The Tera planter is an air purification concept that aims to put the basic principles of biology to use in people's homes and offices. Though it looks like little more than a pot for indoor plants, the device provides clean, pure air by actively removing toxins like formaldehyde, benzene, and other volatile compounds (or VOCs) from the ambient environment.
Plants absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen through photosynthesis, so having any plant indoors is inherently good for the air. However, the Tera planter is far more active in its air purification. It creates air flow by channeling air through its replaceable activated carbon filter surrounding the plant's root zone, capturing the aforementioned VOCs and reducing the ailments that can accrue when they linger.
Because of its versatile design, there are several different plants that can effectively purify the air through the Tera planter, including aloe vera, dumb cane, English ivy, and more.
