When it comes to quality office plant care, here are the three key areas where office plant companies can differentiate themselves:
1. Because your office plants need regular pruning, dusting, turning and fertilizer.
In order for office plants to grow properly, they need regular pruning, dusting, rotating (frequently turning the plant away from its light source so that it grows normally) and fertilizer treatments.
It’s very easy to tell when certain office plants have not been getting anything else but the occasional splash of water. Long, leggy bare stalks; dusty leaves–plants all growing towards the light sources because they haven’t been rotated properly.
2. Because you need dependable plant service techs
Your plant technician needs to arrive consistently to care for the plants. We have a tremendous level of accountability and reliability–our plant techs all report into the office in the morning and use company vehicles to service our clients. We see each and every one of them on a daily basis, so we can keep them up to date on training, replacements, and other items of importance.
3. Because you’ll need regular, timely replacements as part of your office plant service plan
This is the biggest one of all.
Office plants come into New England from sunny Florida and Hawaii–they’re used to perfect sun, perfect humidity, and perfect temperature. They get placed in buildings and offices, and often, with the right care and fertilizer, they thrive.
Sometimes though, nature isn’t so kind, and they don’t make the transition well, or maybe aren’t getting enough light, or the airflow isn’t right. Regardless, those office plants should be replaced, because you’re paying to have those plants looking great at all times, and I can assure you we, unlike many of our competitors, will replace them when they need it. This is another thing I see all too often with other office plant companies. Old, spindly plants that haven’t been pruned, fertilized, or replaced in a decade of service. With close to 300 cubic feet of plants arriving on a monthly basis, we’ve always got replacements in stock, so you’ll never have to wait for a new office plants when you need it.
Office Plant companies that don’t adhere to these 3 crucial tenants that I’ve outlined above are practicing what we like to say in the industry as “Splashing and Dashing”; meaning they’re doing the very minimal in care in order to spend the least amount of time, effort, and expenditure in maintaining your office plants. This is just wrong. You pay us for a service, and you deserve to have your techs arrive consistently, care for your plants properly, and make replacements when they need to.
And I can assure you, when we take care of your plants, you’ll never be a victim of the Splash N’ Dash.
