Plant Tips and Tricks

Improve your Wintertime air quality.

Indoor air quality in the Winter can be more toxic because the windows and doors are kept closed during the day. Adding plants to your workspace is an effective and relatively cheap way to improve the air quality and bring more energy to the office.

Take preventative measures to protect your plant

Setting up traps is a great step to take in an effort to minimize pests on your office plants. It, of course, is not a fool proof plan, but it certainly is a good start. Yellow sticky traps help to catch flying pests, like white flies, and fungus gnats. You can buy them, or simply make your own by cutting bright yellow cardboard, and covering them in a sticky material.

Know Your Decor

Contemporary, modern styles go better with plants that have clean lines and slender shapes to them. Victorian decors work well with ferns, while cacti are perfect for southwest styles.

Easily Preventable Plant Death

The number one cause of plant death is over watering. Plants require a delicate balance of air, water, and light to survive, and waterlogged soil drives out all of the air and suffocates the plant.
