3 of the Best Plants for Your Office

Adding a touch of greenery has a plethora of benefits, from improving your health, boosting productivity to purifying the air. But, if you’re stuck in a windowless, suffocating office that lacks watering schedules, then your plant’s life is most likely to come to an early end.

Which makes the job of picking the perfect office plant that much more challenging.

Like humans, food is key to ensuring the survival (and happy life) of plants. Light and water are necessary for plants nourishment, and like humans – different plants need different levels of this nourishment. So if you want all the beautiful benefits of having a plant in the office, but would like to avoid getting stuck with a sad plant cemetery on your desk – then read on! We’ve listed our top air-cleaning, mood-boosting plant varieties that even the most unlivable office won’t be able to kill.

1. Potted Paradise  

If your desk enjoys regular sunlight through the day, you’ll want to select a plant that is able to handle a hot and dry environment. Our pick for this desk is Cacti, Succulents, and Phalaenopsis Orchids – low maintenance varieties that like it hot and elevate your office space with a touch of fresh greenery.

VAULT INSIDER TIP – cacti tie in nicely with bohemian and nordic looks – pair with animal skins throws or rugs or handicraft type wooden furniture for a very on trend ‘Vikings’ inspired design!

2. The ‘Broken Airconditioner’ Withstander 

We’re all familiar with the troublesome aircon – one minute your teeth are chattering, the next you can’t stop the pesky sweat moustache from appearing. For such a volatile, inconsistent environment, the mighty Spider Plant is your hero. As an added bonus, spider plants carry loads of benefits for improving indoor air quality and reducing stress at work, as noted by researchers from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. It’s cited as being one of the best plants for air purification- which can have a relaxing effect on workers equating to a happier office!  (Thank us later).

3. Fern – tastic 

If you’re residing in a low light office, then Ferns are your humble hero to brighten up an otherwise stifling environment. They naturally grow on forest floors where light is limited, so they’re perfect for those windowless cubicles. They also come in various sizes, so you can hang them or position them on the floor – either way, ferns will add vibrancy and provide air detoxification benefits… winning!
