Plant Tips and Tricks

Large Leaf Plants

In general, plants with larger leaves need less exposure to sunlight since they have more surface area with which to absorb it. This is something important to consider when shopping for a plant inside your office. If sunlight is at a premium, then consider a plant that won’t need as much.

Thirsty Plants

Similar to us humans, plants require more water when they are in a higher temperature, or when the light is stronger where the plant is placed. It’s always important to remember that the same two plants might require different watering schedules, even if they’re only on opposites sides of the room.

Keep Your Office Plants Clean and Bug Free

If your office plants are dusty or you see a few bugs or gnats, try cleaning your plants with a mixture of 6 oz. of rubbing alcohol, 24 oz. of water and 4 drops of ivory soap. Don't use on African violets. Don't clean more than once per week. Don't apply in direct sunlight.

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.
