As everyone knows, houseplants are an easy way to bring a bit of nature indoors — especially if you have a sunny kitchen corner or a wall of windows in the dining room. But what happens when you want to add some live greenery to a room that lacks adequate natural light, such as a TV room? The trick is choosing the right plant for your space. Here are three of the best plants for your TV Room Cabinetry, home office, and other low-light areas in the home.
This low-maintenance plant is about as easy as it gets, which makes it a popular choice for the home. While it likes bright, indirect light, it is also undemanding, and can grow with very little light or water. Pothos is an attractive sight against all wood cabinetry in the TV Room, with trailing, heart-shaped leaves in variegated shades of green, white and yellow. When potting, use well-draining soil and trim the vines when they grow too long and tangled.
This bushy, shade-loving house plant thrives in low to moderate light, and has both upright and trailing varieties that grow to the size of your container. Colors range from deep green to gold and purple. Like pothos, philodendron would look lovely on a high, open shelf in your TV Room Cabinetry. With proper care, philodendron is extremely hardy. When potted, keep the soil moist, and fertilize once a month in the spring and summer.
This tropical plant is extremely tolerant and requires little care. It can survive with minimal light, is drought-resistant, and does not require pruning. The snake plant has shiny, pointed leaves that stand upright, and there are several varieties to choose from. For shallow all wood cabinetry shelves, Sansevieria ‘Golden Hahnii,’ has compact leaves in variegated shades of green. If you want to fill an empty corner, opt for Sansevieria trifasciata, also known as ‘Mother-in-Law’s tongue,’ which has slender leaves that can grow upwards of 4 feet tall.
As an added bonus, these three plants are proven to help clean the air of toxic chemicals, according to the NASA Clean Air Study. Remember, these and other houseplants can be toxic, so be sure to keep them out of reach of pets and small children.
