Plants are known for their various properties and the natural scent and freshness they bring to their surroundings. However, that seems to do barely enough to tackle the ever-increasing pollution the world is plagued by. A small business in France has been observing the increasing pollution and has come up with a remarkable solution, known as Neoplants, reports Good News Network. Neoplants have been at work to develop plants that fight air pollution and purify the air. According to its website, Neoplants’ Neo P1 is designed to clean indoor air. The best part is that it uses simple science and natural methods with no electricity.

There are undoubtedly various chemicals and unwanted pollution residing inside our houses. Moreover, homes are also victims of the pollutants responsible for ill-health and other severe conditions. Purifiers and other cleaners can help. However, the Neo P1 is designed to provide an effortless and natural mechanism to help clean the indoor air.

Regular plants are known to capture pollutants at a certain speed, but they work only as a secondary factor in promoting healthy and clean air. French scientists and Neoplants’ co-founders Lionel Mora and Patrick Torbey have developed something different and unique. Their idea behind the creation of the Neo P1 was to enhance the cleaning properties and create a plant that adds to the air-cleaning ability. In yet another post, the organization shared in their caption that clean air quality is a must for healthy living. However, indoors have more pollutants than outdoors and to improve the air quality, Neo P1 came into being.

Sharing a picture of the Neo P1 on their Instagram, Neoplants wrote, “Neo P1 is the fruit of over four years of R&D. To bring our super plant to life, we bioengineered its metabolism and microbiome to make it incredibly efficient at cleaning indoor air - while using no electricity, just biology.” The caption further mentioned that the plant captures pollutants at a “supercharged rate.” Not just that, the Neo P1 also captures the toxins and converts them into plant matter to be reused by the plant to grow.

In another post, the company shared how the plants work and compared their efficiency to that of a regular plant using a graph. “Our plants contain advanced metabolism and microbiome engineering technologies, significantly enhancing their air-purifying capabilities compared to ’naturally’ air-purifying houseplants,” the caption read. 

The graph showed that within 8 hours, the Neo P1 purifies way more than a regular plant going all the way down to give the ultimate clean and pure air to breathe in. With several other properties to sweep one off their feet, the Neo P1 sure has a lot covered for many when it comes to purifying air. The company’s first offering is a Devil’s Ivy, which comes with a tall stand that is customized specially for the plant.

Also, there is a reservoir mechanism applied to ensure minimal effort toward caring for the plant. The website mentions that one needs to water the plants once every 2 weeks in summer and once every 3 weeks during winter. In another post, Neoplants shared, “Neo P1 needs very little maintenance and couldn’t be simpler to keep healthy.” It further mentioned that the plant requires basic sunlight and some water and the nutrition, which comes in the form of power drops, comes along with the plant. Neoplants describe the Neo P1 as an “air purifying powerhouse.” Keeping one’s home light, fresh and purified has never been easier.
