Green Your Office Space

 Think green in your office area.  I love the look, the smell and freshness of plants in my home and office.  Do you have a plant nearby? A study in the journal of HortScience found that employees who worked in an office with plants were more satisfied with their jobs, than those in less green spaces. Here are three low-maintenance varieties to add to your office!

  • Sansevieria (a.k.a “snake plant”) – These are super-duper air filters and they grow under fluorescent lights at the office.

 These plants are great for making your breathing space cleaner and healthier.  So, you can take your relaxing, deep yoga breaths throughout the day to stress less and freshen your lungs!

  • Zamioculcas Zamiifolia (a.k.a ZZ plant) – You only need to water this plant every two weeks and it will grow in an office.

If you don’t have a “green thumb” – this plant is for you!  Are you a person who always forgets to water your plants?  And then, the next thing you know… it’s life-less?   This one only needs to be watered every two weeks.  So, set an appointment on your calendar to water your plant.

  • Neanthe Bella Palm  – This is one of the best palms for growing in low light and they are like a typical indoor palm but are small enough for your desk.

What do you think?   Do you have another plant suggestion for the office space?

Go ahead and GREEN your space!
