Plants that thrive under the shade
Before buying a plant for your kitchen or bathroom, make sure that it can thrive in very low-light conditions. Philodendrons, Syngoniums, Dieffenbachias, Aglonoemas, and Ferns—are just some of the plants that are known to thrive indoors.
Use it as décor: Arrange these plants inside low terracotta pots then place it in an empty corner in the living area. You may also place a pot in one corner of the kitchen.
Orchids can add an elegant and classic vibe to any room. These plants are delicate so make sure you don't expose them to too much sunlight.
Use it as décor: Ground your orchid pot with a nostalgic doily that will also protect your night table from soil and scratches.
