INFLUENCE OF $PELARGONIUM~GRAVEOLENS$ L'HER. ON THE INDOOR AIR MYCOBIOTA
Keywords:houseplant, $Pelargonium~graveolens$, essential oil, micromycetes, antifungal activity
One of the most important problems is to reduce the level of indoor air contamination by micromycete. It is known that houseplants with high phytoncide activity have an antifungal effect. In order to reduce the level of contamination in the air of the office room, $Pelargonium~graveolens$ L'Her. plant and essential oil of Geranium were used. The results of the study showed that the level of air pollution with micromycetes was reduced 3 times when there was a $Pelargonium~graveolens$ plant in the room, and the air contamination is reduced 4 times when there is houseplant combined with Geranium essentiale oil.
