An indoor plant is a not a typical Office Expenses item. Buy stationery or furniture and that’s IT. You pay once, get what you need and move on. Buying a typical indoor plant is different. Ordinarily, office plants are living things meaning they can’t simply be left to their own devices. Like cars, they need constant care and can cost much more than you ever bargained for.
You could always invest in artificial plants. But they are not quite the same, and perhaps you really want that special energy that a natural plant can bring to an interior. The good news is, you now have an alternative.
A Cost-Saving New Concept
Mummie Plants are the new option for office/facilities managers who feel artificial plants are not realistic enough and real plants are too expensive to maintain. Mummie Plants are natural plants that are preserved using non-chemical techniques and locked into a perfect state of freshness. In a nutshell, they offer all the qualities of a live plant but without the growing pains.
No More Maintenance Costs
A Mummie Plant represents a one-off fixed cost – you avoid all the unexpected variable costs of maintaining an ordinary plant. Or a living interior landscape design. Ordinary plants will behave perfectly for a few months – assuming they are getting the right light, water, food and heat – but can quickly get unruly. Like any natural thing they are unpredictable, prone to growth spurts, sickness, even mood swings. Ordinary plants are hard-wired to change shape and form. You can’t prevent this. The options are: a) you buy plants that are small and hire a maintenance team to make sure they grow into a designated space or b) You buy mature plants with the optimum size and shape and hire a maintenance team to keep their growth under control. Mummie Plants are designed to save you all this extra expense and responsibility.
What You See Is What You Get
Mummie Plants are custom-sized and shaped to fit your designated spaces. You get exactly what you paid for – plants that have been sealed into a permanent state of perfection. You put them where you want them and move on – they will make no further demands on your management time or budgets. You don’t have to wait for them to grow or hope they won’t run amok. You get the instant effect you wanted – and can be sure of creating lasting good impressions.
The All-Weather Plant
Most ordinary plants need some degree of natural light, meaning their mobility is limited. Mummie Plants need no light so you can put them anywhere (bar VERY humid places). Mummie Plants are designed with staff in mind. Not every worker is lucky enough to work in a room with a view. But they can now have plants to brighten up their day whether they work in a windowless office, basement or warehouse. In a country where sunlight can be rare a shiny, happy Mummie Plant can be just the thing to give your people a lift.
