Top Low Light Plants

Top Low light plantsMany apartment or smaller rooms without windows that lack natural light can make it hard to be a successful green thumb.

There are some beautiful house plants that will adapt and will tolerate low light. We have picked out our top two low light plants that will brighten up in any dark corner in your home or office.

Low light does not mean no light at all. Low light is when your plant is positioned several feet away from a light source and gets no direct light. A room does not have to have a window in order for a low-light plant to survive. If the plant has some kind of artificial light it should survive just fine.

You probably know that plants need sunlight, water and soil to grow, but what do they feed on? Plants make their own food. They use sunlight, water and gases in the air to make food, a process called photosynthesis.

Not many plants like low light as sunlight is one of the key factors for its survival. We have found a few that will happily survive and thrive in low light parts of your home. Here are our top picks.

1. Pothos
The Pothos plant is native to China, the Indian Subcontinent, Australia, New Guinea, Southeast Asia, and various islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
It is an attractive, hardy, cascading plant that has a reputation as the easiest houseplant to grow. The Pothos plant commonly known as Devils Ivy plants thrive in both bright light and low light situations and don’t need any specific care. Their ideal environment is medium light and when in low light their leaves may be darker green in colour. Pothos can be grown in soil or water.

2. ZZ Plant 
The ZZ Plant also called the Zanzibar Gem is a tropical perennial plant native to eastern Africa.  It has adapted to survive drought and low light and has a rather unique looking root system. The ZZ Plant has thick, potato-like roots known as rhizomes where it stores water during dry periods making it a very resilient house plant. The ZZ plant prefers medium light but will tolerate low light very well.

How to Care for Kokedama

Caring for your Kokedama is easy.  Follow these steps to keep your Kokedama healthy and content.

1. Feel the weight of the Kokedama. If it feels light in weight it’s time for watering. (Generally, succulent Kokedama’s will only require watering every few weeks).

2. Place the Kokedama in an empty container and gently fill it with room temperature water so it covers 1/3 to 1/2 of the Kokedama ball.

3. Let the Kokedama sit for approximately 10 minutes to absorb the water.

4. Remove the Kokedama from the container and drain excess water for a few minutes. When it has finished dripping it is ready for display.

5. Keep your Kokedama in a well lit bright position until you water again.

Tip for succulent Kokedama’s – When in doubt it is better to under water than over water. Succulents are hardy, require little moisture and prefer dry conditions.

How to Care for your Swiss Cheese Plant

Swiss Cheese Plants (Monstera Deliciosa) originate from the humid tropical rainforests of Mexico.  In their natural habitat they grow up tree trunks in search of light, but in pots they are slower growing. Their common name comes from the slits in their dark green leaves.  These plants are a favorite of ours as they are peculiar looking and make a great statement piece in any room but best of all they are easy to care for.

Light – The Swiss Cheese Plant prefers bright indirect light.  It will not tolerate direct sunlight and the leaves may begin to yellow. Not enough light can slow growth down. A bright well lit living room or bedroom would be an ideal spot.

Water – Water weekly, or whenever the top 1 inch of soil feels dry, and allow it to drain completely.

Humidity –  Prefers humidity and a warm environment. Never let soil dry completely. Mist leaves with a spray bottle.

Fertilize – These plants like to be fertilized once a month with a diluted solution during the growing seasons (summer + spring).


Top Three reasons why we love the “Swiss Cheese Plant”

1. It is easy to grow – it virtually thrives on neglect.

2. Its glossy, Swiss-cheese like leaves make a naturally beautiful statement in any style of home.

3. They can be grown big or small making them perfect for both tiny apartments or large open-plan homes.

Keep your Fiddle Leaf Fig fit as a fiddle

The Fiddle Leaf Fig is rapidly becoming Australia’s most popular indoor plant.  It has attractive, big glossy leaves and is a low maintenance evergreen plant that is troubled by few pests.  A truly beautiful feature piece for the home or office.  It is easy to see why it has grown so quickly in popularity. Follow our tips below to keep your fiddle leaf fig fit as a fiddle.

The fiddle leaf thrives indoors in a well-lit position away from direct sunlight.  Generally, the fiddle leaf fig enjoys the kind of bright light environment most houses and apartments provide. The fiddle leaf fig prefers some humidity and will tolerate indoor temperatures just fine.  To ensure even growth, rotate the plant every on occasion.

Your Fiddle Leaf Fig should only be watered when the surface of the potting mix becomes dry.  When watering give it a drenching so water is draining from the bottom of the pot and leave it to slowly dry out again.  Fiddle Leaf Figs enjoy consistent watering to keep them moist but not soggy. Water well during the growing season (spring and summer) and reduce watering in the cooler months.  Don’t let your plant sit in too much water as it may develop root rot.  If you notice the leaves are limp and floppy you are probably under watering your Fiddle Leaf Fig. Brown spots on the leaves are generally related to too much water.

Managing soil moisture is critical to success with Fiddle Leaf Figs. Grow plants in a rich, well-drained potting mix including part bark and perlite. It’s generally time to re-pot your Fiddle Leaf Fig when the roots are growing out of the drainage holes.  When your Fiddle Leaf Fig is still small and growing rapidly, you may need to re-pot it every year.  Liquid fertiliser application monthly during the growing season (spring and summer )will ensure vigorous growth.

Wipe the leaves of your Fiddle Leaf Fig regularly with a soft cloth to remove dust and improve the glossy appearance.  Dust can affect the pores of the leaves and make it difficult for the leaves to function.
