Many of you might be surprised, but all plants and trees are not meant to be in our living/ work spaces. As we know plants have the direct relation with human life, as whatever is emitted by the plants in the form of gas is inhaled by humans. While several plants add positivity to the environment, there are some trees and plants which emit harmful gases and negative vibes and thus are not safe for us.
