Plants help clean the air indoors


Another study that examines and confirms the positive effect of having plants indoors, whether it’s at the office or at home. Scientists at NASA have finalised a study that has been going on for two years in which they have studied the effect of several common indoor plants and their effect on reducing indoor air pollution. It has been found that living plants are so efficient at absorbing contaminants in the air that some of these plants will actually be launched into space to be part of biological life support systems aboard orbiting space stations in the future. Dr. Bill Wolverton, a scientist working on the project, said he hopes future results will show even more reasons to use plants for cleaning indoor air in homes and offices, creating a much healthier living and working environment.

Several plants were tested in a variety of conditions. For example, gerbera daisies and chrysanthemums were very good at eliminating benzene vapors from the environment, while other plants, like Dracaena Massangeana and Spathiphyllum, did just as well. Read into more detail about this study and the results here.
