Top 5 Easy-to-Grow Low Light Houseplants

Terrariums and dish gardens brighten homes in any season. Choosing the best plants for indoors is worry-free when you use the handy tips in this guide.

Small Plant Terrarium Basics

Here are basic guidelines to consider when trying to choose the best plants for a small plant terrarium.

  • Focus on low light houseplants that stay small in height, grow slowly, and spread very little.
  • Avoid low light plants with invasive tendencies like mint or English ivy; they may overtake the terrarium.
  • Choose hardy small interior plants, that are low maintenance, and able to survive if they are neglected.
  • Purchase readymade terrariums or indoor greenhouses, or repurpose an existing container to make a dish garden.
  • Key features to focus on are adequate drainage and a means of maintaining appropriate humidity levels.
  • Determine the type of soil or growth medium, water requirements, and other specifics by the type of houseplants you choose.

Best Plants

Philodendrons (philodendron scandens) are the best variety for indoor gardening at any skill level. They are low light houseplants, easy to maintain, and thrive regardless of whether they receive tender loving care or utter neglect. Philodendrons are indigenous to tropical areas and prefer medium light and humidity. With an average full-grown height of about twelve inches, they are just right for indoor greenhouses.

Prayer plants (maranta leucoreura) are a nice addition with philodendrons or golden pothos. Although Prayer plants prefer high humidity, using them with other flowers, plants, or greenery generates sufficient humidity. They are small in height, about six to twelve inches, and are easy-care plants.

Golden Pothos (scindapsis aurea) is a showy indoor plant boasting beautiful green leaves with cream-colored stripes and marbling. Like philodendrons, Golden Pothos grow easily for anyone, thrive on medium light and humidity, but survive neglect. Pinch back new growth to control the shaping of the plant.

Parrot Pitcher plant (sarracenia psittacina) is a tiny carnivorous plant with intense brilliant coloration; red-veined leaves with white spots. The head of this houseplant looks like a parrot, hence the name. It is a rare and unique eye-catching plant adding pizzazz to otherwise common garden-variety terrariums.
