Of course, not everyone finds it easy to look after plants. They take time as they need to be watered regularly, perhaps fed, and you need to make sure they have enough sunlight. It’s an interesting and satisfying learning curve.
However, it can also be an issue when you live in an apartment with low light levels. You’ll need to choose house plants that can flourish in low light. Fortunately, there are some great options to choose from.
Its official name is Aglaonema and it has beautiful leaves that display a variety of striking colors, including classic green, red, yellow, and even pink. It’s very hardy and needs little light or care, making it the perfect plant to brighten a dark space. If you’re a plant over but seem to kill most of them, this is a great one to try.
The Spider Plant
This plant earned the name as it looks like a mass of spiders. Its official title is Chlorophytumcomosum. The spider plant largely looks after itself. In fact, if you water it when the soil feels dry you’ll find it can flourish, even in the darkest of spaces.
You should also note it has small white flowers that hang from the plant, making it a great choice for hanging in your house.
The corn plant’s official name is Dracaena fragrans and it looks like a miniature palm tree. It can look fantastic in the corner of your room and looks like it’s hard to grow, even though it’s not!
This plant needs very little attention. It doesn’t just like low light, it hates direct sunlight! However, you should note it needs to be watered evenly and fairly regularly. But, it should never be overwatered as this will kill it.
The prayer plant is known as MarantaLeuconeura. It’s another plant that loves low light and has very colorful leaves. They will be green, yellow, red, and even purple. That makes for a striking look in a low-level light corner!
The colors are streaked through the leaves, in order to keep the colors visible, you should keep the plant out of direct sunlight. To look after you simply need to mist its leaves regularly.
Also known as Sansevieria, the snake plant is almost impossible to kill. It’s actually a type of succulent. That means the water is retained in its leaves. This does make it easy to overwater. But, providing you only water it when the soil is completely dry you won’t have an issue.
That’s the good news, no matter how bad you are at gardening or how poor the light in your home, you can have house plants!
