Good Indoor Plant no Sunlight

It's been years now that our dear Abby has thought she had a black thumb just because every time we gave her a plant,even if it is a very hearty plant,she seemed to kill it. But one step into Abby's magnificent home will reveal that it's not her fault! Her apartment just doesn't get enough light for the plants she wants to grow.So if you're in a similar position,feeling that you have no luck with plants,don't worry. It's pretty hard to grow plants in the dark,but you'll increase your odds if you pick plants that don't need much light. You will be sad if you try to grow succulents in the dark. Also,we tried to pick plants that don't remind you of the doctor's office or,really,any office for that matter. If you're looking for more common house plants,try this post about hard to kill houseplants.

5 Interesting Low Light Plants:

•are a great option because they have frilly fun leaves that vary from the usual thick leaves of indoor plants. Most Ferns do well inside with low light (and ferns look great in terrariums) so check out others like Silver Lace Fern with variegated leaves.
•These plants offer a wide range of leaf colors and shapes and if you get a Rex Begonia,it will live quite happily without any direct light. Just make sure you don't overwater it. Soak it and let it dry out,soak and dry.
•Mint will normally grow in a bog,so as long as you keep it moist and it gets a little bit of light,you should be able to harvest mint for tea,for fruit salads and it has the added advantage of giving off a nice scent indoors.
•This plant has an old fashioned look that sort of reminds us of gramma,but consider a new way to grow it,like as a part of a vertical garden.
•If you seriously have very little light,consider creating a terrarium of moss. It just needs moisture and glances of light,position it near a window where it will get bounced light and it should thrive. If you don't know where to start,consider a kit to get you going.

No way is BC bud the best. Not possible. The marijuana plant thrives on a dense, moist environment and intense sunlight with a long extended sun season - i.e. Hawaii, Mendocino, Thailand, and the jungles of Columbia. British Columbia does not have the angle of the sun that's required to contain a high amount of available BTU's because it's too far north.
Indoor growing can actually produce very hiqh quality pot IF the grower knows how to spike the plants with the right chemicals in the watering system. However, indoor growing can't produce the same amount of buds that outdoor growing can produce in the same square foot area.
