But it turns out that we underestimate the role of indoor plants in purifying the air. Research conducted by NASA has found that certain plants not only moisten the air, but also effectively remove benzene, formaldehyde, trichlorethylene, xylene, and ammonia! Despite the fact that Dr. Bill Wolverton led the study in 1989, today his results are the most accurate and complete.
These plants are true champions for removing a variety of toxins from the air.
Thus, during the investigations it was found that the best indoor plants for air purification are the chrysanthemum and the flower of the dead. It should be noted that the efficiency of plants in removing pollutants from the air increases if a little activated carbon is added to the soil.
NASA also recommends having at least one plant for every 10 square meters. So surround yourself with flowers, since in addition, all green plants have a positive impact on our nervous system!
