Plants That Can Handle Low Light

Floor-to-ceiling windows, bucket loads of light and a tonne of space?! Wow lucky you!

But for those of us urban dwellers who have to work with shady spots and compact spaces - fear not, it doesn't mean we can't enjoy a fantastic selection of plants too! 

Here are a variety of plants that enjoy that dimly lit vibe: 

Snake Plant (Mother in Law Tongue)

No, this isn’t a dig at your partner’s parents, but rather the name for this snakey houseplant that loves being in shaded conditions. You’ll also love how low-maintenance these plants are. Don’t touch them a couple weeks and they’ll be fine; which is ideal if you like to travel a lot!
