Plants for Artificial Light Indoors


Would like a list of plants that will do well under artificial light


Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners.  Your question is an interesting one to answer because it depends on what kind of artificial light you are considering and also what kind of natural light you receive.

There is a wide range of artificial lighting set ups, with variety of light spectrum and intensity.

I have attached a link to an article on how to choose artificial lights: click here.

Here is a brief list of house plants which have low light to medium requirements;

  • Peace lily
  • ZZ plant
  • Anthurium
  • Dieffenbachia
  • Madagascar Dragon Tree
  • Spider Plants
  • Bromeliads
  • Philodendrons
  • Snake PLant

For house plants which  have medium level of lighting requirements see link below;

Please also do some research on other environmental requirements of plants such as humidity, air flow, soil type, pest tolerance, bloom cycles, etc.

Enjoy your house plants !
