Having a plant on your desk makes you more productive

Having a potted plant on your desk apparently makes for more than just good scenery. British researchers say a houseplant in your workspace has been found to aid concentration, increase productivity and boost wellbeing by 47-percent.

To find this, researchers had 350 people measure their productivity, creativity and happiness in four differently designed work environments in a series of 90 experiments.
Researchers say pariticpants recorded a creativty boost of 45-percent and a
productivity boost of 38-percent when working in environments with plants.

Researchers say the results of the study give “company managers a real
incentive to share control of office space with their staff and create meaningful,
less didactic and more group up space.”
