15 Easy-to-Care-for Plants to Liven Up Your Office Space

Office life usually consists of being so busy that you forget to eat lunch, wrap yourself in a blanket in freezing temperatures, and completely abandon everything the second 5 p.m. rolls around on Friday. But that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate a little life into your space. A plant – especially a low-maintenance houseplant that can thrive in less light and bounce back after a lack of watering or two – is a great way to add color and warmth to even the dullest of cubicles. If you stick with a low-maintenance plant, you won’t have to worry about its survival on top of your workload, which is definitely important.
