Smoke and its effect on plants

Post by Hickory » Tue Jan 31, 2006 9:07 am

Hi all,

Just wondering how smoke can affect your average everyday household plants, if smoke was constantly present (hypothetically).

Possible conclusion:

Plants were unaffected, but experimenters developed lung cancer.

If there is heat ( i'm writing this after thinking about the old saying " no smoke without fire " :lol: so if there is fire, then it could heat the plant, can't it? ), then the plant will be affected...

Of course smoke can damage the plant. It can do so by decreasing the rate of photosynthesis because less CO2 is coming in, O2 is harder to evacute and the smoke is clogging the guard cells of stomata
