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 plantsperts 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 capterata '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.
