I need some ideas for good indoor plants that would do well in our office. We have a big window, but no direct light. We have flourescent lights inside. The ivy seems to do pretty well, but I'd like to get something different. We have several of those already.

Any ideas?

What way does the window face? If it's a North facing window violets will do well but they will only bloom in north light. Although if they aren't that close to a different window and just get the diffused light they might bloom.

It faces NorthEast, sort of. Hard to explain. I love African Violets and I thought about getting one of those and seeing how it did. If it didn't do well here, I have a window I know it would do well in at home, because MIL had beautiful ones there.

Giant bamboo needs indirect light and only needs water when the level get low. This plant would do great in a location like that. Also I know I will spell this wrong vermilliad??? The plants in the malls that are kinda of rubbery with a spikey blooming flower on top.
