    Someone has told me you should not grow plants in your bed room because they produce carbon dioxide during the dark stages (and oxygen during the light stages) and this can be bad for your health.

    Is this true?

    You would need your whole entire room covered with plants to have any effect on you. Plus your supposed to have an intake.. which is an open window and an exhuast... again the open window..

    Well I`d say that`s a load of crap.
    Mankind has been sleeping in the bush for thousands of yrs...and we`re still here.

    Plants do produce CO2 when there is no light available. This occurs because the plants cannot photosynthesize their energy source (no light) and so they must perform respiration. Even though they do produce CO2 I believe the amounts produced are not large enough to do damage to you.

    The only problem with C02 is suffocation anyways. You'd need to have an airtight room to suffer from that.

    Could having other plants around give off Co2 and aid in your plants growth?
