  12. Benefits to indoor plantings Plants: • refresh the atmosphere • absorb harmful pollutants +1 plant per 100 square feet +Formaldehyde, Benzene and Trichloroethylene

  13. Plant Requirements Light: • most limiting factor to growing plants indoors • either select plant for light levels or change light intensity to suit the plant chosen • minimum light intensity is that which permits plant to function at slightly exceeding the compensation point

  14. Plant Requirements Temperature: • optimum temperatures are 65 to 75 F

  15. Plant Requirements Temperature: • optimum temperatures are 65 to 75 F • increased temperatures increase photosynthesis and respiration

  16. Plant Requirements Atmosphere: • drafts cause extensive transpiration

  17. Plant Requirements Atmosphere: • drafts cause extensive transpiration • increase relative humidity with humidifiers in the central heating and cooling systems

  18. Plant Requirements Growing Medium: • needs to be porous and well drained and yet retain sufficient water for plant requirements

  19. Plant Requirements Growing Medium: • needs to be porous and well drained and yet retain sufficient water for plant requirements • needs to be light if there are weight restrictions

  20. Plant Problems • Environmental • Cultural • Pests • Diseases • Combination
