You don’t have to worry about your lack of knowledge because we’ve come up with some ideas for the perfect office plant to add some color and fresh air to your environment.
1. Jade Plant
Jade plants (also known as money plants) are an extremely popular succulent Crassula. These are versatile plants that work in a room with direct natural sunlight or in a windowless room that leaves it somewhat in the shadows.
They don’t require a lot of attention and as with most succulents, they are forgiving if you forget to water them.
And bonus, they are said to bring financial success. Who doesn’t want that kind of energy at work with them every day? It is an aesthetically pleasing and unassuming plant that will add rich colors to your office decor.
2. Peace Lily
Peace lilies (or SPATHIPHYLLUM) are larger plants that clean the air well. This is particularly helpful in an office where you are exposed to many chemicals from printers, lights, paper, rubber, adhesives and more.
Large plants like peace lilies can help clear these chemicals from the air at a fast rate and help you breathe easier.
Peace lilies do require more attention than some plants and prefer the soil kept moist
3. Snake Plant
You may not like snakes but the snake plant or sansevieria cylindrica can add some color and class to your office space. This plant is durable and forgiving to an office environment.
They prefer bright and filtered light sources but can grow well in a partly or completely shaded area. They don’t need natural light and can live through a drought so you don’t have to feel guilty if you forget to water it or the office closes for the holidays.
4. Spider Plants
Spider plants or chlorophytum comosum are another durable plant that will survive well in most environments and thrive with indirect bright light, which is often the case during the day in an office.
They can handle environmental temperature changes and do best when in a pot with moist well-drained soil.
5. Devil’s Ivy
This ivy can grow up to 6 to 8 feet in length when not tended to or pruned. They don’t require direct sunlight and can flourish with moist soil and bright artificial lights or indirect sunlight.
They are also versatile in that they thrive in or outdoors and are hardy enough to endure office moves, changes in temperature and environment.
Breathe Easier with an Office Plant
