5 Excellent Office Plants that Improve Air Quality


 
Feng Shui,Gardening,Health
Whenever an interior designer wants to liven up a room, decorating with living things is one of the best ways to do it. Plants are typically the first decorative choices to accessorize an office because they bring a certain sense of vitality to an otherwise industrial look. However, what some interior designers may not realize is that desk plants are actually extremely healthy for office environments too! Cities are full of terrible pollutants that can take a toll on health, and plants provide beautiful air purifiers. If you're looking to liven up your office space, and feel a little healthier as well, here's five great plants for the home and office that may have you breathing a little easier!

Spider Plant

Spider plants are great for office environments in particular because they bring tons of life to a room with very little care. This plant does well in hanging baskets or pots with lots of rich soil, and can survive infrequent waterings. It prefers bright sunlight, but can thrive well under artificial lighting for office workspaces too. Reseachers at the University of Hawaii performed studies on this little beauty that proved it as a great plant for cities. They found that spider plants are one of the top leafy greens for removing harmful VOCs from the air indoors. As a result, people around this plant breathe easier and have less toxins in their system to impair cognitive function. And best of all, they feel better. For all these reasons and more, it is the perfect plant for those that work high in the skyscrapers!

Peace Lily

If you want a plant that looks just as beautiful as the rest of your office, say hello to the gorgeous peace lily! This pretty plant looks best sitting on the corners of great corner desks for office use while it's young, and looks just as elegant in a corner of it's own as it grows bigger. Studies by the University of Minnesota, Penn State, a University of Technology in Taiwan, and even NASA and the U.S. military have all produced results that have proven the peace lily's extraordinary air cleansing abilities. Like the spider plant, it is adept at removing harmful VOCs from the air. It does well in nutrient rich potting soil with loose dirt and plenty of drainage. For those that want frequent flowerings, this plant requires a bit more waterings for those that can handle the task!

Lemon Balm

Stuck in an office that's prone to mold or other smelly smells? Then the lemon balm is the desk plant for you! This aromatic plant provides all the air cleansing qualities you would want and even puts off a wonderful perfume all it's own. As you may have guessed, the lemon balm smells a lot like lemons, and studies have shown that it is great for improving mood. They do wonderful in office environments that don't get a whole lot of sunlight, making them ideal accents in stylish cubicles for office environments. Just plant this lovely little shrub in a size appropriate pot and water it frequently for an aromatic office that everyone within a whiff of will surely appreciate.

Golden Pothos

In another NASA study, the golden pothos proved to be a top air cleanser alongside the peace lily. This pretty little plant boasts adorable heart-shaped leaves that compliment modern executive desks for home office use with ease! Hardworking moms and dads are sure to love it, and they make great gifts for holidays. They thrive beautifully in low-light environments, making them perfect for both home and corporate office environments. They actually prefer slightly dry soil and being a little bit root bound, so don't worry too much about proper care. All they ask is a an appropriately sized pot or hanging basket, and they're ready to get to work cleaning your office air!

Gardenia

A grandmother's favorite for a reason, gardenias are perfect for gardens and offices alike. According to research from Rugers, this beautiful little plant makes an excellent air cleaner and actually improves your mood as well. Just a few whiffs of its wonderful scent will have you swooning. Its classic look and brain stimulating qualities make it the perfect plant to sit on the edge of pretty glass desks for computer use in either home or public office environments. With moderate sunlight and a bit of fair care, your gardenia may even last your whole career as they can live for up to twenty-five years!
