Green and Flowering Plants

Green plants as well as flowering plants can bring a more serious, studious vibe while still showing how much you care. Peace lilies and African violets offer a wonderful, consistent greenery that thrives with a minimum of care, and they will also flower at regular intervals throughout the year. Bamboo, money tree, croton plant and Chinese evergreen can all bring excellent feng shui balance to an environment, setting the stage for a successful school year for students and teachers. Palm, ficus, pothos and diffenbachia are also excellent choices for helping to create an atmosphere conducive to studying and learning.
