Money Plants in Bedrooms: Pros and Cons
If you’re looking to add more plants to your bedroom, the money tree is known for bringing money luck. It can also be used to help those with bad habits. You should think about what you want in Feng Shui and then decide where the money will flow from the money plant. If it’s near your bedside table, they are likely to absorb any negative energy while you sleep there.
Many people like money plants because they are easy to care for and they look great. They also don’t take up a lot of space, which is good for small apartments or bedrooms. However, money plants need light in order to grow properly. So if you’re going to put one in your bedroom, make sure the windows aren’t covered by curtains all day long! There are many advantages and disadvantages when it comes to money trees (or money plants) in a bedroom.
Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of having a money plant in your bedroom to help you decide if they are the right item for you.
Do money plants improve the air quality?
Money plants can be a natural way of removing toxins and other chemicals from the air. They absorb carbon dioxide, which is one of these toxic substances that money trees can help remove. So having a money tree in your bedroom could potentially lead to better breathing for those who sleep there often. However, not all money plants are safe for this use because some types release harmful gases when they are exposed to light at night as well as during daylight hours. If you want to make sure it’s good for your sleeping space, read about what type is best before buying!
Is money tree noisy?
It may depend on how large the leaves grow, but many say that money trees don’t make much noise. If the money plant is climbing a trellis or hanging from a wire, then there may be some movement, but not enough to wake someone up.
Do money plants smell bad?
Some people might find money plants’ scent pleasant while others don’t think it smells good and say that money trees have an unpleasant odor when they are in bloom as well as during other seasons. Some even consider their fragrance to be somewhat offensive at times! Again this can depend on what type of money tree you get, so make sure you read before getting anything for your bedroom’s air quality.
Money plants can be messy.
Money plants release oils through their leaves, leading to stains on fabric items such as curtains and bedding if they rub against the money plant. They also drop leaves which can be a pain to clean up!
Money plants don’t last very long.
This is one of the main disadvantages when it comes to money trees in bedrooms because money plants don’t last very long at all. It’s difficult for them to survive indoor conditions, and so they typically die after only a year or two.
But the money tree has beneficial aspects too!: Money trees are easy to care for, require low maintenance, and do not take up much space – good features that would appeal to many people who live in small apartments or have limited bedroom spaces.
Where should I put my money plant in my bedroom?
The money tree thrives best in a bright, warm environment with plenty of indirect sunlight. So if you want your money plant to be happy and healthy, it’s important that you put the money tree near a window or outside if possible so that it can soak up all those rich natural light rays.
If possible, place the money plant in front of an east-facing window that will benefit from the morning sun in spring and summer, and then face it towards a west-facing window in the afternoon.
What would I do if my money tree had wilted leaves?
This is totally normal for the money tree because they’re sensitive to temperature changes. If you find that your money plants’ leaves start drooping again when brought back inside after being outside all day, try keeping them indoors until early morning hours, then take him outside as soon as he wakes up. This will help ensure his health while staying warm during this cold season.
If the money plant’s leaves start turning brown and drooping, it may not be getting enough light because it might be too dark inside or outside. The money tree needs lots of bright natural sunlight to thrive! So hang out with your money tree by taking him outside all day long, where he’ll happily get his fill of sunshine (or move him in front of a south-facing window).
If your money tree’s leaves are yellowing, it may be getting too much sunlight. The money plant should only get indirect natural light (through a window) or artificial light to keep its lovely green color and avoid the yucky brown and yellow colors!
Do money plants release oxygen overnight?
A money plant will not produce as much oxygen during the nighttime hours as it does during the daytime because its juglone-producing leaves close up at night so that they won’t be damaged by exposure to light from lamps or fixtures in your home. And while this toxic foliage may help you sleep better if you have one near your bedside table (because of its ability to purify indoor air), this doesn’t make them effective when it comes to producing more than average amounts.
Money plants can release some oxygen at night, but they don’t have the same ability to do so as other houseplants. In addition, unlike a lot of indoor plants, money trees are not good air purifiers because their foliage is toxic to humans and animals when ingested in large quantities or over time.
The money tree has leaves that produce a substance called juglone, which breaks down into hydrogen cyanide gas if it combines with water. Juglone may also be an allergen for some people who come into contact with money plant leaves on a regular basis (like those who work in nurseries).
So while money plants might help you sleep better by releasing more oxygen during the day than most plant species, they don’t do much for air quality overnight.
Can plants kill you at night?
Some money tree plants are toxic to humans. Of course, not all money trees can kill you, but it is speculated that the money tree plant in one bedroom killed a human because of its toxicity levels at night time when sleeping. The money tree plant has an excessively high number of chloroplasts that generate oxygen during photosynthesis and has been shown to be dangerous for people who sleep near them due to their production of nitric oxide (NO). It’s also believed this gas will cause headaches, nausea, or fatigue if inhaled over long periods hereof.
The fumes from these plants are not absorbed by clothing or bedding, so there may be no warning signs until symptoms start appearing like respiratory irritation and eye damage leading up to more life-threatening conditions.
What are the disadvantages of a money plant?
Since the plant is so popular, you must be aware of a few disadvantages before you decide to keep one.
First, this plant produces an abundance of tiny flies that are very annoying. They are called midges. These insects are attracted to light, and they swarm around windows at night. This can be quite frustrating if you have just spent money on new blinds or curtains but now have to deal with fly swarms every night! The best way to eliminate them is by covering your window with netting or some other kind of screen material. You may also get rid of the plants in your room because even if the flies aren’t visible during the day, they will still breed and come back once they get dark.
Another disadvantage is that the plant can be toxic and cause liver damage if you eat it. Finally, it doesn’t look like anything special and certainly not edible, but many people have reported eating money plants or parts of it at one time or another. However, despite the fact that this plant has been used as medicine in China for over ten years now (it even has a Chinese name!), it is still unknown which chemical compound does what. So don’t risk your health by eating any part of this plant!
And lastly, money plants are toxic because of the chemical compounds they contain. Even if you don’t decide to eat this plant, you could still be affected simply by touching the soil. If a pregnant woman spends too much time around these plants, it may cause certain complications during pregnancy and birth. The reason for this is unknown as well. So be careful with this plant or purchase a fake one instead!
– Money plant produces swarms of tiny flies during night hours which can attract insects from other parts of your room. To get rid of them, cover the window with netting or screen material.
– Don’t eat money plant because it has been known to produce liver damage.
