There are many great things about living in the Midwest, however something that can be challenging in the winter months is taking care of your plants. From Mid-November to Mid-March we can expect to experience less sunlight which not only affects our moods it affects the moods of our plants! I have found over the years it’s easier to purchase plants that do best in low light environments to avoid watching my plant babies struggle each winter. So if you experience the same Winters as us, your home doesn’t have a lot of natural light or if you just want to worry less about your plants we are sharing our top 10 low light plants.
Also, if you are just starting out being a plant parent or dont have the best track record of keeping your plants alive Danielle shared a post with some kitchen plants even you won’t kill that you should check out.
Pro Tip: Low light doesn’t mean your plants don’t enjoy light. All plants thrive off light and just die a slower death if they have none – so be sure there is at least some light in your placement. It can also be helpful to move them in a sunny spot for the day to recharge!
