People Share Houseplants That Can Survive Low Light

Yes, there are indoor plants that will grow in rooms that have no windows.

Twitter user batonthemoon recently started a thread in which she named some of the indoor plants that don't need a lot of sunlight to survive. A lot of people found this thread really helpful and even jumped in by giving their own recommendations.

Apparently, having plants around at home is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it's also amazing for your soul as well as your health—both mental and physical.


Studies have shown that houseplants can improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels, boost your mood, and help you sleep.


Moreover, plants are natural air purifiers that have the ability to cleanse the air from toxic chemicals, so the air you're breathing becomes much cleaner and fresher.



Also, let's not forget about the fact that they can raise the air’s humidity by releasing water, which can protect us from getting respiratory problems.















Some people are discouraged from getting houseplants because they live in low-light apartments and assume that all plants need a lot of sunlight—which, in fact, isn't true.
