All : All plants participate in photosynthesis, a chemical reaction that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds such as sugars, using the energy from sunlight.

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

Each person will consume about 250 ml of oxygen per minute and will produce about 200 ml of co2 per minute. So, over time, the changes in oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations will be significant & ultimately, if enough time passes, may be fatal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
