I bought this plant just a few days ago. Its tag said it is a low light plant. The info that I have found for this plant on the net says it likes high to medium light. Im sure it would do better in a higher light room, but im wondering if it will do well in a low light room, If any one has experience with this plant please let me know what you think. It's a very cute plant and I want it to live. Thank you!

Hi Whataday,
I have this plant and it CAN exist for a while in a low light setting but it will not thrive. It will just sit there and sulk. Be sure if you do have it in low light, not to overwater. Hope this helps.

Hi Littlebearsmom, thank you for replying.
That's what I was afraid of.. I don't want it to just barely hang in there. I want it to do well, so I think I'll just find a better spot for it. It annoys me that it was sold with a low light tag on it. Is yours in high or medium light?

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
