Indoor shade Loving plants

You bring a plant home from the nursery, lovingly replant it, place it in a sunny spot, and water it, but a week later, it dies. Sound like you? Or maybe you have a green thumb, but you don’t want plants that require a lot of time and effort. These easy to care for plants for both indoors and outdoors will help you green up your house or garden without too much effort.

Indoor Plants

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Spider plants are among the easiest house plants to grow. They are hardy, tolerate light to full sun, and can withstand neglect. The leaves of a spider plant grow up to 15 inches long and an inch or two wide. Some leaves are variegated in color while others are solid green. Mature spider plants will produce “babies”—smaller plants that grow off a shoot and produce flowers. They can be cut off and planted in their own containers.

Dragon Tree (Dracaena marginata)
The Dragon Tree, also known as a Red Edged Dracaena, resembles a small palm tree. It can grow up to 15 feet tall, and its long, slender trunk can be trained to bend. It can also be pruned to control growth. The leaves of a dragon tree are dark green with red to purplish stripes along the outer edge. New leaves grow out of the top of the leaf mass, while mature leaves on the bottom drop away. The dragon tree is best grown in bright light, but it will tolerate low light. It likes to dry out between waterings, and if allowed to wilt, it will recover. Dracaenas have been shown to help remove formaldehyde from the air.

Heartleaf Philodendron (Philodendron scandens oxycardium)
One of the toughest houseplants to kill, the heartleaf philodendron can take much abuse. The one thing it cannot tolerate, however, is cold temperatures. Its light requirements are low, and it is a very profuse spreader. The heartleaf is perfect for hanging baskets, as it has long trailing stems. It’s also attractive as a climber. Prune if you wish to control its growth.

Recomm. for shade loving plants...

It sounds like you just have an indoor garden....?
In my shady cool spots in the yard I have had great luck with 'False Nettles'. They produce lovely small blooms that last most of the 'pleasant time of year' here. They are very prolific, so you won't need to buy a lot of them. Unless you are somewhat impatient, like me, to get a nice blanket of them going. They come in a couple different color blooms. I have the white and purple variety.
A very attractive varigated leaf as well.
Good luck.

Good indoor plants for *sunny* windows?

I have a couple windows that get a few hours of direct sun in the late afternoon. I had put my shade-loving indoor plants (from my previous apartment) there, and after a while they got all dried out (OK so maybe I didn't water them more than when I'd kept em in the shade).
Someone told me that any outdoor plants can be kept near a sunny indoor window. But someone else said that only cactuses can survive in sunny indoor windows.
PS the plant will be a couple feet away from the window, but still in direct sunlight.
*Any* recommendations are most welcome! Can plants like Chinese lantern, other flowering plants, do OK? I don't really want a cactus.

Hibiscus burnt leaves

Got three nice size hibuscus in large pots who have spent most of the past year in a shady patio. So they are kinda leggy.
I brought them home and put them in an area that gets mostly shade, but then some late afternoon sun. After about four days, a lot of the leaves look sunburnt and leathery. I just read that I should sprinkle leaves top and bottom in the hotter afternoons. I noticed also when I brought my 1 gal indoor hibiscuses outdoors after their first bloom get them acclimated to the outdoors, they also got sunburned. These ARE sun loving plants? or not? None of my plants seem to like the sun at all
