You can’t go wrong with these plants. They are our most common office plant and for good reason. They acclimate pretty well and can handle a range of different lighting as well as tolerate some neglect. Probably one of the toughest plants out there!
Prefers low light—windowless room with fluorescents, or in a corner far from a window. These are a great choice for rooms without windows but with some fluorescent light.
Prefers very low water—a good drink once a month is all it needs
Resistant to most pests, except mealybug, which will show up if the room that it’s in is very dry
ZZ plants are among one of the easiest plants to care for along with snake plants and pothos. Although some claim it’s indestructible, it’s still quite possible to kill it by giving it too much attention
ZZ’s prefer bright, indirect light but will tolerate lower light settings. Water them only when the soil is dry. Their succulent stems and thick leaves allow ZZ’s to store water for very long periods of time–larger floor plants can easily go a month or more without water. A well draining soil is needed to prevent root rot
Pretty good for not being in the jungle, right? We try to accommodate plants as closely to their natural habitat as possible but for the most part, the plant is resilient and acclimates to it’s new environment (as long as it’s not super hot or super cold). Though it lacks humidity, this Xanadu is still living it up in this lobby
With rising summer temperatures, remember to keep an eye on your plants, indoor and outdoor, for any heat stress. Look out for scorched or droopy leaves and bring some plants in or move them to shady areas if necessary. Also note that the soil on indoor plants will dry up quicker than usual because of air conditioning so water accordingly!
Look how great these arboricolas look in their new home! This area gets a good amount of light throughout the day so these shefflera arboricola trees should thrive nicely. We hope you have a very zen Monday!
Snake Plants: Probably the easiest plant to care for but it’s still very possible to kill it by over loving it!
So, here are some tips to avoid that:
1. Snake plants will tolerate low light but they only thrive if you give them bright indirect light. 2. Water only when very dry. Their thick leaves conserve water so you want to water every 2 – 3 weeks. 3. Their soil should be well draining to help against over watering. We recommend regular potting soil mixed with plenty of perlite (or pumice) and orchid bark.
This fellow here is a prickly pear cactus or opuntia meaning “prickly” in Latin. Pretty fitting name right? They are native in North and South America where they can grow up to 16 feet in height! Some members of this genus can even produce edible fruit and when prepared properly, have been described to taste like bubblegum! This happy little guy fills a window in an office in Burlington, MA.
