Not only do plants filter the air that we breathe, they also lower our stress levels. Seeing natural plant life within an office is known to reduce anxiety and increase productivity. Not every office comes with a view of the great outdoors, so you must create your own green view. However, not every potted plant is ideal for an office setting. Some plants must have copious amounts of natural sunlight to thrive, and others must be grown under specific temperature criteria. eSuites, an office rental company in West Palm Beach, encourages our clients to bring plants into the office for a splash of greenery throughout the building.
Top Plants to Grow in an Office Setting
The best plants to grow indoors require little to no direct sunlight. These are the top 3 plants to grow on your office desk:
- Snake Plant
The snake plant does not need much sunlight or water to thrive. This plant is virtually impossible to kill, making it great for those without a green thumb. The snake plant only needs to be watered every 2 – 3 weeks and will not grow very large.
- Aloe Vera
The aloe vera plant is both hardy and functional. Once the leaves on your aloe vera plant reach maturity, you can use them to treat mild burns. The aloe vera plant only needs to be watered every 2 – 3 weeks and does not need direct sunlight to thrive.
- Peace Lilly
The peace lily is a beautiful plant that helps to purify the air around it. The peace lily requires more maintenance than the snake plant or the aloe vera. The soil in a peace lily should be kept moist, so it needs to be watered once per week. It will also need to live in a well-lit area to put out any blooms.
There are no restrictions at eSuites regarding office desk plants. We offer both co-working spaces and private office rentals at our eSuites location. Although co-working spaces are more difficult to decorate given their short-term rental status, there is no problem with brightening up your desk with a potted plant.
