NASA researchers suggest efficient air cleaning is accomplished with at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space.

Given that people spend more than 90 percent of their time indoors, air quality matters . Furnishings, upholstery, synthetic building materials, and cleaning products in homes and offices can emit a variety of toxic compounds, like formaldehyde.

Adding potted plants to a room has been shown to reduce the amount of air particulates.

Beyond air quality, plants just make people feel better.

For example, hospital patients with plants in their rooms were more positive and had lower blood pressure and stress levels. Similarly, indoor plants may make people smarter by allowing them to stay alert and reducing mental fatigue .


Why our elders say that we should not go near plants/trees at night?

I doubt the authenticity of the above. It is common knowledge that the plants with broader and thicker leaves like Banyan etc release more oxygen. Placing Arica Palm above Ficus varieties seems like propaganda to promote sales of Palms
