Plants at Work Equals 12% Less Stress

I could not agree more! A few plants in the workplace mean 12% less stress according to NPR. Studies show that folks think more creatively when surround with flowers and plants.  Perfect timing for me to share our new plant section at the Princeton Store. Just this week Designer Alexis and I re-organized the store to allow us to display a wider selection of plan t material for home and office.  In addition to tropical plants in all sizes we now carry succulents, air plants, blooming plants, money trees, lucky bamboo,  orchids, hanging baskets and floor sized plants .We're also now carry accessories such as hanging globes, feeders and even accessories such as terrarium containers, mosses and stones to allow folks to make their own planters at home.  Not up for creating your own planter or terrarium. No worries, we can do it for you in your vase or ours! Remember, having plants in the office lowers your stress by 12% 

Bring in the Plants to Freshen the Air - By Customer Care Coordinator Alanna

Indoor plants are a healthy and natural way to filter the air. They help create oxygen and reduce airborne toxins, such as formaldehyde, benzene and trichloroethylene.  These toxins can be found in (but are not limited to) wallpapers, paints, plywood paneling, glues, furniture waxes and polishes, carpet cleaners, gasoline, plastics, detergents and fabric softeners. NASA did a study a few years on ways to reduces toxins in the air. They compiled a list of everyday plants that help purify the air you breath in your home or office.  Some of the top winners are: Peace Lily ( Spathiphyllum) Red-Edged Dracaena (Dracaena Marginata) Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata) Chinese Evergreen (Algaonema Crispum) What is a Dish Garden?

Each time, they practically flew off the shelves with bromeliads, violets and mini calla lily plants being the best sellers.  Imagine Designer Norman's face when this new Terrarium House arrived on Friday. He went right to work creating a little garden inside. This one is quite large and sells for 159.95 so if you are looking for a unique and special gift idea, this might be the perfect thing for you. These pretty gardens are not available on our website but we'd be happy to create one just for you so give us a call at 609-520-2005.  This morning new tropical plants arrived including these mini bromeliads and they are just so colorful.
