Don’t let the lack of light in your house, or in certain rooms, hinder you from growing atmosphere-enhancing indoor house plants. There are plenty of plant varieties that can survive low light conditions, some that can thrive in your darkest corner.

Not every room in your home, apartment or office is going to be bursting with bright light for your plants- there are going to be some areas that are darker. In those dark areas, liven them up by planting house plants that like the shade. The secret to keeping them looking healthy and vibrant is to compensate for their lack of natural light by producing artificial light.

Below are some great house plants to consider for the shaded areas you want to give a refresh and that can survive low light conditions.
