Definitely a pretty clever way to use plants as 'hostile architecture.'
Having a desk near the break room
can be great if you enjoy seeing your coworkers regularly, but as this guy found out, it also means your desk becomes a dumping ground for things people don't want to hold while their food heats up. His clever solution? Slowly but surely occupy all available desk space with plants.
I love this personally, because I've developed a plant obsession over quarantine and even though my desk at work is in no danger for people dumping stuff on it, I just want my own private oasis at work!
