It is able to thrive under the florescent lights of an office and the leaves make a spectacular display with their variegated green and yellow colour. It does not require a large amount of water and can tolerate some neglect. Make sure to place this plant in a hanging basket or on a high shelf so it is able to spread out.
The Peace Lily is another plant that does well with lower light levels. They actually prefer to not be kept in direct sunlight, so this makes them a good choice for the office. They produce lovely white flowers with beautiful green foliage. Take care not to overwater by checking the soil with your finger before you water. If your office is dry, you will also need to mist them with a spray bottle to keep their environment more humid
The Bromeliad is a plant that keeps on giving if you know what to watch for. As they age, they will put out offsets (pups) that can be separated and potted. Bromeliads come in many varieties. They require a more humid environment, so if your office is dry, you may need to water your plant more frequently. However, they do well in various levels of light. This plant may require a little more work, but it will be well worth the effort.
