Science-Backed Benefits of Office Plants


When choosing a plant for your workspace, make sure it’s suitable for the area — you don’t want a high-maintenance plant, one that grows too quickly or anything that needs a lot of natural light.

The first step to choosing the perfect plant is to determine light levels and space. If your office is windowless or you rely on fluorescent lights, you won’t want a plant that requires a lot of sun. You also have to consider how much space you have available for the plant, and how much care you are willing to provide.
