The Hidden Benefit Of Plants

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 improves the air quality in an average size office. In work settings industry experts often recommend a plant be placed winin each person's breath zone.

Many authorities have conducted their own research programmes. Some of these findings demonstrate that plants:

REDUCE COLDS - Low humidity causes/aggrevates cold sysmptoms. The findings from a number of experiments indicate that the use of indoor plants, particularly green plants with a light water requirement, will naturally raise the humidity and result in corresponding decreases in the incidence of colds and minor ailments.

REDUCE TIREDNESS - The more carbon dioxide is in the air, the more tired and listless we become. Through the process of transpiration, plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and emit water vapour and oxygen.

REDUCE SMELLS - Plants assist in removing toxins from the air. Likewise, other pollutants are absorbed through the plants leaves and removed from the atmosphere.

REDUCE DUST - Dust serves as a medium for micro-organisms in the air leading to health problems. Indoor plants serve as a natural air filter and can reduce the dust by as much as 20%.

REDUCE EYE FATIGUE - Plants reflect the yellow-green spectrum. The human eye identifies these colours as being pleasant and relaxing in office situations. Workers who use computers have noticed significant improvement in their efficiency, concentration, and general well-being with the introduction of plants.

REDUCE STRESS - Environmental psychology studies have shown direct links between environmental factors and stress. All studies indicate that nature is an important contributor to the reduction of stress, and conversely urban environments contribute to psychological stress.

ABSORB NOISE - Plants absorb noise and dampen background sound.
