Freshen Up Your Home Office

Spruce up your home office space with houseplants! Whether or not your home is blessed with tons of square footage, incorporating greenery is essential to bringing it to life. Besides adding extra oxygen into the air, some plants can actually absorb dangerous toxins and provide a safer environment.

It may not be something we’re conscious about, but the kind of environment we work in can impact our mental health. By making even the smallest of changes like adding a plant or two into your space can make a difference. Indoor plants provide visual breaks from the computer screen and give your eyes a deserving rest.


Main benefits of home plants:

  • Reduce toxins in the air, making your air cleaner

  • Helps reduce stress and anxiety

  • Helps enhance creativity

  • Increases wellbeing

  • Research finds that plants could increase productivity by 15%

Tips for placing your plants in your home

The actual reason of having a plant is to actually see the plant. Place it next to your doorway, in your garden or on your desk so that it will improve your mood and brighten up your WFH setting.

• Think of focusing your furniture around your plant.
• Pick house plants that make you feel happy when you look at it
• Be tactical in what plants you choose

Find the Right Indoor Plant

The best indoor plants for your home office are both easy on the eyes and easy to care for. A beginner to plants? Not much space in your home? Don’t worry, there’s a houseplant for you. To learn more on how to take care of your indoor plants, explore here.

Chinese Evergreen

Chinese Evergreen is known for being both beautiful and low-maintenance. These leafy indoor plants thrive if you give them plenty of low to medium indirect light and water them only when the soil is dry. You can get yours delivered from Pretty Plants KL.



Maranta plants will add a peaceful, easy feeling to your workspace. Maranta plants prefer regular watering and extra humidity if you can provide it. They are not terribly picky about the amount of light they receive, just as long as it is indirect. You can get your Maranta here.


ZZ Plant

ZZ plant requires less water than a lot of plants, so if you tend to neglect yours you’ll do well with this one. It’ll thrive in bright, indirect light—but it can also tolerate low light if you have a less-than-sunny spot you want to keep it in. Shop ZZ Plant for your desk here.


English Ivy

Hearty and easy-to-grow, the English Ivy is often used as a pretty ground cover for outdoor gardening. Great for boosting oxygen levels in the home, it grows well in indirect light but cannot tolerate high temperatures. Sound like your kind of plant? Get it here.


Snake Plant

Snake plant is the perfect size for your desk. Although the one in the picture above is probably the most common, there are many different shapes and colours of snake plants out there, so you can take your pick. Get your Snake Plant here.


Rubber Plant

A potted rubber tree tolerates bright direct light, but put it in a slightly more shaded spot and it will thank you for it. Water when the soil has dried out — about every week or so. Take your home to the next level and get a Rubber Plant here.
