‘Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction.’
E. O. WILSON
Our plants bring invigorating beauty from the outside into your office, along with a bit of nature’s incredible power to lower stress levels, improve concentration, increase creativity and deliver higher productivity.
PHILODENDRON WITH POT + TRAY:
Lovely name derived from Greek: ‘philo’ meaning ‘love’ and ‘dendron’ meaning ‘tree’. Which makes ‘tree hugger’ - perfect because many of this species love to hug and climb trees.
RHIPSALIS WITH POT + TRAY:
With a wild ‘head of hair’ and Brazilian passport, this bossa nova of the plant world likes it hot, or at least warm. Despite being a cactus, he likes it humid so keep the ‘hair’ spritzed.
SPIDER PLANT WITH POT + TRAY:
The original retro houseplant is having a revival. Fast growing, you'll soon have lots of baby spiderettes to pot on and give to friends. Looks great in a hanging pot and why not add a macrame pot holder for the full 1970s vibe?
PRAYER PLANT WITH POT + TRAY:
Showy yet shy, this stunning plant folds its leaves in at sundown, like hands in prayer. This phenomenon is called nyctinasty and it’s a beautiful example of nature’s circadian rhythm in action. The velvety green leaves, with red veins in a distinctive herringbone pattern, fit perfectly in contemporary, stylish interiors. Embrace the natural rhythm of life and consider meditating alongside your prayer plant at the end of each day.
BIRDS NEST FERN WITH POT + TRAY:
In Malaysia, asplenium is believed to have supernatural properties and in Taiwan it’s a favourite vegetable. In Hawaii the long, graceful leaves are used in hula ceremonies. So sure, you can have a nibble or make a skirt with it if you’d like, but we think they are most beautiful in a pot in your home.
BLUE STAR FERN WITH POT + TRAY:
Each graceful frond is like a helping hand, sucking CO2 out and pushing Oxygen back into the air. The soft, grey-green colour and elegant shape make this popular with interior design enthusiasts. Phlebodium brightens a room and looks beautiful grouped with other plants of varying shapes and sizes. The design ‘Rule of 3’ states that things arranged in odd numbers are more visually appealing, so try it with an asplenium and a trailing jade.
PILEA PLANT WITH POT + TRAY:
In 1946, this was the hippest must-have home accessory in Scandinavia after a Norwegian missionary brought it back from China. Today its moon-shaped emerald leaves are once again gracing the most fashionable homes. It’s not just a pretty face though, this pilea is said to bring good fortune and abundance into your home. Green cha ching.
ZEBRA PLANT WITH POT + TRAY:
Bring this beauty into your home as a vibrant reminder of the natural rhythm of life. The Calathea follows a circadian rhythm, spreading its leaves to the sun and moving throughout the day to maximize light intake, resting at night. The striking chevron pattern will raise your spirits and the graceful leaves will help clean your air.
SNAKE PLANT WITH POT + TRAY:
We think this beautifully compact snake plant is très chic + très intelligente. The colour of the leaves may change as it adjusts to varying light levels and efficiently cleans the air of toxins, including the dreaded formaldehyde. This little beauty is perfect for a baby or child’s bedroom to keep the air clear and it looks stunning in a gathering with other houseplants. Bonne chance à tous!
ASPARAGUS FERN WITH POT + TRAY:
The Asparagus Ferm is in fact not a fern at all, this is an easy going member of the lily family. Its bright green feathery fronds will remind you of a fresh forest walk in a light spring shower. The asparagus will bring a little of nature’s calm optimism to your space.
ALOE VERA WITH POT + TRAY:
Ancient, revered, contemplated and coveted through the ages. Egyptian stone carvings depicted Cleopatra using it in her skin rituals. Upon Aristotle's advice, Alexander the Great conquered the African island of Socotra in order to take its aloe vera to treat wounded soldiers. To take advantage of aloe’s timeless benefits, you don’t have to conquer an island - just order one of our gorgeous specimens and keep it in the kitchen in case of burns.
TRAILING JADE WITH POT + TRAY:
Our charming trailing peperomia has bright green, compact rosettes of leaves that create an uplifting and vibrant environment. Peperomia are easy to care for and work especially well for offices, as they are happy with low light. The stems and leaves are a little fragile and some may be lost during transit, but gently tuck stems back into soil et voila - propagation!
FICUS GINSENG WITH POT + TRAY:
This oldie but goodie (60 million years old to be exact) will bring back soothing memories of a favourite tree out in the wilds of the world. In Asia, this plant is revered as a treatment for fever, bronchitis and rheumatism and some believe that the plant is a home to spirits.
