    We have a hallway that doesn’t have any external walls and as such doesn’t get a lot of natural light. We’re using that as an excuse as to why we can’t keep any plants alive in it 🙂

    Does anyone have any large’ksh plant recommendations that thrive in such conditions as our next port of call is looking at artificial greenery?

    If not, can anyone recommend anywhere to buy any decent quality artificial plants?

    Thanks

    Jamaican Woodbine (Allgwanbeirie marleyii)

    Grows best in lofts with no windows.

    TK Maxx / Homesense for a vast array of artificial stuff at reasonable prices. And this also means there is the very real possibility of there being Raspberry Liquorice on sale at the tills too.

    Aspidistra (gronda gronda) and Spathyphyllum will both grow in some pretty dark places

    See if you have a branch of ‘Country Baskets’ near you (aka ****y Bastards) – they are florist wholesalers and I buy a lot of artificial greenery from them for film sets and the like. Cheap, a bit more naturalistic than Ikea and a lot of choice.

    If you want something living that doesn’t need sunlight  how about growing Oyster Mushrooms in books

    a Rose of Jerrico is pretty much un-killable too – the Tardigrade or Homeybadger of he plant world. I’ve got a few that t get left in the cupboard where the pipework for out heating system comes into the house (we’re on a district system) – that cupboard is about 45deg inside all year round – we bring them out every few years and give them a water and watch them do their weird fractal shit and then put them away again for a few years. They don’t even care about soil – we just sit them in a puddle of water on a plate

    Bloom are very good, but rather expensive.

    Never heard of a Rose of Jericho! It looks like my Leylandii trimmings just before they go into my incinerator.

    very much like that- but with added demonic possession
