Plants for a plant wall

Plants can be an excellent backdrop for brand slogans in your reception area.

Lavazza used a plant wall in their flagship store in London to highlight a key quote from their founder.


Why not try a living wall and fill it with plants that like similar conditions. Go for plants that enjoy humidity like Spider plants, ferns, and calatheas for colour.

Architectural plants

Architectural plants are a great way to make a statement. They're large and easy to maintain, and they add a touch of elegance to any office.

Snake plants

Snake plants with their sword-like leaves make great architectural focal points in an atrium or reception area. Why not pack a lot of them into a massive stone planter to make an impact.

Kentia Palm

The Kentia Palm is another popular office plant. It's a large, tropical palm that adds a touch of elegance to any office. They don't need much water or sunlight, making them the perfect plant for busy professionals.

Other plants to consider include:

Rubber Tree

English Ivy

English ivy is an evergreen vine that's known for its ability to improve air quality. It's also one of the most popular office plants due to its low maintenance requirements. This would look great crawling on a wall behind the reception desk.

Big plants that will grow with your business

Big plants

The Fiddle Leaf Fig, or Ficus lyrata, is another popular office plant. It's a little more high-maintenance than the Weeping Fig, but it's worth the effort.

Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina)

The Weeping Fig, also known as the Ficus benjamin, is a popular office plant. It's easy to care for and comes in a variety of sizes.

Dracaena Marginata

This is another popular office plant due to its low-maintenance requirements. It has long, green leaves and can grow up to six feet tall.
If you have a lot of glass create a screen with some trees or even a row of bamboo.

If money and maintaining a consistent temperature aren’t an issue and you have a large atrium or indoor street to fill, pick a tree dependent on the light you are going to be able to give it. These will require special installation to ensure it gets adequate light, water and fertiliser.
