Plants for the office.
In this operating room is decorated with plants of all the free space, but grow well and develop Nephrolepis, dieffenbachia, stsindapsus, tsissus, asparagus and other plants when fluorescent lights are placed close enough. Potted plants in our lives very often adorn not only inhabited, but also office space, those in which essentially we spend most of their time. Choosing plants for the office is primarily to draw attention to what suits your office for the cultivation of plants in general - if there is smoke without stopping or in a room is too dark even for the people, the best start the hardiest plants or artificial flowers. Specificity of growth or maintenance of plants in the office is somewhat different than at home. Pros and cons of growing plants in the office, as well as two different views at one and the same factor can be summarized as follows:
Benefits of plants in offices Disadvantages cultivation in the offices of:
In the office space is often quite a lot of space and high ceilings - you can all stare at pots with small flowers, but you can put a couple of big showy plants. The offices can afford to grow such large plants such as palms or monster, which is not always convenient to grow at home. At the same time, very often the plants are on the go - in the aisles or near the doors where they can regularly hurt and injured. Plants are often exposed to drafts from constantly opening and closing doors and regularly ventilated rooms.
Plants can be under surveillance most of the day, if you're a great lover of flowers, I always find time and means of public money that would look after their pets. For the cases you can simply forget to check how they feel the plant, sometimes we are so loaded at work, when it is found that half of the plants in the office struck schitovkoy, is already too late. Can provide additional lighting plant, because most of the offices are well lit with fluorescent lights, in addition, sufficient light can be maintained continuously throughout the year. It also happens that the box office too sunny, in this case, shading may be blind, or you can place the plants away from windows, and in winter when the sun is not so hot, in contrast, move up the plant near the window.
Temperature and humidity in winter in an office environment may be quite different, not all have radiators, and in a large room is not always as hot as can be in apartments. Continuing the air conditioner may have adverse effects on plants, not only too hot or cold air, but also just formed a strong wind from him. Plants in offices, especially when many of them, not only decorate the room, but also improve the air.
However, to grow useful plants, such as conifers, it is necessary to give them enough time to create optimum conditions, in particular, to maintain high humidity. Unfortunately, in some offices decided to smoke, but it harms not only human health but also to plants. In addition, office space may not be in the sleeping area, where more than clean air, and industrial and commercial center, where the air is too polluted emissions especially for delicate plants. If the room is only artificial light, even very intense, it is better to choose a semi-shade plant:
Aglaonema, maidenhair, aspidistra, begonia angular and biota of the eastern, gelksina, saxifrage, peperomiya round-peperomiya gray peperomiya tupolistnaya, edged dracaena, dracaena, fragrant, dieffenbachia, Cleve, arrowroot, Monstera, paportnik Nephrolepis, ivy, sansevieriya, stsindapsus, Saintpaulia, Tolmie, Tradescantia, fatshidera, Fatsa, ficus, philodendron climbing, Fittonia, tsiperus, Chlorophytum, Shefler, euharis.
If the office is very light, not only by artificial light, but well lit by the sun, it is possible to breed light-loving plants: Aloe, Agapanthus, Bouvardia, bilbergiyu, beloperone, ginura, jasmine, Zebrina, Camellia japonica, Coleus, cacti, stonecrop, oleander , evening primrose, Livistona Chinese, plektrantus, passion fruit, Spathiphyllum, fuchsia elegant, Ficus, haworthias, Hoya, citrus.
This asparagus from the scorching rays of summer sun to protect the blinds.
Once the plant is selected as light, you need to decide on humidity, this is probably the second most important factor. If the house can humidify the air in different ways, in the office they are not always available. There may not be possible several times a day to spray plants or hang wet towels battery, then it is better to put the pots with plants in large trays with water or wet pebbles. Can be used for this cat-pots of any suitable color. They have a grill, so the stones can not put. In the hanging pots can impose a moisture-loving plant with moss and keep it moist.
Of course, if the office space is small, then most of the plants are hanging on the walls and trays do not where to put, in this case, you can grow those plants which do not require high humidity or tolerate dry air: Aloe, aspidistra, bokarneya, Gaster, hydrangea, hibiscus ginura, groundsel, kalanchoe, Callistemon, desert cacti, Cleve, euphorbia, blasting, oleander, some peperomy, Radermacher, Roche, Strelitz, sansevieriya, stocks, stephanotis, sparmaniya, tradescantia, Tolman, Haworthia, hemantus, Chlorophytum, eucalyptus , euharis, yucca. Very often the plants in offices have become something far greater than the interior, for someone is an outlet to work for someone else the subject of pride for the office.
If the office a lot of plants, it should be noted that the appearance of a pest or disease of the plants will be much harder to follow. Therefore, it is best to periodically processing preventive agents, and even more so if you have the slightest suspicion of the presence of pests or diseases on the plant. Now comes a lot of different drugs that increase the natural immunity of plants to pests and diseases, increase your metabolism and allow the plants easier to transfer the impact of adverse factors (eg, lowering the temperature, etc.). We can recommend such preparations as "Appin", "Sodium Humate," "potassium humate," "Narcissus", "Immunotsitofit", "Immunototsit and dr. These drugs are relatively easy to buy as a flower shop, and in hardware stores or gardening centers.
If you notice any pest or disease on a plant in the office, and if this plant is not one, then treat with insecticides or fungicides, respectively, all the plants in the office. In this process should be conducted after working hours so as not to poison themselves and employees. Do not be afraid to harm the plants a strong drug, because it is very rare plants painfully react to such treatment, but damage from pests would be much more important.
Better not breed in the office of the plants that require cool winter maintenance, as otherwise they will get sick or lose their decorative appeal. It should be noted that, usually in the office throughout the year supported a warm or moderate temperatures, ie, usually within 18-25 В° C. At this temperature, the plants that need a dormant period at 12-15 В° C, the leaves will fold or even die.
Better not to choose plants for the office with falling leaves - is ahimenes, some types of azaleas, wisteria, hydrangea, gloxinia, some species of magnolias, some varieties of roses and ornamental plants, etc. These are just a few months of the year. Since these plants to ensure proper maintenance of the dormant period. Typically, this storage rhizomes, bulbs or tubers, at lower temperatures in dry, shaded area. This requires additional effort or time, but it is not always possible at work.
This happened with the secretary of Nina in one of the NII. At one time it was passion for his boss and bought him into the office wildly expensive flowering shrub euharisa huge, and his new French perfume. And the chef has started an allergy. Nina several times changed, first perfume, then all my perfume before it became clear that the chief of allergy to pollen.
Another case, even an embarrassment, there was water from the departments will not call a newspaper. Staff decided the anniversary of his boss to give her palmochku. All would be nothing if not a boss spinster in the modern sense, no sense of humor, and palmochka was not just started to bloom amorfofallyusom cognac, as stated in the card that came with recommendations for care to the plant, brought from the flower center . Fortunately no one was fired.
