Mums are one of the top rankers when it comes to purifying the surrounding air and they help to get rid of benzene, formaldehyde, and ammonia. But chrysanthemums are not very popular because they are poisonous to touch and ingest and they also cause complications in people with allergies.

There is always a “but”

Not all plants let us breathe in peace!

Plants can look very appealing and have many benefits but there is always a flip side. It can become very laborious to grow them as they need to be watered fertilized and kept in a place where there is optimum sunlight. Not all plants give off oxygen at night; so, being in the same room as them causes suffocation. Lastly, plants also tend to attract insects sometimes and most people find this aversive. For these reasons, many don’t consider them as a good alternative for interior décor.

Moss emits and absorbs humidity to maintain equilibrium so that the room humidity would be comfortable. Moss art is a growing trend and the masterpieces that are created are sold for large sums to enthusiasts.
