SEOUL, Mar. 27 (Korea Bizwire) — A recent study has showed that growing plants indoors can help improve air quality.
The Rural Development Administration (RDA) revealed the results of the study on Tuesday, following a variety of experiments conducted on indoor plants over the last four years.
“We used a special device that visualizes fine dust to be seen by the naked eye, and saw in our experiment that rooms with plants had significantly lower concentrations of fine dust,” said the RDA.
Money trees, spearflowers, sago palms, staghorn ferns, and gold crests were particularly effective against fine dust, the study showed.
“Placing three to five plants in a 20㎡ room can reduce 20 percent of fine dust levels in four hours,” said the RDA.
The RDA recently introduced the Bio Wall, a vertical garden system with air purifying features, that effectively reduces fine dust by 232㎍/㎥ per hour.
