Plants to improve sleep quality?

Does anybody keep certain plants in the bedroom to improve sleep quality?
 
I've read that Aloe Vera produces oxygen at night, and finally found some in Lidl.  I have one on the bedside, but think they need to be in direct sunlight...
 
Not sure if this is just snake oil, but does anybody else do this?

Plants don't produce oxygen at night as there is no light to carry out photosynthesis (a product of which is oxygen). They will be producing carbon dioxide though via respiration.

Did you ever think of asking the plants what they want, you're basically jailing them against their will, you beast...
















Too soon ?

Not looking into it I could see how plants like Lavender, Rosemary or Jasmine help you sleep due to the relaxing or calmative effect of their scent.

It's not too soon no, I think vegantalk.co.uk is severely lacking in quality debates about the rights of plants.

Never thought about plants but considered an ioniser or purifier but was never convinced they where worth the money , for now i just place a 35 day hung steak in my room and it sends me off to sleep immediatley

I would like to see some decent science backing this up, rather than woolly anecdotes.

Since eating a Vegan diet (mostly whole foods) I noticed I need much less sleep, I know you want better sleep, but a Vegan diet pretty much helps with everything so give it a try.

I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

Can echo that statement, why just yesterday I had stage 5 brain cancer so I adopted a vegan diet and almost instantaneously grew another head just as the old one fell off, you're probably thinking no way but honestly, try it and see.

Except aloe vera (amongst a few other succulents).  It absorbs CD during the day and produces oxygen overnight.
 
I've since bought another two and placed them around the room...

Thanks Boss, but I've thought about vegan and it's not for me.  Nothing against it but I firmly believe in the requirement for animal based fuel which can be sourced ethically.

To elaborate...
 
Many succulents preserve water during the day and perform Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) which means they are capable of absorbing CO2 and producing O2 during both the night and day cycle (but mainly at night).
