If you are a flower lover and you want to fill your apartment with all sorts of plants and flowers, then you should probably read the entire article, especially if the apartment is not entirely lit with natural light.

The following plants develop great in dark spaces without getting wilted.
Aglaonema, also known as the darkness plant, has green oval leaves that can reach up to 45 cm long. The plant produces small, white spic-shaped flowers, which transforms into small, red fruit, similar to berries. But beware! These are poisonous.
It develops well in shady, low-lit places, but they fit well in well-lit places, too. Though it prefers dark places, the plant needs warmth to grow harmoniously. So ensure a temperature of 68-77 degrees Fahrenheit.
Water the plant frequently during the summer and reduce the amount of water in the cold season. The plant loves wet soils, but the water doesn’t have to plow. Therefore, it’s advisable to put some water at frequent intervals so as not to overwater it.
Dracaena is a plant commonly found in apartments, precisely because it is easy to care for and resists in the dark rooms. It should be placed away from the window in a corner where the sun’s rays don’t reach. If possible, provide the plant with a temperature of 68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit and keep it away from temperature variations.
Although it is a tropical plant, excessive watering will cause leaf yellowing. Water the plant once every three to four days. Wait for the soil to dry completely before the next watering, and after 10 minutes remove the water surplus from the plate under the pot.
The spider plant or Chlorophytum comosum is an African plant. This plant has long, narrow leaves, with green and white stripes. It loves shady and dark rooms.
In summer, the ideal vegetation temperature is about 68 degrees Fahrenheit, while in winter the plant prefers lower temperatures up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The spider plant should be regularly watered during the summer, so that the soil is always wet. But don’t add too much water because its roots will rot. In winter, watering increases up to two to three times a month.
