Bill Woverton, a NASA scientist working on purifying the air inside space stations found that plants emit a water vapor that creates a pumping action which pulls contaminated air to the plants roots and converts it to food!
Wolverton published his work in a consumer friendly book How to Grow Fresh Air: 50 Houseplants That Purify Your Home or Office
Boston ferns, pot mums & lady palms are great at breaking down chemicals like ammonia and formaldehyde found in the air in your home. Add some greenery to your scenery and increase your health!
**NASA recommends a minimum of two plants per 100 square feet of floor space in a building with 8- to 10-foot ceilings. See the full list of beneficial plants and flowers here list here.
