AIR

Air… so what is the correlation between air and trading? It’s very correlated. Trader is a human being, and human needs air. Unless the trader is an EA (Expert Advisor that does automated trade) that doesn’t need air, then air is a basic necessity for most creatures.

Traders spend most of their time indoor. Hence, air quality is crucial but often neglected, until trader feels sick. Living in bad air condition can give a bad impact to your health. Pollen, dust, mold, bacteria, pet dander may lead to allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems. Moreover, bad air condition can worse condition for those with allergies.

Thanks to Mother Nature, it is easy to get fresh air, just learn from the nature. In NASA research, they found that several indoor plants can do a lot of ‘cleaning’ to improve air quality inside our house / room.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_air-filtering_plants).

I personally grow sansevieria (known as snake – plant or mother – in – law’s tongue). I chose this plant because it’s easy to maintain, absorbs a lot of toxins, produces oxygen even during night time, needs little space, can grow to several sizes, and easy to breed. Because snake-plant grows in slow rate, it gives me ample time to produce my own vermicompost, so I can save money on fertilizer.

Snake-plant is very easy to maintain. It’s a very tolerant plant. Event though you neglect it, it still can survive. It requires warm – hot temperature, indirect light, little water. If you want to breed it, just cut the leaf into small pieces (about 2 inch length) and put it on the soil. Please note, that the bottom side of the leaf has to be placed in the soil, don’t put it up-side-down. Soil has to be dry to moist. Do not over watering the soil, otherwise, the root will rot.
