5 Houseplants That Tolerate Low Light

Looking to spice up your home? Houseplants are the way to go. However, it can be overwhelming to figure out which plants will need low maintenance or which type of plants do well indoors. All plants need light, but here are five houseplants that we recommend for that dark corner in need of a little green spark:-

Cast Iron Plant

It’s one of the hardiest houseplants around and will grow without much care at all. It thrives on neglect; so, don’t feel guilty about forgetting to water the cast iron plant for weeks at a time or leaving it in a dark corner.


Monstera plant needs very little sunlight and can thrive in pretty much any light condition you throw at it. The Monstera’s big leaves will grab as much sunlight as possible in a dark corner.

Snake Plant

Snake plants can tolerate various light conditions; this makes them one of the easiest plants for beginners. In a dark corner, make sure you go easy on watering.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies thrive in medium to low light conditions. They can even survive under fluorescent light, making them a great office plant.

ZZ Plant

The ZZ plant thrives best in bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions or even areas where there are artificial lights.
