One may ask, how would a plant help my health? Well, the following plants are scientifically
proven to be the best oxygen-producing plants which can aid your mental health, immunity
along with energy levels. An important note is that no plant produces oxygen constantly. When they are exposed to light, they are able to photosensitise thus producing oxygen. It depends on the plant but some produce more oxygen in the evening whilst others do during the day, this is due to the rate at which the plants photosensitise.
Pothos can be considered the top indoor producing oxygen plant because of its quick conversion from carbon dioxide to oxygen rate. It absorbs the exhaust fumes in the air thus purifying the air whilst also replacing CO2 with oxygen. If you have a spot which has direct sunlight in your house, pothos would surely enjoy it there, whilst also being kept cool.
The peace lily is a floral plant, where the flowers produce oxygen during the night time. It removes dangerous chemicals which can be found in the air we breathe. For it to work more efficiently it should be placed either in hallways or highly humid rooms. No need to fuss too much for the lighting, the peace lily is happy with moderate lighting.
The snake plant can also be referred to as the mother-in-law’s tongue plant. There is a slight difference between the two which is, snake plants have green leaves whilst mother-in-law’s tongue has yellow stripes amongst the green. It works very well in closed rooms as it produces a very high amount of oxygen for an
indoor plant whilst also removing harmful chemicals from the air.
Thanks to its high oxygen production along with air cleansing it helps children during their development as they remove dangerous toxins from the air, reducing the common respiratory
illnesses. It is suggested that various areca palms are placed around the house for maximum oxygen levels in the house.
The weeping fig is a Ficus plant which increases oxygen levels by a great amount and thus lowering a great amount of carbon dioxide in the air. Like the peace lily, it filters the air from dangerous chemicals found around us. It can be a sensitive plant which should not be moved around often.
