Living in a flat with no garden, I am forever on the look out for the easiest to keep houseplants, which don’t rely on direct bright sunlight. I’ve always depended on faux plants to add a spot of green to our flat as I struggle to keep real plants alive due to the lack of light. I’m admittedly not the biggest fan of faux plants, as they just don’t have that feeling of something natural and living.
We have quite limited window space so I’m always looking for new low light houseplants. Whilst these plants don’t require bright, direct sunlight, they do require in direct sunlight, so be wary of where you place them. I’ve found we get the best results in our kitchen as we get sunlight all day.
Check out these 5 low light houseplants that are hard to kill. There is definitely an indoor plant out there for everyone, trust me, I’m not the green fingered but I love my plant babes.
I love keeping succulents, not only are the super cute and come in a huge range of species, they are really easy to look after ~ depending on the species you choose, as there are some extremely hard to keep ones out there ~ stick to succulents like Echeveria, Aloe Vera, Panda Plant and Crown of Thorns and you will be good. These are all considered easy to keep and grow indoors all year round.
Basically indestructible, if I can keep it, anyone can. This is a fan favourite and a very popular plant for offices as it thrives in areas most other plants will not. The zz plant (Zamioculcas Zamiifolia) requires very little watering and actually prefers to be kept on the drier side. This is definitely a must have plant! Bonus it’s beautiful!
Cacti are so much fun to keep, most don’t require very much maintenance or watering and they can produce some of the most beautiful flowers. I have some great luck with my Bunny Ear Cactus (Opuntia microdasys) and Mammillaria ~ definitely be careful with the Bunny Ear spines, they are minuscule and really irritate your skin. Best not to have around children or pets, unless kept up high.
The beautiful spider plant is perfect for popping in hanging baskets, it does great in both bright and low light conditions where other plants might kit thrive. I love the colours on this plants, so beautiful and will compliment all decor.
Given this name due to it closing its leaves at night. This is a extremely hardy plant can grown over 6ft with huge green/purple leaves. This low maintenance tropical plant is adaptable to almost all light conditions and is very forgiving. Of you look and listen closely you can hear and see the leaves closing at night, so cool!
