Many types of plants are available to spruce up your work space. The Grounds Guys want to make shopping for office plants simple by providing a list of plants to choose, depending on the space and specific needs.
Adding a touch of green to a work space has proven wellness benefits, from improving moods to purifying the air. There are various factors that should be considered when buying plants for the office, ranging from the amount of sunlight needed to how often it should be watered to the type of soil it should be planted in.
A fragrant lemon balm plant is the perfect addition to the office because research suggests this plant stimulates the brain by improving mood and boosting workplace wellness. The lemon balm can tolerate full sunlight or hardly any sunlight, which makes it the perfect plant for anywhere in the office. The care is simple too. Plant in a size-appropriate pot with rich soil and water frequently!
An eye-catching peace lily is one of the best plants for purifying the air in the office. This plant also thrives in the shade, so it will do fine far away from windows. The peace lily also does not need to be watered daily. Keeping the soil moist will help the peace lily thrive well in an office environment.
The English ivy is efficient at absorbing airborne pollutants emitted by computers and office machinery, which can cause headaches and nausea. The English ivy thrives under fluorescent light, making it a great plant for the office. The care is easy. Simply spray the leaves often and keep the plant away from heat vents to prevent the leaves from drying out.
If you want to add just a small touch of green to an office desk or a cubicle, a bamboo plant is a good pick. Bamboo is believed to bring good luck too. Bamboo thrives in both natural and artificial light, but ideally it should be kept away from windows. Plant your bamboo in a container with about two inches of rocks or marbles and fill it with water. Be sure to change the water out weekly to prevent bacteria growth.
