Plants also act as natural air purifiers that cleanse the air from toxic chemicals, making the air more cleaner and breathable.
But, unfortunately everyone isn’t clued up about the benefits of having houseplants. Also, those living in low-light apartments assume that all plants need proper sunlight to survive which isn’t always the case. There are indoor plants that don’t need a lot of sunlight to survive.
And, that’s exactly what Twitter user, Angie tries to tell us, through this thread.
plants give so much life and healthy air quality to your bedroom and if you’ve been discouraged from getting plants because your room doesn’t get plenty of sunlight, here are some plants that will grow in a window-less room— angie 🦋🇬🇹 (@batonthemoon) September 11, 2020
🌿✨ a thread: ✨🌿
With this informative thread on indoor plants, Angie wants to encourage people to bring home some greens. Take a look.

All the plants that Angie has mentioned above can thrive in window-less rooms however, they’ll need some amount of artificial light (lamp light, ceiling light) to live.
all of these plants will thrive in your window-less bedroom but will require some artificial light (lamps or ceiling lights) to remain ON for most of the day… they should not be left in a super dark room for way too long or they’ll get lonely and die (except for bedtime ofc)✨— angie 🦋🇬🇹 (@batonthemoon) September 11, 2020
A lot of people agreed with Angie on the importance of having indoor plants. While some posted images of their ‘green’ friends others, liked how informative this thread was.

I am starting over with plants. I gave most of mine away when I moved. I also purchased a grow light that I use every other day with them since they aren't near direct sunlight. pic.twitter.com/qUvFHqODbG— Rochell Rushlow (@Couch_Pros) September 13, 2020
