Hi, does anyone have suggestions for plants with interesting color foliage that do well in low light? Thanks!February 1, 2019 at 7:53 PM #919
Chinese evergreen/Red Siam. Caladium, Calathea, Prayer plantFebruary 2, 2019 at 1:40 PM #925
I strongly agree with Amy regarding Chinese Evergeens aka Aglaonemas. They have very nice colors on large leaves, the red is really spectacular although it requires a bit more light than the others. Also, syngoniums come in a range of green colors, as well as cream, pink, and maroons. Also, sanseverias have very interesting color foliage and do well in low light. The have leaves with yellow and cream varigation and stripes. I hope this is helpful.February 2, 2019 at 1:45 PM #926
I forgot to mention the family of diffenbachias. They have large variegated leaves and do well in low light. They do need a bit of humidity but otherwise are hardy plants.February 2, 2019 at 3:12 PM #929

Yes I forgot about syngoniums. Although some do require a higher level of light ie: Pink AllusionFebruary 3, 2019 at 12:23 PM #932
How could I forget the marginata? I had a few of them that I got from Ikea awhile ago. They stayed behind when I moved but I do miss them. The leaves had bright red markings and they were so hardy, even though they were stuck in a dark corner. That is definitely a great recommendation!February 3, 2019 at 1:19 PM #933AnonymousInactive
Oh wow, thanks! I wasn’t expecting so many recommendations, I’ll have to look them all up and let you know what I end up getting 🙂
