Plants in the office create extra atmosphere in your office space. But did you know that they also add value to your health? Plants have an air-purifying effect and provide up to 5-15% more humidity in the room. In addition, your productivity may get a boost. We have selected five plants in a row that are suitable for office spaces:
1. The Areca palm (Golden cane palm)
This popular plant finds its origin in Madagascar. The palm is strong in the production of oxygen. They filter harmful substances and are also very easy to maintain. Do not place the gold palm in direct sunlight, because then there is a good chance that it will turn brown in the long run. Make sure that the root ball remains moist, by watering the plant about once or twice a week.
2. Ficus Robusta (Rubber plant)
This plant finds its origin in Africa and parts of Asia. The plant is very easy to maintain. This is because it doesn’t need much water and also little light. The hip looking plant provides a good purification of the air in your office space.
3. Dracaena Janet Craig
The origin of this plant lies in West Africa and is related to the Agave plant. This plant purifies the air of dirty substances that are created by the floor covering and dust that forms on printers. The Dracaena Janet Craig purifies the air better than the average plant.
4. Chlorophytum comosum (spider plant)
The Chlorophytum can be found in the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and Asia. This is a plant that ensures that poisonous gases do not remain in the air, but are absorbed and broken down. It is also said that these plants reduce asthmatic complaints.
5. Aloe Vera plant
This popular Aloe Vera plant was first discovered in the Middle East. Besides the fact that the Aloe Vera plant is included in many beauty products such as aftersun, in which they have a cooling effect, this plant is extremely suitable as an office plant. The plant is one of the easiest to care within the category of plants that already require little care. Aloe Vera helps to purify the air from chemicals. If you see brown spots on the leaves of this plant, this means that the air is heavily polluted.
