Plant Tips and Tricks

The easy orchid

The orchid is one of the easiest plants to maintain in an indoor space. Medium light is best with Eastern or Northern exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office.

Set your plant budget

Plant prices are across the board. It is important to discuss a budget within your office, and decide how much you plan to spend, and compare that to the amount of plants your plan on purchasing. Plan your purchasing around the level of maintenance you will be able to give to the plant.

Be Kind to Your Neighbor

Consider your coworkers. One man's favorite flower is another man's enemy, so take the allergies and sensitivities of your coworkers and clients into consideration. Gardenias, for example, have a lovely smell but cause many people to develop headaches

Identifying the Greenhouse Whitefly

The Greenhouse Whitefly is most commonly seen as an adult, but detecting them at a young stage can go a long way towards saving your plant. They are commonly found on plants such as poinsettias, ivy, hibiscus, and lantana. Plant safe pesticides are very effective in removing white flies, but simply vacuuming them is also a good solution.
