Decorating your interior with plants, you will not only add a bit of greenery but also bring into your home the living organism, which will influence your own, will affect the course of your thoughts, your house and improve the quality of life.
First, you will breathe easier. During photosynthesis, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Thus humans and plants are naturally innate partners. Adding a plant to your space, you thereby will increase the level of oxygen in your house.
Second, plants are natural humidifiers of the air. As a part of the process of photosynthesis and respiration, plants emit moisture in the air, thereby increasing the humidity around them. Plants evaporate about 97 % of the water they drink.
Third, plants will purify the air in your home. According to NASA every 24 hours plants remove to 87 % of toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air.
Fourth, plants improve health. Kansas State University conducted an investigation, which empirically proved that when in hospital rooms plants were added, the rate of recovery of patients markedly increased. The experiment also found that plants reduce the negative factors as fatigue, catarrhal conditions, headache, cough, sore throat, and flu-like symptoms among office workers.
Fifth, free plants help to concentrate. Scientists from the Royal College of Agriculture in Circencester, England, also conducted an interesting study. This study showed that if placed plants in classrooms, the level of student concentration on education increases by 70%! Besides attention, which is so essential in the learning process, also further increases the attendance of lectures. And it’s all thanks to potted plants!
