Our favorite indestructible office plants.

The Cast Iron Plant

An indoor plant that thrives in dark, drafty corners, the Cast Iron Plant (aspidistra elatior) is one tough cookie, earning its name from the sheer resilience of its fronds. This plant simply requires a bit of water once a week, but otherwise and with minimal care will survive and thrive for many, many years to come.

The Pothos is a fabulous low-light plant for offices with little or no sun.

The Zanzibar Gem

For care-takers that often forget to water, the Zanzibar Gem (zamioculcas) is the perfect plant. This plant stores water in its roots, which means it can go over a month without any water. It can also survive in low light, though it will grow much faster in bright indirect light.

The Zanzibar Gem is a great low light plant perfect for offices with no sun.

The Cascading Pothos

If you’re looking for a fast-growing plant that will literally remind you when to water, the Cascading Pothos (epipremnum aureum) is your best bet. These plants need nothing more than water once every week or so, and will start to shrivel when they get extra thirsty. Worry not! Water this plant and watch it within hours spring back to life.
