Houseplants That Can Survive in Even the Darkest Corner





These plant varieties can become a real godsend for those who wish to freshen up the atmosphere of their office or house, even if there’s a lack of sunlight. They fare great in darkened rooms or in low light.

1. Snake Plant

While the name is fun, this succulent is pretty tame (read: easy!) when it comes to maintenance. More light will help it grow, but it can tolerate darkness — just watch out for root rot caused by overwatering

2. Chinese Evergreen

Since this plant is one of the most durable indoor plants (it does quite well in low light) and only needs to be fertilized once or twice a year, it's ideal for beginner gardeners.

3. Dragon Tree

Spiky leaves that grow upwards and have a red outline makes the name of this plant absolutely perfect. But direct sunlight could damage them – so give this guy some sun and some shade.

4. Dieffenbachia

Filtered light is best for this plant. Try using a curtain as a barrier between it and the sun, especially during the the spring and summer when the plant is producing new, tender leaves.

5. Heart-Leaf Philodendron

The sweetheart plant (a nickname given because of the shape of its glossy leaves) can stand dim rooms, but requires pinching to prevent it from growing in long, single stems.
