Create Greener Offices With Krost Office Planters
If you’re stuck indoors for hours every day, then greenery can certainly bring a little joy to your office space. It’s a great way to connect to nature and add colour and a burst of freshness to an indoor workspace.
If you don’t have green fingers, that’s okay too. Many plants survive really well indoors and don’t need much maintenance to thrive. Our own local varieties do really well indoors and these will be a welcome addition to your office or desk.
What sort of indoor plants should you consider?
All it takes is one plant to add much-needed freshness to the office. If you’re not sure where to begin, opt for low-light plants that require very little fuss. Some of the more popular office plant options in South Africa include:
This really hardy species is ideal indoors and presents with stiff long leaves that look like tongues, pointed upward. Also known as the snake plant, the real name of this popular plant is Sansevieria trifasciata. The best news is that this plant is super easy to grow and will thrive in light and dark corners – therefore you can plant them inside and out in the garden. There are quite a few variations which mean that the size and colour may differ from one variety to the next. In an office, opt for the smaller plant which you can easily pot and keep on a desk or in a stylish floor pot.
Aloes are amazing plants with many added health benefits too. Grow them outside or choose a smaller plant in a pot indoors for added greenery. Your indoor aloe will need lots of light and well-draining soil. It would be best to place your pot near a sunny window to keep it happy. Rotate the pot once or twice a week so that all sides of the aloe receive equal lighting.
The beautiful ficus plant is very popular indoors and perfect for a larger pot. Ficus trees can maintain their tree-like shape regardless of their size, so this makes them ideal for bonsais or for massive houseplants in large spaces. They are rapid growers and will require lots of nutrients to grow well. Ficus also thrive in warmer temperatures – so keep your room over 16 degrees and ensure that your plant is exposed to relatively high humidity.
Invest in quality pots to proudly display your plants in the office. A beautiful pot will help to create a focal point and keep your prized plant as the centre of attention.
