Plants That Work In Low Light


Choose a pretty pot, an empty corner and enjoy the benefits and beauty of houseplants!

 

 

I Love Plants, they bring calm and beauty to our environment. The benefits of houseplants go way beyond aesthetics and appearance. Studies have shown that  indoor plants are good for our health! They release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide which freshens our air and eliminates harmful toxins. Research has also proven that indoor plants improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels and boost our moods ~ making them perfect for our home and work space. Greenery and nature help us feel more relaxed and at ease which elevates our everyday frame of mind!

 You may think that if you don't have a sunny window, you can't enjoy the beauty and benefits of houseplants. Not true. Here are a few plants that thrive in low light conditions and are easy to grow:

 

ZZ Plant ~ This tropical perennial plant has upright, glossy foliage, is slow growing and pushes the low light limit to its extreme.


Snake Plant ~ Performs well in dry spells and handles moderate to low light with ease.


Ferns ~ Many plants in the Fern family are good options for low light situations. They need consistently moist soil and low to medium light.


Philodendron ~ Medium to low light, prefers to be kept dry between waterings.


Peace Lily ~ Moderate to low light and moist soil. Reblooms several times a year.


Other low light options include: Chinese Evergreen, Dumb Cane, Spider Plant, Parlor Palm,

Dragon Tree & the Rubber Plant.
