Our little studio faces east, so all we get is the morning sun. It’s a challenge to find plants that will do well with just that amount of light. You might have a challenging spot too, so here’s some things we have found that survive and thrive.
Rhipsalis / Mistletoe Cactus
These come in so many varieties. We have found them to be very hardy and tolerant to be inside with filtered light. You can see nice pictures of many other varieties here at The Succulent Garden.
These also come in lots of different kinds, you will find they often have ‘collector’s tags’ if you are buying from the local nursery. They can handle fairly low light, but to flower they will need more light.
Jade Plant / Money Plant / Crassula
Although some crassula need more sunlight, there are a number of them that we have grown indoors with no problems, including crassula ovata (plantsonline has a good description of it), crassula gollum, and crassula hobbit (not to be confused with crassula gandalf. Just kidding. No, actually not kidding, it does exist…).
I’m not sure of other sedums, but this one is so wonderful, we’ve never had any trouble with it. It gets enough light from the window. A customer told me they even have it growing in their bathroom with no issues, and it’s even getting very long and is happy.
Chain of Hearts
Again, does well in the window. The main thing is like with the Zanzibar Gem, to make sure you don’t over-water it or it will rot the rhizomes (small potato-like things under the ground which the roots come from).
There’s other things too of course, but these our our top picks for the moment.
