  • Bench top Trough – Partition Mounted Trough Pot Dimension 750mm long – 190mm deep – 180mm wide Description When your office is tight on space but you still want to achieve a healthy environment and soften down the hard edge of a new office refit, partition mounted troughs are a good option. In mass they also help to minimise echoing and reduce sound transfer between areas which can be essential if staff are on the phone a great deal. Access for watering and servicing is the most crucial issue and can only be achieved if the units are positioned correctly. These planters also act well as bench top displays along window sills.

  • Happy Plant (dracaene fragrans 'massangeana')

    Common name Chinese lucky plant or Chinese money tree

    Description A very reliable and multi-faceted variety. As a standalone plant it has great presence with its variegated foliage, it is a real space saver as its growth habit is upright and tight, fantastic in partitioned work station areas where space is at a premium.

    On Occasion they do produce sprays of fragrant flowers, these flower stems need to be removed because as the flowers begin to go over they produce copious amounts of sticky sap.

    They are fairly disease resistant and like most Dracaenas like to be kept to the dryer side of watering.

  • Zanzibar Gem (zamioculcas zamiifolia)

    Common name Zig Zag, ZZ

    Description One of the most successful and hearty plants available. The Zig Zag can survive on very little water; it has large flesh bulbous roots that can hold moisture for considerable periods of time.

    Its fleshy, high gloss foliage and thick stems give it a very lush appearance and enable this variety to stand alone as a feature despite only reaching about 700mm height. They are most affective in a large wedge shaped pot but work well in any situation or planter type.

    Some sources report that all parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested, but a number of others claim that this is a myth. They contain calcium oxalate. Needle-like calcium oxalate crystals that could irritate different sensitive skin parts, mucosa, or conjunctiva.

    Initial toxicological experiment conducted by the University of Bergen in 2015 on extracts from Z. zamiifolia using brine shrimp as a lethality assay did not indicate lethality to the shrimps even at concentrations of extracts up to 1 mg/mL providing disproving evidence for the assumption of Z. zamiifolia's toxic character. The scientists conducting the experiment found that "On the contrary, it could appear as though the extract contributed to improvements in the vitality of the larvae".

  • Bromeliads:(Bromeliaceae Guzmania)

    Common name: Brom

    Description Bromeliads are members of a plant family known as Bromeliaceae with over 2700 described species in approximately 56 genera. The most well-known bromeliad is the pineapple. The family contains a wide range of plants including some very un-pineapple like members such as Spanish Moss (which is neither Spanish nor a moss).  In general, they are inexpensive, easy to grow, require very little care, and reward the grower with brilliant, long lasting blooms and ornamental foliage. They come in a wide range of sizes from tiny miniatures to giants. They can be grown indoors in cooler climates and can also be used outdoors in temperate areas. With few exceptions, the flower stalk is produced from the centre of the rosette. With rare exceptions, bromeliads only flower a single time. Once the plant stops producing leaves and produces its flower, it will not start making leaves again. It will, however, vegetatively produce new plantlets called "offsets" or "pups". These plants will feed of the "mother" plant until they are large enough to set roots of their own and survive as a separate plant. The mother may sometimes survive a generation or two before finally dying off. Pups are usually produced near the base of the plant - inside the sheath of a leaf. Sometimes, however, pups may be produced on long stolons or at the top of the flower spike of the mother plant. The green, leafy top of a pineapple is in fact a pup that may be removed and planted to start a new plant.

    These are a specialized option and only used as features on receptions desks and due to their cost are slightly more expensive to hire compared to the plants in the standard range.
