Table Plants

Bring some natural beauty into your home with a houseplant for every nook, cranny and surface. Plants don’t just liven up your room, but they can also improve your mental and physical health. There’s bound to be a free spot on your dinner table or desk. As these table plants are a super diverse bunch, there’s bound to be one that takes your fancy! Scroll down to see our suggestions.

Plants for Your Desk or Table

Somehow, no matter how many plants you have in your home, there’s always room for more. The plants in this edit are nice and compact, making them a great choice for any tabletop. Putting the plant in a stunning container is key here to give it an extra wow-factor.

Most of the plants in this collection are reasonably easy to care for. However, small plants in general can be more susceptible to environmental changes. For example, small plants can suffer if they’re left too long between waterings, given too much water or left in direct sunlight. Think of them as the toddlers of your plant collection, needing a bit extra attention now and then. Since they have little soil, the best watering policy is little and often.

Upgrading your decor with plants is easier than you might think, though! Prioritise creating an atmosphere where you feel you can flourish. Whether you’re looking for some accent pieces or a bit more drama, unleash your creativity and enjoy the journey. One thing’s for sure: once you start your plant journey, it won’t be long before you’re a bit obsessed!

For Desks by a Window

We’re here to give you some ideas on how to incorporate plants in your interior design. A spot in direct sunlight is not one that every plant can cope with. Brown scorch marks will eventually show on your plant’s foliage if it’s too exposed to the rays. Don’t be discouraged; there are plenty of table plants that admire the sun! Succulents, for example, are perfect office plants as they’re not fussy at all.

One of those sun lovers is the Snake Plant ‘Mikado’. Native to West Africa, it’s used to a hot and dry climate. Its elongated, pointy fronds give it a sculpture-like appearance that is best complemented with a decorative pot. This plant is very hardy, making it an easy to care for variety. Even if you’re away for a long weekend, this one doesn’t mind being left to its own devices.

A Spot With Bright Indirect Light

If the table in question is in a bright room, the (indoor plant) world is your oyster. All plants require some natural light to survive. In a prime spot like yours, plants are easy to grow, and they’ll flourish in no time. Use the wide variety of colours, textures and shapes to create an ambience you can thrive in.

Are you looking for a centrepiece for your table? The Devil’s Ivy N’Joy would be a beautiful addition. With more bright light, its leaves will take on more white patches on its green leaves. It’s a pretty fast-growing plant, so there’ll be flowing tendrils quickly. If the urban jungle look is not what you’re going for, you can always tame its flow.

Dinner Table in a Dimly Lit Room

There may seem to be fewer options for a darker room, but just you wait. You can go a long way by reducing the amounts of watering for plants in shadier spots. Some varieties are already adapted to darker environments, which we’d like to introduce you to. Pop them on your table to foster the atmosphere you’re looking to create.

Brighten up the room with the vibrant green Lucky Bamboo ‘Gold’. Whilst it’s sure to bring a splash of colour, it is said to also bring good fortune to the owner. Its intertwined stalks resemble those of a bamboo plant, with its foliage branching out at the top. This hard to kill plant survives in low light, making it a great choice for your office desk or table.

Promote Your Wellbeing

Plants are an up-and-coming trend for decorating homes all over the country. We’re pretty sure that this is not just because of their beautiful looks - they simply make you feel good! This is because of their positive effects on body and mind. No wonder that many find themselves plant-obsessed once they’ve experienced the joys of plant care.

Improve the Quality of Air

We all remember photosynthesis from science classes back in our school days. During that process, plants take in CO2 and expel oxygen through tiny pores embedded in their foliage. When they take in CO2, those pores also remove toxins from the air. Certain plants, like the Weeping Fig Tree, are very effective at purifying the air.

Plants can also support your respiratory system through increasing humidity levels. By misting and watering your plant regularly, it will increase levels of moisture in your home. If you’re looking for a desk plant, it can help reduce the drying effects of your office’s air conditioning or heating. The Areca Palm is a skilled natural humidifier whilst being small enough to fit on your desk.

Support Your Mental Health

We believe that caring for your houseplants will help you develop a nurturing relationship with yourself. Looking after plants can remind you of the importance of ‘care’ in general. As you develop this nurturing energy, it will eventually start to spread to yourself and other people. In the busy lives we live, taking these moments to tend to ourselves and others helps us keep more of a balance.

Naturally occurring fractal patterns trigger a cognitive response that can help you focus. These infinitely repeating patterns put us in a state that is relaxing but attentive. With its dark green fishbone marking, the Calathea Never Never has this pattern. To give yourself a break from the tiring laptop screen, keep this plant nearby, and you may notice how your focus increases.

What we’ve inherited from our ancestors is a subconscious response to natural environments. If there was a great abundance of plants in different shades of green, it indicated that the area was habitable. What we’re left with today is that we greatly benefit from a diverse and dense plant collection. Start with a table plant or our Plant Subscription to get started with your own green oasis.
