What can I grow in a sealed office environment with no natural light or airflow?

Can anyone recommend a plant that do reasonably well in an office environment please?

The office is well lit but I am a good 10m away from any natural source of light.

Bonus points to something that would fruit or at least provide some colour.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This answer and the links are very similar and may be of assistance… – kevinsky Jul 17 '12 at 14:18
Thanks for that, I'm not quite sure how I missed that question. – Rob Forrest Jul 17 '12 at 14:31

The other thread included a very good list, but I have one more to add - Zamioculcas, also called "ZZ plant". I have one at home that was about 5 feet from a window, and doing very poorly. I moved it to a corner that is about 20 feet from the window and gets no direct sun, and now it is thriving. Very hardy, likes to be neglected.

Good answer here is a link for more details I have seen more of these in interior landscapes the last few years so you should be able to find it at greenhouses and nurseries – kevinsky Jul 19 '12 at 17:42
That's a great suggestion Michelle, thanks. It looks like you can pick these up from Ikea too. There's my Saturday morning sorted out! – Rob Forrest Jul 19 '12 at 20:36
