Plant slaying is real. Good people kill plants!
So if your thumb is more black than green considering low-light plants for your space is the right move.
Low-light plants tend to be more hassle-free than other varieties. A big bonus is that they can be enjoyed in a windowless room, that shady corner, or even a bathroom with only a tiny window.
No need to worry about the plant getting enough direct sun, plants that were made for the shade. Non-fussy plants for the busy plant parent.

Why the quality and selection of plants at PlantVine is stupendous…
PlantVine. Swoonworthy selection. What else can I say?
Choose from various categories including indoor plants, exotics, edibles, rare and collectible plants, pet-friendly plants, low-light plants, ground covers, and my personal favorite…wildlife attractors.
Nothing better than plants that draw in our wonderful pollinators!
Whatever green piece of paradise you seek, PlantVine has the answer. Be sure to check out PlaneVine’s bestsellers because those choices are always slam-dunk winners.
Think Chinese money plant, white bird of paradise, fiddle leaf fig, Monstera adansonii, Monstera deliciosa, Philodendron Ginny. All fabulous plants that I own and that if you purchase from PlantVine you would be equally thrilled with. Check them out!
But it was the quality of PlantVine that won my loyalty. So often, when you order plants online, they are disappointing. What you get does not reflect the stunning photo you see online.
The plant barely resembles the picture seen on the website. But this was not the case with PlantVine as all the plants met or exceeded my expectations.
Big, bold, and beautiful, I received dreamy plants that I will enjoy for many years to come, delivered right to my front porch.
What’s so fabulous about low-light plants?
Low-light plants never cease to amaze.
Just to be clear- low-light doesn’t mean no light. But that doesn’t mean a room must have a window in order for a low-light plant to survive.
Some ambient artificial light will suffice, even via incandescent bulbs, fluorescent lights, or LED lights. Great news for any cubicle dweller who desires a plant friend!
If you wish, purchasing a grow light for your plant might calm your nerves but isn’t strictly necessary.
Low-light does mean that you don’t have to panic about having direct sunlight for 6 or more hours a day. Some light will be adequate.
But my favorite bit about low-light plants is that they tend to be overall lower-maintenance plants in general. In other words~ you have to work pretty hard to kill them.
So they tend to not get annoyed if you overwater or underwater them.
Besides, all the “sun spots” have already been taken in my home. I simply don’t have any more locations for plants that demand 6+ hours of sun a day. And yet…I still want more plants.
By adding low-light plants to my collection, I can still increase the greenery in my home!
New to the plant scene?
No houseplants? That’s okay! We all start somewhere. The point is to start collecting now! Nothing creates ambiance in your home quite like a plant. Art that is alive.
One of my favorite offers from PlantVine is their build-your-own-bundle in which you get 4 plants for $44.
At $11 for each plant, that’s a steal. Especially when considering the quality of the plant you will receive. And it gets better since there are 20 plants to choose from.
Plants are the medium size, ideal, not too big and not too small.
Not only are the plants covered by PlantVine’s 45-day guarantee, but they will even send you a picture of your plants before they ship. That’s unheard of!
It certainly builds my confidence that I will receive a quality plant!
For plant first-timers, you can’t go wrong with a pothos. A few of my pothos and I go back over ten years. Impossible to kill. For a new plant collector newbie, you can’t go wrong with a pothos.
A few of my pothos and I go back over ten years. Impossible to kill.
And as a mom of four, I should know that choosing favorites is wrong, but I’m partial to the Philodendron Brasil.
Equally intriguing are the Marble Peperomia and the Calathea Freddie. But you select what plants you like best and work in your space!
How PlantVine Plants will become “like family”
The plants that PlantVine offers are so unique they kind of resemble the family. Some are tall, some are short, some spikey, and some are just downright silly!
Various hues of green with all sorts of unique textures. A few even flower!
Indoor or outdoor plants that will appeal to your visionary senses and your specific garden zone and/or home environment.
You buy what you love!
And you choose what works for your space. Size is everything! If you have room for a humongous plant then go for it. But if you are seeking more of a tabletop type of plant, PlantVine will have the perfect one.
PlantVine is always re-inventing itself with new additions as they add to its plant list. So be sure to check out their new additions and plant re-stocks if your favorite plant has sold out! The milkweed stole my heart!
Plants give you joy and make your world a little greener for many years. I’ve had plants that have been with me for 10 years or more making them truly family.
Nothing more exciting than learning about a new plant and watching it evolve, grow, and even flower if possible! Plants make your dwelling feel calm and look fabulous!
Plant shock, shipping, and a 45-day guarantee…
Plant shock is a real threat to plants. It’s a fact when plants are shipped across the country, the potential for plants to suffer is an issue.
But these plants were shipped from across the country to New York and arrived in pristine condition. I dealt with minimal plant shock. I’ve never actually had this happen before so I was very pleased!
Part of the explanation is that PlantVine is smart about when they ship. If it’s too cold in your climate, they will wait till temps go up before they attempt to send you your plants. I appreciate this because no one wants to call about plants arriving dead.
Shipping is free for over $125 as well! And you know how it is: you won’t be able to order just one plant anyhow, not when you see the lovely selection PlantVine offers.
There’s also a 45-day guarantee which I deeply respect. There are a few “rules” involved. But overall, if the plant dies, you will get a replacement.
An example of a “rule” is that if you re-pot in under 7 days after arrival, then the replacement is voided. This is because again, plant shock is real and you have to give the plant time to recover. Perfectly reasonable!
PlantVine is a fabulous place to acquire plants, from the newbie to the seasoned plant collector: they will have a plant you want.
Plants are an art form and especially in winter, make your living quarters warmer, brighter and happier.
It’s a joy to learn about new plants and watch them change over time.
Truly, I love my stunning low light collection from PlantVine and know you will be equally thrilled if you choose to order plants from them.
And we are all buying gifts year-round. Why not give that “special someone” a gift that will will thrill them. Mother’s Day?
How about the Butterfly Garden Box? No shame in buying it for yourself either. You’ve earned it!
Until then, peruse their website to see all PlantVine can offer you. So much fun reading about new plants! Happy plant shopping!
