Houseplants For Low Light Levels

Ask the Expert: How to condition plants to lower light

How can I condition houseplants (and which specis) to accept lower levels of light from a southeast window?

  1. Susi,

    To acclimate plants to low light levels in side the house used the same principle as you would outside. First move the plant to an area with a little less light wait 4 or 5 days. Then move the place to an area with a little less light than the previous place and wait 4 or 5 days. Due this until the plant is in the place you want it to remain.

    My favorite low light level houseplant is the Ponytail palm (Beaucarnea). I like this plant because you can basically ignore it and yet it still thrives.

    Other suggestion would be Phildendron, Wandering Jew (Tradescantia), Bromeliad (Vriessa), Nepthytis – arrowhead plant (Syngonium), Peace Lily (Spathipyllum), Schefflera, Staghorn fern (Platycerium), Pilea, Peperomia, Orchid (Paphiopedilum or Cymbidium), shirmp plant (Beloperone Guttata), Grape Ivy (Cissus), Pigmy Palm (Chamadedorea elegans), Spider plant (chlorophytum comosum), Anthurium, Chinese Evergreen (Aglonemia).

    These are just a few of your options. These are in addition to the plants we discussed in September like Dracaena Warneckii Goldstar
