Clear The Air



    Clear the air with the best air purifying office plants.  Great for boosting productivity in the workspace and providing psychological benefits of wellbeing by reducing stress.




THE FIVE BEST OFFICE PLANTS

  1. Susie (Sansevieria) is a great choice for office spaces as she puts up with low light levels and infrequent watering, all while purifying the air of nasty chemicals often abundant in indoor spaces.
  2. Mix up the heights of your plants to create a real visual statement. Rick (Dracaena fragrans) is a great option for this, as his tall, striking stature makes an impression without requiring a huge amount of attention.
  3. Big Ken (Howea forsteriana) is a firm favourite for his ability to transform a space with his large, arching fronds. He’s often a great choice for offices as he needs only filtered light.
  4. Robin (rubber plant) has beautiful glossy leaves of course, but he offers so much more. Chosen as one of NASA’s top air-purifiers, he’s a star at removing formaldehyde from the air.
  5. Howard (Aspidistra) is also known as the cast-iron plant thanks to his almost indestructible disposition. He can put up with a shady spot, less than frequent watering, and colder temperatures than most plants.

NYT Article

There was an interesting article in the NY Times this week with lots of pictures of interiorscapers doing "their thing" in empty office buildings. This is happening around the country in countless office buildings. Soon, some employees will return to many of these offices and will appreciate the plants and the greenery that they bring. 


Here is a link to the article and some of the content.


The motion-sensing lights sense nothing. The swivel chairs do not swivel. Only one sign of life remains in the abandoned corporate floor plan: potted plants.
Intended as a note of vibrancy amid bland surroundings, workplace greenery now seems an eerie symbol of the suddenness with which workers abandoned their routines.

Yet the cactuses and philodendrons we left behind have not been forgotten. During the pandemic, some have had their own essential workers keeping them alive. So-called interior horticulturalists water - and occasionally pet - the plants every few weeks, tending to a patch of the American economy.

Happy 4th of July!

Yes, we all enjoy a good barbecue with family and friends, but there is a whole lot more to the 4th of July holiday. Below are a few paragraphs about the 4th of July from the History Channel website to help understand the meaning of the 4th of July holiday.
The Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day or July 4th, has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues.

When the initial battles in the Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, few colonists desired complete independence from Great Britain, and those who did were considered radical.

By the middle of the following year, however, many more colonists had come to favor independence, thanks to growing hostility against Britain and the spread of revolutionary sentiments such as those expressed in the bestselling pamphlet "Common Sense," published by Thomas Paine in early 1776.

Note that Everything Grows is closed Friday July 3rd in observance of the 4th of July holiday.  We will be resume business on Monday July 6th.  Have a great 4th of July!
