    I said spec damnit! - me an office plant.

    Thats right, I want an office plant.

    But what species are the best? The look the nicest? What are the most unique, etc etc?

    I've got a spider plant. They don't look fantastic but they're really easy to look after. They can go for weeks with out watering.

    Ever thought of a fake one? I had a look at one point and there are some very good ones about for maybe only twice what a decent real one costs.

    I'd really like a real one. As it would be nice for it to grow through the summer.

    Money plants are supposed to be lucky. And don't need much looking after at all.

    i have a peace lily, (she's called cole)
    really pretty plant with big, flat, bright green leaves and delicate, white, leaf like flowers.
    she's taken a bit of a beating - i'm often away monday to friday, so she sometimes goes a while without water
    she gets a bit sad/droopy looking if she gets cold (i leave her on the window sill)
    but always revivies back to full health

    orchids are great house plants, gorgeous too - the only reason i don't have one is the price (poor student)

    i love plants, and yeah, always real over fake :)
