Using plants to basically detoxify the air and it seemed like a pretty good idea, but I wanted to shoot it past you. Like this guy worked with astronauts and setting up places in outer space, so they like recirculate the air.

[Aajonus]

That's why we have forests, cause the plants eat the carbon dioxide and their exhalation, their toxin is oxygen. For us, it's just the reverse, so that's the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals. So, yes, and there are six plants which produce the most oxygen and I have a list of them at home, but all the dracaenas, especially the corn dracaena is one.

And there are quite a few other, there are five all together that are indoor plants that can be used to help your house be richer and cleaner.

[Fred]

And he listed plants in some sort of order too, but like chloroform and synthetic chemicals, he said they would actually absorb those.

[Aajonus]

Yes, they will, along with the carbon. They have no choice, binds with the carbon dioxide. They don't have a choice. Doesn't mean they prefer it, but they absorb it. Absolutely.

[Fred]

So, I was thinking since I live in LA, close to downtown. If I had like plants plus an air filter, a HEPA filter to like take the particles out, that would do?

[Aajonus]

That's a good thing. When I was living in the city, I had plants all over my house. It took me a good five hours a week to water all my plants, but I had good air in my apartment.

[Fred]

So, it would be a decent air, not just better?

[Aajonus]

Oh, very good air, cuz it really is letting off oxygen if you get the right plants.

[Attendee]

How many plants do you need?

[Aajonus]

Well, it's theoretical, there's no actual test to prove it. Depending upon the plant and the size, I used usually five plants per room, and let's say the room was as big as this area twice, but not a high ceiling like this, that would be five plants. Some of them were big, bigger than that and they worked very, very well. Five a room was fine, but sometimes I'd had many more than that cause I like plants.

[Attendee]

And you don't open the windows?

[Aajonus]

You don't have to open the windows if you do that, except to let them have some good lights sometimes.
