Transforming workplace environments with the power of plants

Since 1988, The Garden Path has been providing pots and plants to offices and workplaces across Sydney. We offer a wide range of office plant hire solutions, from vibrant tropical plants to leafy sub-tropicals and other varieties which are suitable for low light indoor settings.

While a huge number of plants can grow indoors, care is needed to select the right plants for each location. We select plants based on your tastes, how the space is used, and the available natural and artificial light. Once your plants have been installed our staff do the rest – taking care of all watering, fertilising and pruning, and rotating plants with nursery stock as needed.

If you would like a certain plant or selection of plants in your office but your workspace is poorly lit, we can rotate plants on a regular basis to keep them in the best possible condition. Moving plants from your workspace to the nursery and back again is often the best way to keep them looking healthy and lush.

The following examples represent some of the most popular and suitable plants for an indoor environment in Sydney. If you have specific preferences for interior plant rental, please get in touch to discuss your options.



Ficus originate from numerous tropical and sub-tropical locations around the world and the two most commonly used indoor are the Ficus lyrata (Fiddle leaf fig) and the Ficus elastica (Rubber plant). The Ficus lyrata has very large, textured, leathery foliage. the Ficus elastica also has large foliage however smooth and glossy in appearance. Both species enjoy bright indirect light and moderate watering.


Originating from Tropical and Sub-Tropical Africa and Asia there are 150 species of Dracaena. The most commonly used indoors include Dracaena marginata (Dragon Tree) with long thin green and red leaves, Dracaena fragrans (Happy Plant) with wider green and yellow leaves, and Dracaena deremensis (Janet Craig) with dark green leaves. Generally speaking the Dracaena fragrans and Dracaena deremensis can tolerate low light while the Dracaena marginata needs a little more light. All enjoy moderate, infrequent watering.


There is a very large range of palm species and varieties many of which are suitable for an indoor environment. Most palms are native to tropical and sub-tropical environments and are popular for their large green foliage know as fronds. Some of the most common palms used indoors are Chrysalidocarpus lutescens (Golden Cane Palm), Howeia forsterana (Kentia Palm) and Chamaedorea elegans (Parlour Palm). Each of these varieties can tolerate a range of light but will perform best in bright indirect light. Regular watering is required however the Parlour Palm will benefit from the surface of the soil drying out slightly between watering.
