Top 5 Plants for the Home Office

Top 5 Plants for the Home Office

Find our top 5 plants for the home office to make your room the ideal place to be motivated, productive, and efficient. Houseplants bring so much to a room, not just aesthetically but also as they clear the air of common toxins and give you something to feel responsible for as you nurture it, so your plant thrives. There are many to choose from, but specifically for the home office, here are our top picks. 

1. Sansevieria (Snake plant/Mother in law's tongue)

The Sansevieria was used in NASA's first experiment to see if plants cleared toxins from the air. It turned out they do! Sansevieria is one of the best at doing so and not only does it work day and night, it is one of the easiest of all houseplants to look after. Needing little water, little light, and generally pest-free, it looks stunning in a pot on its own or grouped together for a special architectural look. 

2. Monstera (Swiss cheese plant) 

Your office will be seriously on-trend with a Monstera in the corner. Bright, indirect light and water when the soil is dry, your Monstera will definitely get some comments when you are on your next Zoom call! Popular in the 1970s, this stunning plant has made a big comeback with its big glossy green leaves and easy to care for style. 

3. Zamioculcas (ZZ plant) 

With upright stems and foliage that provides a zigzag effect, this is another easy to care for and quick-growing houseplant that tolerates many conditions including a shady corner. Its glossy green foliage is interesting and great to look at. Stand it on the corner of your desk and it water when the soil is dry. 

4. Spathiphyllum (Peace lily) 

When you need some peace from your work, take a look at the peace lily in a medium-light position. The white pretty bract cups the yellow flowers and only needs to be watered when the soil is dry. As you admire your peace lily, know it is cleaning the air of toxins as well as making your room look pretty. 

5. Cacti (any type)

When the going gets tough at work, and you are feeling prickly, taking a look at a Cactus sitting on your desk will make you feel you are not alone! There are many different types available to suit your mood and personality. Plus, they need barely any water, just some bright light and well-drained soil. 

We have a range of houseplants in store, and our team is here to give you advice on which to choose.
