The Shark Fin is a particularly hardy indoor plant. This unusual-looking shark-fin shaped mono-phytic species has just one single leaf in the shape of a sail/fin - giving it its unique name.

This particular cactus comes in a 19cm diameter growing pot so is also of a pretty impressive size and will have been growing happily for years.

What are the Best Plants for Dimmer Areas?
All plants need some natural light, but some are more tolerant of low light than others. Plus, plants are a great way of livening up your interior and creating an ambience. You might be wondering what your options are, so our plants experts have compiled some recommendations. Take your pick, whatever works best for you and your home!
One of the toughest indoor plants is the ZZ plant. This palm likes any spot that's away from direct sunlight, making it a super versatile green companion. The evergreen plant has glossy leaves on upright stems that will add structure to your plant collection. Top tip: with less natural light, it also needs less water.
If you're looking to add rich, dark tones to your green oasis, the Peperomia caperata 'Schumi Red' is a real eye-catcher. Its heart-shaped, textured leaves come in colours ranging from dark burgundy to (almost) black. When you walk past it, we guarantee you'll want to stroke its leaves, and we urge you to go right ahead! This is all part of building a nurturing relationship with your plant.
What are the best Low-Water Houseplants?
Don't worry if you forget to water your plants sometimes! Tough garden plants like the Lemon Tree need regular soaking during the summer months, the majority of indoor plants like a break between waterings. This is good news if you’re looking for plants for a shared space, where they may get left for a few days or more. Whatever plant you choose, make sure it works for you and helps create a space where you’ll feel comfortable.
Are Succulents Low Maintenance Plants ?
Yes! Succulents will be your best low maintenance companion. When we mention succulents, you probably immediately think of cacti. This family of plants is so much more diverse than many of us might think, though. The best example is the Fishbone Cactus. Its long, wavy stems give it a distinctive look that will lift the interior of any room. With a good bit of sunshine and a tad of cactus feed, you might even get it to flower at the end of summer.
Aloes are another big succulent family. The gel in their fronds has been used for its healing properties for millennia! Whether bright sunshine or dry heating air, the Candelabra Aloe can withstand it all. This statuesque variety will store water in its fronds, so it tolerates a little neglect. Pop it wherever, and it will be a happy chap!
Last but not least, you should consider Snake Plants. They're a tough bunch who don't even mind imperfect light conditions. The Mother in Law Tongue Zeylanica has flat fronds that grow upright, glowing in different shades of green. With its air-purifying abilities, this plant lifts the look of any room whilst improving its air quality.
