Question: 10-5201
Can you recommend a house plant that will do well in an area without windows? Michelle, West Jordan, UT

Mort's Answer:
Chinese evergreen or Aglaonema simplex can grow in the darkest of corners. Philodendron, ferns, Fatshedera lizei and ficus will adapt well to low light. Spathiphyllum patini and the smaller S. floribundum have a white flower and will do well in low light. Some ficus that have been grown in high light intensity will drop their leaves in low light before recovery. It is often difficult to ascertain the growing situation for floor plants because they are usually imported from Florida. English ivy , pathos and philodendron are vines that will also do well in shady places.
