Plants That Need No Sunlight
It’s not uncommon to have a dull and dark house or apartment. Nature comes to the help of those living in such places with plants that need no sunlight. Of course, any plant needs light to grow, but those we will list below here need the minimum light possible to develop, while you still can have a sprinkling of nature in your homes. It is, though, recommended that those plants get some sunlight once in a while by taking them on the balcony for a short while.
Maidenhair ferns are a great option to decorate a room because they have frilly fun leaves that vary from the usual thick leaves of indoor plants. Most ferns do well inside with low light and ferns look great in terrariums, so check out others with variegated leaves.
Begonias are also among those plants that need no sunlight. They are beautiful indoor flowering plant, even if often mistaken only for outdoor plants. They are tough, undemanding and free flowering and a simple pot of begonias can be planted for next to nothing and will yield a nice season of color.
Mint is also on our list, a plant which usually grows in a bog, so as long as you keep it moist and it gets a little bit of light, you should be able to harvest mint for tea, for fruit salads and it has the added advantage of giving off a nice scent indoors.
Swedish ivy is another little light loving plant. It is an ideal option if you want to have a decorative plant inside covering a wall or the side of a dresser.
Now, if you really have a dark home and still want to grow a green pocket inside then turn to a moss terrarium. It is a décor that will revitalize the dull room while allowing you to touch nature.
The peace lilly is known to reduce molds and also absorb atmospheric vapors like alcohol and acetone. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can lead to various health problems. Water it once a week, keep away from a lot of sunlight and it keeps filtering the air while enticing you with its strong scent.
