It is a well known fact that plants take in Carbon dioxide (Co2) and release Oxygen (O2), which is used by living beings to breathe.
But this process occurs during the day in the presence of sunlight and it is reversed during night time.
Now, it starts to release CO2 instead of O2 as a result of respiration, that is why it is advised to not keep certain plants in your bedroom as they increase the CO2 level at night.
But luckily there are a few plants which are able to absorb Co2 and release oxygen during night time as well keeping the oxygen level at good quantity. (Note – The amount of oxygen released is very less compared to day time)
And today I am going to tell you about such plants.
