Hi all...

My new office has 2 frosted windows that give relatively bright filtered light. It is airconditioned, so I assume episcias dun do well coz of low humidity, even tho I would SO like to have them and their pretty flowers.

Any plants to recommend? Nothing too difficult to keep. Mostly coz I'm the only one who cares for the plants and I'm really a beginner. *lol*

Thanks.

Yes, AVs do very well with filtered sunlight and cool temperatures. These conditions also keep pests at bay. Just check out the AV threads. They also don't need frequent watering if you put them on wicking. Good for those long leave periods.

However, you may need to bring them home every now and then as they do need repotting every now and then, especially if you propagate.

Oooo ok. I'll get a few of those, what else does well? Gloxinias? Sinningias? What about episcias, are they a real no-no?

I got some ZZ plants... are they ok?
