Low Light Plants for Windowless Rooms

Yes, there are indoor plants that will grow in rooms that have no windows. In this video I transform a small, dark space into an inviting, lush reading area using plants that will thrive under artificial lighting.

If you want to skip right to the plant list in this video go to time code 7:46!


Chinese Evergreen
Peace Lilies
Snake Plants
ZZ Plant
Creeping Figs

If you are a glutton for design punishment then start from the beginning.

Disclaimer: All indoor plants want natural light in general, but this handful of plants can make your office or windowless space feel a bit like the great outdoors.

    Are there any unusual plants not your run of the mill spider plants etc that can be in moderate to low lite?

  5. bablatoss on March 9, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    I don’t like putting plants in a room with no windows and artificial light.

  6. michelleized on March 9, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    This made me happy IDK why! Can you do more of these styling videos?

  7. Ink & Pearls on March 9, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    Ummmm yes, that table moved by itself. I rewatched it about 10 times. 😱

  8. Dana Schneider on March 9, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    This is an awesome video… I have a very dark home with a couple good windows. Needed to know what plants to place in the periphery of the windows…cuz I can’t stop with the plants 🪴…. Thank you 🙏🏼

  9. Anthony Giarrusso on March 9, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    that table certainly did move on its own i truly believe your home may be haunted. that seemed very paranormal.

  10. Danyell Skinner on March 9, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    What variety of philodendron is that big burgandy plant next to the chair?

  11. Baltimore School of Dance on March 9, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    LOVE this! Thank you!

  12. Renee Prince on March 9, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    This is just what I was looking for. My office just moved to the lower level of the building so no windows. I grouped the usual low light mid sized office plants into the conference room with plant lights but my office is so sad without my plant family (they live in my house now)😊. I’m heading out today with my list from your video. Thanks Amanda 😁🌿🪴

  13. William S on March 9, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    This was fun. I ended up here at 2am because. Why sleep? Lol

  14. cutecactuspot on March 9, 2021 at 11:03 pm

  15. Banana Cake on March 9, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    The table did move by itself. Wow . . Do these things happen much in your home?
    I keep watching it move. It moves like a planchet on a ouija board! I hope it’s a friendly one!

    I think the song can goes to Spotify.

    In my book that’s called "Horror vacui."

  18. Slíocach Ní'Oishin on March 9, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    I love your videos!

  19. elrevah on March 9, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Hello, and thank you for this nice video! As I understood that this room has no windows I’m just missing the information about the light you used for this room? I mean, it can’t be normal light/bulb but special ones for plant, right?

  20. Muhammad Jawad on March 9, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Kindly do video for indoor plant underground 30ft without windows and full of computer envirnmnet office. Recommend some good indoor airpurifying plants

  21. Gill W on March 9, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    That was a great one on low light plants 🪴 thank you 😊

  22. Bekah Pillow on March 9, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Ahh! I literally can’t get enough of your videos. I watch them repeatedly. For real though. If I find myself struggling with a plant, I find myself thinking, "I bet planterina has a video to help me with this."

    It is wintertime. I have several plants not doing their best. Not terrible. Just. Like. Not doing much. Although I have been noticing new leaves. They just don’t necessarily always look the greatest. I just got a red/blue led light. Is this effective for most plants? Which light color is better?

  23. Dina Staggs on March 9, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you for making this video.

  24. Delfina Cabagui on March 9, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Wow.! Impressive.!
    Hello there..it’s me watching from Phillipines 👋🍀

  26. Robert Johnson on March 9, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Very useful info, thanks

  29. Jennifer Day on March 9, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    You are great! Like the sister I always wish I had 🙂

  30. JAK S on March 9, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    What’s the name of the first huge plant you brought in and mentioned its expensive?

  31. Lek Sukijo Mbolang on March 9, 2021 at 11:21 pm


  32. SoFlaCap on March 9, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Randomly found your videos and am obsessed! I’ve gotten some great tips recently that have made my plant babies so much happier

  33. Dandy Berry on March 9, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    I literally watch a video of yours every morning 😅😂 You’re the best, girl! 🤗

  34. Adel Cruz on March 9, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I like how you designed this room.

  35. Rosalinda Anderson on March 9, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Love it

  36. Karliah on March 9, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    She’s like "I found this and that in my house" and I’m sitting here like _haha yes_ (cries in tiny 2 room apartment).

  37. Pawsitive Leader on March 9, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Could you tell me what kind of Philodendron that large plant is near the chair?

  38. Aeunax123 on March 9, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Love this channel! So informative!

  39. Luz Ortiz on March 9, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    I love this

  40. Amy Baker on March 9, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    You honestly make me laugh so so much, it’s nice to know I’m not the only one that struggles to find places for my plants.
    I was actually hoping to launch my own houseplant business, but first of all I don’t want to necessarily "copy" anyone else, although that’s going to be difficult. I learn a lot from your videos, you’re like my plant mom 😁❤️ but I NEEEED more plants and I NEEEED more room to put them. I’m about half way to a jungle aesthetic. If you have the time either idk maybe message me or make a video on how you started up? How you supply your plants and how you post/ship them. Cause I haven’t a clue! (I’ll be researching in the meantime)

  41. Famous Amos on March 9, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    New fan here 🤚🏻 you are so funny and real!! I love your videos. 😀

  42. Danielle Paulson on March 9, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    When you say artificial lights do you mean plant lights or regular lightbulbs? 😮

  43. Jena Cole on March 9, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Eee it moved by itself!

  44. Kathy W on March 9, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Learned a lot. You are an expert and I wish I could have you to guide me how to arrange my plants

  45. Amy M on March 9, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    I love listening to you and watching you decorate. I am in search of more side tables to use to raise plants up off the floor, anyway, I wanted to wish you a very happy and merry Christmas and wonderful New year!

  46. Jennifer Daniels on March 9, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Hi. So I saw that table move too. 👻

  47. Elena Budău on March 9, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    :)) "put a plant on it, it’ll look better" :)) that’s like me with high heels, put high heels, it’ll look better :))

  48. Katarína Šebíková on March 9, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Very inšpiratívne, thanksssss

  49. Suba Bannister on March 9, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Thank you for this list!

  50. Tara Weaver on March 9, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    I just shared this video with a friend, I said, "This is a good video to start with bc it really shows off her cool personality. She’s got loads of very informative videos. I end almost every day with at least one or two of her videos, then I dream about plants!" And I meant every word!
    My question is though, do any of these plants do well in cooler temps? I have a virtual fitness studio (in the basement of course) that I want to be decked out with plants, if poss. But I live in Maine, so the basement is 64-69 degrees in the winter/fall.
    Also, what do you use to light your videos? The lighting always looks amazing and natural!
    Thank you for all your hard work educating us fellow plant lovers!
