Plant Tips and Tricks

The easy orchid

The orchid is one of the easiest plants to maintain in an indoor space. Medium light is best with Eastern or Northern exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office.

Pot Color and Design

A neutral colored pot or container for your plant will show your plant’s colors to the best advantage. By not drowning the plant out with a bright container, the plant will be the first thing people see.

Neem Oil Insecticide Kills Bugs

Neem oil insecticide can be used safely to treat office plants for mealybugs, aphids, whiteflies, thrips and fungus gnats. Neem oil causes bugs to lose their appetites causing them to starve. Neem oil also reduces female fertility and inhibits reproduction. Consider 2 to 3 applications over a short period of time to affect every life stage.

Do the research before you purchase plants.

It is important to remember that plants are living things, not just art that hangs on a wall or sits in a lobby. Do some research before you purchase a plant. Take time to examine our plant reference guide and decide which plant is best for your office. Think long term, that umbrella tree will fit great on your desk today, but what about when it’s full grown?
