Indoor House Plants

Bringing nature inside your house has many benefits from improving your mood and energy levels, to adding colour to a space. However, finding the right place for your indoor house plants can be a challenge. Just like when outdoors, plants need to be in the right conditions to thrive. Some plants must be placed in direct sunlight while others do best in those darker, low lit rooms of your home. Here are several indoor plants for low light areas.

Snake Plant

The Snake Plant is the perfect plant to add texture and greenery to a corner, desk, or even a shelf. If you don’t have a green thumb, the Snake Plant should be at the top of your “must-have” list. This plant is drought-resistance and can go long periods of time with little watering. Additionally, this is one of many indoor house plants that like low light and will also clean the air in your home.


Ferns are low light indoor plants and do well with very little sunlight. While they still need some natural light, too much direct sunlight will actually cause their leaves to yellow and hurt their growth. Ferns are a fun addition to any indoor space because they add a unique texture and contrast to a room. There are many types of ferns, making it easy to add a lot of greenery and different designs to an area. Visit your local TERRA Greenhouse location to browse their extensive selection of Ferns.


If you want to hang a basket in the corner of your living room or kitchen, ivy is an excellent addition. This indoor house plant does well in dark areas of a room — such as a high corner — and its length and size immediately catches the eye of all your guests. This plant comes in many colours and is a simple way to add visual interest to a room. Also, you won’t need to worry about watering your ivy plant each day as they prefer dryer soil.


Pothos is a popular indoor house plant and it’s ideal if you were not blessed with a green thumb. These indoor plants for low light feature leaves that are dark or light green or two colors such as green and yellow. They do not require daily watering and they will survive in many rooms and locations — as long as they aren’t in direct sunlight throughout the day.
