Which plants are best for the office?

Which plants give off positive energy?
Feng shui plants are an easy, natural way to bring vibrant chi to your office. Try a pothos, which feng shui expert Anjie Cho says is great for beginners and can help promote softness and harmony in your work area. You can also go for a money tree plant, which is said to bring luck, wealth and prosperity to its owner — and on top of that, it does well with infrequent watering and indirect light, too.
