Trends 2023/2024: plants for dimly lit interiors

Anyone who grows indoor plants can recognize that keeping greenery beautiful and vibrant is not easy. A new trend in horticulture is the cultivation of species adapted to low light, which will grow even in dark rooms.

With everyone looking to make maintenance easy, houseplants that thrive in low light seem like the obvious solution. However, low light levels do not always mean low operating costs. There are about 30 houseplants that are almost impossible to kill in the absence of bright sunlight – this is a wide range from thorny snake plants to golden heart-shaped pothos. They are so easy to care for that they can be moved to the darkest corner of the house and still survive. However, they may not grow as fast as they do on a windowsill. Here are some tips on how to organize a home garden with all the factors in mind.


Aspidistra (“iron lady”, or Cast Iron Plant) – got its name in honor of its almost indestructible qualities. This is the perfect plant for beginner gardeners. It easily tolerates careless care and grows in the shade. Moreover, it eliminates dryness in the room, while humidifying the air and purifying it. In addition, if you have cats and dogs that love to nibble on something, you can be sure that a few bites on the “iron” plant will not hurt.


Aglaonema (Aglaonema Chinese Evergreen) is one of the most durable houseplants. It does well in low light and only needs to be fertilized once or twice a year, making it ideal for beginner gardeners. In fact, these plants don’t even need natural light to grow. Similarly, they will survive under artificial lighting. They also thrive in dry air, so this is one plant that doesn’t need to be placed in a bathroom. However, the Chinese evergreen beauty is toxic to cats, dogs, and horses, so keep it away from pets.

Sansevieria, or “snake” plant

Sansevieria Snake Laurentii is a survival champion. “We got this plant because we wanted to add some color and life to our apartment, but we were not ready to spend more than a few minutes tending it. We water it every six to eight weeks, and this is more than enough,” say the owners of the “snake” plant. If you have pets, keep them away from it as it can cause reactions in cats and dogs.

Ficus Benjamina

This fast-growing tree can spice up any room in the house. Just make sure you give him enough water. Place it in a deep pot filled with well-drained soil and give it a big sip of water when the top few inches of soil are dry. It does well in indirect light, so instead of placing it near a window, choose an angle that gets a lot of ambient light. Ficus is poisonous to cats and dogs.


Bromeliad is a rather unexpected addition to the list as it is a tropical plant. In fact, it can only survive under fluorescent light and thrives in damp environments such as bathrooms. They can grow on the ground, on rocks, or on other plants and trees. They are also non-toxic to animals, making them one of the favorite plants for the home.
