Do n’t keep these poisonous flowers at home
Flowers and plants in the home are like a “natural oxygen bar”. If you raise them well, they are pleasing to the eye and good for your health. If you do n’t raise them well, they may be counterproductive.
Ivy smoking, living room, fortune tree, moisturizing pendulum, seven corners, seven flower floor windows, sun rooms, green plants, flowers . These pleasing layouts have increasingly appeared in families.
Although the flowers and plants are good, they are not arbitrarily placed, and if they are not properly placed, they will affect health.
You Jie, an associate professor in the Department of Agronomy at China Agricultural University, suggested that it is best to choose different flowers and plants according to the different characteristics of each corner of the house.
The living room has ivy vacuuming and smoking mist.
Professor Liu Yan of Botany, College of Landscape Architecture, Beijing Forestry University said that ivy, figs, pitcher plants and aloe vera can deal with bacteria, small bugs, etc. brought back from above, and even absorb fine dust.
And ivy can absorb smoke and resist carcinogens in making nicotine.
The bedroom has cacti that provide oxygen.
You Jie said that the bedroom is more suitable for placing flowers and plants that can absorb exhaust gas such as carbon dioxide.
For example, the stomata on the succulent stem of a cactus are closed during the day and opened at night, which can produce oxygen and increase the concentration of negative ions in the indoor air.
In addition, tigertail orchid, aloe, and spider plant absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen throughout the day, while agave and rooting are also effective for purifying the night air.
The kitchen places spider plants to purify the air.
The kitchen is a place where oil fume is generated. Liu Yan said that there are inverters to purify the air, such as spider plant, green dill, and adiantum, to drive off mosquitoes.
Studies have shown that Chlorophytum can absorb a variety of harmful gases indoors, especially its ability to absorb formaldehyde, and can reduce bacteria and microorganisms in the air.
Suggests refreshing mint.
Flowers such as mint and jasmine have a refreshing effect, and are best placed on the desk in the study, which can help improve the efficiency of study and work.
The leaves of the leaf orchid will change temperature and change into green, white, pink, and pink in a cyclic manner. It can also be placed next to it, which can nourish temperament.
Huwei is hygroscopic in the bathroom.
Some small, shade-resistant, germicidal plants, tiger tigertail, ivy, mosquito repellent, ferns, mint, etc. can be placed beside the toilet and the sink.
In particular, the leaves of tigertail orchids can absorb water vapor in the air, which is ideal for bathrooms.
Species creepers on the balcony reduce the sun’s radiation.
The balcony is well-lit, and many hi-yang ornamental plants can be placed, sometimes chrysanthemum, camellia, jasmine, azalea, kumquat, rose, rose, etc.
In addition, climbing plants such as creepers, grapes, morning glory, wisteria, and roses are planted around the home to form a green pergola, which can reduce sunlight radiation and indoor temperature.
The porch releases a fortune tree to maintain humidity.
You Jie said that it is not appropriate to cultivate delicate plants in the entrance.
Professor Liu Yan said that in the porch, some high-stem plants such as aquatic rich bamboos, rich trees, and banyan trees are placed in the windows, which is helpful to maintain the humidity balance in the room.Pleasure.
There are young children who don’t have a bunch of red daffodils, sensitive pregnant women, frail elderly, and active children. They also need special care when choosing flowers and plants.
Pregnant women: Professor Yao Lei, director of Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Aromatic Plant R & D Center, reminded that some aroma plants may cause abortion or diarrhea, such as lavender, fennel, spearmint, etc. It should not be smelled frequently by pregnant women, so as not to affect fetal growth.
In addition, the aromatic odor of pine and cedar flowers and plants has a stimulating effect on the human stomach and intestines, making pregnant women feel upset, nausea and vomiting, and dizziness.
Children: You Jie believes that the flowers and plants in the home should be kept out of reach of infants and young children.
Cactus or prickly pear is prone to stab children, and they need to be placed high; some children like to play with mimosa contains mimosine which is very toxic and replaces hair with excessive contact; the percentage of children with allergies to pollen exceeds that of adults, and lilac maySkin irritation, daffodil juice can cause skin redness.
In addition, the red string is seductive and easy to cause children to eat by accident and cause acute poisoning.
The elderly: Professor Liu Yan said that the fragrance of orchids and lilies can stimulate the central nervous system of the person, causing insomnia to the old people who don’t sleep well; and Ye Laixiang can raise people’s blood pressure and make the elderly with high blood pressure and high blood pressure smell.Feel chest tightness and shortness of breath.
In contrast, coniferous plants release negative ions, which are helpful for treating diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
Too fragrant flowers are poisonous, such as Milan, Coriander, and Hydrangea. Recently, a “plant blacklist” including 52 species of flowers and plants rich in cancer-promoting substances has attracted many people’s attention.
Among these flowers and plants are common red impatiens (also known as henna), begonias (also known as tiger thorns), irises, mandala flowers (also known as foreign flowers), cat’s eye grass, cardinal coral(Also called iron clove), unicorn crown (also known as jade unicorn), etc., especially Impatiens are very common in the south and are often used by people to dye their nails.
So how toxic are these plants?
Professor Yao Lei told reporters that the possibility of direct carcinogenesis by smelling plant odors is not great.”These toxic molecules can cause cancer if they are massaged, contacted with the skin, or entered the bloodstream after consumption.
“Yao Lei said.
”Generally, as long as the plants are placed in a more ventilated place, they will not be harmful to the body if they are not touched with their hands or with their mouths.
“Wang Youjiang, secretary general of the China Vanilla Industry Alliance, said that for some stranger plants, do not touch it with your hand and mouth easily.
”More than these uncommon carcinogenic plants, many aromatic plants should be avoided.
Professor Liu Yan suggested that indoor flowers should not be selected from Milan, Ruixiang, Hydrangea, Bauhinia, Coriander, etc., so as to avoid a variety of adverse respiratory reactions.
But something that is not odorous is poisonous. Professor Yao Lei said that the volatile substances of mint, perilla, Australian tea tree, eucalyptus oil, lemongrass, etc. are not harmful. On the contrary, they have the function of sterilizing and purifying the air.
Tips for planting flowers: Don’t put the plant next to the discharger: the form released in the home appliance will harm the plant, and watering will easily spill water on the appliance, causing a short circuit.
Orange peels are fertilized to prevent odor: Fertilizers often have a smell after fermentation. Add orange peels when adding fertilizer to increase nutrition and deodorize.
Tile pottery pots are the most breathable: flower pots use the traditional tile pots for drainage and breathability, but they are not beautiful and not strong; secondly, unglazed pottery pots or purple sand pots, which are permeable and breathable, are suitable for precious flowers and plants;, Glazed pots are suitable as nest pots or large plants; plastic pots are not suitable for delicate flowers and plants, suitable for easy-to-plant plants such as spider plants; glass pots can be used for small leaf-seeding plants such as watercress greens.
