Some people choose the gardening as their hobby, where they prefer spending the spare times planting vegetables, fruits or trees at the garden. Honestly, it’s a very good habit, as it might help to reduce our stresses and give off more oxygen to the surrounding areas!
Furthermore, a new study shows that some plants can increase the rate of ozone production by up to 50 times! Some of the plants, such as juniper and pine trees emit some sort of chemical compound, which is known as terpenes. When the terpenes is mixed with nitrogen oxides, they will react to produce ozone. Although ozone is the main substances that forming the ozone layer, but it could be poisonous, if a person inhale too much of ozone into the body, and may cause cancer as well!
By the way, some of the beautiful flower, such as the Desert Rose (Adenium sp.) is a very gorgeous and exquisite houseplant. However, it is a also a very toxic plant, where the Akie tribe in Tanzania use the toxic sap to coat arrow-tips for hunting purpose! Hence, it’s better not to smell the flowers, or it might lead to the happening of brain tumor and other types of cancers.
If you really want to plant something in your backyard garden, bamboo is considering the best plant of all, as it requires low water use and low terpene emissions!
