Indoor plants can contribute to healthy building design through improving the indoor air quality and the well-being of building occupants. In built environments where people lack contact with nature, indoor plants have been shown to reduce stress and depression and improve work performance.

But how do plant species and environmental factors affect their impact on air quality and how do people respond to different indoor plants?

These are the questions being investigated by Researchers at the TSBE Centre in the University of Reading, who aim to provide new scientific data on the use of indoor plants in the design of healthy buildings.

You are invited to contribute to this research by giving your opinions on the appearance of a selection of indoor plants, in a short, 10 minute, survey provided through the link below:
