All : All plants participate in photosynthesis, a chemical reaction that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds such as sugars, using the energy from sunlight. In general the more chlorophyll present (the substance that provides the green color to leaves), the more photosynthesis that will be taking place. Therefore as a general rule, the larger and leafier the plant, the more photosynthesis that will be occurring in the presence of sunlight. However, having more indoor plants will not result in a significantly lower carbon dioxide concentration than the rest of the atmosphere, as indoor air is always in communication with the rest of the environment. Also, carbon dioxide at these concentrations is not harmful to humans, and having indoor plants does not result in significant air detoxification that can be attributed to any meaningful health benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
