Plants for Oxygen Production in the Home

Posted on March 20, 2018 at 8:05 AM

Our homes are our sanctuaries- the place we go for relaxation and wellbeing. So, let's talk about the air quality in homes. Unfortunately the stagnant air in a home is often riddled with pollutants that have no way out. Outside of opening all the windows and letting the breeze run through your home what can you do to create more oxygen in the home? Indoor plants!

Plants absord some of the pollutants found within the home at the same time that they take in CO2. Then through photosynthesis the plants emit O2, helping to purify the stagnant air. The microbes found in the potting soil of the plant are also responsible for purifying the air. Below I will give some examples of the best plants to have in the home and what they are responsible for removing from the air. 

Snake Plant

Produces O2 at night and is best placed in the bedroom.
