Most indoor plants need to be positioned next to a window to thrive.
However, some plants naturally thrive in a shaded environment. These plants cannot survive in complete darkness, but they will grow happily as long as they have some access to indirect light.
Here is a list of low light plants:
Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum)
Elephant Ear, Red Emerald and Heart-Leaf Philodendron (Philodendron sp.)
Mother-In-Law’s Tongue (Sansevieria trifasciata)
ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema crispum)
Arrowhead Vine (Syngonium podophyllum)
King Of Hearts (Homalomena wallsii)
