Interior Plants Have Many Benefits
Concerns over our ecological footprint and green building practices are moving more mainstream and with indoor plants being able to naturally filter air impurities, it makes them perfect for creating healthy interior spaces. There’s no better time than now to breathe in nature and think green.
D r. Oz is known as America’s Doctor, is a co-author of “You, The Owners Manual” and appears regularly on Oprah. During an appearance in November 2007, he recommended the use of interior plants – specifically philodendrons, golden pothos and spider plants – as ideal plants known for their toxin-filtering abilities.
Not only do plants add to the aesthetic appearance of a room or area, recent research shows that just three average floor-standing plants or six standard table-top plants significantly improve the air quality in an average-size office. In work settings industry experts often recommend a plant be placed within each person’s breathing zone.
Dr Wolverton, a retired NASA scientist and author of “How to Grow Fresh Air” published a study 25 years ago putting houseplants on the map as air purifiers. In November 2002, Dr Wolveton confirmed the results of further researchers and added “there is now sufficient evidence to support the concept of using interior plants to provide good Interior Air Quality (IAQ).”
What Professionals Are Saying

“Adding plants to an interior setting is a natural way to provide a relaxed setting for our hotel guests while creating a healthy environment.”
