Harry’s house plant guide for office bods

While I try to get outside as often as I can (the dogs certainly help with that), I do spend more hours sat at a PC than not, and so I was interested when my colleage Harry Hillery (of housing) called for info on low maintainance house plants. Here is what he found (thanks for sharing Harry).



·         Plants recommended for office environments:


Weeping figs are pretty tolerant and need little water in the winter – http://www.houseofplants.co.uk/Ficus_benjamina_Weeping_fig.htm


Painted Prayer Plant (Stromanthe Triostar) – good in low level light


Spider plants – good at soaking up the atmospheric output of printers and copiers


Mother in law’s tongue – Sansevieria trifasciata – ‘almost indestructable’


Aloe Vera – very hardy, likes light and warm. Nice associations with health – soothing skin


Dragon trees & ivy – good at soaking up the atmospheric output of printers and copiers


Peace lilies – good at soaking up the atmospheric output of printers and copiers


Money plants – low maintenance
