    I remember on my first post for Helpful House plants that @Brooke was looking for low light plants. Today I just so happened to plant some as replacements for a few I lost.

    1. Pilea sprucceana "Silver Tree"
    • Fertilize every month
    • Temps should be 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit
    • High water usage, but best to keep too dry than too wet
    • Likes indirect low light
    • Has a fast growth rate and only gets to a max of 12 inches
    • Roots easily from cuttings
    • Not for human or animal consumption

    2. Fittonia argyroneura "Superba"
    • Easy to grow
    • Fertilize monthly
    • Temps should be 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Medium water usage
    • Likes indirect low light
    • Likes high humidity-perfect for terrariums or bottle gardens
    • Has fast growth rate
    • Propagates easily from leaf-tip cuttings
    • Not for human or animal consumption
    3. Syngonium podophyllum "Holly" aka
    Arrowhead Plant
    • Easy to grow
    • Fertilize every month
    • Temps should be 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Medium water usage-dry out between
    • Likes indirect low light
    • Prefers high humidity
    • Propagate through cuttings which easily root in water
    • As they grow they get into a climbing habit
    • Not for human or animal consumption
    4. Dracaena bravnii "Lucky Bamboo"
    • Easy to grow
    • Likes indirect light-too much light burns leaves
    • Does not need much fertilization
    • Can grow in water or soil-if in water do a complete water change every few weeks and try to use distilled or filtered water
    • Propagate through vegetative propagation
    • Popular Feng Shui plant
    • Actually not a member of bamboo family

    @Brooke i just wanted to make sure you could see the options and I included the botanical names so they may be easier for you to find.

    @Linda so glad I could help give you ideas too :D
