Research consistently shows that adding plants to the workplace reduces stress and increases productivity. It has been established that adding plants to the workplace increases productivity by 15% and reduces employee absenteeism by 10%. It is therefore a fable that office plants do not contribute to our productivity; on the contrary: they are very good for our productivity and health.
Which plants increase productivity?
If we want to furnish our office space, we have to think carefully about which plants we choose in order to achieve higher productivity. It is of course important that they are easy to care for, as you want to keep all your focus on your business. Outdoor plants or plants that are difficult to care for are therefore not recommended.
Popular office plant: Dracaena Janet Craig
One of the most common and popular office plants is the Dracaena Janet Craig. This is very easy to care for and only needs a little water to grow well in both dark and light areas. This plant is air-purifying and ensures that dust has much less chance.
Real air purifiers: the Bamboo palm and Sanseveria
The bamboo palm is a real air purifier and pumps the necessary moisture into the air of your office. The plant likes a bit of sunlight, but it also does well in the shade. The plant does need some moist potting soil.
The Sanseveria is very easy to care for and does well in the office anywhere. This plant, which was very popular in the 70’s and is now becoming more and more hipper, provides good air purification and humidity and this improves your living environment, automatically creating more productivity.
