Extra: Absorption of Substances From the Air
A plant can convert unhealthy substances into other substances, which can serve as food for the plant, for example, or are transported to other parts of the plant. In order to achieve this, these substances from the air must reach the interior of the plant, the cells. And so the plants have to absorb these substances from the air.
The leaves of many plants are specialized in absorbing substances from the air. After all, the CO2 in the air has to be absorbed so that it can be converted into sugars and oxygen using light, and the oxygen produced in this way must be released into the air. Other substances that are present in the air also penetrate the plant via this absorption-route, and water evaporates from the plant as well.
A Well Regulated Process
The absorption of substances from the air by the leaves is a well-regulated process. There are special entrance gates in the leaves that regulate the exchange of substances between the open air and the interior of the leaf. These small gates, the stomata, can be opened and closed by the plant. The opening and closing of the stomata are controlled by an ingenious system that is influenced by many factors. The stomata are open if the light is present and the plant wants to absorb CO2 in order to produce sugars for the growth of the plant. The stomata close if too much water evaporates, as a result of which the plant may dehydrate. The more the interior of the plant is accessible for the exchange of substances in the air, the better the air-purifying effect.
