Dracina is one of NASA’s approved air purifying plants
NASA conducts research on domestic landscaping plants to eliminate indoor polluted air. They test some plants to find out how much they have the ability to remove certain chemicals like trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, benzene. These common volatile biochemicals are available in our various house-making equipment and home cleaning products.
Several Dracina plants are tested and are found to be able to remove these chemicals at much higher levels than other common domestic plants. The “Janet Craig” varieties Dracina will have the highest height than the other varieties. Many research reports confirm this.
Care can be taken very easily
Dracina is one of the simplest care plants. It is as easy to care for as a succulent plant . Chlorine-free water should be sprayed throughout the tree. Using direct tap water is harmful because it contains chlorine. Therefore, only purified water or rain water can be used for maximum results. Most plants do not like high chlorine water.
