One of the biggest frustrations of living in a space with limited light is the seemingly impossible task of keeping houseplants happy and not dying.
While all plants need light to survive, there are some hardy houseplants that need low light, including low-light plants, which are also easy to care for.
Few people own spaces in the home that are bathed in natural light throughout. When they want to decorate with plants, there is not enough space near the window for all the desired green plants.
Plants are needed, taking into account the functions of the space and interior design, also at points where the amount of light is not optimal for their growth.
Some plants are content with little natural light or even just artificial light. Fortunately, there are green plants that thrive in low light, which are not only content with their lot, but also grow and flourish using artificial light effectively.
Although there aren’t a huge number of green plants that thrive in low light, different types of low light plants can be found for a wide variety of indoor needs.
Low-light, easy-care plants
The easiest way to determine what you are going to do well, is to look at the natural conditions of the plant.
Succulents, cacti, and other desert dwellers are best suited for sunny locations, while Anything that grows naturally on the forest floor, under a canopy, or grows in the shade, is a candidate for low-light situations.
Here are some foolproof options for low-light spaces:
1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)
This low-light plant is at home in even the darkest corners of your home. It has a sculptural look, adds a bit of green, and seems to thrive on neglect.
2. Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
This is a popular houseplant. These interesting plants self-propagate by putting out shoots, grow well when their roots are full, and can thrive in low light conditions.
3. ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)
The ZZ plant is a hardy plant that can tolerate both low light and low watering. It is ideal for those who do not have time to take care of plants but who want to have them.
4. Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Sanderiana)
Bamboo is adaptable for dark rooms, and it is cheap and easy to find. The striking and modest “lucky bamboo” is increasingly used in interior design and in apartments that do not get enough sunlight.
It is said to attract love, wealth and other joys to your home, which you can even choose by planting the right amount of bamboo.
5. Peace Lilies (Spathiphyllum wallisii)
Known as a great plant for improving indoor air quality, the peace lily is also one of the few low-light, friendly options that also produces flowers.
Green plants placed inside the room often need additional light. However, there are some species of houseplants that can survive even in low light without becoming slimy and sloppy. Take advantage of these plants, but don’t neglect them entirely.
