plant for the bedroom.
Also you should take lilies because they are very good in absorbing chemical toxins from air. They can also absorb trichloroethylene and formaldehyde.
Nasa has stated that everyone needs to have from 15 to 18 plants from the list above in 500 square meter’s area. They should be placed also in the room where we sleep.
