6 x ALOE VERA

The Aloe Vera is a succulent belonging to the family Aloe. It is an evergreen perennial, native of the Arabian Peninsula, growing wild in tropical, semi-tropical and arid climates around the world.

Life span: 12 years
CO2 offset: 25 kg

Aloe Vera is one of the best purifying plants to reduce indoor air pollution. It helps to clear the air of dangerous carcinogens including benzene and formaldehyde. Unlike most plants, aloe releases oxygen and absorbs carbon dioxide during the night, which makes it ideal for the bedroom or indoor environment.

It grows slowly and has thick pointed leaves with white transparent gel inside. Like other Aloe species, Aloe vera forms arbuscular mycorrhiza, a symbiosis that allows the plant to have better access to mineral nutrients in the soil. It is a medicinal plant used for various treatments.

This species is planted in India by our partner Venuza Pvt.

4 x LEMON

Lemon is a species of small evergreen tree belonging to the family Rutaceae, native to South Asia. The origin of the lemon is unknown, though lemons are thought to have first grown in Assam (a region in northeast India), northern Burma or China. A genomic study of the lemon indicated it was a hybrid between bitter orange and citron.

1 x FICUS BENGHALENSIS

Ficus Benghalensis belongs to the family Moraceae. It is known to be among the largest trees in the world in terms of canopy coverage as it can reach 12,000 sqm. Thanks to its size, the tree provides shade in hot climate areas.

Life span: 400 years
CO2 offset: 1.100 kg
Height: up to 600 m

Ficus Benghalensis produces propagating roots which grow downwards as aerial roots. Once these roots reach the ground they turn into woody trunks. Because of this characteristic and its longevity, this tree is considered immortal and is an integral part of the myths and legends of India.

The figs produced by the tree are eaten by birds such as the Indian myna. Ficus seeds that pass through the digestive system of birds are more likely to germinate and sprout earlier.
