In this study, the authors made a non-steady state simulation model of the thermal environment and comfort in the rooms where plants were placed. The room which was assumed in the simulation model was the same room that used in our previous experiment (Asaumi et al., J. Archit. Plann. Environ. Eng., AIJ, 464, 1994) . Ornamental foliage plants which were assumed to be placed in the room were Schefflera arboricola “Hong Kong, ”Dracaena fragrans“Massangeana, ”Ficus benjamina and Epipremnum aureum, and the stomatal resistances and shading ratios measured in our previous experiment (Asaumi et al., SHITA J., 4 (2), 1993) were applied. Simulation was conducted concerning the data on January 5, 1993, and the results were compared with the results of our previous experiment (Asaumi et al., 1994) . Furthermore, simulation was conducted concerning the data on the standard sunny day in April. The results of the simulation of January 5, 1993 showed the same tendency as the results of our previous experiment (Asaumi et al., 1994), so the simulation model was considered to be valid. Therefore, the simulation model is useful for the design of the thermal environment and comfort in rooms where plants are placed.
