New Delhi News, 01 Dec 2019 : Air pollution is looming in the north and the region which is most affected is Delhi-NCR. It is a new killer issue that is fast spreading in the region and as per the reports Delhi residents are breathing about 25 times more toxic air. And as the air-quality is expected to get worsen in winters, Nurserylive brings a new range of plants on National Pollution Control Day for the people of Delhi-NCR residents to protect them from air pollution. The best possible way to ensure a better indoor air quality is by adopting the plant range like Areca Palm, Money Plant, Peace Lily, & Sanseveria, which purify air and keep indoor air quality healthy to breathe.
Dr Akshay Joshi, plant expert from Nurserylive said “To fight with pollution problem, we have come with a complete new range of indoor plants for Delhi residents. These plants are easy to care and can be placed inside homes & offices to enhance beauty of the area. All indoors plants (flowering or not) are able to purify indoor air to some degree through their normal photosynthesis processes. But some were found to be more beneficial than others in removing harmful household toxins, even removing 90% of chemicals in the air in only twenty-four hours”.
While we all know that it’s not always possible to do the plantation on a large scale but we can always start at our home. Plants improve air quality index through several mechanisms, they absorb carbon dioxide and releases oxygen through photosynthesis. They increase humidity by transferring water vapors through leaves pour and they can possibly absorb pollutants on the external surface of the leaves and on the plant to root soil.
A study by NASA suggests that having at least two plants (in 10- to 12-inch pots) per 100 square feet of space would contribute to the best results. Plant-filled homes contain up to 60% less mold, mildew, and bacteria than homes without plants. Lucky for us, nature has a way of keeping itself clean. There are many powerful air-cleaning plants that naturally remove pollutants from the air. A few range of plant that we can adopt to purify indoor air are like Areca Palms, Money Plant, Peace Lily, Sanseveria (Snake Plant or Mother- in law Tongue), Syngoniums, and Spider Plant. You can easily buy these plants online from convenience of your home from Nurserylive.com or Amazon.in. These plants are also available at your nearby offline nurseries.
