In August, when it was hot and sunny, we talked about Low-Water plants. Now, it’s January, the days are cold and dark, so let’s talk about Low-Light Plants. My home has a lot of windows, and contains plenty of drought-resistant succulents. I don’t own many low-light plants, so Amazon was an amazing resource for this blog entry. We wanted to find the top-rated low-light plants, avoiding those that are major disappointments. Perfect for homes with no south-facing windows, and apartments on lower floors, the following plants received the best ratings.

Top-Rated Low-Light Plants from Amazon:

  1. Flamingo Flower (Anthurium species)(toxic to pets)
  2. Boston Fern (Nephorlepis exaltata)
  3. Prince of Orange (Philodendron Araceae)
  4. Dumb Cane (Dieffenbacha) (irritant, toxic)
  5. Golden Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)(toxic)
  6. Calathea (ornata) (toxic)
  7. Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema) (irritant, toxic)
  8. Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)(irritant, mildly toxic)
  9. Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)(mildly toxic)

Next, you may ask, are there any indoor plants that thrive in BOTH low-light AND low-water areas? Yes. We found two varieties:

  1. The Golden Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum)
  2. The Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)
