NYC Office Plant Maintenance Service

Keep Your Office Plants Healthy & Beautiful

Buying plants for your office is an investment. When properly taken care of, they can transform your office space into a more peaceful & calming environment…

But left in the wrong hands, they can wither and die— and that send the wrong message to employees and visitors alike.

Don’t let your investment go to waste by trusting your plants care to anyone other than an expert. Instead, let us come by and do all the hard work of watering, clipping, fertilizing, and more. We know exactly how to take best care of your plants to keep them looking healthy & beautiful all year long.

Why It’s So Important to Take Great Care of Your Plants

They Represent Your Company

The appearance of your office is a reflection of your company, its employees, and its overall professionalism. Healthy, beautiful plants in your office send a very different message to clients than dirty, dry plants.

Healthy Plants Clean the Air

When your plants are healthy, they grow faster and are able to clean more air and produce more oxygen. This is especially important for people working in a concrete jungle.

Healthy Plants Bring Joy

It makes people happy to be around other living things—especially when those living things are thriving. It’s much better to keep your plants healthy all the time than to simply replace them once they die.

They Can Collect Dust

Most people never realize it, but plants can collect a huge amount of dust—which spells big trouble for people with dust allergies. This makes plants similar to carpets, which get cleaned all the time.


Caring for Plants Means More Than Pouring Water

watering office plantMost people don’t realize it, but the most common cause of plants over-watering them.

When you leave plant care to someone in your office, your plants get inconsistent attention--and almost always--far too much water.

Only a plant specialist, like the experts here at My City Plants, can really decide when (and how much) water to give a plant to keep it at optimal health.

Proper plant maintenance is not a 5-minute job. On average it takes a professional about 5 hours to properly care for all the plants in a medium-sized office building, including cleaning the leaves (another highly important and time-consuming activity that is vital to the health of your plants).

Decorating your office with beautiful, calming plants is an investment. Take care of that investment by making sure your plants get the care they need, so they can remain healthy & beautiful for years to come. ​

Caring for Plants Is More Difficult In an Office Setting

Even though our plants are planted in self-watering planters and require much less maintenance than regular planters, they still need a lot of care.

The fact is that keeping plants alive & thriving in NYC office conditions is a lot more difficult than it is at your home, for 4 main reasons:

Different Climate

The typical office climate is not a healthy one for plants: it’s air-conditioned in the summer and in the winter it’s hot & dry from heating. On top of that, most offices turn the heat & a/c off on the weekends—which is harmful to plants (they can die from this alone).

Artificial Lighting

Most offices are dominated by artificial lighting, with real sunlight in short supply (if at all). It can be challenging to find spots for all your plants where they will look great and stay healthy. This requires the ability to know when a plant needs to be moved to a new location.

Night Cleaning

Many offices ask their cleaning companies to take care of their plants. Unfortunately, cleaning people are not equipped with the knowledge, experience, or tools to take care of plants. On top of this, cleaning staff are constantly changing—which means your plants get inconsistent care at best.


Similar to cleaning companies, many receptionists, office managers, or other staff take it upon themselves to care for the office’s plants. This results in inconsistent care that usually stops altogether when that staff member goes on vacation, leaves the company, or gets sick.

Plant Light Chart
Light Intensity Description
High Light South or southwest-facing windows. Direct sunlight.
Medium Light East or West facing windows. Partial, filtered or indirect sunlight.
Low Light North-facing windows. No more then 20 feet from the window. Bright fluorescent light at least 8-10 hours a day.

Note: if you can’t read a book as it is too dark in a certain areas than it is too dark for any plant as well.

Window direction is not the only factor to understand your light situation. What is outside the window makes a big difference. Another building, large tree, etc. will block direct light and will effect lighting environment.
