    Plants and carbon monoxide


    Is there any possibility that an abundance of plants in a home could prevent carbon monoxide alarms from detecting a leak? I ask as I've read that some plants can absorb carbon monoxide and not just CO2. Is this anything to worry about?

    "No. Whilst some CO will be absorbed, you’d have to have a rainforest before it would make any significant difference."
