The Q&A Archives: Office plant suggestions

Question: I just moved into an office that has no windows. Can you suggest some plants that will do well in florescent light alone? My personal inventory includes: Scheffleras, Oxaylis (sp?), Crown of Thorns, Ficus, Weeping Jew, Aloe, Amaryllis, Philodendrum. Will any of those work?

Answer: Wandering Jew and Philodendron, are decent choices, probably the best choices are Spider Plant, Sanseveria, Swedish Ivy, Pothos, Parlor Palm, Dieffenbachia, Chinese Evergreen, Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior), and Arrowhead Plant (Syngonium podophyllum).
