5 Easy-going Plants that Can Handle Some Shade

Are you looking to liven up a shady spot in your home? Check out these 5 low-maintenance plants that don't need a lot of sun to thrive!


Originally from the Philippines, certain Hoya have smooth and waxy leaves, while others are soft and fuzzy like velvet. They are known for their adaptability and their impressive bunches of star-shaped flowers. Your Hoya will be happy if it is snug in a small pot, which makes it a real eye-catcher! 


Kalanchoe Tomentosa

The white fuzzy leaves of this succulent are adapted to protect it from the hot Madagascar sun, so it will appreciate a bit of shade. Unlike your tropical plants, it will grow the most in winter, transforming into a beautiful statuesque plant.

Zig Zag 

The Zig Zag cactus, unlike most cacti, doesn't appreciate direct sunlight. It will be quite happy at a distance from the window. This plant is perfect for a hanging basket, it's zig zag shaped stems spilling over the edge of the pot!


Originally from Africa, Sansevieria can tolerate the shady corners of your home (as well as a sporadic watering schedule). We have many varieties, certain reaching heights of up to 1m! If you're looking for an easy, low-maintenance plant, this is the one for you. 


Very resistant to many different light conditions, Haworthia are cute, compact plants. They will produce small buds, filling their pot with many small succulents. Haworthia aren't just cute, they are also very low maintenance! Wait until the soil is completely dry before watering and place it in the spot of your choice.
