It might sound like an amazing idea to decorate your cubicle with little shrubs to liven up your workspace. However, plants in the office space don’t just make a great addition to the décor, but also purify the air. They enhance the air quality, have a visually meditative effect, and lead to a happier and more productive personnel.
If you’re thinking of adding a bunch of indoor plants to your office space, start with the following five:
1. Spider plant
Low-maintenance, capable of thriving in partial light and shade, and easy to propagate, the spider plant is easily one of the most common indoor plants for any office. According to experts, this plant removes volatile organic chemicals and compounds from the air, thereby, purifying the air you breathe. Moreover, it can easily go 1-2 days without water, and so, you don’t have to worry about constantly watering or adjusting it for adequate light exposure.
2. Cactus plant
We all know why cactus thrives in deserts – it’s because it requires very little water to grow. From tiny cup-sized shrubs to larger-than-life plants, there are over 2,000 different types of cactus in the world. Place a cactus pot near a window with adequate sunlight, and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous addition to the workspace without worrying about regular maintenance.
3. Aloe plant
With its lush green appearance and the ability to produce the ever-so-beneficial aloe vera gel, the aloe plant is a must-have in any office. Easy to care for, the aloe plant efficiently purifies the air you breathe by removing chemicals like formaldehyde and benzene, and survives all year round.
4. Money plant
We’ve all heard of the saying; “the bigger the money plant leaves, the more money in the house”. While this saying may be stuff of the legend, there are other important benefits that the money plant (also known as Pothos) has. Whether on the windowsill, stairs, or the walkway, money plant is one of the most popular office plants in the world.
It requires almost no sunlight to grow, and yet, it grows extremely quickly. Money plant is known to attract wealth and prosperity, which is why, it’s an important plant in Feng Shui.
5. Rubber plant
Only requiring partial light, the rubber plant looks great alongside window curtains. This dark green beauty has large leaves that are capable of absorbing airborne chemicals and break them down. What’s more, they effortlessly take in exhaled carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen that’s breathable. In ideal conditions, rubber plants can reach as tall as 8 feet, and so, make sure to place them where there is enough space for them to grow.
