Best indoor plants with little light

Zamioculcas plantIndoor plants not only purify the surrounding air but also enhance the décor of your house. In fact, you will be amazed with the number of benefits that a houseplant can bring to your life. Research shows that keeping plants indoors can purify the air and get rid of harmful chemicals that are emitted by certain household products. Toxins like benzene, ammonia and formaldehyde are absorbed and in turn replaced with oxygen. Plants can liven up any space, be it your home or office and their presence is known to even increase productivity of humans. But, if your house doesn't have access to much sunlight, fret not, you can opt for plants that don't need sunlight. Now, we all know that all plants need sunlight. So, when I say 'no sunlight', I am referring to plants that require minimum or very less sunlight. These plants can survive for weeks without direct sunlight.Boston fern o get some sunlight once in a while.

Since most of the indoor plants are tropical plants, they thrive in low, indirect and bright lights. Normally, direct sunlight is about 32, 000-100, 000 lux i.e. the unit of illuminance. 100 lux or less is considered low intensity or indirect lighting, and about 400 lux would be bright lighting. Anything above 1000 lux is considered high intensity lighting. So, plants preferring low light should be kept in places which don't receive direct sunlight. For indirect sunlight, plants should be placed at least 3 feet away from windows streaming with direct sunlight.Peace Lily ght can be placed next to a sunny window.

ZZ Plant


Description: Zamioculcas zamiifolia or the ZZ plant, as it is most commonly known, is native to East Africa. This tropical ornamental plant is preferred by homeowners mostly for their dark rich foliage and really easy maintenance. It can grow to a height of about 3 feet and has glossy, dark green pinnate leaves. These plants cleanse the air and are excellent for your home or office.
Watering: Water only when the top soil dries. Never let the soil be soggy, as it rots the rhizomes.

Placement: Keep the plant in bright or low light. Direct sunlight tends to burn the leaves, turning them brown.

This is NOT my post, but thought it was an interesting way to start the morning:
I made a GREAT habitat out of a very large rubermade trough for a baby tortoise I rescued from CL. She was in bad shape when I got her, but now she is healthy as heck and active and sweet. She is palm sized and eats like a piggy. Her house is huge, great, and properly lit and heated with a great water dish, hide-a-log plants, infra red light and uva-uvb light. I used organic potting soil as subsrate and she loves it. Over 300$ was spent on her HOUSE ALONE... I am looking for someone who ALWAYS wanted a sulcata and will take excellent care of her and give her a large yard to play in in 20 yrs when she has outgrown her indoor home
