This Dracaena has stunning foliage with contrasting colours. It has a tropical feel and looks great in office settings.

3. Fiddle leaf fig – Ficus lyrata

7. Spider plant – Chlorophytum comosum

Spider plants are classic low-maintenance houseplants that look great in offices. They get bonus points for all the baby plants they produce – if you don’t want to leave them on there for a bushier look, people in the office could take them home and pot up their own little spider plants.

10. Yucca – Yucca elephantipes

Yuccas are gorgeous plants that love dry environments and plenty of light. If your office gets a lot of sun, this is ideal. You’ll only need to water it when most of the soil has dried out.
