We all know that plants convert CO2 to breathable oxygen, which is a fine reason to keep a few in the house. What I never knew until reading The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia, is that while most plants are active during the day, there are several that are active only at night. Aloe is among them.
This makes aloe a perfect plant to keep in the bedroom, which I started doing a few weeks ago. I can’t say for sure that I’ve noticed a big difference in the quality of the air, but I do love the idea of cleaning the air in the kids rooms while they sleep. I’m also adding a few succulents to the decor in our family room. I’m generally terrible with plants, but things that need little attention should be manageable.
