Ted Talks: How to grow your own fresh air

8 05 2009

Recently on Ted Talks there has come an interesting story told by a man named Kamal Meattle on how we can use natural plants like Areca Palm, Mother in law’s tongue and Money plant to improve the health conditions in an enclosed space.

Apparently all one would need to have would be 4 Areca Palm‘s per person to replace CO2 with Oxygen, 6 to 8 Mother in law’s tongues per person in the bedroom (thus converting carbon dioxide to oxygen during night), and a few Money plants to help remove volatile chemicals from the air, to live in a closed environment and never need any outside air.
