House Plants To Grow In The Winter

Published on Nov 23, 2022


Depending on your ability to control the climate of your home, not much changes from summer to winter indoors. While temperature can be controlled year-round, the amount of sunlight your home receives depends on the time of the year and the position of the sun. Some plants will struggle in the winter while others will thrive. Here is a list of indoor plants that do best in low light and winter conditions: 

Jade Plant - Crassula

The Jade plant can tolerate both warm and colder conditions. This means that if you leave home for a while and the heat is off, the plant will do just fine. It also does well in low-light conditions which is great for the limited amount of sunlight during the winter months. If you care for the plan properly, it’ll last through the spring and the summer and be ready for you again next winter. 


Succulents can survive almost anything. They can handle most claimants and poor caretakers. They take some serious effort to kill and as long as you give them some direct sunlight for at least four hours a day and don’t overwater them, they should do just fine throughout the winter. 


Pothos makes the list of sturdy plants best suited for negligent owners and harsh winters. They’re great houseplants for novices which is why they are so common in households. They can handle the chill from being placed in front of windows and they don’t need much light in order to thrive during the winter. 

Phalaenopsis Orchid

The orchid is another popular houseplant both year-round and especially in the winter. It doesn’t require too much effort to maintain and does really well in the colder weather. 


This is a great houseplant that does well in almost all conditions. It can handle direct sunlight just as well as it handles shade. You won’t need to move them depending on where the light comes into your home or set them outside at any point. As long as your home is well insulated it can handle the fluctuations in heat depending on when your heater is used. As long as they don’t freeze and you don’t overwater them, they should survive the winter easily.
