More often than not, we find a beautiful houseplant to update the shady corner of a room, only to find after a few weeks that it's looking like half the plant it once was. With the change of seasons it's a good idea to reassess your light situation as not all spaces receive an ample amount of natural light, making it essential to choose plants that thrive in low-light conditions. Here we share a selection of indoor plants that are well-suited for low light situations, allowing you to cultivate a vibrant and healthy indoor plant collection.

Here's a few tips to care for low light houseplants:
Watering: Be careful not to overwater your low light plants, as they may not dry out as quickly as those in brighter conditions. Allow the soil to dry longer than usual between waterings.
Rotate: If your low light spot isn't evenly lit, rotate your plants occasionally to ensure all sides receive some light.
Clean the Leaves: Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust, allowing them to better absorb available light.
It's time to transform those dark corners and brighten them up with a touch of green. We hope you'll have a little more confidence to add plants to your lower light locations. Just remember that low light doesn't mean no light and if in doubt, move them around!
