Over in TED Talks (TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design), a lineup of incredible lectures, listen to researcher Kamal Meattle discuss how to grow your own fresh air. He explains how three common houseplants (Areca Palm, Mother-in-Law's Tongue, and Money Plant) can be used in our homes and offices to measurably increase cleaner indoor air.

So glad I bought a Mother-in Law's Tongue plant just the other day. They're great looking plants and convert CO2 to oxygen at night. Sounds like I need several more around here to do a thorough air cleaning though...

Fascinating!
