    Plants that like shade

    Hey everyone,

    I want to replace my annoying christmas cactus that broke into pieces and my dying amaryllis with some indoor plants, that like shade, any suggestions?

    Drosera Adelae? Maybe some Mexican Pinguicula?

    Hmm I was going towards normal non-carnivorous plants the pots are large. Thanks for responding.

    The lowest light CP of which I'm aware is D. schizandra. Cool temps, high humidity, low light & LFS for media = happy plant. As for non-cp, there are lots & I'm sure others will chime in with suggestions.
    All the best,

    How about some ferns? Pathos? Dragon Fruit? Begonia? Schefflera? Split Leaf philodendron? Aloes? Norfork Island Pine? Dracenia?

    Paphiopedilum are low light for the most part. They are pretty easy to grow too. I posted a couple that I have blooming now in this thread.

    Sansevaria (SP??) known as snake plant among other things will grow in almost utter darkness

    I have some kind of purple shamrock-lookin thing that takes low light as well but have no clue what it's called, it's nice and showy tho, huge deep purple leaves that fold up at night
