Negative Ions and the effect they have on indoor plants

I often google for things trying to find an authority on a subject who has written about it, yet the first ten pages I click on always seem to be an expert only to not be once you check thoroughly. It makes it hard to really know what is true, what is hearsay and what has just been made up. Blogs are really the main culprit causing opinions to be taken as fact.

I often try and check claims made by any article, regardless who has written it. One such claim has been the increased rate at which plants grow in an area highly saturated with negative ions. The problem with this was that it was a claim made in research done by some university or another that then kept on being repeated, with the original paper being hard to find. I make it my business to know the true extent that negative ions affect us, our animals and our plants.

This is why first-hand experience is always a wonderful thing to share especially when you have proof. I always like hearing and seeing first-hand experience on things because there often is no hidden agenda.

We have a tree, not sure what type it is but we have had it for about 2 years located either in the living room or on the balcony.  It's beautiful and grows predominantly at the top, sprouting new leaves and branches, with the rest of the tree growing very slowly. Each growth spurt can easily be seen and compared to previous growth spurts.

The plant has been growing evenly for the entire time we had it and there never really was any distinguishable changes in rate or speed of growth. Not until recently anyway. In our old apartment, it spent the past 12 months or so either on the balcony or in the living room more than 2 meters away from the closest ionizer. We moved apartment and as it happens the tree is now located very close (15 inches) to one of our High Output Negative Ion Generators. The ion count around the tree is around 100-200 Million ions/cc (cubic centimeter).

As we can see in the first picture the change is quite noticeable and you can see the growth being near enough double that of what we have previously seen.

The second picture from a different angle shows more height during this past 4-6 weeks growth along with a much longer extension of the leaves.

This shows clearly, given that you can accept my post to be written truthfully, that high levels of negative ions aid plant growth and do so quite noticeably. We have not done anything differently in regards to care and watering. The only change is a new apartment where it gets the same if not slightly less sun.

I do believe the picture will show much more than what I can possibly say and hope you find it as wonderful as I do. If something aids a plant that is not subject to placebo, then the chance that it truly does aid our health and that of our animals is quite high.

I have no doubt high levels of negative ions aid our bodies in many ways, certainly not a cure all magical pill as some would try to advertise them, but a wonderful boost to our health.

As always, the ionizer in the particular picture is a NaturAir Twin Air Pro Negative Ion Generator and can be found here: www.naturaironline.com/contents/en-uk/p7_Twin-Air-Pro-Ionizer-Negative-Ion-Generator.html
