Plants That Grow Without Sunlight

We all know that plants need soil, water, and sunlight to survive. However, some of them prefer or can tolerate different levels of these necessities. Therefore, if you own an indoor venue such as a hotel, theatre, or casino, hope for some foliage and flora is not lost. 

Below, we have compiled a list of the perfect indoor, low light-level plants to brighten up any corner of your establishment. 

Sansevieria (Snake Plant)

A popular choice for many is the snake plant. It's tough and thrives on neglect. In the wild, they grow in bright or even direct sunlight, yet they can grow happily in dim environments.

They also need very little water and prefer to be completely dry before watering is required. Too much care and attention is often the root killer for the snake plant. 

There are several different varieties of snake plants; which one you choose will depend on where you’d like to position your plant. Some are miniature and grow to be only a couple of inches tall; others can grow to be above three feet tall. NASA studies have shown that the snake plant will clean the air by removing toxins, making them a perfect choice for indoor venues. 

Peace Lily

The peace lily is a beautiful flowering option to add elegance to any room. It’ll produce more flowers if you can give it moderate amounts of light. However, in dimly-lit rooms, it still looks just as impressive with thick foliage and the occasional flower. 

They're among the easiest plants to care for indoors and deal with underwatering far better than overwatering. Like the others in this list, they prefer watering only when dry. Furthermore, they're also known for their air-purifying properties. 

Zamioculcas Zamiifolia (ZZ Plant)  

The ZZ plant is commonly found in shopping malls and large indoor venues where they’re often mistaken as being fake due to their shiny leaves. The plant is as tough as the snake plant. It can suffer neglect for months before showing any sign of distress. 

The plant does better when left alone. Like cacti, it prefers very little water. You should water them only when the soil has dried out completely.

Final Words

The ideas mentioned above are the tip of the iceberg of plants that tolerate low-level light. Make sure to check the care instructions before purchasing a plant to fill your hotel's halls, or before adding a touch of nature to your casino venue (find out more about different types of casinos here). 

Remember, you're looking for a plant that’s as low-maintenance as possible!
