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 a Succulent, Aloe or Cactus (these are included in our plant subscription – season dependent). These are super easy to look after and slow growing so don’t need to be re-potted very often and can offer lovely flowers. 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 a Peace Lily, Snake Plant or an English Ivy. All of these are also low-maintenance and simply need to be watered so they don’t dry out. Keep them out of direct sunlight. These are bigger than the Cacti or Succulents, so space will need to be considered with these.
When it comes to picking decorative pots for your plant babies, think of the colour and texture making sure to compliment your space and not conflict with it. Hannah, our resident flower nerd, and florist loves a textured pot with interesting shapes such as our Cactus pot whereas Molly our Digital Content Manager loves the midnight blue pot which really makes the leaf colour pop.
If you want to create more of a focal of your living office accessories, why not group your plants together in odd numbers of 3s or 5s, giving each plant a different pot or create one large design with every plant to match sitting on our wooden trays (link)
When picking what size pot you need for your plant, we recommend adding on 1cm. For example, if you have a 9cm plant pot go for a 10cm decorative pot. Place some stones in the base of the pot to help keep the roots out of any standing water.
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.
