"Translocation" is the process of microscopic pores in a plant's leaves (stomata) absorbing harmful airborne substances inside your home then moving them to their root zone where soil microbes break them down into food for both plant and soil. These microbes adapt to what pollutants are present and mutate to become increasingly efficient. The longer they're placed in a room, the better their ability to clean the surrounding air.
