Choosing the right mix of plants.
Working with plants in the office or home can help you feel more relaxed and focused. As a general rule, place enough for every person who will be sitting near it so that they have ample space between their desks and the plants. When selecting which type of green buddy to bring into your environment - think about what kind of light is needed for the plants to thrive. Having the right mix of low light requiring plants and high light requiring plants is quintessential.
