5 EASY PLANTS TO SURROUND YOURSELF WITH (IN YOUR HOME or OFFICE)

If looking after plants isn’t your forte, the Swiss cheese plant is one for you. There’s a good chance you will be able to keep this plant alive, no matter how busy or forgetful you are. It only needs watering every two weeks or so, and they can live happily in pots or hanging planters. They're growing fast, too, so you need to make sure that you use a pot or planter with plenty of space. They’re also known to have good air cleaning properties.

2. SANSEVIERIA 

Also more commonly known as the snake plant. It will help filter toxins in the air, which makes it a great plant for the home office or anywhere in the house with little to no airflow. So, if you want the air in your office to be as clean as your desk, this is the plant to have. They thrive in dry and well-drained soil.

3. MAJESTY PALM (TRIANGLE PALMS)

Triangle Palms is known for being a wonderful table and countertop centerpiece, but it can also be great for your home office. It’s incredibly low maintenance and it thrives in low light to dark places. It tolerates warm and cool air, too. While Kentia Palms grow tall, they don’t grow outwards, making them a great space-saving option. 

4. EPIPREMNUM AUREUM (DEVIL’S IVY)

Epipremnum aureum is a type of evergreen vine with large heart-shaped leaves that come in a wide variety of light and dark colours. What’s great about it is how it can quickly adapt to a variety of office conditions, whether you have low light or are fortunate to have a bright working space. They’re very easy to care for as they’re resistant to insect infestations and they never lose their colour no matter how long you deprive them of light. If you’re looking to add a little pop of colour to your home office desk, Devil’s Ivy is your best choice. The plant was even recommended in NASA’s Clean Air Study because of its air-purifying attributes. They thrive in evenly moist soil, but not drenched.

5. POTHOS 

Pothos might be one of the most widely cultivated plants in modern history. These vining aroids are so common that I don't think I can name a single person in my life that hasn't had one in their house at some point or another. Renowned for their hardy disposition and ability to handle extremely low light conditions, they have become famous the world over.
