There are certain standard go-to plants that florists and interior designers depend on for simple, clean lines, bold green foliage, and easy no-nonsense maintenance. Corn Plants, Dracaena Marginatas, Snake Plants, Pothos, and Janet Craigs are wonderful, low-maintenance indoor plants that are generous and patient with humans and tolerate the confinement of our stuffy corporate offices and studio apartments.
Sometimes, however, you need a little drama to make your life more exciting. I’ve come across four exciting plants in the past few days that I love, and that don’t always come to mind for New York florists. Try incorporating these green goddesses into your corporate offices and apartments for a little extra flair!

Imagine my pleasant surprise on a recent visit when I walked into a plant-filled urban gardening oasis in NYC! Beautifully displayed green, glossy plants did wonders to make the apartment feel cozy, cool and inviting. I got her to share some of her plant care advice with me:
Choose Gorgeous, Low-Maintenance Indoor Plants
Zamioculcas zamifoia: Lisa’s beautiful “ZZ plant” is a good choice, because these plants are good-looking, have a unique shape, and are very easy to maintain. Plant care is a cinch: they don’t require much water and are broad-spectrum plants that can tolerate direct sun or shade.

One aspect of my job is to visit offices around New York City and troubleshoot indoor office plant problems. I’ve noticed a singular phenomenon among many office-workers: an absolute obsession with the
