Plants have the ability to enhance the appearance of your office, and can also improve health and productivity. However, choosing the right plants isn't easy as there are a lot of details to consider.

Space
Just like humans, plants need plenty of space to thrive. Good airflow is especially essential for a healthy, long-living plant with strong stems. It allows them to maintain better temperature control, replenish CO2, reduce humidity, and resist certain diseases. This is why it is important to place your plants in areas with good circulation, like on top of desks, in front of windows or near hallways.

Size
When considering what size plant you would like, it is important to keep in mind where the plant will go. Typically, floor plants should be taller and any plants that sit on top of a desk or table should be shorter. The size of the items surrounding the plant should be thought about as well. For example, a small plant on top of a giant table wouldn’t look right.

Lighting
Your plant’s health will suffer if they are not getting appropriate light levels. Small details, such as the way your plant is facing, can make a big impact on what kind of lighting your plant is receiving. Whether you are looking for high-light plants that require sunlight most of the day or plants that can survive from mostly fluorescent light, John Mini has plenty of options available to you.

Maintenance
Because plants are so sensitive, plant care is a huge factor that should be thought about before adding any plants into your office. Giving your plants too much or not enough water can be detrimental. Other maintenance issues include fertilizing, trimming and clipping your plants.

Longevity
Don’t forget to consider how long you want your plants to last. If you like to change plants and change the look of your office more frequently, then you will have a variety of options. If you are looking for something more long term, your options will be more limited.

With so many options to consider, choosing office plants is no simple task. At John Mini Distinctive Landscapes, our team of expert designers will take away the burden of finding the right plants for your space. Give us a call today to see what we can do for you!
