However, before you pick up just any plant, you need to take a look at your growing space. How much light does your office get? You can find a plant that needs little light, of course—just make sure to adapt the plant to the sun available. And learn the water needs of whatever plant you choose, too, so that you can keep it properly hydrated.

First, you should pick a nice spot in your office. Make sure that sunlight visits your plants everyday. You should also pick an appropriate container for your plant. It should not be too big neither should it be too small. It should also look good. Also, ask yourself if you are willin to spend some time on those plants everyday at your office. Choose good potting soil that is able to supply much needed nutrients to the plants everyday. Lastly, don't forget to water them even during a holiday!
