How does it work?

Air-purifying houseplants absorb through their leaves pollutants such as formaldehyde and benzene from the air. These substances are stored and broken down by the plant and its roots. The resulting CO2 is converted into oxygen and released into the air as water vapour, which in turn improves the air humidity. Win-win, we would say. A study at the University of Wageningen (NL) is currently investigating the effect of green plants at the workplace. It is being tested to what extent the use of air-purifying plants has a positive effect on stress reduction, the ability to concentrate and the quality of work.

Mix & Match

And the best thing about it is that we don’t even have to decide on our favourite one. The Urban Jungle theme really comes alive when different varieties in various pot sizes and plant heights are mixed and matched. On top of it all indoor plant pots can be combined: Ceramics, baskets, bamboo, everything is allowed. All plant pots shown in the photos are from our supplier HBX Deco Natural Living and are available in our webshop.
