THE WELL JAR Time to go all Alan Titch­marsh on your desk

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

Bio­philia is spread­ing in the work­place. But be­fore you panic-dash to the GP or call the po­lice, this is nei­ther an ill­ness nor some­thing dis­graced TV pre­sen­ters are ac­cused of – it’s our need to be near na­ture. Those who work among it re­port a 15% higher level of well­be­ing and cre­ativ­ity* – and cut­ting-edge com­pa­nies have cot­toned on. Ama­zon’s new meet­ing rooms house 400 dif­fer­ent species of plant, and Ap­ple is plan­ning 8,000 trees at its Cal­i­for­nia cam­pus. Bring this to your own desk with a pothos plant. It can sur­vive in air-con, grow in a jar, and ab­sorb tox­ins. Plus, it’s hardy. So even you can’t kill it.
