Shorter days and less direct sunlight mean that some of your houseplants might struggle through the fall and winter, but these hearty plants will survive the cooler seasons and give your home a pop of life on the chilliest winter days.
1) Snake Plant
Snake plants are the perfect indoor plant for fall and winter because they seem to thrive when neglected. They require very little water and requires a moderate amount of light to survive. They grow vertically giving them an impressive sculptural look, and they work as a natural air purifier which is great when you’re spending more time at home.
In the dead of winter when there’s very little color outside, this tropical houseplant is sure to cheer you up. Bromeliad grows bright green, orange, pink, yellow, and red foliage but despite the sunny colors requires little direct light. It also doesn’t need frequent watering.
3) Zebra Plant
This tropical plant has bright dramatic yellow, white, and green striped leaves so it will add a much needed pop of color to your home through fall and winter. It also thrives in lower light humid spaces like the bathroom.
