Letting your plants shrivel makes you sadder than having none at all

Devil’s ivy, weeping fig and palm trees were the most popular varieties, while a cactus was divisive and spiky snake plants and striped calathea were perceived as less beautiful.

“The neglected palm tree was significantly more stressful than all other plants.

“Sansevieria (snake plant) and calathea both had markings on their leaves that some participants found stressful as they associated them with snakes and dangerous insects or animals,” the study noted.

Previous studies have found that offices filled with plants can help people work more effectively and productively, and the study suggests managers and designers should choose carefully when choosing their strains, the authors said.

“To maximize the benefits to building occupants’ well-being, designers and installers should select healthy houseplants that people find beautiful and interesting,” the study concluded.

dr Tijana Blanusa, senior horticultural scientist at the RHS and one of the researchers involved in the study, said: “If you want to draw people back into a mall, for example, opt for rounded contours, lush foliage and avoid the extremes of shape and form , to please the general public.

“People don’t like the unhealthy crops, and for some of them it’s worse, so we need to provide them with the knowledge of how to grow the crops, or expand the variety of crops that are very easy to grow.”
