The best plants for your office.
Plants naturally transform any space into a more peaceful and relaxing area. Adding plants to your workspace can be very beneficial to your environment and your mood, but, you need to choose plants impossible to kill. Here’s how to pick the right ones for your workplace.
When everything else has failed, who didn't buy cactus? Commonly found in dry deserts, the cacti plant is one of the only plants that actually thrive on neglect. It can contain a huge amount of water enabling the plant to withstand even the most forgetful office workers. Cacti do prefer higher light levels, so if you are lucky enough to have a window desk they will thrive.
Philodendron has always been a famous indoor plant. Preferring low humidity and temperatures of around 65-68°F, they are ideal for offices as they can be used as part of a large display in the corner of the office.
Devil's Ivy, also known as Pothos is a type of evergreen vine. This species adapts well to a variety of office conditions, from low light levels to brighter ones. They make a lovely addition sitting on a desk, shelf or table.
The tough nature of the Sansevieria, also known as snake plant or mother-in-law's tongue, means that it might continue to grow into its owner's retirement. Look for a dwarf selection like 'Futura Superba' or 'Whitney.' Perfect for interiors, snake plants require little special attention: simply dump your water bottle on it on your way out the door on Friday and enjoy this slow-growing desk plant.
Growers sometimes shape lucky bamboo stems into fun shapes like spirals, weaves, or even hearts. Lucky bamboo requires little light and can grow without soil when the stems are submerged in water, but make sure the water level doesn't sink below the stems or the plant may not recover from this desiccation.
The ZZ plant is a succulent with two characteristics that have helped it become famous as a houseplant: tolerance to low light and the ability to grow with little water. The laddered leaves of the common ZZ plant are a beautiful addition to the office setting, but the black leaves of the 'Raven' cultivar look stunning against a white desktop.
