Contrary to popular belief, there are Succulents that Don’t Need Sunlight to thrive and are a great choice to keep in dimly lit rooms!
When we talk about Succulents That Don’t Need Sunlight, it doesn’t mean that these plants can survive in complete darkness. It implies that these do well in less light than other succulents that need constant bright sun to thrive. This attribute makes them a star addition indoors to places with indirect light all day.
Do not miss these tall low light indoor plants
Succulents That Don’t Need Sunlight
1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria)
2. ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia)
If you’re looking for a low-maintenance succulent that doesn’t mind being in a low-lit room, then you must grow the ZZ plant. Its glossy leaves maintain their charm no matter how little or more light they get.
The plant gets its name because it resembles a stomach, which is called ‘gaster’ in Latin. Its thick, waxy leaves have unique patterns and stay healthy in dimly lit conditions.
5. Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera)
6. Ponytail Palm (Beaucarnea recurvata)
While not a true palm, its bulbous trunk makes it resemble one for sure! Its delicate and cascading leaves can add a tropical feel to any room.
7. Aloe Vera
Though it won’t mind being in the shade, you need to keep it in sunlight occasionally to stop it from etiolation (stretching toward the light source), which can make it leggy.
Euphorbia Milii (Crown of Thorns), Euphorbia Trigona (African Milk Tree), and Euphorbia tithymaloides are star low light performers! However, like aloe vera, they do need a bit of direct sun exposure now and then.
