Are you undecided about the next plant to buy for your apartment or office? One of the best green choices you can undertake are the "Healthy Plant", which are the air purifying plant. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, these plant species are considered - as a result of numerous studies carried out from the 80's to the present - as the best purifiers of the spaces around us. There are many harmful substances that undermine our health; the most dangerous are Xylene, Formaldehyde, Benzene, Trichloroethylene and Ammonia.
They often come from sources we underestimate: heating, air conditioning, sprays, paints, as well as construction materials and buildings, in addition to cigarette smoke, fireplaces, and fireplaces.
Healthy plants can come to your aid to eliminate these toxic components, as well as to eliminate any moisture present in the environments where we live. To do so, allergists recommend placing at least one every 9 sqm.
Almost all plants prefer warm temperatures and frequent nebulizers to maintain the right humidity: many are actually native to tropical habitats.
Among these we include:
Sansevierie: in addition to being particularly elegant and giving a touch of elegance, they filter the formaldehyde present in cleaning products, in personal care or even in toilet paper.
Aloe: belongs to the succulent family, and it also absorbs formaldehyde, as well as benzene (often derived from cigarette smoke). A great location for Aloe is a bright place; it does not need frequent watering and it also has high humidity rates. It can then be placed in the kitchen to absorb the harmful fumes that emit during cooking.
Phylodendrum: absorbs electromagnetic waves and harmful substances that emanate from building materials and furnishings. Beware though: it can be toxic to children and animals.
Beaucarnea Nolina, known also as “Smoke-eater” as it is able to filter cigarette smoke and other toxic gases that emit if an environment is poorly ventilated.
Ferns, in particular Nephrolepis and Asplenium, capture solvents and paint vapors: they occupy little space and often have a remarkable scenic effect.
The Tradescantia, distinguished by its two-colored leaves, and besides filtering pollutants, gives a touch of style to your home.
In addition to these, among the Healthy plants we also find plants often known only for gastronomic purposes such as Arabica Coffee or Oriental Banana, and other decorative plants such as Peperomia, Syngonium, Phlebodium, Guzmania Soledo and Alocasia.
Effective, natural and low cost solutions to preserve our health and places where we do our daily activities: a green mood we should all safeguard!
