Lucky Bamboo

If you want to add greenery to the darker parts of your reading desk or workstation, lucky bamboo is your ideal plant.

This is my most favorite plant.

All houses in earlier times had a tulsi plant growing in the verandah. Tulsi plant purifies the indoor air leaving the people in the house with a renewed sense of vigour and energy. It doesn’t need much care but a few hours of direct sunlight every day are a must.
