Indoor office plants can attract a whole host of annoying insect pests in your interior plant office environment.

Weekly visual checks by our staff and the application of insect parasites and insect predators can quickly eradicate these little pests. An example of a beneficial insect predator PDI applies to insect infested interior green office plants is p.permilis (red -orange) preying on a two spotted mite.

Two-spotted spider mites (Tetranychus urticae) and several other pest mites are the target food of P. persimilis ( orange below photo), which will consume 5-10 pest adults or up to 20 pest eggs/day.

When we think of adding a colorful accent to our indoor office plants we often think about cut flowers or a flowering potted plant. Actually there is another option. Tropical foliage plants that have beautiful colored leaves. If your office has the right conditions, bright light and warm temperature, there is an unlimited selection of plants that have colorful foliage and variegated leaves. Crotons, Cordyline, Rex begonias, Stromanthe are just a few that can brighten your office with some color. We use many of these on locations in the Boston metro area. Colored leafy botanicals have unlimited plant possibilities.
