I’ve compiled a list of 7 easy to maintain low-light houseplants that will boost and beautify the environment of your home & boost your confidence about keeping your houseplants alive! These houseplants are The Best Low-Light Houseplants, Even You Can’t Kill!

Put an end to killing all of your houseplants once and for all! I know, I know – keeping plants alive is hard. But let me switch the script for you! Keeping houseplants alive DOES NOT NEED TO BE HARD! Especially, for the ones that do not need a lot of water or light!

Lighting indoors is a big reason plants have a hard time thriving inside and overwatering is the most common reason why houseplants die. There are houseplants that do better indoors because they prefer low light conditions.


The 7 Best Low-Light Houseplants You Can’t Kill


Peace lilies are beautiful, there’s no doubt about it. But did you know that they can clean your air, they don’t need a lot of watering, and a little sunlight is plenty? They’re at the top of the indoor plant list for a reason. Our Peace Lily is probably one of my favorite plants (we have 31, so it is hard to choose.) I love her because she is the plant that just keeps giving and giving and giving. We’ve had her for a little over a year and she has bloomed constantly all year long. She is even doing well during our chilly dry winters here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Bamboo Palms grow in low light conditions well and like to have moist, but not over watered soil. A beautiful addition to your happy place.

Chinese Evergreen loves low light and only needs watering when the soil is dry. A young plant may sit on a table or desk while older plants thrive in bigger pots on the floor.

Spider Plants love hanging baskets and are very easy to maintain because the only thing you really need to think about is spotty watering and repotting them when they need the room.

English Ivy’s (Golden Pothos) are a must for your comfort zone. This plant loves low sunlight and evenly moist soil. It loves to “crawl” and “climb” and has lush vines to decorate your home.

Water a Lady Palm when the soil is dry, position it in indirect sunlight and you’ll have a beautiful indoor houseplant plant for years to come. These plants thrive indoors because of their adaptations to different environments.

The Snake Plant is known as one of the best plants for purifying the air of your home and loves indirect sunlight. A beautiful native of West Africa, this ornamental plant is sure to enhance the environment of your home.

Maintaining your indoor plants can be a little daunting at times. Giving them the care and attention they need is a crucial part of them thriving and enriching your home. Go ahead and pick one or all of these plants and make your home a happier, healthier place to be.
