Long known as a wonderful way to spruce up any office or home décor, living plants are also scientifically proven to clean the air in their surrounding environment! Be sure to follow the specific care instructions for each type.. Additionally, these tips provided by the Society of American Florists will make sure any green gift thrives and looks its best:

Keep in medium-light locations and out of direct sunlight. Natural light is best, although some can also thrive in office fluorescent light.  Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage gifts will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light.

Soil should be kept moist at all times. Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. However, be careful to avoid over watering - do not allow roots to stand in water. Avoid wetting leaves.

Do not expose the plant to excessive heat or cold. Keep in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators.
