You can’t just pick any old plant and hope it grows by watering it, even though plants in your home, especially in the bedroom or living room, offer many great benefits, both aesthetically and health-wise (both physically and mentally). However, having plants in your home offers many great benefits. In addition, the interior of a house is significantly warmer than the exterior during the majority of the year in the majority of regions of the world and receives significantly less sunlight, particularly if net curtains are used to cover the windows.

Keeping this in mind, you will need to select a plant that can thrive in warm environments despite the limited amount of sunlight that it receives.

To get you started, we have selected 15 wonderful plants for you to grow.

Hanging Basket.

The pothos and the Swedish ivy are excellent indoor plants because of their low light requirements. Pothos, also referred to as “Devil’s Ivy,” is a safe plant for humans and pets to consume. It has the ability to produce aerial roots that literally “hang” from the potting mix, but you must be careful because if given a chance, it will grow very quickly. Place trailing pothos near the edge of your container garden or hanging basket if you are looking for a way to soften the sharp corners in your room.

A wonderful decorating scheme can be rendered useless by the presence of sharp and hard edges. Pothos is an excellent option for softening the appearance of hard surfaces such as linoleum flooring, vinyl floors, and other areas that you would like to make cosier.

It is possible for Swedish ivy to thrive in conditions of either partial or indirect sunlight (almost no direct sunlight). It requires well-drained, fertile soil in order to thrive. You can help your Swedish ivy by misting its leaves with water at room temperature on a daily basis. This will increase the humidity of the plant, which is beneficial because the Swedish ivy enjoys being moist.

Due to the fact that they are so simple to cultivate indoors, staghorn ferns are one of the most common and widely used plants for hanging baskets. The spiny leaves of staghorn ferns need to be misted every day to prevent the leaves from drying out and becoming infested with spider mites. If the tips of the fronds on your staghorn plant have turned brown and crispy, this is a sign that the plant is receiving an excessive amount of water. The most effective strategy for avoiding this issue is to wait until the top few inches of soil have completely dried out before applying any additional water. If you place staghorn ferns in an area that receives too much direct sunlight, they will wilt and turn a yellowish colour instead of flourishing as they normally would in medium light.


Shell Ginger.

Shell Ginger, or Alpinea zerumbet var. purpurea, is a plant that is well-known for the vibrant foliage it bears as well as the tropical flowers and ease with which it grows. It is possible to cultivate it as a ground cover or put it in containers so that it can provide colour even when other plants are not in bloom.

This herbaceous perennial is native to India, China, Indonesia, and Japan, where it thrives well along the coasts near streams or in mangrove forests at low elevations. Shell ginger seeds were first brought to the United States in 1844, but the plant was difficult to cultivate until 1963 when it was hybridized with Alpinia nutans by botanists who wanted bigger flowers. Since then, shell ginger has been widely cultivated.

This tropical perennial, which is now widely available in greenhouses, is quickly gaining popularity in the South due to the fact that it does not require a great deal of maintenance. Shell Ginger is able to flourish in either full sun or partial shade, but it must not be positioned in an area that collects water after it has rained, as this will cause the plant to perish. It prefers moist soil that drains well, and if it is to be grown indoors, the container it is kept in must have holes in it through which excess water can drain.

Flowers of the shell ginger plant typically last a long time indoors but do not emit a scent. The plants grow to a height of 6–10 inches and produce large, arrow-shaped green leaves that sit atop red stems. These leaves provide a striking contrast to the upright orange flowers. When they are first ready to eat in the early fall, the brightly coloured green, yellow, and purple fruits attract a variety of avian species. Shell ginger is frequently used as a ground cover over damaged areas of landscapes. This is due to the fact that its attractive foliage and colourful flowers continue to bloom throughout the year. It is also attractive when grown in containers, particularly hanging baskets, because it can cascade over the sides of the container.

Because it is simple to grow new plants from cuttings, shell ginger can be grown at home if desired, which is convenient given that it is not always available at local nurseries. You can start seeds indoors three to four weeks before the warm weather arrives or sow them directly outside in the spring after the threat of frost has passed.

Young plants can survive in dry conditions, but established plants require consistent watering in order to thrive. Apply a balanced fertilizer that has been diluted to one-half of its normal strength once every month while the plant is actively growing. It is important to watch the telltale trails that snails and slugs leave behind because they frequently feed on leaves.

Shell ginger is categorized as a tender perennial, which means that it will wither and die back during the winter months in USDA hardiness zones eight and higher. If you live in a cooler climate, growing it as an indoor plant or in a container is your best bet.

It is possible to overwinter it outdoors in warmer microclimates if you dig it up and bring it inside for the winter. However, this is not recommended. Stop all watering and put the plant in a cool, dry place until spring, when you can expect it to start producing new growth.

Coral Plant.

Since ancient times, people have believed that the coral plant bestows good fortune in romantic relationships and friendships. Although it is not poisonous, it has the potential to make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, which could be problematic for people who get sunburned easily.

Coral plants can even be grown in water, making them an excellent choice for the centrepieces of reception tables at weddings.

Ponytail Palm.

Ponytails are perfect for growing indoors in low-light areas because they are typically grown in baskets with their roots elevated above the soil level. They grow best when placed near windows that receive indirect morning or evening sun. In addition, during the spring and summer months, when they are actively growing, they only require watering once every three to four weeks, so they will do just fine on the windowsill of your kitchen or on the counter of your bathroom.

Recently made available Ponytails are frequently grafted in order to increase their value and, thus, their price. If you come across one that has not been grafted or offset, it is possible that the core of the plant is dead. If this is the case, it will eventually rot away, which will result in the top growth dying off. This is acceptable because it enables you to cut off your ponytail and reroot it in soil, producing new offsets that can be used for further propagation or sale.

Ponytails require very little attention and will reward you with an extended blooming period for your efforts. They are capable of flowering when they are less than two feet high from the base of the plant, but they typically only have scapes that grow to a maximum height of about one foot. Because of this, you shouldn’t anticipate that your ponytail palm will grow much taller than this during its life in a container.

A brief rundown of the methods I use to maintain my ponytails is as follows:

Direct sunlight is not ideal, but this plant does require bright light in order to thrive. Even though ponytails can be grown outdoors in tropical climates, you should still keep them away from any hot windows or areas where they will be exposed to the heat reflected off a wall. When you can, switch to a window that does not have a screen. Keep in mind that these plants don’t have much of a root ball, which means that during the winter months, they require warmth in order to prevent their roots from becoming too cold. Bring everything indoors before the temperature drops to freezing.

Ponytails are durable even in temperatures as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Bring your plant indoors or cover it with frost cloth if you have any reason to believe it will be outside for an extended period of time where the temperature will be lower than this.

Spider Plant.

Due to their adaptability, spider plants are among the easiest houseplants to cultivate. They can thrive in a diverse range of environmental conditions. It is important to keep it out of direct sunlight because it could cause the tips of the leaves to turn yellow or brown. Spider plants produce small “babies” on long flower stalks that are ready to be transplanted once they have developed their first set of true leaves. These “babies” can be found on the spider plant.

If you place these new spider plant babies in a pot and continue to care for them, they will eventually mature into their own full-grown plants in their own right.

The top layer of soil should be allowed to become completely dry before watering spider plants; however, excessive watering can lead to root rot and compromise the health of your spider plant. Be sure it is in an area with adequate ventilation because an excessive amount of moisture will also cause it to deteriorate.

Aglaonema.

Aglaonemas require high levels of humidity to thrive; therefore, if you live in an area where the air is dry, it is recommended that you mist your plant daily with water. If you touch your aglaonema and notice that your fingers are starting to turn brown, this is a sign that it is not getting enough humidity. You could also try misting your plant daily or setting it on a pebble tray with water.

Begonia.

It is important to keep the begonia in bright light (but not direct sun) in order to maintain its vivid colouring and to prevent it from stretching toward the light. Due to the fact that these plants thrive in environments with adequate airflow, it is best to position them just outside of drafty windows or doors in rooms where there is a breeze.

These plants do best in medium to low light conditions, but they should not be kept in complete darkness. Look at how it’s doing and make adjustments accordingly over the course of a few weeks, rather than attempting to correct every mistake all at once. The optimal time range is generally between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., although this varies depending on where you live.

Any location that receives sunlight for at least three-quarters of the day is ideal for the Christmas cactus you have, although it can also thrive in areas that receive bright light (during all hours, not just some). The second most common mistake is overwatering their plants; to prevent the plant from rotting, you should wait for the soil to dry out before returning to your normal watering schedule.

Boston Fern.

The Boston Fern is one of the many types of ferns that are relatively simple to care for indoors. They enjoy high levels of humidity but do not like having their feet constantly wet. Giving their potting mix time to dry out in between waterings will produce the most beautiful fronds. If the leaves on your Boston fern are yellow or brown, this may indicate that it is being exposed to excessive light. The optimal conditions for this plant’s growth are low light levels and indirect sun exposure.

A few points of interest: Boston ferns can also store water in their leaves, so it is always beneficial to mist the plant with filtered water at room temperature. If you do not have a humidifier or mister, you can increase the humidity level around your fern by placing it on a tray of wet pebbles. This will help keep the fern healthy.

The removal of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air that we breathe indoors by houseplants such as Boston ferns is one factor that contributes to the majority of the symptoms that we associate with poor indoor air quality (headaches, fatigue, etc.).

These toxins are “often more concentrated inside our homes than outdoors,” according to NASA scientist Bill Wolverton, who has been researching this phenomenon for over 20 years. Wolverton has been studying this phenomenon. Therefore, to make the air in your home healthier, fill it with lush greenery such as Boston ferns, peace lilies, and spider plants.

Near the top of their stalks, Boston ferns will produce a cluster of teeny, tiny flowers. These flowers will produce berry-like seeds that can be saved and replanted if they are pollinated by hand using a cotton swab or toothpick dipped in water. Hand pollination can be done using the method described above.

When you go to your neighbourhood nursery or garden centre searching for Boston ferns, you shouldn’t let yourself become overwhelmed because there are over 250 varieties to choose from! The majority of plants belonging to the Nephrolepis genus thrive in low-light environments, but the following three Nephrolepis species account for the vast majority of indoor Boston ferns:

Sword Fern, or Nephrolepis exaltata “Bostoniensis,” is another name for this plant. Because of its tropical appearance, low light requirements, and ease of propagation, this variety of Boston fern is the most commonly grown and most widely available.

Nephrolepis biserrate “Chocolate” is an eye-catching variety that has fronds that are a profoundly dark purple colour and are prominently veined.

If you’re wondering, “How can I tell which type of Boston fern I have?” you’re in the right place. It’s very simple! Just take a quick look at the shape of their leaves; if they are completely solid in colour, without any sort of variegation or holes at all, then you most likely have an exaltata hybrid, just like the plant that is the focus of this article. But don’t be alarmed if you find that your fern occasionally has a few holes because this is completely normal for Boston ferns!

Peace Lily.

The Peace Lily is characterized by having white flowers that last for a long time and glossy green foliage. It grows best in dim or moderate illumination, which makes it an ideal houseplant for locations such as the bathroom or bedroom. It is important to keep the delicate foliage of the peace lily away from drafts and heaters because these things can cause it to dry out. If the leaves are allowed to remain damp, the tips may turn brown due to exposure to cold air or a drafty environment.

The peace lily does best when grown in soil that is slightly acidic and has peat or humus added to it. It could benefit from being repotted every other year into a new potting mix if it is kept in low light where it is kept at your house. To prevent dust from accumulating on the foliage of your plant, give the leaves a regular soak in water mixed with diluted plant food. Although the Peace lily does not require significant pruning, the spent flower heads should be removed whenever possible after they have finished blooming. This will result in an increase in the number of flowers that bloom in the spring.

During the time that your plant is actively growing, you should fertilize it about once every month (April through September). The division of clumps or the germination of seeds are two methods that can be used to spread the peace lily. When dividing plants, it is important to ensure that each piece has a sufficient number of roots and at least two or more new shoots.

We keep our peace lilies on the second floor of our building, near a large window, on top of our desk cabinets. This is the uppermost floor of our building. These plants don’t appear to be bothered as much by the morning light as by the heat generated by my lamps at night. Remember that these plants like high humidity and a lot of moisture, so make sure to keep your peace lily out of the way of any drafts during the winter months.

Take special care not to expose your peace lily to indirect light; water it on a regular basis using water at room temperature, and make sure to let it drain completely after each time you water it. Be sure to keep it out of the reach of both children and animals! Since we’ve had the ones we have for the past two years, I can confidently say that they are one of my favourite plants. They add a cheery vibe to a space, and despite falling in Canada, we’re still appreciating the beauty of our white flowers.

ZZ Plant.

ZZ plants thrive in a wide range of environments, including those with little available light. They can also be easily spread by rooting the leaves while they are still attached to the stem, which is another benefit. Remove a leaf from your plant and put it in a container with moist soil as soon as you observe that the tips are turning yellow or brown.

The plant should be kept in this pot in indirect sunlight until new growth begins; after that, it should be transplanted into a larger container for a plant that is already established or into direct sunlight outside if you live in a warmer climate.

Because of their trailing stems, ZZ plants are frequently seen as suitable candidates for use in hanging baskets.

African violet.

Because the African violet thrives best in bright, filtered light, you should keep it away from windows that get full or partial exposure to the sun throughout the day. Once the top two inches of soil have become dry, it is time to water the African violet, but make sure the container does not become saturated with water.

Humidity is the most important factor in maintaining the beauty of African violets; therefore, you should either place your plant on a pebble tray filled with water or mist them daily. Even though they can produce flowers at any time of the year, African violets are at their most productive from early spring until late summer.

The African Violet Society of America (AVSA) has compiled all of the information you require to properly care for your plants, including details on how to propagate them, protect them from pests and diseases, and more.

Philodendron.

Philodendrons are among the most popular foliage plants, and they come in a wide variety of colours and varieties, all of which are ideally suited for cultivation inside. This beautiful plant is typically understory and grows naturally along stream banks and ponds. It enjoys bright, indirect sunlight and moist soil but does not like having its feet in the water.

Between waterings, allow the soil in your philodendron to become just slightly dry, and do not remove any excess water from the saucer that sits beneath the plant’s container.

Also, steer clear of drafts because they can cause brown tips on the leaves of your philodendron, which is a sign that your plant is being subjected to excessive cold air.

Philodendrons thrive in humid environments; therefore, you should run a humidifier in your home to ensure that the air around your plant is adequately moist. If you are growing philodendrons indoors, you should rotate them daily to ensure that all sides of the plant receive equal sunlight.

One of the best qualities of Philodendrons is their adaptability; they are hardy plants that are also simple to cultivate. Don’t be alarmed if you find that some of your leaves are beginning to droop. This is completely normal, and as soon as your philodendron receives adequate water, it will start perking back up again.

Your philodendron will not produce flowers if it is kept inside, but if you move it outside during the summer, you may be able to enjoy a stunning display of flowers near the plant’s crown. These flowers can serve as a guide to the locations in the wild where these lovely flowers would appear.

Even if it appears that your philodendron is not interested in producing flowers, you still have options available to you. You can encourage your philodendron to produce more shoots by removing any new growth that appears at the top of the stem.

If all else fails, you can always go out and purchase a new plant; these little guys are so simple to take care of that you could easily have several of them growing in various pots all over your house or workplace. Because of their vivid colours and large, lush leaves, you’ll find that they work wonderfully as decorations in a wide variety of environments.

Have a wonderful time tending to your philodendrons! When it comes to the variety of colours, shapes, and sizes, the sky is the limit; there is something out there for each and every person.

There are a few different names for the Sansevieria trifasciata plant, including Snake Plant and Mother-in-Tongue. Law’s

If you have a dimly lit space and are willing to let it go without water, this plant could be the least demanding of all those on this list. It thrives in moist environments; therefore, spraying it with water every so often will help it keep its long and slender leaves, making it an excellent choice for vertical space. Keep it away from drafts and temperatures that are too high or too low, and make sure it doesn’t get too much direct sunlight unless you live in a warm climate where these kinds of plants can thrive outside.

Remember to water Sansevieria trifasciata when the soil reaches the point where it is completely dry. Failing to do so may result in root rot. Sansevieria trifasciata can tolerate brief periods of dryness. You should also avoid using any chemicals or leaf-shine products on your plant because doing so will cause the leaves to become damaged.

Because these plants can be harmful to both people and their animals, it is important to keep them out of the reach of curious little paws and hands. Because they require so little maintenance, these plants make stunning presents for anyone on your list.

Plant in a container that has drainage holes to prevent the roots from becoming damaged by soggy soil. It thrives in bright indirect light at temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (15 and 27 degrees Celsius) during the summer and below 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius) during the winter. Because it grows best in moist environments, place the plant’s container in a tray of damp pebbles to raise the relative humidity around it.

Campanula.

Clusters of blue, purple, or white flowers appear on the bellflower plant throughout the entire summer months. This plant is very hardy. Put this lovely plant in low to medium indirect light, and water it very little; in between waterings, make sure the soil has a chance to dry out completely. This charming flower has a blooming period that begins in the spring and continues through the fall, and it thrives best in temperatures that are on the cooler side. In addition, the bellflower can be combined with other types of flowers or planted in a planter.

One of our most cherished types of flowers for cutting is the bellflower. They also have medicinal properties that can be used to treat fevers and improve digestion. These properties allow them to be used in certain situations.

Ivy of pothos

Cultivating the pothos ivy indoors is simple due to the plant’s high tolerance for neglect. If your plant is wilting or toppling over, you most likely need to provide it with more humidity. On the other hand, if the leaves are yellow with brown tips, your pothos ivy requires more light! These plants should be kept approximately two feet away from any window and watered whenever the top two inches of soil have become dry. You can start a new plant from a cutting or a tear in a healthy stem and then wait for it to grow new roots in moist soil before moving it into its own container. You can cut or tear off a few inches from the stem.

The pothos is one of the hardiest plants that man has ever discovered. It requires little attention and can thrive in low light, making it an ideal choice for those who are just starting out with growing houseplants. Unfortunately, many people kill this plant due to its “scary” appearance; even experienced gardeners are frequently frightened away by its appearance!

If there are any other plants you enjoy cultivating indoors, please let us know about them in the section provided below for comments and share any tips for cultivating them so that we can all have healthier homes and lives.
