    According to a study produced by Southern Botanical, Inc. the use of plants indoors increased the positive energy and attitudes of employees in the work environment. While it’s true that some plants in the work environment show a positive reaction, too many plants in a space can cause the opposite reaction. Different indoor plants can also help remove airborne toxins and make the air fresher overall, which in turn, should boost people’s moods.

    There appears to be some scientific evidence that an indoor environment that includes plants is beneficial to psychological well-being. Some of the benefits that have been cited include lower blood pressure, lower anxiety levels, increased reaction times and generally increased sense of well-being. However, it is important to recognize the limitations of much of the research that has been done in this area, which has usually focused on the quantifiable effects of having plants in a workplace as opposed to a workplace without them. In 2007 the Norwegian University of Life Sciences tried to examine plants in conjunction with other workplace factors including stress, noise and temperature. The study found a small but reliable correlation to plants at workers’ desks and those workers’ productivity and absenteeism.
