Not hydrogen, of course, but carbon dyoxide, which isn't also very
beneficial in large amounts, so it's not recomended to have a lot of plants
inside your sleeping room, especialy when it's too small and without good
ventilation. One or two small plants without sharp aroma will suit for your
room, but anyway, I won't fight with your mom for this ;^)
