There are many indoor plants that are good for you and good for the environment, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Florida.
It found that the majority of indoor plants, including the ones that are native to the U.S., have the potential to thrive in areas with poor air quality, such as the Southeast.
“Our study found that indoor plants have a good chance of surviving conditions that cause indoor plants to grow at a lower rate, with fewer plants and fewer flowers, according,” said study lead author Jessica K. Johnson, a University of Floridians doctoral student.
“If we look at how these plants are being used, they have a lot of potential to have a positive impact on our environment.”
The study was published in the journal Environmental Research Letters.
“We looked at indoor plants with different characteristics to see if we could figure out whether they had the ability to grow,” Johnson said.
Johnson and her colleagues looked at plants from more than 50 countries.
They identified eight indoor plants and seven non-intact species.
The researchers compared these plants to plants that had been grown from seeds from two types of indoor species, which were different.
The non-indigenous plants were planted in different locations in Florida.
The plants from indigenous species were planted at the same locations, and the researchers collected plants from each species.
Plants from indigenous plants were grown from seedlings that were seeded from seed from plants from non-native species.
“The results showed that native plants have good indoor conditions that could sustain indoor plants for many years to come,” Johnson told CBS News.
That’s a really good combination.” “
These native plants, which have a very good ability to withstand some of the effects of indoor air pollution, have the capacity to sustain their indoor environment for a long time.
That’s a really good combination.”
Johnson said it’s important to understand the factors that determine indoor plants’ survival and viability.
“I would say, ‘Hey, that’s really interesting,’ but I don’t know if that’s the best way to look at this.
It might be better to say, here’s the plants that do have good health and do have longevity,” she said.
The research team also studied plants grown from nonnative plants.
“In some cases, these plants had the potential of being very successful in some of these conditions, but were not successful in all of these,” Johnson explained.
For example, the plant from nonindigenous species that grew well in South Florida had a lower resistance to disease, and it had a higher resistance to pests than plants from native species.
Johnson said the research team hopes to further understand the role of different types of plants in indoor plants.
The study is ongoing.
