I recently put a potted plant to grow in my bedroom. But that did not work out so well. The plant was just not suitable for growing in a low light environment.
And I certainly do not let a lot of light into my bedroom. I just like my bedroom to be low light and cozy. So my little plant started struggling for life.
I am now on a hunt for better bedroom plant options. Bedroom plants should be those that need little light to strive. Like myself, most people don’t let much light in their bedrooms.
Here are five low- light plants that won’t die in your bedroom. These plants don’t need to be in direct sunlight to grow and be healthy. They strive better in low light.
The Watermelon Begonia is also known as Peperomia argyreia, or Watermelon Peperomia. It is a species of flowering plant in the family Piperaceae. These are native to northern South America, including Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela.
Bear’s Paw Fern
Bear’s paw fern is also known as Polypodium aureum “Mandianum”, or Hare’s Foot Fern. This plant is named for the fur-like rhizomes that form at the base of the fronds, and is native to tropical regions.
