Well, at Rushfields we made a list of houseplants that like shades. These plants don't need direct sunlight to grow, they maintain by water and a little love from the owner. Sounds great right?

Easy care for indoor shade houseplants

How to take care of your indoor shade houseplants? Well, despite they can tolerate low sunlight, you have to make sure that they will get a bit of sunlight. They don't need to be put in the window-sill, but they definitely don't want to be placed in the basement. So, you have to find the houseplants a place that is half-shaded and you shouldn't forget to look out for them. Ask our staff for the precise amount of water they need a week. But keep in mind that shade-loving houseplants don't like wet feet. Make sure you keep the soil moist but beware of giving too much water. Get rid of the brown leaves and re-pot your houseplant when the growth stops and they need a bigger pot.
