Need to spruce up a room that doesn’t get much natural sunlight? Try these houseplants.
The following varieties are known to cope well in low light conditions:
1. ZZ Plant (Zamioculcasi)
One of the toughest plants around, sometimes described as ‘impossible to kill’! It’s a great plant to decorate your home with. Its lush foliage adds to its overall sturdiness.
2. Prayer Plant (Maranta leuconeura)
At night, the leaves of this plant fold, resembling praying hands. The prayer plant is also admired for its oval leaves and pink veins. It enjoys bright, indirect sunlight but also tolerates low light, making it suitable for most rooms in your home.
3. Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema)
Native to South-East Asia, the Chinese Evergreen is very easy to grow and care for, bringing a sense of calm to whichever room its placed in. It also acts as a natural air purifier and its decorative leaves are a beauty to behold.
4. English Ivy (Hedera helix)
If you’re looking for a perennial that’s hardy and tolerant of several lighting conditions, then English Ivy is a great choice.
It tends to flourish in shady areas where there’s no risk of the foliage being burned. This plant is native to lightly wooded areas, so it enjoys only partial exposure to sunlight.
5. Parlour Palm (Chamaedorea elegans)
A species of small palm tree native to rainforests in Southern Mexico and Guatemala. The Parlour Palm has been a popular houseplant since Victorian times and is known for being easy to maintain.
Even though it’s native to warm humid environments, it can still flourish in more temperate climates.
