Best plants for your return to the office

It is about that time that people are starting to return in person to their offices, after working from home because of Covid-19. Here is a list of plants that are low maintenance and perfect for keeping in your office. Adding plants to your office will help create a more inviting space, and it will make your office feel more like home.

While picking plants for your office it is important to remember that not all houseplants will be suitable for your office. This is mainly because you probably won’t be watering it as much as your plants at home. As well, some offices have a lot of windows giving your plant a lot of sunlight, but some offices are not near any windows giving your plant very little light.
