The Livistona is a special plant! Not only does it look very nice, it is also very healthy for you. It was not for nothing that he was named 'Deskplant of the Year' a few years ago. In 2012, plants were tested in a laboratory on behalf of the Flower Council of Holland. The extent to which the plants remove chemicals such as formaldehyde and benzene from the air was examined. A professional jury then determined a top 3: the Calathea, Ficus Ginseng and Livistona (all three in the Decorum range!). Chairman of the jury, Prof. Dr. Bert van Duijn of Fytagoras Plant Science: “The laboratory research shows that the Livistona is a very good air purifier and has a positive influence on the humidity in the interior. This desk plant therefore plays an important role in combating the so-called Sick Building Syndrome, so that various health complaints such as eye irritation, headaches and fatigue at home and in the office are reduced.
