Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #4: Boston Fern – Nephrolepis exaltata

Boston ferns are one of the easiest ferns to care for. Not only do they enjoy low-light conditions, but they also prefer cooler temperatures. So this is a must-have for any dark and cold basement bedrooms (or any cool, low light location in the house!) Just make sure to mist it daily to keep the fronds from turning brown.

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #5: Guzmania Bromeliad – Guzmania lingulata

This bromeliad does great in low light bedrooms and is a relatively easy plant to care for. Make sure that it is lightly misted once per day in order to keep it healthy and to encourage the plant to bloom! Once Guzmania is done blooming, it will grow new plants to the side, while the central bromeliad dies. In this way, with the purchase of one plant, you can get many more bromeliads that will last you forever!

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #6: Pothos – Epipremnum aureum

Pothos is one plant that I believe every beginner should own! It can tolerate a variety of light levels (including low light levels), and it is very tolerant of neglect. Pothos also looks great in a variety of planters and can be trained as either an upright, vine, a full and bushy plant, or a hanging vine. Make sure to check out my post on Pothos Vine Care!

Snake plant is also one of my absolute favorite plants! It does well in low-light conditions, as well as can tolerate quite a bit of neglect. It is also a very popular plant for modern home design! Make sure to check out all of the different variations!

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #8: Peace Lily – Spathiphyllum wallisii

Peace lily is definitely a gorgeous plant for a bedroom! Even without the white flower bracts, just the leaves alone make for a beautiful foliage plant! And the best part?! It’s a low-light plant!

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #9: ZZ Plant – Zamioculcas zamiifolia

This semi-succulent has been making a comeback in houseplant popularity! With its zany, arching branches, this little plant is sure to make a statement wherever it is placed! But don’t worry, this little guy is also extremely low maintenance!

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #10: Heartleaf Philodendron – Philodendron cordatum

Heartleaf philodendron needs less light than its larger-leafed brothers. This, along with its cute, heart-shaped leaves makes it perfect for a bedside table or hanging basket! It is also available in several different varieties to match your personal style!

Low Light Plants for the Bedroom #11: Bird’s Nest Fern – Asplenium nidus

This awesome fern does great in low-light situations, but it prefers to be a little warmer than the Boston fern. It also sheds less than other ferns due to its sword-shaped leaves. But make sure to mist this fern daily to avoid brown leaf tips!

Well there you have it! I hope you have a fun time adding some greenery into your low light bedroom! Because every place could use a little more green!
