Basements often don’t get enough light to support plant life, as anybody who has attempted to grow plants there will attest to. Plants cannot survive without constant light exposure. You should probably rethink your indoor plant selection before making drastic modifications to your home’s interior gardening, including installing skylights or replacing all of your genuine plants with artificial ones. Here is a list of twenty houseplants that do well with little light.
The Americas’ tropical regions are home to over 500 distinct philodendron species. They like temperatures between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius and may be found naturally occurring in low-light areas such as woodlands, riverbanks, and similar places. In their native environment, they have a better chance of being uncovered. If you suspect they may be poisonous, keep them somewhere children and pets, particularly cats, can’t get to them. The importance of this cannot be overstated if you have cats as pets.
Cast-iron Plant (Aspidistra Eliator)
Plants with the “cast-iron” quality are as tough as iron. These plants are quite resilient. Besides being healthy in the face of unpredictable watering, poor humidity, and large temperature swings, they exhibit no indications of stress. Houseplants are a great option to consider if you tend to be negligent with other types of greenery.
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Braunii)
While the fortunate bamboo has not been officially classified as a species of bamboo, its African origin has been hypothesized. But other people say that if you eat this plant, you will become wealthy and lucky. It may be grown without soil, but it should be kept out of the reach of pets due to probable toxicity.
Prayer Plant (Maranta Leuconera)
To symbolize open hands in prayer, the leaves of the prayer plant are designed to remain spread wide all day long. However, when night falls, the leaves of the tree begin to curl inward, as if in a closed prayer. However, they need a high-humidity environment and a humus-rich, well-drained soil to thrive. They also need to be stored in a warm environment.
