Default Slow Growing Plants for Indoor Office (Albany New York)

I am stuck in an office for most of my day and I love my view but I am getting so tired of it. I am looking for some slow growing plants for my indoor office in Albany New York. I want something tropical but yet slow growing enough to not hit my ceilings ever. My ceilings are about 12-15 feet tall and I have two sides of just pure windows. I was thinking of actually looking into doing a green wall. A wall just filled with plants and vines. Its going to look spectacular. But now I would love to get a few plants for the sides and corners of my office.

Ever since my complete office went green and decided to purchase a bunch on tiny plants for their desk,(Table Top Plants) it inspired me to do a room of nothing but greenery but not an over kill of coarse.

I attached two images of what I am referring to in regards of the green living wall. Imagine that with two windows that are about 15 ft by 12 feet long and tall.


Now I would like a palm tree or maybe something that looks like a palm tree but that will not give me any problems. I hate problems. Need something care free but I want it alive.

Thanks for your help guys.

Jim

Default Green Wall (Living Wall)

Love those photos of what you are trying to do in your office. Definitely encourage you to do so. If your looking for a palm tree or plant to go in your office that will never reach the ceiling or basically never even get close to the ceiling you can take a look at the Ponytail Palm tree, The Sago Palm, The Areca Palm, Lady Palm and the Parlor Palm. This is a great selection of palms that may work for what you are doing.

How is Albany New York? I had a job offer their but my wife opened up my eyes to what we already had and to really think about what will happen. Well not to get personal here just wanted to see how life is in Albany NY.

BTW if your doing the living wall, I would love to see what your office looks like. It might inspire me to do my basement like it.

Hi Jim, I actually have an interiorscape business serving the capital region! I would be more then happy to visit your office and review what would best serve your needs for the palms and the green wall. There are multiple systems available.

Default Interior Scape

Hey Karen. Thank you so much. I went to your site to see some ideas but I went to see your photo gallery and there were no photos. Do you have any examples of green walls you have done before.

Thats because there is not a single green wall in our area yet that I know of, so yours would be the first!
Because of the water needs/use and weight issues the building owner would need to be involved as well.
