Monstera deliciosa

This product was recommended by Sarah Macklin from Dream of Home

A home office tends to be a place you go Monday to Friday, but leave the door closed at a weekend. They can sometimes be low-light rooms too. Therefore you’ll need a plant that is quite hardy, low maintenance and doesn’t need a lot of light. The Monstera (or Swiss Cheese plant) is perfect for any home office. Not only is it one of the trendiest plants you can own at the moment, but they’re easy to care for and can purify the air in the room too, increasing your oxygen intake and productivity.

This plant is good for areas along corridors or tableside, they require a bit more attention and maintenance at first in order to bloom. They are known to take much of your time, but once it blooms, it will be worth it and they would only require very little care. They don’t really require much fertilizer, just water and someone to look at them once in a while is enough.

Bamboo Palm

This plant is known for its air-purifying properties, they are best to be placed in shady and indoor spaces. It’s best for having a natural ambiance while inside your house or windowless office. If you’re lucky, you may have a bonus of blooms and berries. Allow its tropical beauty to take you away from the stresses of work and transport you to another world.

If your workplace is airconditioned, the humidity-loving plant would be a big no for you. Instead, you can look for something that can strive with little moisture. The succulent is the best for you in this situation. Stylish and compact, they’re ideal for smaller workspaces, and if they can survive the desert, they can survive your air-con placed unit.

Spathiphyllum as know as ‘Peace Lily’ is not only beautiful, it is also good for your health. It is on NASA air purifying plants list.

Boston Fern

This product was recommended by Meghan Tocci from We Are Simply Sustainable

A study at The Royal College of Agriculture in Cirencester, England found that students demonstrate 70% greater attentiveness when they’re taught in rooms with plants. These same outcomes can also be attributed to those looking to focus better in their office. It’s believed that the satisfaction that comes with caring for a plant can free your mind to focus on the tasks at hand. A plant like a Boston Fern can handle a lot of watering, which makes it a great office plant as they tend to be overwatered often. They’ll also be able to handle the weekends without watering if they’re placed in indirect sunlight

Aloe Vera

This product was recommended by Melanie Musson from FindNewCarInsurance

Aloe Vera is a plant everyone should grow. It’s easy to maintain. It doesn’t like much sunlight, so it thrives in a home office on the desk or on a shelf. It’s practical, too, as it can be used to treat burns. Any time you get burnt, whether from the sun or something too hot, you can break off a leaf of aloe and use the juice inside to treat it.

Juniper Bonsai

This product was recommended by Adrienne from Hubbard Family Travels

I have always thought that plants always brighten up any room and I would like to suggest “Zen Reflections Juniper Bonsai” because it is very easy to take care of, it adapts to almost all conditions and the juniper bonsai is known to symbolize peace, good luck and harmony, which is exactly the kind of energy I will be needing in my home office, I like also that it doesn’t take much space and the fact that it goes with anything regardless of what your office décor is.

Fittonia is an excellent home office plant because it thrives in fluorescent lights plus the large leaves can be a focal point inside the room.

Jade Plant

This product was recommended by Peter Miller from GardeningStuffs

If you have a sunny windowsill, go for a jade plant. It’s a gorgeous plant that is capable of surviving most environments and it is also known to symbolize good luck and prosperity. Plus, caring for this plant is not that tedious either. You only need to water when the top of the soil is dry to the touch and while they do prefer bathing in the glorious sunshine, they can still survive in a shaded area as long as you can place them out under a full sun at least once a week.

Peace Lily

This product was recommended by Peter Miller from GardeningStuffs

If your office does not get much sunlight, go for a peace lily plant as it’s capable of thriving on just fluorescent lighting and low to medium sunlight. It also requires little maintenance making it a perfect plant for busy working individuals. Peace lilies not only add beauty to a room but it has also been recognized as a great air-purifying plant and not to mention this plant is said to balance people’s energy and give peace and tranquillity as well.
