Whether you work at the top of a skyscraper or you live in a small apartment, a great way to create a healthier environment is with plants – they will improve air quality, mood, and productivity. Try adding one to your living room or office space for a little dose of zen!
1. Heart-Leaf Philodendron
Philodendron is a low-maintenance plant that will surely add the spark you need on your office desk.
You can consider buying a self-watering pot so you can be sure your plant will stay lush and healthy.
Orchids have a charm that sets them apart from most other flowers.
An orchid will be the perfect addition to your bathroom – a warm, steamy atmosphere is exactly what this plant needs!
3. Jade Plant
The Jade plant, or Crassula ovata, is a succulent plant that will stay small and will look gorgeous on your desk or your windowsill.
This plant is a great choice for beginners and forgetful plant parents since it requires minimal watering.
4. ZZ Plant
The ZZ Plant, or Zamioculas zamiifolia, is one of the most low-maintenance plants you can find.
It can tolerate low light and grow with little water, and its glossy leaves will add a tropical feel to your office setting.
5. Spider Plant
The Spider plant is wonderfully easy to grow indoors.
Also known as Chlorophytum comosum, it's often displayed in hanging baskets and can create some visual interest in your office space or living room.
Air plants don't need soil, and they stay small. This means you can place them basically everywhere!
Have fun placing them around your desk: they will spice up your office routine!
7. Aloe Vera
Aloe is easy to grow, as long as you give it lots of bright light.
If your desk is near a sunny window, place it there and forget about it – your plant will only need watering every couple of weeks.
8. African Violet
African violet thrives in the same conditions as we do, with average humidity and temperatures.
If you are running low on space, you can choose the miniature variety: even the smallest desk can accommodate a flowering mini violet!
9. Oxalis Triangularis
Oxalis are fun houseplants that will add a splash of color to your home or office thanks to their shamrock shades.
These plants do well in low humidity but need bright light for best color.
10. Lucky Bamboo
Lucky Bamboo is the perfect office plant.
It requires little light only and can grow without soil, by submerging the stems in water.
