Best Houseplants for Low Light Areas
I have just moved into a house with a very gloomy hallway and I thought that a plant or two might cheer it up a bit. Can you suggest any houseplants that are suitable for low light areas?
Coincidentally, I have just been involved in writing an article for a staircase company, talking about how different houseplants can be used in and around a staircase in a low light area. Here are some pictures of the plants I discuss in that article. You can read all of my care tips for each of them in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
Most dracaenas survive in low light, but Dracaena Janet craig is my favorite.
Chinese Evergreen plants do well and
come in many leaf patterns.
Heartleaf Philodendron, indestructible, looks
best on a table or hanging.
You can find more low light plant suggestions in the article I wrote for the staircase company that I mentioned above.
