Now with all those benefits, you see why so many people have plants in their office or around their workplace. Entrepreneurs should want to capitalize on those benefits as well. Those benefits provide a great recipe for a successful business.
However, different plants require different care, and some are better for the office than others.
This is the most commonly used plant, even having the nickname “the cubicle plant.” They are low maintenance and thrive on neglect and low lighting. This plant is easy to grow, can help to alleviate eye irritation caused by prolonged screen time, and filters out pollutants. They have an added bonus of only requiring weekly watering and can be hung.
2. Monstera Deliciosa:
This plant is big and beautiful. It draws attention and is called “the swiss cheese plant” because of the holes it has. Monstera Deliciosa is also low maintenance and doesn’t require to be watered often. It helps to purify the air and humidify air conditions.
This is an air plant, meaning that it doesn’t need soil. All you have to do is just spray it a few times a month. Also, because it doesn’t require soil, you can be creative and place in many different things like cups, bowls, or a globe. Bringing out your creativity can only help with your business and help you create ideas. It even comes in many different shapes and colors so you can coordinate it with your other décor.
4. Snake Plant:
This plant gets its name from the resemblance of a snake. It can live in almost any environment, making it super durable in case you are a plant newbie or don’t have a green thumb. It also is very low maintenance and only needs to be watered once a month. An additional cool thing about the snake plant is that it can convert carbon dioxide to oxygen overnight.
When it comes to air purification, the dracaena plant is one of the most effective. It removes chemicals like benzene, formaldehyde, carbon dioxide, and formaldehyde, which causes multiple health issues. It won’t be good if one of your employees gets sick or even yourself.
6. Peace Lily:
The lily plant is one of my favorites, and the peace lily is known to bring you peace, reduce stress, and promote restful sleep. This is a low maintenance plant and requires monthly watering. It also purifies the air and prevents the formation of mildew, which helps to prevent health issues.
7. Rubber Plant:
This beautiful plant is a great focal point and can be used as a conversation starter for clients. It uses its large leaves to be a magnet to toxins. It does well in natural light and can help to keep your space clean.

This plant has a nickname of “ZZ plant.” This is one of the toughest plants and can survive almost anything. This can thrive in low or high amounts of light and even neglect. The ZZ also removes toxins and purifies the air.
9. Bamboo Palm:
One thing you won’t have with this plant is spiders because it acts as a spider mite repellant. It also removes toxins and purifies the air. It brings a happy inviting feel to your workspace.
Known as the “Chinese Evergreen,” this plant assists in productivity by helping you focus and retain information. This plant is even said to bring luck. It also improves the air quality in your workspace by removing toxins and pollutants.
