The demands of indoor plants are as varied as the plants themselves. Their need for water, light and nutrients varies greatly depending on the plant species and also the right location - whether in the bright, dry south window or in the darker, damp bathroom - a key factor in that the houseplant feels good. In addition to sun-hungry plants, there are also those that grow well in dark corners.
In general, one should always pay attention to the location information of the plant suppliers - from "sunny" to "partially shaded" to "shady". Shady locations can be north-facing windows, east-facing windows, hallways, or even corners facing away from the south-facing interior. An important indication of the shading ability of a houseplant is the texture of the leaves: If they are relatively large and rather thin, the plants are usually good for less light places in the house. They also grow in the wild mostly in the undergrowth of forests, where they capture the scanty residual light with their large leaves. These so-called green plants bloom rather inconspicuous and are also often undemanding and easier to care for than conspicuous flowering houseplants - but of course there are some exceptions.
In the following picture gallery we introduce you to eleven robust houseplants, with which you can greener darker rooms.

Indoor plants for dark corners
The shoemaker palm (aspidistra elatior) grows even in the darkest corners. The very robust and easy-care lily plant with its large, rich green leaves rarely needs to be cast and is insensitive to dust, drafts and low humidity. In winter, the shoemaker palm should not be below ten degrees Celsius
The single leaf (Spathiphyllum hybrid) does not tolerate direct sun and can be well in the semi-shade, especially during flowering. Preference year-round 18 to
25 degrees Celsius, in winter it should not be cooler than 16 degrees Celsius. The substrate should always be slightly damp. A drainage layer facilitates the drainage. During the resting phase in winter (October to January) pour more sparingly
The bow hemp (Sansevieria trifasciata) with its stiff, upright leaves is very robust and thrives in less than optimal conditions. The ideal temperature is 21 to 24 degrees Celsius. In winter, the temperature should be slightly lower, about 13 to 16 degrees Celsius. Pour sparingly, because Sansevieri likes dry rather than too wet
The ivy (Hedera helix) is one of the most well-known leaf ornamental and climbing plants with hundreds of varieties. The green-leafed breeds like it half shady to shady, variegated varieties need a little more light. Keep plants at 18 to 20 degrees Celsius and around 10 degrees from October to February. The darker the location, the more moderately cast
The dragon tree (Dracaena) is not a tree in the true sense: it makes no tree-typical thickness growth, but has a palm-like, woody trunk. The plants come out in the room with relatively little light. The least light claims has the monochrome green Canarian dragon tree. Water only moderately
The ivy aralf (x Fatshedera) is a cross of the Zimmeraralie (Fatsia) with Hedera, the ivy. She likes it half shady and definitely not too bright
The Zimmeraralie (Fatsia japonica) is the perfect plant for stairwells or vestibules, as it likes shady and especially in summer cool locations
The maidenhair fern (Adiantum raddianum) with its frond-like pinnate leaves likes it half shady to shady by 22 degrees Celsius with 60 percent humidity. Therefore, it is also good for the bathroom. You should keep it evenly with lime-poor water while avoiding waterlogging
The Kentia palm (Howea forsteriana) does not like the direct sun and has a moderate amount of water. Therefore, you should not water them too much and let the soil dry before the next watering. It is considered one of the most robust palm species, ensures a good indoor climate and its leaves swallow noise
These begonia (Begonia) decorate primarily by their foliage. Many species and varieties are on the market. For example, the tiger begonia (Begonia boweri), which tolerates a partially shaded to shady place well. However, it requires warmer temperatures at 20 degrees Celsius
From the Schamblume (Aeschynanthus speciosus) are known about eight kinds. It is a beautiful plant with its tubular, red flower tufts. Especially in summer she likes it more shady. It should be sprayed with lukewarm water. It should be kept moist, but avoid waterlogging and dryness
