What are shade-loving indoor plants?
If you have a room or office space with little sunlight or windows, there is unfortunately not much you can do about that. Luckily, there are plenty of plant species that grow well in low lighting conditions. Indoor shade plants only need 2 hours of filtered/indirect sunlight per day.
Examples of ideal locations for indoor shade plants:
- Right next to a window: if a plant is placed next to a window, rather than in front of it, it gets much less light
- 0-3 metres from a north-facing window
- 4-6 metres from a window facing east, south or west
Are you looking for a plant that likes both indirect sunlight and shade? Then you can place the plant in a spot with partial shade. Partial shade plants like indirect sunlight a little more than shade plants. A partial shaded plant needs 1 to 2 hours more light per day than a shade plant.
