    About This Project

    Formaldehyde is known to cause adverse health effects, and a majority of homes have significant levels of this toxin. Certain plants have bacteria in their root systems that can break down formaldehyde. By providing more oxygen to the roots through a special potting method, I expect to drastically increase the rate of formaldehyde consumption. This would allow people to experience cleaner air in their homes.

    Blast off!
