Recently the Modlia office has become very green fingered. It all started when two of the office built their own veg patches at home and traded some potatoes for planting. This exchange led to the planting of vegetables in pots in the office and a collection of plants appearing on shelves and bookcases.
First a few of the benefits of having plants in your office, then I’ll introduce you to a few of ours!
Office plants have been proven to increase productivity and reduce sickness absence due to their production of oxygen and cleaning of the air in an office. Plants decrease stress levels and apparently increase productivity by an average of 12%.
If you’re office is noisy, they can also be used to reduce how noise carries in an office.
Originally obtained from a market with only 2 leaves and a flower, mother nature was the original Modlia office plant.
This is actually two plants, both huge, who are slowly taking over the office and have yet to product and veg!
Saved from wedding plant
As the name suggests, it was a table centre at a wedding and was saved from the skip. It has strange – almost inflated – leaves and we’ve yet to do the research on what it is.
The latest addition to the office, this is a very young tomato plant.
