The Sergeant's purpose is to obscure direct view into my office from the window next to the door. The Sergeant is a Japanese peace lily that I purchased after looking for plants that thrive in low-light conditions and finding out that peace lilies can often thrive under nothing but florescent light. And once I found that out and remembered that it featured in Hot Fuzz OH COME ON OF COURSE I GOT ONE.
He is named Sergeant Nicholas Angel after Simon Pegg's character. He is also kind of huge because they didn't have any smaller ones that I could find.
