One easy solution to prevent “sick building syndrome” is INDOOR PLANTS that help to improve air quality, remove impurities and boost productivity. Studies have shown that offices with plants increase brain performance and encourage creativity. Plants reduce stress level: seeing greenery and nature help us feel more relaxed and calm, which in turn benefits your everyday mood.
Spider plant is #1 as the most popular office plant. It’s easy to grow and it stays as one of the top varieties for removing VOCs and other pollutants from indoor air.
Spider plants will appreciate at least some light from a window, but grow decently under indoor lighting, too. Spider plants grow well in air-conditioned offices, since they thrive in cool conditions, and display best when hung from the ceiling, which in turn saves precious desk or cubicle space. Hang your spider plant near a window or grow light, but don’t expose it to direct sunlight or it may scorch.
Jade, or Crassula ovata in Japanese folklore is known as the money plant. Legend has it that its presence brings financial success!
Jade do need 4 or more hours of sunlight each day; offices with a south-facing window are typically great spots with just enough light. Keep soil moist but not wet during active growth in the spring and summer. Allow soil to dry between waterings in the winter. Avoid splashing water on the leaves while watering.
