The orchid family is composed of a diverse group of delicate, exotic looking flowering plants renowned for their unique beauty and vibrant coloration. In traditional Chinese culture, the Orchid is thought to have healing properties, and has been used to treat respiratory illness. Keeping orchids indoors does require a degree of care and maintenance, but few other flowers can brighten a room in quite the same way.
A common feature of many offices, the peace lily is not only an aesthetically pleasing choice, but also a sound practical option. The peace lily does well in low-light conditions and can even clean the air in your office by scrubbing it of harmful volatile organic compounds such as benzene and ammonia.
This family of tropical flowering plants is well adapted to life in indoor environments. They flowers come in a variety of shapes and colors and are resistant to many common pests. Bromeliads are a great, low maintenance option for office foliage.
Another option that requires fairly minimal maintenance, the snake plant is also remarkably effective at purifying indoor air. Just take care not to overwater as this can cause rot in the snake plant’s root systems.
