Plant Power! Indoor Air Purification with Plants
We haven’t come across a single individual who desires to breathe in an environment that is chock-full of toxic pollutants. And we are sure, you don’t either! However, we must be thankful for nature in gifting us a variety of indoor plants that not only animate and vivify your house and make it more welcoming, but simultaneously, purify the air around you!
What a win-win? Isn’t it?
Of course, it is! Duh-uh!
Now you must be wondering, how on earth this is possible and must be trying to configure the real picture behind it. Perhaps, let us break it to you, the wholesome process of air sanitization is called phytoremediation (that’s quite a word though!)
So, what is phytoremediation?
Phytoremediation occurs only in quite a few plants called “hyper-accumulators”, they grip quite a good degree of pollutants without being poisoned on their own by stabilizing the soil and this is a piece of great news for those who wish to mount plants inside or breathe some fresh air! Hyper-accumulators gulp all the toxins in water or air that mostly include dense metals, radioactive contaminates or petroleum yields, and this mighty process what is called “phytoremediation”. As you are now enlightened about phytoremediation, you must learn that this process occurs on both, leaves and in the roots of a plant, which makes the scrubbing of polluted air slightly quicker. The tissues that are present in these plants degrade the size of the toxins, and metals that are cultivated through composting or incineration.
Cheers to that mishmash of microbes, soil, and roots, which leads to the reduction of air pollution from your beautiful space!
