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.


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 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zamioculcas 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

    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! Jul 19 '12 at 20:36
