Not everyone has the luxury of sunlight blessing their home, especially in this era 🙁
If you are one of those, does that mean you cannot enjoy the blooms of indoor flowering plants?

But, before we move on, I want to clear one thing that every plant requires some amount of sunlight; however low light conditions they can handle, each of them would require a minimal amount of sunlight.
So, don’t keep them devoid of sunlight, find a spot that receives filtered sunlight.
Let’s dive right in.
