4 Great Home Office Plant Inspiration Ideas

4 Great Office Plant Inspiration Ideas

Do you want to enjoy a bit of nature in your office? Look at creating a lovely space in your office using plants. There are so many different kinds of plants, the possibilities are endless. If you are thinking about adding some plants to your office, check out this list for some office plant inspiration. 

1) Low light plants 

Many offices don’t have much as far as natural lighting, so you might need to look into some plants that don’t require as much light. These are all smaller plants, so you don’t need to worry about taking up a large area, and you can easily hang them in baskets if you want to keep your desk space clear. 

Spider Plants

These plants require weekly watering and low to moderate light. They can be placed in rooms with stable temperatures and grow pretty quickly, making them a great candidate for a hanging window plant. 

Devils Ivy

This gorgeous ivy likes to live in indirect sunlight, so it would be ideal on a shelf or desk area. They do well in warmer rooms. Devil’s ivy should be watered when half the soil is dry in warmer months and when the soil is completely dry in colder months. 

Snake Plants

Snake plants are very tolerant of light, and they enjoy being placed in areas where they get a bit of sunshine each day, but they will grow (a little slower, though) in darker areas. These can be watered every two weeks unless the soil gets dry faster than that. 

2) Low maintenance plants

If you just want a touch of greenery without worrying about keeping up on the watering, then succulent oofice plants will be your best bet. These are well-known desk plants because they require such little light and water. You can’t ignore them forever, but they need far less care than other larger plants, so look at getting a small succulent garden to brighten up the space. 

Jade plants

These succulents are great for sunny windowsills when they are older and for indirect sunlight when they are just starting out. They only need to be watered once every 2-3 weeks, making them ideal for an office. 

Hens and Chicks

One of the most common succulent plants is Hens and Chicks, and you see them available at garden centers all of the time. These plants do well in gritty soil with lots of light. You can water them once a week unless they are already damp. These are very condo friendly plants for home offices.


These guys make a great desk plant, but they don’t do well in direct sunlight (their leaves can get sunburnt!). They have cute flowers that bloom occasionally. It would be best to water them every 2-3 weeks or when the top inch of the soil has dried out. 

3) Small plants

Many office spaces are small, so you might not have the space for a large fig office plant. Smaller plants are much easier to move around, and they will require less space, so you have room for other office furniture. 

Nerve Plants

This smaller plant will only grow about 3-6 inches tall and about 12-16 inches wide. It will require a bit of indirect sunlight, and it needs to be watered every 3-4 days to keep the soil moist enough.

African Violet

These plants give you a beautiful flower that looks amazing in any office. They need indirect sunlight, and they need to be watered from the bottom when the soil on the top gets dry. 

Air plant

An air plant can survive in almost any condition, and they don’t even need soil to thrive. They should be in full sun and misted a few times a week. These are some of the best plants for decor, and they only get a few inches high. 

4) Large Plants

If you have the space, you can get away with a larger office plant with lots of personality. These brighten up a room quickly, and they’re ideal for anyone who only wants one plant to worry about. 

Fiddle Leaf Fig

One of the hottest plants in the last few years has to be the beautiful fiddle leaf fig. These tall guys grow to be about 5-6 feet, and they like being watered every week. They enjoy steady sunlight and enjoy being wiggled to help their leaf grow. 

Rubber Plant

These dark-leaved beauties look fantastic in any place. They love filtered sunlight, so it’s ok to close your blinds a bit. Water these plants once a week, and they will grow perfectly. 

Ficus Alii Plant

This is a good choice if you’re looking for an extra tall office plant to fill some ceiling space. They grow to be about 6-8 feet tall. They need water every nine days and love to be in bright indirect sunlight. 

There are so many plants that you can use to make a small space look lush and friendly. Office plants have many great benefits, and you can use them to brighten things up in any space. Add some plants to your office today, and you won’t regret it!
