Many of us have had to work from home for the last two years, and as businesses realize that this way of working is possible, the work-from-home arrangement has become a significant factor in offering workers greater work flexibility.
If you’re lucky enough to have this work setup, make sure that your home workspace has these 7 plants to improve your space and productivity.
1. Snake plant
Also called sansevieria, the snake plant is almost impossible to kill because it requires little maintenance, and it can thrive indoors since it doesn’t need direct access to sunlight all the time. This plant is also great for your workspace with its tall green leaves that will make your room look chic.
You see these plants in magazines and Instagram feeds because they’re not only good-looking but also easy to maintain. Cacti plants can thrive even with little water and sunlight, making them perfect for indoors.
You can pick different varieties of cacti and put them by the window or on a display shelf to serve as your décor and pop of color in one.
They’re easily mistaken for cacti plants, but succulents are a different kind of species. Known for needing minimal sunlight, succulents are very easy to maintain and are great for decorating your workspace since they help cleanse the air to make your space more comfortable. Here are some of the most popular indoor succulents to try.
4. ZZ plant
It’s simple, sturdy, and very stylish, so you’ll love having a ZZ plant in your workspace. This type of plant is also very easy to maintain. Since it comes from Africa, it thrives better when the soil is dry. Just put it near a window for indirect sunlight and you're good to go!

If you ever need a healthy drink, you can pick some aloe vera leaves and mix them with fruits and herbs to make beverages such as the lychee ginger cooler that you can enjoy from your Thermos® Mug.

7. Money tree
Naturally, you want your workspace to attract a lot of fortune and good luck. So, why not get auspicious and keep a money tree by your desk! This small plant is perfect for indoor spaces since it can thrive without constant direct sunlight, and you don’t need to water it every day. The money tree is also believed to bring good luck to the space where it’s placed.
Start shopping for these plants and watch your workspace turn from “blah” to “wow” without the need to spend much money. Plus, having plants around you can easily make you feel more relaxed and creative.
