Because of this sometimes additional light is needed. But there are some plants which can thrive in low light naturally. Here are 5 low-light indoor plants that will thrive even if your windows don't provide bright light.
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Although their creepy crawly name can be scary, they are a delight to every plant parent. Spider plants are infact among the most popular houseplants to grow. Spider plants can be grown as hanging or trailing plants in baskets or pots. They will survive for a long time in low light conditions, including artificial light. Make sure to water regularly to prevent the soil from drying out.
