If you want a flower-filled house, but you don’t have enough light in the house, there’s no problem! All that you have to do is to choose plants which adapt perfectly in dark place. I have the perfect plants that can be placed even in the darkest corner of your house, without worrying that they will wilt.
Aglaonema, also known as the dark-plant, has green oval leaves that can reach up to 45 cm long. The plant produces small white flowers in the form of spice, which turn into small, red berries. But beware! These are poisonous.
It grows well in shady, low-lit places, but also in rooms with more light, as long as it’s not direct sunlight. Though it prefers dark places, the plant needs warmth to grow harmoniously. So ensure a temperature of 68-77 degrees.
Water the plant frequently during the summer and reduce the amount of water in the cold season. The plant loves wet soil, but it doesn’t have to plow in it. Therefore, it’s advisable to put some water at frequent intervals so as not to drown it.
Dracaena is a plant commonly found in apartments, precisely because it’s easy to care for and withstand the dark rooms. It must be placed away from the window, in a corner where the sun’s rays can’t reach. If possible, provide the plant with a temperature of 70-77 degrees and keep it from air flows.
Although it’s a tropical plant, excessive watering will cause the leaves to turn yellow. So, water the plant once every 3-4 days. Wait for the soil to dry completely before applying the next watering, and after 10 minutes remove the surplus water from the pot plate.
The spider plant or Chlorophytum comosum is an African plant. This plant has long, narrow leaves, striped with green and white. It loves humorous or semi-bloody rooms.
In summer, the ideal vegetation temperature is about 68 degrees while in winter, the plant prefers lower temperatures up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The spider plant should be regularly watered during the summer, so that the soil is always wet. Beware, however, not to overwater it because the roots will rot. In winter, the watering increases up to two to three times a month.
