The Office

My office, that is. I have started using that windowless cubicle in GSB 562 quite a bit in light of the sheer madness that is graduate school.

So, does anyone know about any plants that thrive in such conditions? Again: I have no window, and therefore no sunlight. I somehow have the feeling plant is greek for "all of us need sunlight", but there might be some sort of exception that has excaped my attention. After all, there is plenty of fluorescent light in here!

And please don't bother to suggest fake plants. That already *is* plan B.

Hmmm...wonder what they'd say if I got a betta fish?

How windowless? I can see windows from my cubicle, but I'm certainly not at all near them. However, the following plants seem to thrive quite nicely in such conditions:

-spider plant (and it's easy to propagate!)
-aloe vera (surprisingly enough)

and some other indoor plants and trailing things that propagate easily.

Chris is right about the spider plants. They do propagate very easily.

I would also suggest buying a Chinese Evergreen. They do thrive in artificial light but remember not to water it too much. They do not thrive on a lot of water.

I would also suggest a cactus that blooms red flowers. They also do well in artificial light.

Actually, why don't we go to a plant shop together because I cannot remember the names of the plants I would buy at the job I had in Grande Prairie.

Oh, yes, let's!

I don't know if there's one within walking distance, but I think we'd have to drive anyways because we have to transport the plants, I guess. I'll be sure to invite you out for coffee or lunch in exchange if you can drive. I don't want to abuse my friends.

But yes, I'd really like that. Plant store trip!

Done. Let's meet at the Power plant coffee house, and then let's go from there.

My mom has a plant that has some sort of supergrowth regeration power, it just keeps multiplying, she was actually wondering if you wanted it.
