The importance of a green workspace

Adding greenery to your workspace yields immediate positive effects. Some plants, in fact, help improve air quality by absorbing harmful substances and releasing oxygen. This can alleviate headaches, fatigue, and respiratory irritation.



Moreover, gazing at greenery has a calming effect and can contribute to stress reduction. Studies have demonstrated that employees in a green environment generally feel happier and more content.



Orchids are ideal for a workspace because they are easy to care for and long-lasting. With minimal effort, you can enjoy them for years!

An important step in keeping your orchid in bloom for as long as possible is watering. Remove the orchid from its decorative pot and place it in a container of water for 5 – 10 minutes, allowing the roots to absorb the water. Remove the orchid, let it drain, and then place it back in the decorative pot. Ideally, do this once a week.



And hey, look at the difference orchids can make in a workspace. In addition to all the aforementioned benefits, plants add ambiance and inject colour into a space.

The scent of orchids

When working from home, it can be challenging to separate your personal life from work. Scents can help with this. Choose a fragrance for your home office that energizes and enhances concentration. It should be a different scent from the rest of the house, to make a clear distinction. For example, you can create a home spray with fragrant orchids. Not only does it smell delightful, but it also adds a charming touch to your workspace!
