Working at a desk or in an office is much more satisfying when there is some personalization present. It’s easy to fill the space with things you bring from home and pictures of loved ones, but plants can offer a few extra benefits, aside from looking nice.


A good rule of thumb to follow is to check how much air a plant produces regularly. Fresh air can do wonders for a workplace.


One of the most commonly suggested plants for workplace productivity is the spider plant. These are incredibly easy to grow just about anywhere. Spider plants are known for an ability to purify the air and remove toxins, which can also help lower stress levels.


Another tough-to-kill plant, the philodendron works tirelessly to remove carbon monoxide from the air. Similarly, the pothos plant is easy to care for and thrives in low-light situations, making artificial office settings perfect.


If you are looking for a plant that will not just look nice, but will also sweeten the air, check out lemon balm. As its name suggests, this plant gives off a pleasant lemon smell. This plant can be kept in low light, but it is imperative it gets watered each and every day.
