Our hospital Safety and Infection Control departments have policies in place prohibiting any potted plants from being in the hospital, anywhere.  We can have them if they are only in water, but the soil presents an infection control issue for patients because of potential mildew, mold, spores, etc.

Happy Friday all!

Does anyone have documentation of the benefit of having plants in the lab?  I know this was discusses quite a while ago but I can't find references for it.  Any help would be appreciated.
