Best Houseplants for little light

Mother-in-Laws TongueHere are the most popular and easy to care for low light houseplants. If you want to grow plants in a low light or shady area be sure to choose those that thrive in those lighting conditions.

When choosing plants for inside the home, you can’t just pick a plant you like. You have to take several things into consideration, such as size and ease of care. But, the most important factor in choosing a houseplant is the lighting conditions of your home. Even if you provide the perfect amount of water and fertilizer, without adequate light, a houseplant can’t thrive.

Growing healthy houseplants that flourish and give you years of enjoyment, depends on knowing which plants can survive under poor lighting conditions. Often, people think that they just simply don’t have a “green thumb” because they can’t keep a houseplant alive. When in reality, the plant has died because it didn’t receive enough light.

Just because your home doesn’t have large windows that let lots of sunlight into your home, it doesn’t mean that you have to settle for silk plants. In fact, there are several plants that are perfectly happy living in minimal light. If you choose the right houseplants you might just find that you do indeed have a “green thumb”!

Mother-in-Law Tongue

The Mother-in-Law Tongue has long, pointy leaves and is very sturdy. It’s very adaptable and can withstand a little negligence. Often called the snake plant, it is ideal for low light areas although the plant will not produce blossoms without adequate light. The main enemies of this plant is too much water and freezing temperatures.

Cast Iron Plant

The Cast Iron plant grows to approximately two feet in height and has long, arching leaves. It’s a great plant for any low light area and it requires very little care to grow. It’s just as happy in a warm area as it is in a cooler area. While the plant can tolerate dry soil, it does much better if you keep the soil evenly moist. The main cause of death for this plant is rotting roots from too much water. It needs to be fertilized about once a month. But, during the growing phases in spring and summer, it can be fertilized every two weeks.

Dragon Tree

The dragon tree is another really good choice for low light conditions. The plant features spiky green leaves that are often trimmed in color along the edges. The plant is not at all fussy and will do well with normal home temperatures and low light. Water the dragon tree when the soil is dry 1/3 of the depth of the pot. The plant only needs fertilized about once a year.
