Desktop set likes
Keep their leaves nice and fresh with regular misting. It will make the air around them more humid.
Bertie needs regular watering to stay moist. Pippa, Susie and Penny and Suri are fine drying out a bit.
Susie, Pippa and Bertie are all fine in anything from bright light to shade. Penny and Suri like quite bright light.
You could make your desk extra jungly by putting all the plants there, but spreading plants around the room will create a greater sense of calm.

About this set
Studies have shown that plants in the workplace make people perform better. And, of course, they also look really nice. Create a sense of calm when you’re working from home by surrounding your desk or office with greenery. And they’ll never invite you to an unnecessary meeting.
This set without pots includes:
Susie - Her long, slender leaves earned her the common name snake plant. She has a really stylish sculptural shape that works in any interior. And she really will live anywhere. She hardly ever needs watering and she’ll work with whatever light you have, from shade to sunshine.
Pippa - The peace lily is as strong as she is beautiful. Her big dark green leaves are joined by simple white flowers in spring. You’ll know when it’s time to water her because her leaves will flop, then quickly perk up after a drink. Please note that while she’ll be happy in shade she’ll produce a lot more flowers in brighter light.
Bertie - Popularly known as a Boston fern, Bertie is ideal for those darker rooms. He will be totally fine in shade. He likes to be misted to keep his leaves moisturised.
Penny- Everybody loves Penny the Chinese money plant and her cute round leaves. She stays compact, so would be great on smaller desks. She likes a bright spot, but out of direct sun.
Suri - She’s a cute little succulent, which means she needs almost no care at all. Those chubby leaves hold loads of water, so she only needs a drink when her soil has gone completely dry.
The set with pots also includes:
Clay pot - Clean lines and hard-wearing materials make this an indoor plant pot built to last.
Ceramic glazed pot - The finish on these cute and colourful pots gives them a stylish vintage feel.
Concrete pot - The understated beauty of these pots works in every room and with every plant.
