If you've been spending days staring at a screen and worry that you haven't been getting out enough, you're right. We can't help you fix a busy remote work schedule, but there is something that can help: bringing a bit of the outdoors into your workspace with one of these incredible office plants. Ranging in size and care requirements, each of them can add some welcome green to your office and some welcome joy to your workday.

Marble Queen Pothos from The Sill

My marble pothos plant sits next to me as I write this, offering companionship and inspiration with her gorgeous patterned leaves. 10/10 would recommend. (Don't overwater; let the soil fully dry out in between.)

Order a Marble Queen Pothos for $57 here.

Fiddle Leaf Fig from Bloomscape

These are larger plants that immediately change whichever room they are placed in for the better. They look especially great in cozy corners. If you can give them bright filtered light and relatively warm temperatures, they'll give you impressive height and beautiful, sculptural leaves.

The Geoff from Urbanstems

If you're bored and in need of some mid-workday encouragement, consider Geoff. This golden giraffe planter holds an air plant. The plant only requires an occasional soak in water, so Geoff is a low-maintenance friend who can only brighten your life.
