You might be under the impression that you need a ton of sun and a green thumb to keep houseplants alive, but that’s not necessarily the case. There are plenty of indoor plants out there that are easy to care for, forgiving, and low-light tolerant.
7 Indoor Plants That Can Survive In Low Light Condition
Whether you’re new to caring for plants or want to add a low-maintenance plant to your collection, these low-light houseplants thrive in shadier rooms and don’t need direct sunlight to grow. Here is the houseplants list!
1. Devil’s Ivy
This plant (aka pothos) gets its name from the fact that it grows vines even in the worst conditions. That can be bad if it’s planted outdoors where it can choke out other plants, but for growing inside, it’s perfect.
2. Sago Palm
If you’ve ever dreamed of having a palm tree as part of your decor, look no further. It might not be quite as tall as the ones in Beverly Hills, but it’s way cuter (and easier to maintain).
3. Weeping Fig Tree
Don’t let the sad name turn you off. This quick-growing tree adds some life to any room in the house and requires little more than the occasional trim and some regular watering.
Didn’t expect to find a tropical plant on this list? This houseplant can actually survive on florescent light alone (!) and thrives in humid conditions, like bathrooms.
5. Spider Plants
The spider plant is so named because of its spider-like plants, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on the web. Spider plants can be grown as hanging or trailing plants, in baskets, or pots. They will survive for a long time in less-than-ideal light conditions, including artificial light.
6. Golden Pothos
If you’re looking for a sure-thing in shady conditions, try a pot of golden pothos. It is one most popular of all house plants, thanks to attractive, durable, and easy to grow vines with smooth, leathery, heart-shaped leaves.
Not all ferns will thrive in shady corners, but many are well suited to low-light conditions. Ferns are some of the oldest plants in the world—they have been thriving for 300 million years and grow in an astonishing array of environments.
