Ready to fill your office with plants? You can have your own indoor garden if your office is filled with natural light. If your office does not get a lot of light, no problem!
Here are our top recommendations for the best plants to thrive in low-light office spaces.
Spider Plants can add a tropical look to your office. You can place them on a shelf, desk, or even hang them!

Sansevieria plants are one of the most resilient plants you can get as they thrive with very little care. They are also known for their air-purifying abilities. Not only do they release oxygen during the day, but at night as well!

Pothos makes a great hanging plant that you can also train on a trellis to give a lush green look.
Place it in medium to bright indirect light.
