Who doesn’t love to fill up their home with greenery? But let us be honest, keeping plants alive in busy urban life is more challenging than the magazines make it look like. That’s where low-light indoor plants come into play.
Even if your home doesn’t get much sunlight, you can still keep low light indoor plants alive. Low light plants can survive and thrive without direct sunlight and often require less maintenance than regular plants.
Check out these resilient and beautiful low light indoor plants to turn your home into a green haven.
What Are Low Light Indoor Plants?
Low light indoor plants are plants that can survive with no direct sunlight. Many such plants even get burned when they get direct sunlight. As a result, these plants are perfect for a home that doesn’t get much sunlight. Placing low light indoor plants in a room with windows is best. But keep them a few feet away from direct light.
Also, let us remember low light doesn’t mean any light. Even low light plants need light to photosynthesize to survive.
If your room doesn’t get any natural light or doesn’t have windows, give your low light indoor plants artificial light. LED light, fluorescent light, or incandescent bulbs are good options for low light indoor plants.
