Which is the best plant to grow indoors for bloggers and smokers? If you work long hours indoors then you’ll need to grow a few indoors. The only problem is, which are the best indoor plants for air purification? Being a fan of the TED Talk show, I stumbled upon this video by chance. In this episode, researcher Kamal Meattle talks about the must-have indoor plants.
Researcher Kamal Meattle shows how an arrangement of three common houseplants, used in specific spots in a home or office building, can result in measurably cleaner indoor air. It has been proven that we tend to work better if the oxygen level is right, a small effort might produce a huge result.
Some people fear responsibility, fear of cleaning, watering and basic gardening. Put it that way, do this basic gardening when you are stressed out, it takes only 10 minutes. The three low lighting indoor plants are good for:
- Cats or Dogs owner
- Parents with baby or babies
- Room with not much air circulation
↓ 01 – Areca Palm (Dypsis lutescens)
Scientific name as Dypsis lutescens, also known as bamboo palm, golden cane palm, areca palm, or butterfly palm, is a species of flowering plant in the Arecaceae family, native to Madagascar.
This plant effectively converts Carbon dioxide into Oxygen, good during night time. You will need 3 plants for each adult in a room.
↓ 02 – Money Plant (Epipremnum aureum)
Epipremnum aureum is a species of flowering plant in the family Araceae, with a broad native Old World distribution. Native range extends from Northern Australia through Malaysia and Indochina into China, Japan and India.
It is good at eliminating formaldehyde from cigarettes. Must have plants for smokers. Depending on your smoking habit, the more you smoke, the more plants it requires.
↓ 03 – Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)
Sansevieria trifasciata, also called snake plant or mother-in-law’s tongue, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to tropical West Africa from Nigeria east to the Congo.
Unlike other plants, snake plants convert CO2 into Oxygen at night, this is good if it is kept inside the bedroom. You’ll need 6 adult waist height plant for each person in a room for maximum effectiveness.
With its air-filtering plants and sustainable architecture, Kamal Meattle’s office park in New Delhi is a model of green business. Meattle himself is a longtime activist for cleaning up India’s air.
