7 Plants Which Can Easily Grow In Enclosed Spaces

Date January 29, 2018 07:15

Spaces always look nicer when we add a touch of nature to them. Plants can help decorate, oxygenate, and give life to spaces.

We know that there are houses and offices which let in very little sunlight, which is perhaps one of the reasons why we don't decorate them with plants. But we have good news. There are some species of plants which can survive in dark places. And here are some of them:

1. Dieffenbachia

These plants are very surprising, can grow up to 10 feet in height, have dark green leaves, and love shade. When placed in direct sunlight, the leaves turn yellow.

2. Spider plant

Its leaves are narrow and long, measuring over a foot in length. They thrive in half-light conditions. If placed in direct sunlight, its leaves can burn. On the other hand, if left without any light, the white part of the plant can disappear.

This plant is known for the beautiful, distinctive patterns formed on its leaves. It's originally from the Amazon and is very hardy. It's best for them to be in a humid environment with little sunlight.
