NASA PROVES THAT PLANTS ARE NATURAL AIR PURIFIERS!

bromeliads2018

Indoor plants do much more than decorate our homes or offices. Indoor plants, along with their associated, micro flora, reduce levels of noxious gases from indoor air including formaldehyde, benzene, ozone, carbon monoxide, trichloroethylene, and xylene.

NASA was interested in researching ways to clean air in space stations. So, they realized that not only are plants great at absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen, as all plants do, but plants also eliminate significant amounts of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene.

nasa-1Studies by Dr. Bill Wolverton at NASA’s Space Center proved that plants are highly effective, non-energy using air purifiers. According to studies, plants were found to stabilize relative humidity in the office and home, reduce the incidences of flu, improve human comfort and actually improve worker productivity in work places. Newest results from the research proved that the accumulation of dust in interiors can be reduced by as much as 20% by adding foliage plants.

Two or three plants in 8-inch to 10- inch pots for every 100 sq. ft. will help clean that zone’s breathing air. If you double it, that zone will become healthier in about a week. Many businesses in the U.S. and internationally are beginning to utilize plants for their air cleaning abilities.

At This Time of Year…

… We, in the nursery industry, have the opportunity to take in some courses that give us continuing education credits towards our particular licensing requirements. We are fortunate that we do not have to travel far to attend some excellent workshops on selecting the right plant for the right place. The Think Trees Conference brings in experts from across the country to instruct us on how to prune trees correctly, how to identify diseases or identify insects affecting our plants.

While I am away, my crew is busy planting this year’s crop of hydrangeas. We hope to have these in bloom in time for Easter along with our lilies. As always, we will have blue hydrangeas, two varieties of pink and a white. I am often asked by our customers, whether hydrangeas are hardy in Santa Fe.

My answer is ‘yes’ but the hydrangea prefers soil rich in organic matter and a soil that drains well. They prefer to have morning sun and afternoon shade. Our summers may be too hot and dry for them to do well. Many of our customers buy the plants to enjoy at Easter, grow them on through summer in a pot where they can control the soil, sun, and fertilizer. They then find a spot in their yard and hope for the best.

HAPPY GARDENING!

So fertilizing your plants is a great thing to do right now. Lynn also said that January is the perfect time to get NEW houseplants to brighten up each room. And most importantly houseplants are GOOD for you! Listen to Lynn’s tip on why houseplants are so beneficial at this time of year!
