    I also assumed that it was posted in the right forum (and not for example "Fruit and Nut Trees").
    If you can find a bright window it is possible that cacti etc. can be grown reasonably well there, but I have often seen cacti placed far away from windows in offices, and then they perish. Then there is the problem with the usually small temperature variation between day and night in offices and the fact that many windows have heat radiators beneath them, I always try to keep them at the lowest possible setting.

    lmaoooooo so now with some posts we need to look where we are before reading or helping. No...I think not Mike. Thats the responsibilty of the poster to make sure he/she tells us what he/she needs help with.

    Sorry greenboy but I find your thread post rather lazy, and lack concern for anyone trying to help.

    Yes Togata so do I.

    Poor Echinocactus grusonii (and several other) ... that is exactly what I meant, light-loving plants in far too low light.

    Not good eh?

    Just an idea for when Greenboy is away from his office Mandarin.

    I expect him to choose wisely what suits his office enviroment.

    Sometimes my thread "jumps" and go to another places in the Forum, sorry if I am not a techy, I am just a country Pennsylvania guy. So don't ask too much. I know some of you are really well educated. And we should be sensitive to people from all ways of life. Thanks for your input, I put in my office a "snake" plant under artificial light. I wonder?, so far so good. GB.

    That is a Sansevieria trifasciata, right? I have had one that stood in a quite dark corner (I did not have room for it anywhere else), but it did fine, it grew, flowered and grew some more until I barely could remove it from the pot. Chandes are good that yours will be fine.
