Every year plants@work looks for the Favourite Office Plant from a nominated ‘long list’. Voting whittles the list down to three plants according to that year’s criteria. The short-listed three plants take their places before a panel of judges who select the winning plant for the year.
This award has been running for nine years and past winners have been:
- 2018 Monstera deliosa
- 2017 Aspidistra
- 2016 Rhipsalis
- 2015 Medinilla magnifica
- 2014 Echeveria
- 2013 Peace Lily( Spathiphylum)
- 2012 Vanda orchid
- 2011 Phalaenopsis orchid
- 2010 Beaucarnia Bonsai
The plants that get the most votes and fall into one or more of the criteria will make the short-list.
The criteria is:
- Plants that make a statement
- Plants that work well in indoor green walls
- Plants make a retro comeback
- Plants you’d like to see used more
