Benefits of Plants

Do plants in offices have any advantages to health?  There is a series of studies, which prove the psychological and physiological improvement of the employees, which can be directly traced back to the presence of plants.  A recent study carried out and presented at the “Indoor Air Conference 99”, proved that indoor plants positively affect the health and comfort of the office employees.  The advantages for health can result from a combination of:  1. the increase of general well being due to the presence of plants.  2. the creation of a nature like environment.  3. the effect of care shown by the employer towards his employees.  4. the improvement of air quality and humidity through plants. Indoor plants help to improve the quality of life indoors in many different ways, what are they?
