Younger Daughter asked me for recommendations for a plant on a hanging macrame sort of device, in a rather dim corner of a room. I told her ferns were happy with not much light. Anyone got any further suggestions?

I don't have a great deal of knowledge on this front, Columba, but I do have a few plants that are fairly happy in shade.

Ferns for sure - my Boston Ferns are thriving.
Aspidistra and Calathea - though they are not hanging basket types
I have a Ceropegia woodii (called Lady Felicity Lovebundle) which I adore and which is thriving and would look lovely in a hanging basket



If it helps, I buy my plants on a website called Patch Plants. I'm not suggesting your daughter buys from them if she isn't London based but you can filter on their website by things like "loves shade"

Thanks, Bint. I've let her know. She's in Bristol rather than London.

So… houseplants, eh? They’re the pet it’s okay to forget to feed (sometimes). And they don’t...
