These plants are surprisingly easy to care for, so whether you’re a first time plant parent or a natural born green thumb they will definitely give your workplace that extra boost of life it's been lacking.
The Pothos plant is our top
recommendation for first time
Lovingly nicknamed the cubicle plant
because it can thrive in almost any environment, the easy-care Pothos and
its quick growing vines will make any
space look more lush.
2. Snake Plant
Also known as Sansevieria or the mother-in-law’s tongue, the Snake plant is one of the toughest of the house plants and it doesn't need much watering so it will probably outlive that annoying coworker you’ve been avoiding.
But make sure to check the label because there are Snake Plants that can grow to be a few feet tall, so if you’re looking for a smaller plant for your desk make sure to grab a dwarf version of this beauty like the ‘Futura Superba’ or ‘Whitney’.
3. ZZ Plant
Fun fact about the ZZ plant, or Zamioculus Zamifolia, it's actually a succulent. In recent years this durable houseplant has risen to the top of people’s favorite plant list for many reasons but the top two are its ability to grow in low light and with very little water.
This is a very aesthetically pleasing plant to have in the office, from its beautiful lattered leaves to its bold coloring, definitely a crowd favorite.
The philodendron snags a spot in our top 5 office plants because not only is it beautiful, but is one of the easiest plants to grow indoors.
They can live anywhere from a fully lit room to a dark cubicle and are guaranteed to brighten up either. It does however require regular moisture to keep its lush look, so a self-watering pot will be a lifesaver for those offices without a designated plant caregiver.
If you are looking to turn your office into your very own secret garden, the English Ivy is the plant for you.
It stays green year round and can survive in low light. It's also a natural climber and can crawl and trail for up to ten feet. It's easy to care for, too, so with minimal effort, you can get those country manor vibes.
And there you have it, 5 beautiful plants that are sure to spruce up your workspace, and breathe new life into your work week.
