A palm is the perfect additional accent if you want your workspace to have a stylish tropical vibe. Don’t be fooled by its name because the Dwarf Date Palm is the largest champion in air purification and is part of the Arecaceae family.
This palm variety, also called Pygmy Date Palm, grows little by little and reaches a maximum indoor height of 4 to 5 feet. The plant prefers indirect light, which makes it the companion for office workers all over the world. Another good thing about the Dwarf Date Palm is that it doesn’t need a too humid and hot environment.
The English Ivy is another wonderful plant for office desks thanks to its gorgeous foliage which helps bring a touch of the outdoors inside. This plant grows lush and long, not to mention that caring for it is relatively simple and easy, as long as you give it lots of sunlight.
But aside from this, the plant can tolerate dry conditions. In fact, it wants to be left just a bit dry, which means that it doesn’t need frequent watering. English ivy together with its other varieties is an ideal addition to workspaces when placed near windows.
The dracaena plant resembles a tree and is an ideal accessory to office spaces. Caring for any variety of dracaena is also quite simple. But in particular, the Red-edged Dracaena has been handpicked by NASA itself because of its excellent properties when it comes to purifying indoor air. This plant not just looks charming with its strap-like foliage rich in colors. Dracaena is also very forgiving of temperatures provided that they are not too cold.
