Reviving Your Houseplants: How to Keep Indoor Plants Healthy in Low Light Conditions and Top 5 Picks

By Marrazzo’s

Warm greetings to our Marrazzo’s community!

Indoor plants are not just decorative—they’re a lifestyle. But when the light in our homes is more cozy than bright, how do we ensure our leafy friends stay happy? Marrazzo’s has the insight you need to keep those greens growing with gusto, even in less-than-ideal light. Plus, we’ve handpicked five plants that are particularly skilled at thriving in low light.

  1. Marrazzo’s Top 5 Low Light Indoor Plants:
    • Snake Plant (Sansevieria): Strikingly upright and resilient, the snake plant is a superb choice for less sunny spots.
    • ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia): With its glossy, emerald leaves, the ZZ plant is as tough as it is beautiful, requiring minimal light to stay lush.
    • Pothos (Epipremnum aureum): A favorite for its trailing vines, pothos is a champ in low light and a breeze to care for.
    • Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum): Brighten up a shady corner with the elegant peace lily, known for its air-purifying qualities and lovely white blooms.
    • Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior): The cast iron plant lives up to its name, being nearly indestructible and perfectly content with minimal light.
  2. Understanding Your Light: Get to know the light in your home to find the best nooks for your plant buddies.
  3. The Rotation Ritual: Turn your plants a notch weekly to promote even growth.
  4. Water Wisely: Less light means less water. Allow the soil to approach dryness before watering again.
  5. Pruning and Cleaning: A tidy plant is a healthy plant. Snip off any sad leaves and dust the rest for optimal health.
  6. Light Supplements: Consider grow lights to give your plants a boost when the sun can’t break through.
  7. Thoughtful Fertilization: Go easy on the feed—plants in low light need less fertilizer, so use a gentle hand.
  8. Potting and Repotting: When roots begin to crowd, give your plants a new home with plenty of room to grow and proper drainage.

Even the darkest corners of your home can become a lush, plant-filled haven with the right care and choices. And whenever you need advice or want to expand your collection, Marrazzo’s is here with open doors and open hearts.

Happy planting, and see you soon!

Cheerfully, The Marrazzo’s Team
