Choosing a plant that can thrive in the indoors, especially in a room or area with low light, is not always easy. Here are a few perfect types of indoor plants for a variety of aesthetics and levels of attention.
The Peace Lily is a plant that has beautiful blossoms that sit on top of tall stems. This flower can grow to be anywhere from one to four feet in height and can adapt to both low or filtered light environments. It doesn't need to have moist soil at all times, but does require high quality fertilizer every other month.
Lucky Bamboo is another plant that can thrive in very low lighting. This is because it naturally grows in tropical forests where light is blocked by larger trees. Lucky bamboo is small, and can have twisted or braided stems. It is best kept in rooms that have temperatures between 60 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. It can be grown in water, or moist soil.
For those people who want a buy a plant that requires little to no maintenance there is Sanservieria (or Mother-in-Law’s tongue). This plant can grow to be three feet tall and has green and white pointed leaves which grow upright from its pot. It grows slowly, but it can do so even in very low lighting, the only thing that threatens them is overwatering.
Zamioculcas is another resilient house-plant well suited for growth in low-lighted rooms. Often grown for its glossy foliage and bright hue, the Zamioculcas thrives in temperatures between 65 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and like Sanservieria it is also sensitive to over watering.
When choosing a location for these plants place them in front of a north-facing window, which will give them the perfect amount of low-to-medium light exposure!
