Reinvigorate your Office with Indoor Plants
Our desire to make the spaces we inhabit extends further than our homes; we are also focussing on making our workspaces warm and welcoming with office indoor plants. Perhaps not a sanctuary as such but certainly we would like our workplace to be inviting and inspire productivity, creativity and calm. Sounds pretty good for a workplace right? If you’d like to achieve this in your office, then keep reading, here at The Little Botanical, we can help you.
The Benefits of Office Houseplants
Incorporating indoor plants into your office is a fab way to enhance your space; they have so many awesome qualities that will do wonders for productivity and creativity.
Indoor plants are proven air purifiers; they absorb carbon dioxide from and release oxygen into the air we breathe through the natural process of photosynthesis. Some green beauties even remove harmful toxins such as benzene, toluene and formaldehyde. All this purified, de-toxified air makes for a much-improved workplace; a workplace with less stress and more productivity. A place where we feel less tired, have fewer allergy symptoms and recover more quickly from colds. Sounds like the perfect way to reinvigorate your office for the new year!
So, what are you waiting for? Why not breathe some natural life into your office space with a selection of green beauties from The Little Botanical?

Office Indoor Plant Inspiration
If you’re looking for a little inspiration before contacting our concierge team or perhaps instead of contacting them, we’ve collated a list of some of our favourite picks for an office.
As a general rule, we would recommend choosing fairly low-maintenance plants for a workplace so that looking after them doesn’t get in the way of the day job. And sometimes, offices can be short on natural light so low-light-loving plants tend to do well in these spaces. Keep reading for our top recommendations.
Sansevierias top our list of best houseplants for an office. They look great, they’re super easy to care for and they’re brilliant air-purifiers too.
First up is the Sansevieria Snakey, a hard-leaved, tropical beauty, also known as a Snake Plant. His striking, upright leaves are beautiful to behold and he’ll purify the air too. These guys are tolerant of low light levels and only need water every few weeks, once the soil is dry to the touch. This makes them a perfect choice for a busy office.
A close relative of Snakey is our Sansevieria Spikey, who is equally as handsome and easy-going as his brother. With his tall, slim, upright leaves in deep green, he’ll bring fab texture and style to your office.
And not forgetting the baby of the family, our Sansevieria Punk. This small but mighty little guy is just perfect for adding some funky personality to shelves or windowsills. This crazy-looking beauty with his spray of narrow leaves is sure to raise a smile on even the most stressful of days! He is equally as easy to look after as his relatives and matches their air-purifying abilities too. There’s really nothing not to love about this wondrous plant family!
Next up on our list is the Desk Buddy Plant Gang. With a ‘desk buddy’ moniker it’s not very surprising that this trio makes a good choice for a workplace. This bundle sees the Sansevieria Punk alongside an easy-care Aloe and Mini Haworthia succulent. Pop them on the corner of a desk or along a windowsill for an instant pop of green style. Available in a choice of stylish, bespoke ceramics, there’s sure to be something to complement your office interior style perfectly.
Trailing plants can work brilliantly in an office as they can be positioned up high and allowed to cascade down, providing an eye-catching décor option that adds texture and interest without getting in the way. Our favourite trailing plants for an office are the Peperomia Rotundifolia and the Devil’s Ivy. Available in a choice of pots, both of these trailing plants are easy-care and beautiful in equal measure.
A Zamioculcas, also known as a Zamio or ZZ Plant, should not be ignored as an option for an office. They are, of course, gorgeous to look at with their abundance of shiny green leaves and they are among the easiest of houseplants to care for. They are very tolerant of low light levels and fairly accepting of neglect! And as if that wasn’t enough, he is also available in our big houseplant range, making him a brilliantly versatile option for an office. Need we go on!
For a real statement piece in your office jungle, take a look at our Mobilane Living Art and Plantbox Indoor Living Wall. These are a great choice to really make an artistic feature out of your greenery in any office and work particularly well in smaller workplaces. We think they are a brilliant way to brighten up a bland meeting room or reception area.
And don’t forget that we now offer personalisation to several of our mini and medium ceramics. Add individual names, positive affirmations or even motivational words. Combining the mood-improving power of plants with thoughtful personalisation for staff is bound to give morale a new year boost!
We hope we’ve brought you plenty of inspiration and ideas for reinvigorating your office this January. And don’t forget, our concierge team is here to help make the process of finding plants for your office and workspaces as smooth and stress-free as possible.
