Ok honestly when was the last time you sincerely thanked your interior plants for all the hard work they are performing on your behalf 24 hours a day. Never? Well here is a good reason to think again before dismissing the thought that others will think you are crazy for talking to your plants.
Are you aware the interior air you are breathing daily is 2-5 times more polluted than the air you are breathing outside? The statistic comes from the Environmental Protection Agency. Since the majority of us spend more time inside than outside that is not doing your body any good.
Indoor-air-pollutants come in two primary forms: particle pollution, such as dust, pollen, animal dander and smoke, and gaseous pollutants such as VOCs ( Volatile Organic Compounds ) that are emitted from sources such as building materials, dry-cleaned clothing and aerosol sprays. You are constantly breathing in common toxins.
Houseplants, especially a beautiful potted Kentia Palm, clean the air, researchers say, primarily by absorbing pollution through small leaf pores called stomata, and via microorganisms living in potting soil or medium that metabolize contaminants. Scientists believe plants can begin removing pollution the moment they are placed in a room and can be particularly useful in spaces where there is little ventilation.
So if you don’t have an indoor plant or a potted Kentia Palm go get one. Give them some water regularly, a nice little shower occasionally to dust them off, and maybe some granule fertilizer too, and more importantly keep interacting with them.
