Aglaonema modestum

Aglaonema modestum

Helps to eliminate, in closed environments, toluene and benzene, toxic substances that can be found at home as well as in the office since they are used for the preparation of glues, lacquers, adhesives, paints, solvents and cleaning products
A NASA-commissioned study of the ‘70s has made it possible to identify 50 plants able to eliminate toxic substances that tend to accumulate in the environment in which we live. In fact, rooms, houses and offices are often very polluted places due to the presence of substances such as benzene, toluene or formaldehyde emitted by paints, furniture, plywood, solvents and glues and some types of plants can help improve the microclimate with the recommendation to put a plant every 9 square meters of surface to ensure a protective effect. The most active plants against pollution are those belonging to the family of Liliaceae or, as in the case of the Aglaonema modestum, of the Aracee. The name of Aglaonema modestum comes from the Greek àglaos which means shiny and nemà, string, with a reference to the flower stamens. This is a plant native to China, well-appreciated as an apartment plant for its beauty but also for ease of cultivation, it likes light but it can live well also in low-light condition, tolerates temperatures around 10° as well as much higher as those that can be found in a home during summer, the only thing is to make sure that the ground of the plant is damp, for this reason you can spray it. But the characteristics of Aglaonema do not end there, in fact this plant has an action against the toluene of paints, solvents, lacquers and adhesives, in fact it is able to eliminate the 92% of this substance, and against benzene, a substance that can be found in resins, detergents, paints, cleaning products, inks and adhesives. The Aglaonema can remove the 47.6% of benzene.
