    Wait, Plants Don’t Purify The Air?

    Plants Don't Purify The Air

    It has never been more popular to have houseplants, which is why uncovering one of the biggest myths about plants comes as a shock. Recent research shows that plants don’t purify the air.

    What The Research Shows

    The study released late in 2019 found that while plants can remove VOCs from the air, that the amount required would be unrealistic for the average room. This is in addition to the fact that you must understand proper watering for each plant or you increase the risk of root rot and mold which will add toxins to the indoor air.

    Keep Your Plants

    While the air purification properties have been heartbreakingly debunked, you should still keep your plants. Not only are plants beautiful, but adding any natural elements to your home can make your home feel warm and welcome. Nature has a variety of mental and physical health benefits, so the more plants the merrier. In addition to plants consider natural elements such as an indoor water feature, wood, sand, seashells, dried or fresh flowers, metal, and more.

    Not to worry as there are a variety of things you can do to improve indoor air quality. Open the windows at least once a week to let fresh air in, replace air filters at least every 3 months, minimize products with synthetic fragrances, dust and clean regularly, and more!
