planting up your workspace
Whether you’re working from home or in a large busy office, there’s always room to green up your space with a little bit of nature!
If your green thumb is non-existent, why not go for something from our mini plant range.
Succulents like our Chinese Money Tree are very slow growing and require watering only every few weeks. You could also go for an Haworthia, the beautifully studded Aloe. This also requires little care but none-the-less spouts babies over time which can be potted on. Our unusual Love Heart plant stays small and sweet for years and requires watering only every month.
All three are super easy to look after and slow growing, so don’t need to be re-potted very often and the Aloe can offer lovely flowers from time to time. The easiest way to kill these is by overwatering so forgetting about them isn’t a bad thing!
If you’re looking for something to purify the air around you, we suggest you go for the Devil’s Ivy or a Spider Plant. These are both low maintenance and simply need to be watered only when the soil dries out. Keep them out of direct sunlight. These are bigger than the Cacti or Succulents, so space will need to be considered with these. Devil’s Ivy has a trailing habit, and the Spider plant will produce babies on long vines.
If you want to create something more of a statement, why not group your plants together in 3s or 5s or create one large grouping and add to your collection over time. Plants also work well in pairs! Place them on a mantelpiece at either end and allow to trail. If you are having a party, place a pair on the dinner table with some candles and vases of foliage for an instant statement tablescape.
All of our mini plants arrive with soil and gravel along with either a glass or ceramic pot included as well as step-by-step instructions on how to plant.
Our Summer range of indoor leafy house plants arrive planted up, simply water and place in the decorative grass pot provided. We do not send soil with these as the Spider plant prefers a congested route ball. After a year or so repot Devil's Ivy if you wish the plant to grow larger and trail further.
Here at FlowerBe, we sell a size range from 9 - 15cm pots for all our indoor plants. If you plan to propagate any of your collection – ideally the Haworthia or Spider plant, follow our quick guide in the blog section of our website. Becoming an amateur plant breeder can be great fun! Grow to increase your own collection or gift them on in a small pot to another plant lover. Check out our range of ceramics in the accessory section of our site.
When we mention pot size, we typically measure in cm and this measurement covers the width of the pot at its widest point (typically the top of the pot). Your pot size will depend on what plant you’re potting and it’s needs.
Here at FlowerBe, we sell a size range from 9 - 12cm pots for our established plants. Generally smaller variety plants are sown into shallow seed trays and then moved into bigger pots once they have grown into small plants but we would recommend using a small pot around 7.5cm or 9cm to start larger seeds in.
In our eco-conscious world, look for recycled card trays and pots or re-use old pots (but be sure to clean them thoroughly before reusing) and avoid the single use plastic pots.
