Bamboo palms make great office plants
I work at a local college here and we have areca palms in the lobby and in our offices. It makes everything more lively, I brought one home that someone didnt want and then I split them up and had two plants. Bamboo palms are not high maintenance and can go at least 2 to 4 weeks without being watered and still look good. I forget to water one a couple years ago for a long time and it still looks good. I wanted to get some cold hardy palms for my landscape like the windmill or european fan palm.
