HOW POTTED PLANTS PERK YOU UP
A life surrounded by plants is not simply aesthetically pleasing, it can improve your health. Plants act as a kind of pollutant sponge, absorbing carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released from manmade products such as paint and technology which can cause headaches and dizziness. Some plants, eg orchids, aloe, peace lilies, also release oxygen at night and so improve the quality of air while we sleep. And, finally, plants including ivies, rubber plants and Boston ferns transpire water vapour, making them natural room humidifiers, which can reduce the amount of dust in a room.
