Plant Tips and Tricks

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.

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

Do the research before you purchase plants.

It is important to remember that plants are living things, not just art that hangs on a wall or sits in a lobby. Do some research before you purchase a plant. Take time to examine our plant reference guide and decide which plant is best for your office. Think long term, that umbrella tree will fit great on your desk today, but what about when it’s full grown?
