Plants In The Workplace

Still working from home or recently transitioned back to your office? Regardless of where you’re sending emails, if you have an office setting, we can help you with some of the best office plants to spruce up your workspace. We’ll make sure to include the easy ones that won’t require too much maintenance because no one needs any extra stressors added to their workday.

Plants are a great addition to any workspace - They’re known to reduce stress, increase productivity, and help purify the air. They add color and warmth to every space and it’s important to create a comfortable place to work in, especially since most of us spend 8+ hours a day in our office.

Things to consider when adding a plant to your workspace: lighting, how often they’ll be cared for and watered for, and what will fit in your space. Below we’ve compiled a list of plants that will work great in a variety of different office settings.
