Now that you’ve unboxed the plant, it’s time to find a special spot to place it.

Time to style, accent existing décor and get inspired with plants. Change the way a room looks, transform it from bland to lively or create your own indoor jungle. The power of plants changes the mood and atmosphere of a room.

Create a Cozy & Comforting Environment in Your Home

When bringing houseplant(s) into your home, many considerations should be made ahead of time. Where should the plant be placed; will it have enough light? How tall should the plant be, or how wide? Which room would best accommodate the plant? Plants such as the Snake Plant, Aloe Vera or bamboo can create a lush bathroom space that is bright and cheery. Basil, cilantro, thyme and more herbs right in your kitchen windowsill, become easy to access when needed.

Bring the Feeling of Home to College

College can be tough at times with homesickness and stress; gifting a houseplant can make dorm life feel a little like home. Dorms and apartments are usually small, cramped and a little stuffy. A houseplant could purify the air and create a calming environment. It brings a great aesthetic for dorm rooms and apartments; cacti or succulents are low-maintenance plants that will survive even if it is sometimes forgotten. If these plants are placed in a well-lighted area they will thrive. Ferns are good natural humidifiers that can freshen a confined room. Other plants such as, the Snake Plant are very shapely and trendy, accenting the room and giving it a more modern feel.

Energize Your Workspace

Going into work and sitting in your office can be a bit stultifying at times. Adding style or a green touch into your office can improve productivity at work. Make work a more fun and comfortable environment, worth going to. Add some color into the office with the ZZ Plant. They are tolerant to low light and will grow even with little water. Bamboo is an easy to grow houseplant that doesn’t need much light, if the stems are submerged in water they can grow without soil.

No matter where you place your houseplant, it will change the room. Whether it may remove toxins from the air, add color to a bland room or bring your décor together, houseplants will always be a great addition.

ON TODAY’S AGENDA: ADDING A GORGEOUS PLANT TO YOUR OFFICE

Work can be so stressful. Perhaps your project list is packed, or deadlines loom large and you’re not sure you can get it all done.  While we can’t help with workload, we can help with improving your work space. Not only will a plant offer tranquil beauty to your office, they also bring a breath of fresh air (which could boost your productivity). Between work and home, average Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, where the amount of some pollutants can be two to five times higher than outside. Here are some top picks we know will “work” well at your office to add beauty and cleanse the air.

The Snake Plant is #1 on our list. There are many different varieties to choose from, including the popular Whale Fin or the Laurentii. The Snake Plant is incredibly low maintenance, and can thrive in a wide range of light conditions. It easily survives an irregular watering schedule, and excels as an effective air purifier.

The Money Tree could be a beautiful addition to your cubicle. Like the Snake Plant, the Money Tree is known for its ability to survive with minimal care and low light conditions. Many people believe the Money Tree brings good luck and fortune, which is why you’ll find it atop desks everywhere.

The Dracaena is our next suggestion. With its many colorful varieties, the Dracaena conjures up a tropical feel wherever you place it. The Dracaena is truly low maintenance, with high marks for air purification.

The Aloe Vera is a hardy choice, and thrives with very little care. Of course, its gel has been a used as a skin treatment for thousands of years. So, next time you get a paper cut, apply some to the wound for a speedy recovery.

The Peruvian Apple Cactus brings the feel of the desert to your office. You’ll find it to be a low maintenance gem that can grow to impressive heights and even produce flowers. It’s a new and notable choice for cacti lovers.

The Ponytail Palm is actually a succulent that stores water in its trunk. What that means for you is that it is relatively easy care. Its whimsical silhouette adds so much to an office scape.

After a challenging meeting, imagine walking back into your work space and pausing just a moment to appreciate the fresh, vital beauty of a plant. We think it’s a fabulous way to “dress” your office for success!
