Low Maintenance Plants For The Office

17 Jul 2019

Artificial plants for office spaces have long been the go-to, low maintenance plant option for adding some much needed natural aesthetics to the working environment. They are low maintenance and don’t need to be positioned in direct sunlight.

However, even though artificial plants for office spaces are convenient and low-cost, they can never compare to the real deal. If you’re looking to add a touch of nature to your work space, then you can’t go wrong with some real low-maintenance plants; such as succulents and cacti, which we use in our terrariums.

Succulents and cacti are the ideal alternative to using artificial plants. Not only can they add some personality and greenery to the work space, they can also offer a number of performance boosting benefits that fake plants simply can’t.

Granted, seasonal succulents or cacti aren’t quite as low-maintenance as artificial plants, but they’re pretty close; only requiring very little watering. Plus, succulents and cacti work to improve air quality and remove toxins. So even though they require a little more work, they give more back in return.

Remember, artificial plants in your office may look the part, but they won’t be as eco-friendly for the environment. Fake plants are all too-often made with dyes in large factories, which only contribute to the growing pollution problems. Throwing away artificial plants that have faded away just adds to the rubbish laden landfills, whereas living plants are of course biodegradable, and get absorbed back into the Earth.


Productivity is one of the most important factors in any work space, and real plants can have a huge impact on employee performance. As mentioned, real low-maintenance plants like succulents and cacti in our office terrariums, can help to oxidise the room.

These natural air filters can get rid of dust and other toxins floating around in the office atmosphere. Preventing the common unpleasant symptoms of stuffy work spaces, such as headaches and fatigue. The fresher, cleaner air will help to boost everyone’s mood and positively impact productivity too. The extra green in the office space can actually inspire more creativity as well. And real plants can also help to increase memory retention and attention span. All of which works to build a stronger, healthier workforce.

Artificial plants for office spaces can’t possibly provide the same boost for your business. Real low-maintenance plants will help to improve any office worker’s quality of life, while inspiring them to engage thoughtfully with the environment.
