Anyways, for large indoors spaces (e.g., lobbies, atria), I know of pantropic types like Ficus lyrata, F. benjamina, Brassaia actinophylla, F. elastica, I hear (but haven’t seen) Persea americana, Podocarpus. I believe there could be medium-sized palms which could take the stress of containerized environments (like Veitchia merilli)… depends really on what’s available in your area.
I hope somebody could fill us in on temperate trees…
Andrew, I spoke too soon when I just posted. I have used many types of trees in temporary situations. New development prior to next phase, Home showes, and anywhere else you need a temporary verticle element. Be watchfull on the tipping propensity of heavy foliage trees. Windy conditions can wreek havoc on temporary instalations. As long as the trees get adequate water, you should be able to plant just about anything you want to. Some of my nurseries have had large trees in boxes , sometimes for years and done just fine.
