Did you know indoor plants have the ability to purify the air within your office and home? According to a study completed by NASA, research suggests having two plants per 100 square feet to help minimize the effects of poor air quality in your office space. From minimizing cancer-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and reducing airborne pollutants such as formaldehyde and benzene which are commonly found in office furnishings, paint and outdoor pollution circulating through HVAC systems.
Here are 5 easy-to-care-for plants that will not only brighten your employees’ moods but will help purify the air in your office!
Boston ferns appreciate bright, indirect sunlight away from windows or drafty spaces. They make a wonderful hanging plant, too!
Easy to grow and maintain, the English ivy prefers a few hours of direct sunlight each day and a cool environment – perfect for chilly offices. We’ve seen some office spaces create entire green walls using English ivy!
Not only can this plant survive (and even thrive) in low-light spaces, it can go weeks without watering and prefers as little maintenance as possible. It’s one of the best plants for filtering the air of common chemical pollutants and releasing oxygen!
Hearty, hard-to-kill Dracaena plants do well in bright or lower-light spaces, with very little watering required. We love Madacascar Dragontrees (pictured above) with dark green and maroon leaves, or corn plant dracaenas.
Low maintenance succulents such as aloe are the perfect desk plant! They’re sensitive to temperature fluctuations and are best suited for warmer, brighter desks and space away from chilly drafts from air conditioning vents.
