#1: Cacti

#1: Cacti

Easy to care for and rad-looking, cacti are a no-brainer as office desk plants. They retain water for a long time and need watering only once or twice a week. You could opt for flowering cacti or the long spindly variety– just make sure to keep it in a corner that’s out of immediate reach!

Pro Tip: If you have a window desk, you’re in luck– cacti thrive in direct sunlight. If you don’t have a window desk, you now have an excuse to ask for one!

#2: Snake Plant

#2: Snake Plant

Scientifically known as Sansevieria, the snake plant can last for up to a month without water, so you can take that month off without a care. They do well in low-light conditions but can also hold their ground in sunlight, making them the ideal office desk plant.

Pro Tip: Snake plants are said to purify the air and rid it of toxins– a perfect companion to dispel negative energy!

#3: Golden Devil’s Ivy

Yet another low-maintenance indoor plant, the golden devil’s ivy is a potted plant small enough to keep on your work desk. It only needs minimal care and thrives under indirect sunlight. Put some plant food into the pot once a month for additional nourishment.

Pro Tip: Looking at your Devil’s ivy plant can tell you how it’s faring– the lighter the leaves, the more sun it needs!

#4: Bamboo

#4: Bamboo

Bamboo is great to have as office desk plants because it needs very little light to survive and thrive. They can be kept in small self-watering pots– all you’ll need to do is change the water every once in a while. Keep an eye out for the number of shoots you pick out, though, because every number has a different meaning!

Pro Tip: Bamboo scores a lot of brownie points in Feng Shui for good luck. And who doesn’t need a bit of luck at work, right?
