  • Indoor Plants that Enjoy Darkness..........

    I did a quick google search and got a list of indoor plants that like low light but am curious if any of you have first hand experience in this and what you would recommend for a bedroom with low natural light. I'm seeking something that is preferably a vining plant.

  • Wrong person to ask here. When had plant outside, brought inside cause it was getting cold. Next morning calling for husband because they were three little dead baby mice on carpet. They had made plant their home. I don't think have had a plant indoors since! And felt terrible because must have separated them from mother.

    Many years ago someone gave us a rubber plant that worked well in dark room but it's not a vining plant. Spider plants are cool vining plants but they need to be next to a window (indirect light).


    • I feel that I kill pretty much every plant, except this one vining plant I've had for years in my kitchen. Apparently, it gets exactly what it needs there. But doesn't thrive in my bedroom.

      I had a rubber plant. I loved it. It lived wonderfully for a couple years and then slowly turned black and died. I am the black widow of plants!

      The mouse story is funny (and sad too! ) I can see why you'd be hesitant after that. lol.

      • I have never had luck with house plants. I kill everything rather quickly. Fur, fins or feathers for me...

        I was quite pleased with my urban garden last summer for this reason. I had some trouble growing the mint, and cilantro but otherwise the plants were happy with me. it was satisfying not to have to watch them slowly whither away as my plants typically do.

        good luck. let me know what you learn


        • Cilantro is tough to grow, depending on the climate. I usually have great luck with mint. Matter of fact, it comes back even in places I don't want it to. It's kind of fun running over a patch when mowing.

          • I've been told cilantro is hard here. And mint, I decided was due to poor drainage in that pot. I will drill more holes this spring.
