27 BEST Low-Light Indoor Plants (That are easy to care for!)

Picture this: you’re living in a cozy apartment with limited natural light, but you still crave the beauty and serenity that indoor plants bring. You might think your options are limited, but fear not! There’s a whole world of low light houseplants waiting to transform your space into a refreshing and inviting environment.

In this article, we’ll explore the best low light houseplants that can adapt to various indoor conditions, from dimly lit corners to rooms illuminated solely by fluorescent lighting. We’ll also share essential tips for growing these plants successfully, (no green thumb required!) so you can enjoy their beauty and reap their numerous benefits.

Whether you’re a seasoned plant parent or a novice looking to add some greenery to your space, this guide will help you create a stunning indoor garden that will make your home feel more vibrant and inviting, no matter how much natural light you have to work with.

Tips for Growing Low Light Indoor Plants

Growing low light indoor plants can be a rewarding experience, but it does require some special attention and care. By following these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to create the perfect environment for your plants to grow, even in the most challenging lighting conditions.

Avoid Overwatering

One of the most common mistakes plant owners make is overwatering their low light plants. Since these plants grow more slowly and use less water, it’s crucial to let the soil dry out between waterings. Stick your finger about an inch into the soil; if it feels dry, it’s time to water. Remember, it’s better to underwater than to overwater, as too much moisture can lead to root rot and other issues.

Use Well-Draining Potting Mix

To further prevent overwatering and root rot, use a well-draining potting mix specifically designed for indoor plants. These mixes often contain ingredients like perlite, pumice, or coconut coir, which help excess water drain away from the roots while still retaining some moisture. This is especially important for any new plant you bring home from the store. They are usually potted in a coco coir soil mix that will hold onto more water than you want! So be sure to re-pot them into different soil when you get home. (A cactus and succulent mix, or an indoor plant soil with added perlite would be a good choice!)

Additionally, it’s crucial to choose the right pot size for your low-light houseplants. Avoid using pots that are too large, as they can hold excessive amounts of water, leading to soggy soil and potential root rot. Opt for a pot that’s only slightly larger than the plant’s root ball, allowing enough room for growth while preventing waterlogged conditions. If you have moist soil for longer than a week, then it’s time to consider switching to a better draining soil or pot.

And, as you may have guessed, when repotting your plants, always choose a container with drainage holes to allow excess water to escape! This is especially important for plants in low light!

Maintain Proper Temperature and Humidity

Most low light houseplants prefer temperatures between 60°F and 75°F (15°C and 24°C). This is especially true for tropical plants. The only reason I mention temprrature is because low light conditions combined with low temperatures can lead to slower evaporation, keeping the soil moist for longer periods. This can increase the risk of root rot, a common issue for houseplants. 

Avoid placing your plants near cold drafts or heat sources, as extreme temperature fluctuations can stress them out.

Many low light plants also benefit from higher humidity levels, which you can achieve by placing a humidity tray nearby, misting the leaves occasionally, or grouping plants together.

Fertilize Sparingly

Since low light plants grow more slowly, they require less fertilizer than their sun-loving counterparts. Overfertilizing can lead to salt buildup in the soil and damage the roots. Stick to a weak, balanced fertilizer solution once a month during the growing season (spring and summer), and avoid fertilizing altogether during the winter months when growth slows down even more.

Watch for Signs of Stretching

Even low light plants need some light to survive, and if they’re not getting enough, they may start to stretch or grow leggy in search of more light. If you notice your plant becoming taller and spindly with more space between leaves, it’s a sign that it needs more light. Try moving it closer to a window or adding a supplemental light source, like a grow light, to keep it compact and healthy.

By following these tips and paying attention to your plants’ needs, you’ll be able to create a thriving indoor jungle, even in the darkest corners of your home.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air? This is due to a combination of factors, including poor ventilation, off-gassing from furniture and carpets, and the use of cleaning products and personal care items. Fortunately, many low light houseplants are excellent at removing toxins from the air, such as formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia.

NASA’s famous Clean Air Study found that plants like Snake Plants, Peace Lilies, and Pothos are particularly effective at purifying the air. By adding these plants to your home or office, you can create a healthier environment for yourself and those around you.

Boost Mood and Productivity

Being around plants has been shown to have a positive effect on mental health. Studies have found that people who work in environments with plants report lower levels of stress, anxiety, and depression compared to those in plant-free spaces. The presence of plants can also improve concentration, creativity, and overall productivity.

Think about it this way: when you’re surrounded by the calming presence of plants, it’s easier to focus on the task at hand and feel more motivated to tackle challenges. So, if you’re looking for a simple way to boost your mood and productivity, consider adding some low light houseplants to your space.

Enhance Home Decor

Low light houseplants are a stylish addition to any home decor. From modern ZZ Plants to bohemian trailing Pothos, they bring natural beauty and texture to any room. These plants also soften spaces by hiding sharp lines (such as corners and ceiling joints) thereby creating a more inviting and comfortable atmosphere.

In conclusion, low light houseplants are an excellent choice for bringing nature indoors, regardless of the available natural light. By selecting the right plants and providing proper care, you can create a thriving indoor garden that enhances your space and well-being.

The key to success is understanding each plant’s unique needs and adapting your care routine accordingly. With patience and attention, you’ll be rewarded with a lush, vibrant collection that brings joy for years.

Don’t let a lack of natural light discourage you from embracing the world of low light houseplants. Start small with hardy options like ZZ Plants or Pothos, and gradually expand as you gain experience. Soon, you’ll have a home filled with the calming presence of plants, wondering how you ever lived without them.

Explore the wonderful world of low light houseplants and discover the many joys and benefits they offer. Your journey to a greener, more vibrant life starts now!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is considered low light for houseplants?

Low light conditions are typically defined as areas that receive no direct sunlight and are located more than 5 feet away from a window. These spaces may feel dimly lit to the human eye, but many plants have adapted to thrive in these conditions. Examples of low light areas include north-facing rooms, bathrooms with small windows, and offices with fluorescent lighting.

Can low light plants survive without any natural light?

While some low light plants can survive in spaces with no natural light, such as rooms with only fluorescent lighting, most will benefit from at least some exposure to natural light. If you have a plant in a room with no windows, consider moving it to a brighter spot for a few hours each week to help it maintain its health and vigor. Alternatively, you can use artificial grow lights to provide your plants with the light they need to thrive.

How often should I water my low light houseplants?

The watering needs of low light plants can vary depending on the specific species, the size of the plant and pot, and the humidity levels in your home. As a general rule, low light plants require less water than those grown in brighter conditions, as they tend to grow more slowly and use less moisture. To determine when to water your low light plants, check the soil moisture by sticking your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, it’s time to water. If the soil still feels damp, wait a few more days and check again. It’s important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot and other issues.

Title 30 Best Boho Plants to create a chic bohemian interior with decorative lines, spots, and a birds nest fern plant

Indoor plants bring a touch of nature into your bohemian-inspired spaces! But which ones will make your space look boho instead of farmhouse, or minimalist? This list of boho plants is sure to add that touch of casual comfort into your bohemian style room! So let’s dig in!

What is Boho Design?

From the artistically disheveled to the carefully curated, boho design encapsulates a variety of styles and influences. It is a collection of eclectic pieces and patterns that come together in a way that speaks of comfort, but doesn’t scream clutter. It’s color palette is colorful but not overwhelmingly so. It’s relaxing, it’s comforting, and it’s distinctly personal. 

Boho design incorporates various textures, patterns and materials to create a space that looks effortlessly cool and lived-in. And one of the most important elements in a boho style space is the plants.

How to Style These Plants to look Bohemian

One of the most important things to consider when placing your boho plants is to use various textures and patterns that complement your color scheme. This should align with using natural materials among your design such as:

  • ceramic pots
  • macrame plant hangers made from natural materials
  • plant stands to create multiple layers (to mimic natural plant layering) 
  • pots that have indigo textiles (mimicking waters and deep, lush colors found within nature)
  • wicker or braided baskets (more natural materials!)

So now that you know how to style your house plants, let’s get on to which plants to use to create the ultimate boho vibes!

Indoor Palms for Boho Design

Indoor palms are a quintessential element of boho design. With their broad, feather-like leaves, these plants deliver a significant impact when it comes to creating a natural, carefree, and unique vibe. They not only soften the indoor environment but also purify the air. They are great for anchoring the corner of a room (making small spaces look larger), as well as they can frame out personal spaces within a larger space. Overall, if you’re wanting a boho design, then you NEED at least one palm! 

Needing help with your palms? Check out my post on Palm Plant Care!

*Note: Whenever you bring a palm tree home, you MUST treat it for spider mites! This can be a simple spray down with neem oil. But I’ve found that the majority of palm trees die when they get to their new home because of these near-invisible pests… NOT because of poor care. So please save your palm tree and just treat it from the beginning!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why are plants so important in Boho design?

Plants play a pivotal role in Boho design because they complement the nature-inspired, eclectic, and carefree vibe of this interior style. Indoor plants bring in the freshness and tranquility of the outdoors, while adding varied textures and shades of green that match the earthy, eclectic boho style.

How to care for indoor plants in Boho living spaces?

Every type of plant requires different care. However, most indoor plants that fit with boho interiors are either tropical or desert plants. These plants do best with strong, indirect light and lots of humidity, or lots of bright, direct light with infrequent waterings respectively. It’s essential to understand your plant’s specific needs to make sure that you are providing the correct sunlight, water, soil, and temperature to ensure its success in your space.

Can outdoor plants be used in Boho design?

While outdoor plants can sometimes be used indoors, it depends on the plant variety and your living conditions. Some outdoor plants can survive indoors if they receive enough light and proper care, but it’s generally easier to use plants already adapted to indoor environments. This is because most outdoor plants require lots of sunlight, as well as distinct seasons to maintain its healthy lifecycle. But once again, this all depends on the type of plant you are trying to move indoors.

How many plants should I have in one room for a Boho look?

Boho design embraces a mix-and-match, maximalist approach, but the number of plants would depend on the size of the room and the amount of natural light it receives. It’s not about crowding the space but creating a harmonious, lush look. Start with a few and add more as you see fit. And remember, just as each person’s wardrobe fits their personal preferences and lifestyle, so should your indoor space fit your own personal desires and lifestyle.

25 Best Low Light Indoor Succulents for Busy Plant Parents

Are you a plant parent with a busy schedule? Do you want to add some greenery to your low light space but don’t have the time to dedicate to high maintenance plants? Look no further. In this article, we’ve compiled a list of the 25 best low light succulents that are perfect for busy people like you. These succulent plants are not only easy to care for, but they also share a lot of the same benefits of other tropical houseplants, such as improving air quality and reducing stress levels. From snake plants to haworthias, this list is compiled to not only bring you some great options to choose from, but to also show you some unique varieties that will make your space stand out! So sit back, relax, and discover which low light succulent is perfect for your space and your lifestyle!

1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria trifasciata)

One of the most popular low light succulents for busy plant parents is the snake plant (aka the mother-in-law’s tongue). This high level of popularity is mainly due to the fact that this plant is incredibly resilient and adaptable, making it perfect for those who tend to forget to water. Its long, upright leaves come in a variety of shades and patterns, from dark green to variegated yellow and green, adding a touch of sophistication to any space. Most people use this plant as a type of living sculpture within their spaces due to its tall, vertical shape as well as because it can tolerate very low light levels (just be sure to add lots of well-draining soil and let it dry out a bit in between watering!)

Aside from its attractive appearance, the snake plant is also known for its air-purifying capabilities. It can remove toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene from the air, making it a great addition to any home or office. Snake plant is also one of our unique indoor plants due to its ability to release oxygen at night, making it ideal for the bedroom. It has been shown to improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels, making it a perfect companion for busy, overworked individuals, or anyone else looking to de-stress their lives!

If you’re looking for a low maintenance, yet visually stunning plant, look no further than the snake plant. Its durability, air-purifying properties, and therapeutic benefits make it a top choice for any plant parent. Then, for care information about this plant, check out my post on Snake Plant Care!

2. Baby Jade

Another great succulent option for busy plant parents is the Baby Jade. This small succulent, also known as the Crassula ovata ‘Baby Jade’, is easy to care for and can thrive in low light conditions. It is characterized by its small, round leaves that resemble the original jade plant. The main difference is the size of the plant. Like the Jade plant, the Baby Jade can be shaped into a bonsai tree, but its overall size will be much more compact and smaller than the regular Jade. This can be perfect if you’re working with small spaces, or you need something for your office.

Similar to the snake plant, Baby Jade also has air-purifying properties that can promote a healthier environment, as well as doesn’t need a lot of water. This makes it a perfect choice for those who want to enjoy the benefits of having a plant in their space, without having to worry about keeping to a demanding watering schedule.

3. Haworthia cooperi var. Obtusa

If you’re interested in adding more variety to your succulent collection, the Haworthia Windows ‘Obtusa’ is another great option to consider. This unique succulent has translucent window-like areas on its leaves that allow sunlight to enter and reach its inner cells. It is different from other haworthia windows varieties as the leaf tips are more rounded and less angular. Then, when purposefully stressed (with too much light, or low water), then the leaves will turn a beautiful reddish color.

The Haworthia cooperi can also do well in a low light setting becuase its translucent window-like areas on its leaves allow sunlight to enter and reach its inner cells, making it more efficient at capturing light waves. This feature makes it a great option for those who don’t have a lot of natural light in their homes.

So, if you’re looking to add more variety to your succulent collection, Haworthia Windows var. Obtusa is definitely worth considering!

4. Panda Plant Kalanchoe

Another succulent to consider for a low-light house plant is the Panda Plant Kalanchoe, which has thick and fuzzy leaves that is said to resemble the coat of a panda. This Panda Plant, also known as Kalanchoe tomentosa, is native to Madagascar and is perfect for busy plant parents who want to add a touch of whimsy to their collection without high maintenance needs. 

Similar to other succulents, the Panda Plant Kalanchoe does not require a lot of watering, and it thrives in either in bright, indirect light or low light environments. The panda plant can actually get leaf burn if it is in too much hot, direct sunlight. So if you’re looking to add some soft texture to your space, the Panda Plant is definitely worth considering.

5. Purple Heart Tradescantia

Next, let’s take a look at another low light succulent, the Purple Heart Tradescantia.

Purple Heart Tradescantia is a low light succulent that many plant parents adore. Its stunning purple leaves add a pop of color to any indoor space and in time, its long, trailing vines will create an eye-catching effect, especially when planted with other vertical, green plants such as snake plants. This succulent also prefers to be left alone and it can do well in low to bright light conditions.

Just make sure that you do leave it alone. I’ve found that my tradescantia don’t like to be touched (or played with by my cat!) and being handled too much can cause the leaves to turn brown. So if you’re wanting these gorgeous purple leaves, make sure to give it a well-draining soil and pot, let it dry between watering, and then try not to touch it!

This plant also does extremely well with a grow light. So if you have no-light locations, you can have your tradescantia with a little grow light (like this one!) and it will be perfectly happy for you!

6. Ogre Ears aka Gollum Crassula

Moving on to another low light succulent, let’s take a look at Ogre Ears. This unique succulent has thick, fleshy leaves that are shaped like, as you can probably guess from its common name… ogre ears! Its scientific name is Crassula ovata ‘Gollum Jade’, and it doesn’t dissapoint!

Like many succulents, Ogre Ears is low maintenance and prefers well-draining soil and infrequent watering. This plant can thrive in a variety of light conditions, from bright, indirect light down to low light conditions. Ogre Ears is an excellent choice for those looking to add some quirky character to their succulent garden. Its interesting shape and texture make it a standout among other succulents. Plus, it’s a great conversation starter with guests! Oh, and my kids just absolutely love them too! There’s just something about Ogre Ears that always makes me smile 🙂

7. Ponytail Palm

Next up, the Ponytail Palm, (another one of our indoor succulents for low light) is a visually stunning indoor plant that looks fabulous as a specimen plant. The Beaucarnea recurvata, or Ponytail Palm, has leaves that grow in a long, curly pattern that resembles a ponytail, hence the name. The leaves are thick and leathery, which helps the plant retain moisture in dry conditions that have low humidity. The trunk of the Ponytail Palm is also quite unique, with a bulbous base that can store water to help the plant survive periods of drought. This also helps it to require very little attention as it thrives with thorough, infrequent watering.

The only thing that I can add about this beautiful, fun plant, is that you should not get a ponytail palm if you have cats in your home. In my experience, cats LOVE to chew on this plant. This transforms it from a gorgeous curly head of leaves to a rather unsightly firecracker top. I actually had to re-home mine because of my cats (after several failed attempts at cat deterrents). But don’t worry, my aunt is loving her new ponytail palm tree, and she’s gotten it looking gorgeous again! Haha!

8. Window Haworthia

Like the Ponytail Palm, the Window Haworthia is a beautiful succulent that is also a relatively low maintenance plant. It can survive in a variety of soil conditions and requires infrequent watering. The Windows Haworthia species is also a type of haworthia that has translucent leaves. These “windows” on the leaves can capture more light than their solid-leaf haworthia siblings. This makes it the perfect choice for a location that has less light, and it can sometimes even  prefer a bit of shade over a sunny spot.

9. ZZ Plant

The ZZ plant is a versatile succulent that is perfect for busy plant parents. Not only can it tolerate low light conditions, but it’s also drought-tolerant and can go weeks without being watered, trust me. I seriously neglect mine. (Sorry little ZeeZee!) However, this just proves that it is a great choice for those who may forget to water their plants regularly, or those who have a busy schedule.

The reason the ZZ plant, or Zamioculcas zamiifolia, can do so well with little water is because of its root system that contains little bulbs that store water. So they can do well with thorough watering to replenish the bulbs’ water, then periods of drought.

This, plus the fact that ZZ plants are notoriously easy to propagate from leaf and stem cuttings, and you definitely have a winner on your hands!

10. Burro’s Tail

The Burro’s Tail succulent, also called a donkey’s tail, is a unique and beautiful plant that is perfect for busy plant parents. With its cascading stems that can grow up to three feet long, the Burro’s Tail is a favorite among succulent enthusiasts. This hardy little plant is incredibly low maintenance, requiring only occasional watering and minimal attention.

One thing to keep in mind with the Burro’s Tail is that it prefers bright indirect light to keep the short, stubby leaves. While it can handle some low light conditions, it won’t thrive in complete darkness and in a lower light level, it will tend to have some stretching between the leaf joints.

Another thing to note is that the leaves are delicate and can easily fall off if the plant is bumped or moved too much. This means that it needs to go in a place that has little traffic where it could be bumped or brushed.

So, even though this indoor succulent can be a bit of a diva, it’s definitely a succulent that looks incredible when it gets what it wants… (Is anyone else thinking of the song Prima Donna here?! :D)

11. Zebra Plant

The Zebra Plant, also known as Haworthia fasciata, is a charming succulent that is easy to care for and its striped leaves are absolutely stunning! Native to South Africa, the Zebra Plant prefers bright, indirect light but can also tolerate low light conditions. The only comment I can make here is that when given bright light, such as in a south-facing window, it will stay short and compact and will require more watering. But in low-light environments, slow down on the water, and also expect stretching. The leaves will start getting taller with fewer stripes, but even with the stretching, your zebra cactus will still look great.

For more information on how to care for this plant, check out my post on Zebra Plant Care.

12. Jade Plant

The Jade Plant, also known as the Crassula Ovata, is a popular choice among succulent enthusiasts. With its small, shiny, round leaves, it adds a touch of elegance to any space. But what makes it truly remarkable is its resilience.

Like most other succulents, the Jade plant can do well with infrequent watering since it stores water in both its stem and leaves. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it’s essential to let the soil dry out completely between watering sessions, especially when it is in lower light conditions. But with proper care, the Jade Plant can grow up to six feet tall and live for decades. This makes it one of the best succulents to bring home!

13. Christmas Cactus & Thanksgiving Cactus

Speaking of hardy succulents, the Christmas Cactus and Thanksgiving Cactus are must-haves for any busy plant parent. These flowering plants are perfect for those who want to add some color to their low-light space. While both plants belong to the same genus, they differ in their blooming season. The Christmas Cactus blooms in December, while the Thanksgiving Cactus blooms in November, although forced blooming can cause your cactus to have flowers at any time of the year. This is why some people simply refer to both of these species as holiday cacti.

These cacti do like a bit more moisture than other succulents, since they are originally from tropical regions that have a lot of humidity. This moisture is especially vital during blooming time, since the blooms can drop if the plant gets too dry. The best method here is to water them thoroughly and let the soil drain before putting them back in their saucer. For more information on caring for your cactus, check out my post on Christmas Cactus Plant Care, or if you’re having issues with your holiday cactus, check out my post on troubleshooting problems with Christmas Cactus.

14. String of Pearls

The String of Pearls succulent is a unique and eye-catching plant that is perfect for those who love to add a touch of whimsy to their indoor garden. This low-light succulent is known for its slender, trailing stems that are adorned with small, round leaves that resemble pearls. This makes it perfect for hanging planters, with trailing stems that can grow up to three feet long.

Like many succulents, String of Pearls is relatively low-maintenance and prefers indirect light and well-draining soil. However, it does require a little more attention when it comes to watering. These cacti like to be kept moist, but not too wet. Be sure to water them thoroughly and let the soil drain before putting them back in their saucer. If you are worried about keeping the moisture consistent, then I would recommend buying a soil moisture meter. This will fix ALL of your watering issues!

Its dark purple-green leaves with waxy texture and smooth surface make it an intriguing addition to any corner of your home. This succulent is a natural air purifier, removing toxins from the air and creating a healthier environment. 

Like the original green ZZ plant, the Raven ZZ Plant is also easy to care for and can survive with minimal watering. In low light it can grow pretty slowly, making it very low-maintenance. But when there is new growth, it comes as a beautiful bright green that contrasts starkly against the dark green mature leaves.

If you are a busy plant parent who struggles to find time for plant care, Raven ZZ Plant is the perfect choice for you. Its resilience and low maintenance needs make it a hassle-free addition to your indoor plant collection.

18. Pincushion Cactus

Pincushion Cactus, also known as Mammillaria, is a cactus that is perfect for busy plant parents. It requires minimal care and adds an unusual element to any collection. Pincushion Cactus prefers soil that drains well and should only be watered occasionally. Its unique appearance is due to the small white or yellow flowers that bloom from its spiky stems. 

This small cactus also does well in low-light conditions but it won’t flower as often unless given more light. This doesn’t stop it though from being a cute little cactus to put on your shelf!

19. Haworthia ‘White Ghost’

Haworthia ‘White Ghost’ is a strikingly beautiful low-light succulent that is known for its ghostly appearance. This unique plant has fleshy, translucent leaves with white markings, making it look almost ethereal. It can be grown both indoors or outdoors, but it prefers bright indirect sunlight or low- to medium-light conditions. Like most succulents, Haworthia ‘White Ghost’ does not require frequent watering, and it needs well-draining soil, especially when it is in low light.

It prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions as well.

One of the great things about Kalanchoe is how easy it is to care for. It only needs to be watered once a week, and its soil should be well-draining to prevent overwatering. This succulent does well in a range of temperatures and can even thrive in drought-like conditions.

21. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a popular succulent known for its medicinal properties. It’s easy to care for, making it an excellent choice for busy plant parents. Most people believe that aloe vera needs a lot of bright, full sun, but it actually does better in partial shade. If given too much light (especially when it is in a pot and doesn’t have the cooling effect of being planted in the ground), the leaves can turn a blue-ish color. When this happens, you know that your plant is stressed and it is best if you move it into a lower-light spot before the leaf tips turn brown. Don’t confuse this with a dark green color, though, which is a sign of overwatering!

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the aloe vera plant has been used for centuries for its healing properties. The gel inside its leaves can be applied topically to soothe burns, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. It’s also known to purify the air of harmful pollutants, making it a great addition to any indoor space.

If you’re looking for a low-light succulent that’s not only beautiful but also has proven health benefits, Aloe Vera is an excellent choice.

What Makes the Best Pots?

There are three keys that you need to look for in the right container. The perfect succulent pot would consider:

  • Drainage
  • Material
  • Size

Let’s address these things one at a time.

#1: Proper Drainage

I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but let me stress this fact… succulent pots NEED drainage holes!!!!

Technically, you CAN keep succulents alive in pots without drainage holes by simply adding only small amounts of water at a time. I know, because I’ve done this. But speaking from experience, these succulents never thrive like the succulents that I have in my pots with good drainage. This is because when your pots have proper drainage, you can water your plant as much as you want at each watering and the excess water will simply drain out.

But with pots that have no drainage holes (such as the pretty glass containers they show on Pinterest), these pots will leave you to always be fighting your moisture levels, since one little extra watering could potentially kill your whole plant. Personally, I tend to under-water these succulents to avoid accidentally giving them too much water. But as a result, my succulent plants are never as healthy.

So long story short… get a pot with drainage holes! Just do it!

#2: Pot Material

I would argue that pot material is the least important thing out of the three keys for choosing the best pot for succulents. This is because pot material alone will not kill your succulents.

Terra Cotta/Ceramic Pots

Terracotta pots, or ceramic pots, are definitely the best choice for succulent pots. This is due to the fact that the clay can actually soak up some of the excess moisture, giving your plant a little extra buffer between wet and dry phases. Be careful in the winter, though, as wet ceramic pots (in cold temperatures) can take longer to dry out. This could potentially cause overwatering problems for people who tend to water too much in the winter.

So the best pot material for succulents is terra cotta pots, unless you tend to overwater your plants during the winter. 

Plastic Pots

Plastic pots and plastic containers are also a fine choice for succulents as long as they have sufficient drainage, are heavy enough to not tip over, and are not left outdoors.

Some succulents grow more vertically and can become top heavy. Plastic pots are usually lighter and easily fall over in these situations. To fix this, use sand instead of perlite in your succulent soil mix. This will help to weigh down any tipsy pots!

Next, if you are keeping your succulent outdoors, I do not recommend using plastic pots. This is first because of their higher chances of falling over due to their low weight. Second, plastic pots have a tendency to heat up and dry out faster when exposed to high temperature than clay pots or concrete pots. And third, plastic pots can freeze and deteriorate quickly in very cold climates. This is why I only recommend plastic pots for indoor use.

Metal Pots

Metal pots and metal containers usually have the same heat issue as plastic pots. For this reason, you should keep a metal pot indoors only. If you want to move your succulents outdoors, then a good choice would be a terracotta or concrete pot.

Concrete Pots

Concrete pots are similar to clay pots in that they are both a breathable material. Concrete pots are particularly good in outdoor spaces where they will be durable and protective to your succulents. Just be sure to keep in mind that real concrete pots can be extremely heavy. This is good for areas that are prone to high winds (especially if you live within hurricane areas), since your concrete planters will be sure to protect your plants when the weather gets tough!

#3: Size of Pot

Pot size is, in my opinion, the MOST OVERLOOKED problem of succulent killers. Because if your pot is too big, your succulent will die!!! 

This is more of a water problem than a size problem. If you have a large pot, then you will have lots of soil that will be wet. This soil will have water where the small plant roots can’t reach. This extra, unreachable water will cause too much moisture to sit for too long and will lead to root rot.

Even with proper drainage, you need to make sure that the walls of your pot are only an inch or two bigger than your succulents’ current pot (on all sides). This is why a lot of succulent planters tend to be shallow pots that can fit a few succulents together in an arrangement, but that are still shallow enough that the small roots can still reach the bottom of the pot.

Potting Multiple Succulents Together

If you want to pot multiple succulents together in a succulent arrangement or succulent planter, then your best bet is to buy a large, shallow container. Then, make sure that it is stuffed full of succulents! This will help it have enough roots everywhere so you won’t have those pockets of soil that the roots can’t reach…

Pot Recommendations:

  • All-Around Favorite: D’vine Dev Terracotta Pots
  • Best for Shorter Succulents (And Best Value!): Brajtt Plant Pots
  • Best for a Group of Succulents: Kimisty 10 Inch Round Succulent Planter Bowl
  • Best for Hanging Succulents: Mkono 8 inch Ceramic Hanging Planter
  • Best for Large Succulents: Aveyas 6/8/10 inch Ceramic Planter Pot

#1: All-Around Favorite – Terracotta Pots by D’vine Dev

These pots are fantastic because they are not only terracotta pots, but they also have drainage holes, the perfect-fit saucer, a drainage net (to keep the soil from coming out), and a “scratch pad” to put under your pot. This ensures that your pot has great drainage, but also that it keeps your surfaces dry and scratch-free! 

These guys have really thought of everything that an indoor succulent grower needs out of a pot. And that’s why it’s my all-around favorite set of succulent pots!

#2: Best for Shorter Succulents (And Best Value) – Brajtt Succulent Pots

These white, modern pots are perfect for your shorter succulents that don’t have deep root systems. I love that each pot has a small drainage hole, and they come with a functional, stylish bamboo tray to catch any excess water before it stains your window ledge.

And to get 8 pots for only $14.99 (at the time of writing this post)… that’s an AMAZING deal!!!

#3: Best for a Group of Succulents – Kimisty 10 inch Round Succulent Planter Bowl

This planter dish is perfect for succulent arrangements or succulent gardens! It is a glazed ceramic pot with a drainage hole and a plug (to keep your surfaces clean!). It also has a gorgeous, airy stand and white decorative rocks to make your succulent garden go from amateur to professional!

I especially love the size of this planter dish, since most are only about 6” long. With this dish coming in at a solid 10” diameter, (choose the “large” size), it fits a lot of succulents!

#4: Best for Hanging Succulents – Mkono 8 Inch Ceramic Hanging Planter

I searched far and wide for the perfect hanging succulent planters, and this is the one that I finally discovered!

It is a sturdy glazed ceramic pot that comes with a removable drainage plug for excess water. It also comes with a rope and pre-drilled holes, so all you need now is a strong hook! This hanging pot is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

#5: Best For Large Succulents – Aveyas 6/8/10 Inch Ceramic Planter Pot

This sleek, modern pot is perfect for larger succulents! It comes with both a drainage plug and a saucer so you can really control the pot’s drain holes and protect your furniture. This pot also comes with a matching pot stand, a drainage net, and planter filler to add even more drainage to the bottom of your pot!

Your large succulents are definitely going to enjoy being in one of these!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do succulents need deep pots?

Larger succulents need deep pots, but small succulents would die in deep pots. The trick is to plant your succulent in a pot that is only an inch or two deeper than its current pot. This way, the root system will be able to reach the water all the way at the bottom of your pot.

Do succulents grow better in pots?

Most plants grow better when planted in the ground. However, if your environment isn’t hot and dry, then your succulents would actually prefer to be in a pot, where they will have better drainage and can be brought indoors when it gets cold or damp.

Can succulents stay in small pots?

Some small succulent varieties will stay perfectly happy in their small pots. However, some larger succulents will grow to where they don’t have enough room and will eventually need to be repotted into larger pots. This all depends on your type of succulent and its mature size and growth habit.

Do succulents like to be crowded?

Yes. If your succulents are in a wide pot, they do better if they are crowded. This lessens the possibility of your pot having drainage issues. It also makes the most beautiful succulent arrangements. So feel free to pack them in!

Do you put succulents in plastic pots?

Yes, you can. Just make sure that your pot still has good drainage. Don’t use plastic pots for outdoor succulents, though, as these tend to heat up, dry out, and fall over more than ceramic pots. For indoor use, however, plastic pots will be just fine.

What is the easiest succulent to grow?

There are a number of succulents that are easier to grow than others. These include haworthias, echeverias, and sedums. For a complete list, check out my post 12 Easiest Succulents to Grow Indoors.

How often should you water a succulent?

Generally, you should water your succulents once the soil has become dry, but before it begins to pull away from the sides of your pot. This is usually between every five to seven days, depending on the amount of sunlight, temperature, and season. Check out my post “How Often Should I Water my Succulent” for more details.

Top 5 Worst Herbs to Grow Indoors

Worst Herbs to Grow Indoors

We’ve all been there… bought a new plant baby, lovingly watered and nurtured it, gave it the perfect spot,… then cried as it withered away and died despite all your hard work. Been there, done that. So let’s just get this out in the open. Not all plants like being indoors. Some like more sun, others like the temperature fluctuations that come with the outdoors, others just need better air circulation… So let me help you stay away from those sad plant deaths and tell you which indoor herbs are the hardest to grow indoors.

*Note: These herbs can still be successfully grown indoors, but they will have more indoor plant deaths than their easy-to-grow herb counterparts. If one of your favorite herbs is on this list, you might just need to do some extra research before purchasing one of these plants for growing indoors.*

Worst Indoor Herbs #1: Basil

Basil is one of those herbs that everyone has because it’s so useful, but that dies in a lot of people’s care. This is because basil plants need a lot of sun to grow well, and a lot of water to keep it happy in the sun. When caring for my basil plant, I noticed that I had to water it at least once EVERY DAY during the summer to keep it happy. And with it being in the brightest spot in the house, it STILL produced small leaves. So that’s why it’s on my list of worst herbs to grow indoors… it needs a LOT of attention and is very difficult to produce those large, tasty leaves that are so much easier to grow outdoors.

Quick Tip: If you still want to grow basil indoors, try out one of the smaller-leaf basil such as a Thai basil. This will be easier to care for and will grow better indoors.

Worst Herbs to Grow Indoors - Basil

Worst Indoor Herbs #2: Cilantro

Cilantro makes the list of worst herbs to grow because it also needs a LOT of sunlight to grow. Most indoor cilantro plants that I see all have small leaves and are stretched because they aren’t getting enough sunlight. In order for cilantro plants to produce well, they need to have lots of sun and lots of space, which makes them one of the worst herbs to grow indoors.

Quick Tip: If you still want to grow cilantro indoors, then grow them in large flats and put in plenty of seeds. Then start another tray 4-6 weeks later, and maybe another tray after that. Then make sure that your cilantro has a dedicated grow light. This will help you feel okay about over-harvesting since you will have other trays growing. You will also be able to harvest each tray at once and before it begins to bolt (aka flower). This method of having different trays at different development stages (and each with their own light) is one way to successfully grow cilantro indoors.

Cilantro Plant

Worst Indoor Herbs #3: Italian Parsley

Just like cilantro, parsley makes this list of worst herbs to grow indoors based on the amount of light that it needs to produce large, harvest-worthy leaves. Indoors, parsley needs to be placed in a sunny window, and will need to be turned every other time that you water it to ensure even growth. Even with this, it might still not produce large enough leaves. Then it will need a dedicated plant light to stimulate large leaf growth.

If you want to grow parsley indoors, then I would suggest you use a curly leaf parsley (as opposed to flat-leaf parsley, such as the common Italian parsley). Curly leaf parsley is usually a bit easier to grow and will give you a better harvest than the flat-leaf parsley.

Parsley Plant

Worst Indoor Herbs #4: Dill

Dill is actually pretty easy to grow, however, this plant gets huge! Unless you’ve got a spare 3-4 feet to give this herb, then you won’t be able to keep it in your windowsill herb garden!

To grow dill indoors, try a fern-leaf variety, which will only grow to about 1.5-2 feet in height. You’ll still need to give it some space, but at least this smaller size is more realistic for an indoor plant.

Worst Indoor Herbs #5: Fennel

Fennel is one of the worst herbs to grow indoors because, like dill, it is also huge! Most fennel plants can reach up to 6 feet in height! I don’t know about you, but I DEFINITELY don’t have this type of space in my home! So while you can grow it from a small plant indoors, you’ll eventually want to bring it outdoors. This will allow the plant to have enough space to grow its large, onion-like bulbs (that are also edible!).

There aren’t really any options to grow this herb indoors, but if you want to overwinter it, you can grow it in large, deep pots outdoors during the summer. Then in the fall, cut it back to a few feet in height and bring it indoors. This way, it can continue to stay warm and grow throughout the winter. You can continue to harvest the leaves all winter long as it grows, and then simply move it back out the following spring before it really begins its spring-time growth.

Fennel Plant

Those are the 5 worst herbs to grow indoors! These herbs have been selected based on personal experience, as well as selected based on many other comments and suggestions made by others who have had difficulty with these plants.

IF you have difficulty growing herbs indoors, then I would suggest you get one of these indoor herb kits! These are simple, table-top systems that make growing herbs as easy as pushing a button. Seriously… these kits are amazingly simple and effective!

#1: Click & Grow Smart Gardens

Click & Grow’s Smart Gardens are simple to set up and easy to grow. Just attach the light, pop in the seed pods, and add water mixed with the provided nutrients. Then when you plug it in, a timer will automatically start, setting you up for 16 hours of lights on, and 8 hours of lights off. This is convenient for people who struggle with setting manual timers, but it might require you to get up early one day if you want it to turn off earlier in the evening.

Click & Grow offers 3-pod systems, 9-pod systems, or a bundled shelving set of 3, 9-pod systems totaling 27-pods. All of the features are the same regardless of size, so simply purchase according to your needs!


  • 3-pod system one of the cheapest indoor garden systems
  • relatively quiet
  • lights blink when low on water (effective reminder)
  • comes with height extenders to make the light taller or shorter
  • automatic 16 hours on, 8 hours off


  • no manual light settings

#2: Tasty Sprout by Aerogarden

This is a unique system as it was a mix of Aerogarden’s indoor systems along with Tasty’s low-cost practical cooking methods. What you get is a small, recipe-driven indoor herb system that appeals to the masses, but only has a few of Aerogarden’s touches.

If you are limited on space, or you want a cheap option to get started with indoor gardening, then this is the kit for you!

  • no manual timing system – run 18 hours on, 6 hours off from time it’s plugged in
  • only 12″ tall
  • made from a light plastic material
  • uses an aerator pump, which some people find to be too loud

#3: Aerogarden Harvest

The Aerogarden Harvest is the most basic of Aerogarden’s indoor garden systems (aside from their Tasty hybrid). That being said, it is still an amazing system! It uses a water pump system instead of an aerator pump, making it run silently when compared to the Tasty Sprout. The Harvest also has several buttons on the front to manually set your light timings. It also keeps track of how many days you’ve been growing, as well as tells you how many more days you have until you need to add more liquid fertilizer (included in purchase).

Overall, this 6-pod system is perfect for anyone who is serious about indoor gardening, but not quite ready to take the leap to one of the more expensive models.

Indoor Herb Garden Kit Aerogarden Harvest


  • Cheapest of the mainstream Aerogarden systems
  • quiet pump system
  • adjustable manual lighting settings


  • plastic build
  • takes up slightly more space than the 6-pod Harvest Elite

#4: Aerogarden Harvest Elite 360

At first glance, this system appears to be only a rounded, metal version of the Aerogarden Harvest. However, the Harvest Elite 360 has a few essential features that left customers feeling glad they made the upgrade.

First, the LCD display makes the system much more user-friendly than the Harvest. For example, you can simply choose the type of plants you are growing (such as herbs or flowers), and it will automatically set up the optimal growth settings for you.

Another game-changer is the vacation mode. By activating vacation mode, your system will automatically shorten the light times and decrease the water usage so you won’t have to worry about running out of water while you’re gone! This system really takes care of you! So if you want an indoor garden system that won’t die during your extended holidays, then you should consider the Harvest Elite!

Indoor Herb Garden Kits Aerogarden Harvest Elite 360


  • LCD display with manual timing adjustments
  • Suggested settings for different plant types
  • smaller than Harvest, but still fits 6 pods
  • Stainless Steel build
  • Vacation mode!!!


  • Several people complained that their LCD display was broken out-of-the-box and they had to get a replacement system from the company (free of charge, but took longer)
  • More expensive than the Harvest system

#5: Aerogarden Bounty Elite

Now this system truly has it all! With a touchscreen display you can connect it to your WiFi and use either your Alexa device or the Aerogarden app to adjust any settings, turn on/off your lights, and check on the status of your plants. The lights are also dimmable with the touch of a button, as well as has a sunrise/sunset setting to slowly fade in or out of the day.

Overall, this indoor herb garden kit has everything you need to be as involved or as hands-free as you want in the growing process! From the suggested settings and vacation mode, to the voice-command lights off, this system is any smart gardener’s dream come true!

Top 5 Easiest Herbs to Grow Indoors

Ever since I’ve been growing herbs indoors, I’ve noticed that some of my herbs grow lush and beautiful, but some of my herbs have the hardest time indoors. So I did my research to see if it was just me or if others were having problems with specific herbs in their indoor gardens as well. And do you know what I found??? Some herbs consistently do better than others when planted indoors! So if you’re starting an indoor herb garden (or just looking to expand) definitely try out this list of easy-to-grow indoor herbs first! Because everyone deserves to have a big, beautiful, and easy edible garden!!!

Easy Herbs to Grow Indoors #1: Rosemary

Rosemary is an extremely versatile herb. It is used to create butters, oils, vinegars, and dressings. It can also be used to flavor chicken, pork, or even fish. But my personal favorite way to use rosemary is to cook it into my breads and potatoes! Yum!!!

As an indoor edible, rosemary is extremely easy to grow. The biggest thing to watch for (or the main killer of this plant) is too much water. Especially in the winter when the plant isn’t actively growing.

Easy Herbs to Grow Indoors #2: Oregano

Oregano is a great herb to add into dressings, marinades, and sauces. It adds a homemade Italian taste to almost any pizza or pasta! And what’s the best thing about this herb?! It has a stronger flavor as a fresh herb, than it does when it’s dried. Which means that you can get along with a smaller plant, while still achieving that classic oregano taste!

To grow this herb, it needs to have a lot of sun, and dry out between watering. But don’t put any store-bought plants in your brightest windows ledge right away (unless it is winter-time). Instead, slowly acclimate your plant to warmer temperatures and brighter light by leaving it in the heat for 30 minutes more each day. This will ensure that any greenhouse-grown plant will have the time it needs to adjust!

For more in-depth instructions on how to care for this herb, check out my post, Indoor Oregano Plant Care!

Easy Herbs to Grow Indoors #3: Mint

It’s probably no wonder that mint made it onto my list of easiest herbs to grow indoors. If any of you have planted mint outdoors, you’ll know that this herb grows so well it can start becoming a weed! That’s why growing mint indoors can be a great solution for the lazy gardener who doesn’t want to be pulling mint sprigs out of their lawn!

To grow mint indoors, make sure that it gets plenty of direct sunlight. This, combined with a good vegetable fertilizer will help it to grow those large, minty leaves that everyone loves! Then, if it’s starting to die off, simply take some cuttings and root them in straight water! So simple!

For more information on how to grow your own mint plant indoors, check out my post Indoor Mint Plant Care!

Easy Herbs to Grow Indoors #4: Chives

From eggs to potatoes, and soups to salads, chives are my favorite herb to grow indoors! This is not only because it is easy to keep alive and thriving, but also because it can be put  on almost anything!!!

Chives will need a little more  water than these other Mediterranean herbs. But you still need to make sure that you don’t over-water your chives. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that the soil can get lightly dry in between watering. This will help to avoid fungus gnats and root rot, but still keep your chive plant happy!

Easy Herbs to Grow Indoors #5: Thyme

Thyme is a great herb to season your soups, sauces, and breads, as well as your chicken, potatoes, and rice. Thyme is also a great source of vitamin C, and has lots of great health benefits!

To grow thyme, the biggest thing you need to watch for is the watering. Thyme doesn’t like to be too wet, especially during the winter when it goes dormant. So make sure that you allow the soil to dry down to the first inch before you water it again.

For more in-depth information on how to grow thyme indoors, check out my post Indoor Thyme Plant Care.

That’s it for my list of the easiest herbs to grow indoors! If you are just starting out in your indoor gardening, then make sure to go easy on yourself by starting with one of these herbs first. Then you can add some of the harder herbs to grow as you master the basics! And if you’re looking for more indoor herb inspiration, check out my post, Top 5 Effortless Indoor Herb Kits!

The 5 BEST Vegetables to Grow Indoors

Here is a list of the 5 BEST vegetables to grow indoors. Based off of yield, ease, and practicality!

Whether you’re new to indoor gardening or an expert, it’s always good to know which vegetables you should actually be growing indoors, a.k.a. which ones will give you the most bang for your buck! And let me tell you, I’m not just going to list the vegetables that are the easiest to grow indoors. This is because a lot of people suggest vegetables only because they do well indoors. And strange enough, a lot of people suggest growing radishes indoors. Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I’ve actually eaten a radish! So even if I grew radishes in my home, I know that I still would never eat them.

So here’s my list of vegetables that are most commonly consumed, are easy to grow, and that give you good yields per plant. But remember, make sure that you are growing vegetables that you will actually eat. In the long run, it’s your own preferences that matter most when making this decision.
