3 Best Plants for the Office
When windows are closed and heat is blasting, office air can get more than a little bit stale. That, combined with the year-round exposure to dust and low-quality air in the office can lead to increased stress levels, dry skin, and even illness. To freshen things up, consider incorporating some of these office-tested plants for your business:
For Something Beautiful and Hearty: Peace Lily
Not only is the peace lily an air filter that’s pleasantly fragrant, it’s also beautiful! This lovely plant is an all-star when it comes to ridding the air of pollutants and harmful solvents. It’s a naturally healthy plant that is easy to care for, as it requires very little watering and does well without direct access to sunlight – perfect conditions for the office.
This exotic plant is a natural filter that can greatly reduce an office’s air pollution. It comes in a variety of colors and can grow big or stay small. The waxy leaves of the Dracaena require a little bit of maintenance to really do their job – simply wipe down both sides of the leaves about once a week for maximum filtration. This plant is especially well suited for the office rather than the home, as the leaves can be dangerous for animals.
For Something Colorful and Affordable: Garden Mum
The garden mum is a common flower with a variety of uncommon benefits. Potted mums can remove a variety of carpet- and upholstery-borne toxins, including formaldehyde, ammonia, and benzene. Additionally, they are colorful, affordable, and available in most parts of the country.
