Easy Breathing

The body acquires oxygen in and liberates carbon dioxide when we breathe. Plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen during the process of photosynthesis. Making plants and people natural partners for this opposite pattern of gas use. There is an increase in oxygen levels by adding plants to interior spaces. Photosynthesis halts at night, and like humans, plants normally respire absorbing oxygen and carbon dioxide is released. Orchids, succulents and epiphytic bromeliads to name a few plants do just the opposite,  releasing oxygen and taking in carbon dioxide. During the night, best place these plants in bedrooms to refresh the air.

Freeing Water

Plants release moisture vapor, which rises humidity of the air around them as part of the photosynthetic and respiratory processes. 97% of the water plants take in is the percentage they release. You can increase the humidity of a room, which helps keeps respiratory troubles at bay by placing several plants together.  

Air Purifier

Plants naturally remove toxins from the air. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) include materials like formaldehyde present in rugs, vinyl, cigarette smoke, and grocery bags, benzene and trichloroethylene found in both man-made fibers, inks, solvents, and paint.
