9 Indoor Plants That Absorb Radiation

9 Indoor Plants That Absorb Radiation

emf plants

Most of our technological creation is polluting the surrounding with tiny levels of radiation. That would not have been a cause of concern if it were one or two devices. But if we count all the radiation sources around us, the situation looks a lot worse. You probably heard about the recent discoveries showing how plants could play an active role as EMF protectors.

Plants such as different species of Cactus, Aloe Vera, Stone Lotus have radiation absorbing properties. You can place them around EMF sources to blunt the blow of household EMF pollution.

There are many other plants that also absorb radiation from their surroundings. These radiation-absorbing plants are a boon to modern civilization, and we can use them to walk towards a safer future. We spent a long time sorting out the best plants that absorb radiation, and we will share that information with you through this article.

How Do Plants Protect Against EMF?

Specific plants with high water content can actually absorb radiation and nullify its effects. It has everything to do with how curtained plants are structured. 

Using plants to fight against EMF radiation is a relatively new concept. It started with various space agencies experimenting on the possibility of sustaining plants in outer space. These plants had to survive extreme temperatures, as well as radiation. 

After some testing, they found out that some plants are exceedingly good at absorbing radiation. That includes both non-ionizing and ionizing radiation. The EMF that plants absorb stays within them and turns into heat. 

It works on all EMF radiation, so experts suggest that these plants can play an active role as EMF protectors alongside DE filters and EMF clothes. The absorption rate of the EMF is related to the structural integrity of the plant. Scientists found that plants with a higher water ratio work best.

The plant stability does not refer to the hardness of the plant, and the water content does not mean the watery nature. Radioprotective plants have stronger hydrogen bonds that help absorb more ionized and non-ionized radiation.

Among all the common houseplants, succulents are the best at absorbing EMF radiation. Cacti are the best candidates for radioprotection by far, according to most researchers. Blue columnar cactus, Saguaro Cactus, Bunny Ears Cactus are some of the most common, and easy to grow cacti in the world.

This cactus collection is one of the best ones we have come across so far. There is an assortment of popular cacti in there, and they fit well with any environment. We suggest placing them in your home office, and around EMF sources.

Most cacti have a fast growth rate and tough constitutions. Scientists placed cacti as the best plant for radiation absorption because their primary goal was to find plants that could survive in adverse conditions.

The idea of using them as EMF protection was a byproduct of their endeavor. It turns out cacti are amazing at sucking up radiation from common sources such as cell phones and computers. Cacti are so easy to maintain that anyone can keep them in their homes. 

Bunny Ears Cactus, Saguaro Cactus and Blue columnar cactus are among the best at absorbing radiation. You have to place them between yourself and an EMF source for maximum effect, so try to place them in strategic places to get the most results.

The Snake Plant

  • The plant is about 45-55cm Tall (including pot height),and is grown in a 15cm x 15cm Milano pot

  • Snake plants will improve the air when grown indoors, and the upright leaves are considered good Feng Shui.
  • Please note, the saucer does NOT come with the sale, you could buy it separately from Easy Plants.

Snake plants are also one of the best radioprotective plants on the planet. People also call them Mother-in-Law’s Tongue or Saint George’s Sword in certain countries. Snake plants do not absorb as much radiation as cacti, but they have a better absorption rate. 

These plants play a significant role in purifying the home environment. Snake Plants are so classy that you could place them anywhere in your home. They are good at intercepting radiation from cell signals, so you would benefit from placing them near windows.

But these plants require indirect sunlight. So placing them in direct sunlight for too long is not a good thing. You should place them near windows that do not get more than 4-5 hours of sunlight. You could also place some around the television set. 

Snake plants are a bit more demanding than common cacti. You would need to water them regularly, but that’s about it, there isn’t much else you need to worry about. They produce a lot of oxygen in addition to EMF blocking.

Among all the plants that absorb EMF radiation, Ivy holds a comparatively special place. These plants are great at absorbing radiation from the air, but not on a large volume like cacti. They are more useful against the radiation from dirty electricity.

 

Devil’s Ivy is one of the most common Ivy variants, but it is brutally effective in reducing radiation. That’s not all, it also purifies air by sucking in common pollutants such as benzene and toluene. I don’t know if you are aware of this, but these pollutants are no less harmful than EMF radiation.

 

Benzene in the indoor air is a common cause of cancer. It comes from relatively common household products such as detergents and glue. Devil’s Ivy can absorb these harmful molecules from the air and keep you safe. 

 

We recommend placing them near power outlets and around windows. You may also put some down near your work table and in front of the bathroom. That setup will give you the most coverage out of this plant.

 

Ivy’s like semi-dry condition, so try not to water them too much. These plants thrive in sunlight but don’t place them in direct sunlight.

Echeveria Stone Lotus

Last update on 2021-10-27 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

Echeveria Stone Lotus is great for absorbing computer radiation and DE radiation. It is a compact plant that is easy to maintain. The size of a stone lotus is tiny, and you can place them almost anywhere.

Stone Lotus is one of the best air purifying plants on the market. They absorb tiny dust particles, benzene and xylene from the air in addition to being EMF absorbent.

The Echeveria Stone Lotus is one of the best stone lotus variants for EMF protection because of its wide coverage.

Xylene is a substance commonly found in household products such as adhesives, paints, lacquers and thinners. It mixes into the air as a toxic fume when you work with these materials. Xylene ingestion can irritate the eye, nose, skin, and throat. Suffice to say, it is not any less harmful than EMF radiation.

Echeveria stone lotus does a splendid job of absorbing this toxic fume along with EMF radiation. You can easily dub this plant the guardian of your home. You can expect great results by placing it in front of your computer. It is small enough to not get in the way but efficient enough to protect against radiation.

As with all succulents, stone lotus is also fairly easy to maintain. There isn’t any strict watering schedule, nor do you have to worry about pests. It is a hardy plant that can take care of itself with minimal attention from its owner.

Areca Palm

Areca Palm Tree ‘Dypsis Lutescens’ Houseplant Seeds – Tropical Indoor House Plant – 15 Fresh Rare Seeds Easy to Grow
  • If you’re looking to add a tropical vibe to your home, nothing beats a palm plant. Though palm trees have limited outdoor ranges, once you look for them, you’ll start noticing areca palms in interiors everywhere, from offices to shopping malls.

  • Sow anytime
  • Instructions included
  • Long expiry date

This tropical powerhouse is another great candidate for EMF protection. These plants are a lot hardier compared to typical houseplants and have a ton of purification qualities. It has a wide coverage because of the spread of leaves, and it can reduce all types of radiation in moderate amounts.

We think it is a jack-of-all-trades sort of plant that anyone can keep. It never hurts to have an extra Areca Palm in the drawing-room. Areca Palm purifies the air from toxic particles like the stone lotus, but it covers a more effective area.  

It also works as a temperature stabilizer, tropical palms produce a lot of oxygen compared to other plants, and adds humidity to the air. The rate of air-purification is faster than the previous plants on this list, but it falls behold in radiation absorption.  Its radiation absorption rate is average, but it can take in more volume at a time. 

Aloe Vera

Last update on 2021-10-27 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

Most people know Aloe Vera as a medicinal plant, but few know its value as a radiation shield. It does not pull radio waves toward itself, but it absorbs the ones that come at it. Its absorption rate is also one of the best on this list. It can absorb high levels of ionized and non-ionized radiation from the air.

Aloe Vera will also improve the average level of air purity of your home. This plant is easy to grow but requires regular maintenance. The soil quality and water condition are crucial for grooming it. You would also need to provide sufficient drainage on the pot, as too much water will lead to it getting wilted.

As we all know, non-ionized radiation travels in straight lines. So try to keep it directly between your body and the radiation source like a computer or TV. Aloe Vera does not like direct sunlight, so try not to keep it near the window.

7. Asparagus Fern

1 Easy Plants® Asparagus Setaceus Fern Table Plant @ White Floral Pot & Saucer
  • Asparagus Setaceus Fern: 35-40cm Tall (including pot), Growing in 14cm White Floral Pot with a Matching Saucer

Asparagus Fern is well known for its fragrance and unique exterior. People tend to place them in decorative bowls and vases. These fragrant plants also have radiation-absorbing capabilities that many people do not know about.

It can absorb moderate levels of gamma radiation and X-ray radiation. Asparagus Fern also does well against cell phone radiation or blue light. It is particularly good at naturally neutralizing dirty electricity. The radio waves caused by dirty electricity can not permeate the air if it comes into contact with asparagus fern.

This strong absorption rate makes it one of the best plants to keep near the bed. Place one near the head of our bed, and you will have a lot better sleep in a house filled with rampant dirty electricity.

It is a bit thorny despite its soft appearance, so be careful while touching it. Asparagus Fern does not have that big of a role in purifying the air of toxic molecules. They like staying in humid environments, so do not place them in direct sunlight. You might also need to use a humidifier from time to time if you live in a humid climate.

Rubber Plant

Last update on 2021-10-27 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

The aesthetic rubber plant also has a high level of radiation-absorbing properties. It can absorb the electromagnetic waves from the vicinity at a slow pace.  It is a hardy plant requiring little maintenance, and it boasts a good deal of air-purifying skills.

Rubber plants prefer colder environments and do not like direct sunlight. However, that is only the case for the potted version. You can plant a full-sized rubber plant in the yard if you want.  The full-sized version will provide large-scale protection for your entire home.

Spider Plant

Spider plants look a lot like snake plants, but a lot thinner. They also have more leaves spread out compared to snake plants. The arrangement looks almost like a spider with countless legs spread out. 

They absorb a high level of radiation from computers and cell phones. We already have a lot of plants for computer radiation, but not many against cell signals. Spider plants can solve that problem for us. You can place them around windows and let them act as a barrier against cell radiation.

Spider plants are a hardy bunch. They have no special requirements like some of the other plants on this list, so you only need to do basic maintenance on them.

Conclusion

I hope this article was helpful to you regarding Radioprotective plants. These are the best plants that absorb radiation according to most researchers. The cactus stands out as the overall best, while some of the others have more niche uses. 

They are all great houseplants, and it never hurts to have more green in your home. Thanks a lot for reading till the end and have a nice day.
