Red Chinese Evergreen Houseplant

There are many types of plants that simply can't thrive indoors without supplemental lighting from grow lamps. But there are a few lower-light house plants that can thrive in medium- to low-light conditions indoors. Chinese evergreen is one such houseplant.

In particular, I'm fond of this variety, simply called 'Red'. Now, low-light doesn't mean NO light! If it's too dark in your space, then even these tough, easy houseplants won't thrive. A bright room without direct hot sunlight is best. Of course, you can always use spotlight LEDs or CFLs to provide supplemental light to individual houseplants if they aren't getting enough natural light.
