*The consistent adding of compost enhances the quality of the soil by improving the air/moisture balance in the root zone, by providing raw material for essential soil organisms such as earthworms, and for lowering the pH (in alkaline soils). Furthermore, it allows for balanced nutrition by making trace elements which are just as essential for plant growth as nitrogen and phosphorous, to become available to the plants' roots.
Many people feel that the use of houseplants is not needed if they are using an air purifier. However, research has shown that even if you use a HEPA air filter or an ionic air purifier, there is a lot of difference that can still be made by many common house plants, which act as a living air purifier. With the exception of an activated carbon filter, common indoor air filters, such as HEPA or ionizers, will totally miss the toxic household gases, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and volatile organic gases (VOG).
The beautiful Kaffir Lily is poisonous. A large amount has to be consumed to see any symptoms which include diarrhea, paralysis, vomiting and collapse. It is only the roots that are poisonous. So your child would have to chow through a lot of Kaffir Lily roots to show any of these symptoms. Chewing on the bark of a Croton will cause mouth irritations. The bark, roots and leaves are poisonous.
As a tip, you need to fertilize and water your banana plant. Use a kind of balanced fertilizer (the ones with 3 numbers on their labels). Since bananas are actually heavy feeders, you need to fertilize them very lightly every time you water them. Don't fertilize if you don't see any active growth.
