Top 3 Tips For First-Time Office Plant Owners
Being a first-time plant owner can be daunting – especially for the office. Not only do you need to consider the placement and plant type, but there's also the pressure of keeping the plants looking their best for all who enter your office space. We get it; the last thing you want to do is damage your new plants, which is why it's important to learn how to care for them properly. Never fear, here are our three top tips to help any first-time plant owners get started!
1. Do Your Research on Plants
Half the battle of having thriving office plants is picking the right plant for your office space in the first place. Your first step should be researching what plants will work in your environment. For example, if your office doesn't get much lighting, we recommend selecting a plant that thrives in low light, such as Sansevieria. Make sure to consider light levels, office layout, and office temperature!
2. Don't Panic
It can be nerve-wracking when your new plants show concerning signs, such as yellowing leaves. While your instinct may be to pour a glass of water on it and stick it under a bright lamp, hang on! While yes, plants can let us know what they need with their appearance, sometimes all they need is time to adjust to their new, non-greenhouse environment. Maintain the plant according to regular care instructions and your plant should come around in no time!
