Product Description

The Compact Plant Air Purifier naturally cleans the air in your room and only costs around $3 a year in electricity.

If you're looking for a simple, natural and effective way to purify the air in your space, the Compact Plant Air Purifier might be exactly what you need. At just 7.5" high and 8.5" wide and coming in five colors, it fits easily into any room, and can clean a 12' by 15' room in four hours or less. Depending on your locality's electricity prices, it usually only costs about $3 annually to run.

What is a Plant Air Purifier?

This is a simple air filtration system that includes a planter, a special ceramic growing media, a low voltage power supply an activated carbon. The planter is made of an outer reservoir that can hold water for up to a week, and a perforated inner pot. An electric fan in the planter ventilates the system and automatically turns off if water runs too low. This keeps the roots from drying if there isn't enough water. A plant of your choice, periodic watering and a few nutrients every few months is all you need.

It works effectively to remove chemical vapors like benzene, formaldehyde, xylene, trichloroethylene, ammonia, acetone, alcohols, allergens, and dust from the air. This leaves your air healthier, cleaner, and with a better smell.

It's ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, offices, kitchens, factories and more.

How does it work?

The inner pot ensures maximum air flow through the activated carbon and media so the air is cleaned more efficiently. The water window allows you to see when you need to water (usually about once a week depending on the plant and humidity).

The system pulls air through the growing media, which captures pollutants. Activated carbon works like a magnet and holds them there until the root system's microbes can use the pollutants for food, breaking them down and digesting them. 

Plant Air Purifier

What is Hydroculture?

With hydroculture, you grow plants without soil. It's also known as passive hydroponics. Plants get support from specially made ceramic stone or expanded clay. The growing media's wicking action provides minerals and moisture to the roots. No messy transplanting every year, and no harboring bacteria, mold or bugs. The media is odorless and inert. This method helps remove allergens like dander and dust as well as odors, making it a great choice for those who suffer from allergies.

Which plants can I use?

All plants can clean the air, but golden pothos and snake plants are especially recommended. They are very adaptive to new environments and robust. Plants sometimes have a shock period when moved from soil to hydroculture, and golden pothos and snake plants handle this acclimation better than some others.

If you have more experience with hydroculture and the maintenance required for transplanting and post-potting, these are often used due to their proven removal of toxins: lady palm, rubber plant, dumb cane, arecca palm, peace lily, warnecki dracaenas and corn plant. Choose a plant that best suits your situation (and your pets).

Comparing the Compact Plant Purifier and Other Options

Compared to HEPA Filters: A HEPA filter by itself won't remove Volatile Organic Compounds, but the Plant Purifier will. Some HEPA filters have activated carbon, but not nearly as much as the Plant Purifier (five pounds). The Plant Purifier adapts to pollutants and VOCs over time so it becomes even better at eliminating them. HEPA filters lose effectiveness over time and require replacements. The Plant Purifier just needs water and occasional plant food. Plus, the Plant Purifier is much more attractive.

Compared to Electronic Precipitators: The efficiency of an electronic precipitator decreases as the plates get loaded with particles or as the velocity of air flow decreases. Because it is self-cleaning, the Plant Air Purifier maintains a constant cleaning rate. This increases over time as the plant microbes adapt to the environment. Collector plates in electronic precipitators need to be cleaned regularly.

Compared to Normal Potted Plants: Indoor plants in soil can provide some air purification, but the Plant Air Purifier has a much better air movement and access to root microbes, making it up to 60 times better as an air cleaner than other plants.

Fungus, mold and insects can be a problem with soil but are much less of a concern with hydroculture. Because the surface of hydrocultured plants pebbles dry quickly, it doesn't support fungus and mold growth.
