The Plant Air Purifier pot is specifically designed to help live plants clean toxic indoor air in homes and offices. The polluted air is cleansed when travelling over the roots of the plant. A built in electric fan increases the volume of air that passes over the roots and thus cleanses even more pollution. Activated carbon which is included with the pot also assists in cleaning the air. Microbes on the roots essentially digest and break down the pollutants so that the result is purified air.
You do not use potting soil with this pot. The plant is not put in soil but is planted in the included pellets which allow more air to pass over the roots. This is a more efficient and faster way to clean the air than with a traditional pot. Clean indoor air is essential for optimal health and traditional filters are noisy and expensive to operate.
These pots are a great aid to allergy sufferers and those with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). Remarkably the air cleaning efficiency of the Plant Air Purifier increases over time as more microbes increase on the roots.
The manufacturer of the Plant Air Purifier is the U.S. Health Equipment Company which has a long history of quality products.
