Meet the ‘Crazy Plant Lady’ of New York who turned her apartment into an indoor forest

There are many things in our homes that create air pollution – cleaning products, paint, mold and mildew. Plants also replace carbon dioxide with fresh oxygen.

According to a 1989 NASA study, houseplants can help improve air quality by removing cancer-causing chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene from the air. Another study found that the soil in potted plants can also help clean indoor air.

          It's inspiring to see how we can create our own little havens of respite and peace, while also helping to improve our air quality at the same time.

            This is a great idea. she should again consider during the night...since plants produce co² at night that might as well be a hazard.
