Common Office Plant Questions
At Kim Parker Plants, we've heard just about every plant question in the book.
Whether it's your first time with office plants in general or just with a specific plant, it’s natural for questions to come up. Our team of horticultural technicians are happy to assist you with any questions you may have and make recommendations based on your space (among other things)! Below are some common questions we get asked, as well as their answers.
Why Does My Plant Look Sad?
When you purchase a new plant, it can be easy to forget that what you are purchasing is alive and has been grown in a warm, moist environment. Your home can be a big change of environment for your new plant, and it is not unusual for it to undergo an adjustment period. This can include some yellowing leaves or even fallen leaves, which will stop given time. Other times, plants may be sending you a message, usually that it needs water or has too much.. To read more about what may be going on with your plant and to get tips, read our blog about yellowing leaves.
Does It Matter What Plant I Get?
Yes and no.
In general, it's not about specific plants (unless someone is allergic to them!) but rather the care that they need. Some factors we consider are your office light levels, water requirements for the plant, your office temperature, and how often you or our team will be providing care.
What Do They Do?
People often assume office plants are great for just adding some extra décor. And while they are great for that, they also have other benefits. Certain installations, like moss walls, can act as dividers and dampen sound. At the same time, studies have shown that certain plants lead to increased happiness and productivity.
At Kim Parker Plants, our team of professionals will offer their advice and guidance on where to place plants to have a cohesive look, what plants would do best in your office, and assist every step of the way! For each new project, we have many different packages to choose from, ensuring that the result is breathtakingly beautiful. We love our plants, and we know you will too.
