office, type of plants

I have a windowless cubicle. We have overhead ceiling fluorescent lights on all the time. I recently got a 32 watt 5000K 86 CRI 4 foot light under an overhead cabinet. What types of plants should I get? I put a peace lily under the cabinet light. If I put a plant directly under it, does it still need to be a "low light" plant?

Yes it would need to be a low light plant. Try a coleus. There are many to choose from. Don't get the sun tolerant varieties. African violets and spider plants should do ok also.
