With the rapidly increasing trend of remote work, more and more people are setting up home offices. Having indoor plants in your workspace not only adds aesthetic appeal but also promotes productivity and reduces stress levels. Fortunately, there are many low maintenance indoor plants in Australia that require minimal attention and can thrive in artificial lighting. We share our suggestions below of the best indoor plants for your home office.
The many benefits of low maintenance indoor plants
There are several reasons why low maintenance plants can be a good choice for your home office:
- Time-saving: Low maintenance plants require less attention and care, so you can spend more time focusing on your work instead of worrying about watering or pruning your plants.
- Reduced stress: Plants have been shown to have a calming effect on people, which can help reduce stress and anxiety levels. Having low maintenance plants in your home office can provide this benefit without adding extra stress from plant care.
- Improved air quality: Plants can help purify the air by removing toxins and releasing oxygen. This can create a healthier and more comfortable work environment, which can increase productivity and reduce fatigue.
- Aesthetic appeal: Plants can add a touch of nature and beauty to any room. Low maintenance plants can provide this benefit without requiring a lot of upkeep or maintenance.
Overall, incorporating low maintenance plants into your home office can provide several benefits, including time savings, reduced stress, improved air quality, and aesthetic appeal.
Our top 5 recommendations for the best low maintenance indoor plants in Australia
There are several indoor plants that can be considered low maintenance. Here are some of our favourites:
- Mother-in-Law’s Tongue (Sansevieria): These plants are known for their ability to thrive in low light conditions and infrequent watering. They are also good at purifying the air.
- Zanzibar Gem (Zamioculcas zamiifolia): For the minimalist home office, ZZ plants are very resilient and can last without water for long periods of time. They are also able to tolerate low light conditions.
- Orchids (Orchidaceae): A timeless classic, orchids are relatively low-maintenance indoor plants. They thrive in bright, indirect light and prefer to be in a humid environment. Water them once a week. We adore Phalaenopsis Orchids for their simplistic beauty.
- Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum): Peace lilies are known for their ability to improve air quality. They do require more frequent watering than some of the other plants on this list, but they are still relatively low maintenance.
- Terrariums: A fun and low-maintenance way to bring a bit of nature into indoor spaces, terrariums are miniature gardens contained within glass vessels. They can be designed to fit a variety of aesthetics, from sleek and modern to whimsical and charming.
