What are the best office plants?

ZZ plant
If you’re on the hunt for a low-maintenance yet stylish houseplant, you can’t go wrong with a ZZ plant. These tropical beauties are known for their glossy, deep green leaves, which add a touch of luxury to any space. And, thanks to their tough nature, they’re perfect for beginners or anyone who doesn’t have a green thumb.

Devil’s Ivy

Devil’s ivy is easy to care for and ideal for low-light indoor conditions. It’s known for its air-purifying properties that can help remove toxins from the air and elevate your indoor space.

Snake Plant
Looking for a small, easy-to-care-for desk plant? Look no further than the snake plant. Also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, this striking succulent is perfect for those with brown thumbs. Snake plants are known for their tall, erect leaves that can grow up to 3 feet tall. The leaves are variegated with green and white stripes, and the margins are often tipped with yellow. Snake plants are native to Africa and thrive in hot, dry conditions. This makes them very easy to care for – they can tolerate periods of neglect and still look amazing.


Cacti are a succulent plant originating from arid, desert regions. They are well-adapted to dry conditions and can store water in their thick, fleshy leaves. Cacti come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, making them a popular hardy plant.

They don’t need a lot of water or attention and can survive in a wide range of lighting conditions – from direct sunlight to low-light spaces. Cacti also make interesting conversation starters – their unusual shapes and sizes make them stand out from other houseplants.

Peace Lily
Peace lilies are native to tropical areas of Asia and South America. They like warm, humid climates and lots of moisture. That’s why they’re such great houseplants – they can tolerate a lot of different indoor conditions. 

Peace lilies are known for their large, white flowers and glossy green leaves. They can bloom year-round but typically flower in the spring and summer. The flowers are beautiful, but they’re also very fragrant. Some people find the scent too strong, but it’s really just a matter of personal preference.

These plants like bright, indirect light and moist soil. You can water them weekly or more often if the soil starts to dry out. Peace lilies are also pretty tolerant of neglect, so if you forget to water them occasionally, they’ll still be fine.

Spider Plants
A spider plant has long, green leaves painted with white or yellow stripes. The leaves grow in a rosette pattern and can reach up to two feet in length. Spider plants are also known for their ability to produce small plantlets on the ends of their leaves. These plantlets can be used to propagate new plants.

Spider plants prefer bright, indirect light but will also do well in low-light situations. They are not heavy feeders and only need to be fertilised once every month or two. When watering, be sure to avoid getting the leaves wet, as this can cause them to brown. They are tolerant of a wide range of soil types and can even be grown in water.

English Ivy
English ivy is a classic small desk plant that has been popular for decades. It is a fast-growing plant and can quickly fill an empty space on a desk or shelf. One of the reasons English ivy is so popular as a desk plant is because it is very easy to care for. English ivy prefers bright, indirect light and should be watered when the soil is dry to the touch. If you are looking for a low-maintenance plant to spruce up your desk or shelf, English ivy is a great option!

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera plants are known for their succulent, fleshy leaves and can vary in size from a few inches to several feet tall. Aloe vera is native to Africa and the Arabian Peninsula but is now grown all over the world.

These plants are popular for a reason – they’re virtually indestructible. Aloe vera is very tolerant of neglect and can survive in a wide range of conditions. These plants prefer bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light levels. Just be sure to let the soil dry out completely between watering.

Weeping Fig
Weeping figs are one of the most popular houseplants for a reason: they’re low-maintenance, beautiful, and can help purify the air in your home.  Also known as Ficus Benjamina, these plants are native to Southeast Asia and Australia.

Weeping figs have a dense, bushy growth habit and can reach up to 10 feet tall indoors. Their leaves are glossy and dark green, with a leathery texture. They’re fairly drought tolerant, so you don’t have to worry about them if you forget to water them for a week or two.
