According to the “Interia” portal, many of us grow plants at home. We choose them for various reasons, for ornamentation, sentiment, and also because of their properties. If you care about air-polluting plants, it is worth reaching for specific species. What? Find the answer below!
Good for smog
Along with the heating season, there is a serious problem – smog. Unfortunately, for years many Polish towns have occupied the leading places in the infamous ranks of the most polluted cities not only in Europe, but also in the world.
For years, doctors have been alarming that smog is extremely harmful to our health. It adversely affects not only the quality of our life, but also its length. The data show that about 45,000 die every year due to smog. os & oacute; b.
And although there is no doubt that the problem must be solved at the national and global level, in our homes we can rely on plants that will allow us to enjoy cleaner air. Which will work best?
One of the plants that can remove toxins from the air is Zamiokulkas. It removes formaldehyde from the air. Its advantage is that it is not particularly complicated to grow. Even if we forget to water it, we will certainly not harm it. Zamiokulkas, like a succulent, has the ability to accumulate water, e.g. in the leaves.
Zamiokulkas likes shade or shade. It should not be placed where it will be exposed to drafts. It does not handle spillage and low temperatures well.
< p> Peace Lily
Peace Lily is another plant with an anti-smog effect. It cleans the air of: ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, toluene, and also trichlorethylene. It is worth noting that no other plant cleans the air of so many harmful substances.
Unfortunately, over time, the winged flower loses its ability to purify the air. Scientists indicate that this happens only after 2-3 years. After this time, the flower can only be used for decoration.
< p> Marginated dracaena
Marginated dracaena has the ability to purify the air from 5 substances harmful to our health. We are talking about: benzene, formaldehydes, xylene, toluene and trichloroethene. All you need to do is provide a moderately sunny spot, ideally a position near a window.
They like humid rooms. Moisture should also be kept in the pot into which the dracaena is placed.
