When it comes to houses, cars and even office plants, there has always been a perception that owning is better than hiring.

If you own something, you can do whatever you want with it; paint it, put holes in it or knock it down.

So sourcing your own office plants may seem like the more practical option. After all, how hard can it be?

To help aid your research, we’ve highlighted the main benefits of why you might hire versus own your own office plants.


A quick Google shows one indoor plant pot alone can cost anywhere from $80 to $5,000 … and that’s without any actual plants.

Then indoor and outdoor pots are not the same and some even require 4-5 men to move.

So there are more factors to consider than price when purchasing a pot.

Plants themselves vary in quality too. Buying from Bunnings versus your local nursery will impact both price and plant longevity.

The up-fronts costs of owning your own pots and plants is also not unnoticeable. So suddenly, the concept of office and indoor plant hire (which is charged at a weekly rate) becomes very appealing.


It is one thing to pick up some office plants from your local nursery; it is another thing to keep up them alive.

Office plant hire means you get the plants that you want, delivered where you want, with round-the-clock maintenance.

Then, before the plants date or wilt, they will be replaced. All this can happen without leaving your desk chair.

The hassle-free process of plant hire is a huge benefit. So you can have your greenery and enjoy it too!

Office plant hire can also be very flexible. If you decide to relocate your office or even just change its décor, the plants will either be moved, replaced or sometimes both depending on your new requirements.


Plant hire companies have access to a plethora of information on industry trends. We know which pots and plants are better suited for different office shapes, sizes, and colours. As well as which ones grow best under artificial light.

We also have access to many incredible plants you wouldn’t find on a shelf.

Hiring office plants is definitely the easiest way to get the best of the best without any added stress. So if your office is lacking a little colour, and you’re lacking time, then let the magic of office plant hire solve all your greenery problems.
