Researchers at Texas A&M University in the United States examined correlations between plants and productivity in the workplace. They created three different workspaces: one with flowers and plants, one with a sculpture, and one area with no decorative embellishments.

After having research participants work in all three environments, they found that both men and women demonstrated more innovative thinking and solved more problems while they worked in the space that included flowers and plants.
