So, according to the guys at National Plants at Work Week (with all the journalistic talents at MT towers we still can't work out fully whose initiative this is), there are a few things you need to know about having a potted something or other on your desk:
- Plants keep the air clean and refresh it with oxygen for you to breathe
- Being able to see plants or having one on your desk makes you less susceptible to stress or depression
- They can also raise humidity levels so that you feel more comfortable
- Amazingly we are more productive when they’re around too
Anyway, here are MT's recommended plants for some of the business people of the moment. Weirdly, the people also look a bit like the plants we've chosen for them.
