How to Choose the Perfect Office Plants

Having plants in your office or booth can be a great way to brighten up the area and make it more cozy and cheerful. However, not all plants grow well in an office environment. Plants vary greatly in their tolerance to light levels, temperature, and humidity requirements. Since you rarely control the environment in your office, you should choose indoor plants  that work well together. With careful selection, your office factory will not only survive, it will thrive!

Houseplants, like all houseplants, need light. It varies by type, but a good rule of thumb is to choose plants with large leaves. Plants with larger leaves tend to need less light because they have more leaf area to absorb the available light.

Since the air in the office is often dry, try choosing plants that don't need a very humid environment. Since misting may not be easy to apply in an office environment, try to avoid plants that have these requirements. Choose plants that are long-lived and easy to care for, as most people don't have much time to care for demanding office plants. Office plants that can do without frequent watering are good for preventing them from drying out and dying during the holidays, long weekends or holidays.

The "order" of the plants should also be considered when choosing the best office plants. If the plant sheds flowers or leaves frequently, it may not be a good choice for the office. In fact, flowering plants should probably be avoided altogether, as some of your colleagues may have allergies or reactions to certain types of flowers and scents.
