Office Plant Ideas – Succulents

DIY Office Plants Succulents_old tinsSome offices can seem a bit dull and often the office is the last place people find inspiration. However adding a bit of life to your office can make a big difference in how you view the space. It important to feel inspired and motivated at your desk not just for your job but for yourself as well. Since you can’t take your pet to the office a plant is the next best thing. Succulents are easy to take care of and they come in a variety of colours and shapes. They often give the look and fell of flowers just with an extended life and far less maintenance.

My favourite idea is using an old teacup as a vase. It’s inexpensive, fresh, creative and adds an extra splash of colour to your desk.

Or some old vases work just as well!

This is a really great idea if you have a home office and you don’t want the kids getting their hands on your garden or the pets messing it up.

You can find these glass bowls at most home or garden stores. It’s a great way to add a lot of detail in a small space. The great thing is you can change it as often as you like by simple adding or changing the shells or stones. To keep it alive… simply spray it with a little water.

If you favour the more “industrial look” then this one is great. If you lack desk space then the wall garden is the way to go.

This is one of the cutest DIY wall gardens I have seen. Have a look at the tutorial on the Merry Brides blog. No desk space needed and little maintenance required.

Happy office gardening!
