Slowly, most of us have returned to physical workspaces – at least in a hybrid mode. Working in an office can be monotonous and stressful at times. Having a few desk plants can be a simple and effective way to add some natural beauty and a sense of calm to your work environment.
Whether you are looking to buy plants online or visit a nursery nearby, you can find numerous beautiful options for tabletop greenery. But with so many options to choose from, buying desk plants can be overwhelming. In this blog, we’ll cover five tips to help you choose the right desk plants for your workspace.
Assess your workspace
Before you start shopping for desk plants, take a look at your workspace. How much light does your desk get? Is it near a window or in a darker corner of the office? Answering these questions can help you determine what types of plants will thrive in your space. And yes, don’t forget to confirm beforehand whether you’re allowed to have plants in your workspace or it is prohibited.
One of the biggest factors to consider when buying desk plants is the level of maintenance they require. Some plants, such as succulents or cacti, require very little watering, care or attention. In fact, some of them can forgive you if you miss watering them for over a week. However, not all plants are so forgiving. Some plants, such as ferns or peace lilies, require more frequent watering and care. If you have a busy schedule or are new to plant care, it may be best to start with a low-maintenance plant and work your way up.
Choose the right size
Now that you’ve decided to buy a desk plant or more for your office desk, it’s important to consider the size of your workspace. If you have a large desk or workspace, you can choose larger plants that will make a statement and make it stand apart. If your workspace is small, opt for smaller plants that won’t take up too much space. Alternatively, you can also consider hanging plants or wall-mounted planters to save space.
Determine your style
Plants come in many shapes and colors, so consider your personal style when choosing desk plants. Do you prefer succulents, which come in a variety of interesting shapes and colors? Or are you looking to get some leafy plants, which can add a pop of greenery to your workspace? You can also choose plants with different textures or foliage to add visual interest.

You’ll be more inspired to buy plants for your work space once you research the benefits of different types of plants.
