RE: [Histonet] plants in histology lab

From:Tony Henwood

The plants I would suggest are:

Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)
Gerbera (Gerbera jamesonii)
Chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum morifolium) - good for removing formaldehyde,
benzene and ammonia from the air.
Boston Fern (Nephrolepsis exaltata "Bostoniensis") - suggested to be the
best for removing formaldehyde.

Subject: [Histonet] plants in histology lab

We are trying to decide if we should have plants in our  histology lab or
not. It would be nice, for the formalin fumes and such, but we are wondering
about contamination. Does anyone have any suggestions and would certain
plants be better to have than others, or none at all? Thank you, Tina
