Plants can be very hard to keep up. I have plants all over my house, but a lot of them need sunlight, which we don’t have everywhere all the time. I don’t even have sunlight in my office space!

In this post, I want to share some of the best indoor plants to grow in low light. That can either be for your office, bathroom, your room; really anywhere. These plants thrive in low light conditions and are easy to grow (which is what we all want, right?). After a lot of research + trial and error with different plants, I came up with a narrowed down list that I found the most helpful! I’m all for low maintenance, so if you’re just like me, read on.

low light plantsPothos

This one is my favorite, and this is a good starting point if you’re new to growing houseplants. It does well with a range of conditions, from low light to high light. This plant also goes well no matter where you put it.

I guess this one’s kind of like a pothos, but slightly different. This is an easy plant because it adapts to the conditions very easily inside the home. It also tells you exactly what it needs, so just watch out for the signals (yellow/brown leaves, dropping leaves, etc.)

Lucky Bamboo 

Another low light/sunless plant. You can either grow it in water (by changing water weekly) or plant it in soil and keep it evenly moist.






low light plant Peace Lily 

This low light plant is known for cleaning up the air. I have bad allergies, so I do my research when I bring any flowers or plants in my area!

Snake Plant

I used to think this plant looked creepy as heck until I realized it was one of the easiest plants to take care of. I like the sword-like leaves that go straight up; it’s good for focal interest in the room or in the office.

When all else fails, stick to cactus! Easiest maintenance as far as watering and the light situation (generously during the summer, and every other month during the winter).







That’s my list of the best indoor plants you can grow in low light without problems. I usually get mine from Home Depot, Lowe’s, or Calloway’s. If you’ve been hesitant to grab a plant because you’re afraid you would kill them, start with one of the plants in this list and see how you do! On a side note, I’m always looking for plants that purify the air so it helps even a bit with my terrible allergies. If you have recommendations, let me know!
