20 Low-Light Houseplants That Are Easy to Maintain and (Nearly) Impossible to Kill

Posted on

It is important that the home is not just a place where we survive, but where we live. People don’t just like their home to be functional—some really want it to feel like a home too.

One of the best ways I have found that adds a touch of home to any house is by adding houseplants.

However, the biggest challenge with houseplants is sunlight (and other kinds of maintenance). Our house, for example. Even though we have many windows, but because we live in the woods, it is hard to get much sunlight through these windows.

If you are in the same boat, don’t worry.

I’ve got a list of 23 low light houseplants that are nearly impossible to kill, even if you don’t have enough time to take care of it.

1. African Violets



African Violets are a personal favorite to many. They have dark-green leaves and the flowers are usually purple; however, at times they can be blue or white as well.

Because they are such small plants, they are great for small spaces.

And they do not require much sunlight.

The most important tip to keeping an African violet healthy and blooming is to sit it in water rather than to water it from overhead. These plants are known to stimulate the release of endorphins and adrenaline, which are two hormones that help with stress relief and relaxation.

2. ZZ Plant

ZZ or ZeeZee is a plant that can withstand neglect.

If you don’t have a green thumb, this is a great plant for you. The worst thing that can be done to this plant is to overwater it. If you wait until the soil is completely dry before watering it, then the plant should do fine.

This plant can take bright light or low light, as long as it is not made to sit in direct sunlight.

The only stipulation that comes with this plant is that it grows to about two feet in diameter. You’ll have to be sure to display it somewhere where it will have room to stretch out.
