Bring some plants into your work space.
So you want to “green-up” your work space, but don’t know where to start. Do you have a black thumb, are you new to indoor plants, do you need to clean up the air? Do you have a few you are lusting over? Here at Jack’s we are pretty big plant geeks, so of course we have quite the collection of fiddle leaf figs, jade and other indoor plants. Currently, we have an empty space and are hunting for the perfect upright Philodendron to put there. Below is a list of some of our favorites that are easy to grow, good for work spaces and even clean the air.
What’s on our list???
Philodendron- These plants come in vine and upright varieties. They clean the air, live in a wide variety of conditions and even take some neglect.
ZZ plants– The ZZ plant maybe the best plant for offices, it can thrive under florescent lights, only needs water every 2 weeks or so, and are probably the easiest plants to grow.
Snake Plants– One of the best plant it and forget it options. Snake plants are known for their resilience for even the blackest of thumbs, live forever, and purify the air. They can also tolerate low light conditions quite well.
Peace Lily– Peace lilies tend to be quite tolerant of light conditions, clean the air, grow fairly fast, and even bloom.
Dracaena– Another great indoor plant that tolerates a variety of lighting conditions, needs to be watered once a week and looks great when paired with other plants
Spider Plants– The quintessential office plant that looks great top a filing cabinet or in a hanging planter. They clean air, and tend to have lots of babies.
Pothos– A great beginner plant. It comes in multiple colors and variegations can tolerate low levels of light but does best with medium light levels.
Schefflera– This easy to grow plant does best in high light conditions. It tolerates dry soil conditions, and excellent job at filtering the air.
With all plants, your indoor plants will be most happy if you feed them once every 2 weeks with Jack’s Houseplant Special 15-30-15.
