I think the role of domestic plants is simply to illuminate living spaces and look good on shelves? Think again. Many ordinary domestic plants, such as ferns, palms and ZZ plants, can actually reduce the infectivity of viruses in the air by increasing the room humidity level. Yes, you have heard this right. One of the secret weapons to repel or deal with a cold or a flu can be not only in your doctor's office but also in the window sill. According to the study, when the humidity reaches 40%, it is able to significantly reduce the virulence and infectivity of the influenza virus. Higher humidity also means lower infectivity of viruses in the air. Plants come here: All plants, except succulents and cacti, have the ability to raise the level of humidity by a process known as transpiration.
"Transpiration occurs when direct sunlight strikes the leaves and pulls water out of the air," explains Christopher Sach, head of plant science and education at Sill. "The plant, in turn, draws water from the soil to replace the water that has evaporated in the air. The larger the plant, the more the transpiration gets and the more water that moves in the air, and more plants and larger plants increase humidity the most. "
So do not be afraid to admire plants this year ̵
