Low-light Tropical Living Art

A mix of low-light tropical plants can be grown in areas where artificial light will keep them growing green. In nature these plants are found on the forest floor where they thrive in minimal lighting conditions. A variety of philodendrons including pothos, Exotically patterned manterra, Chinese evergreen, spath, and a rugged bromeliad happily grow in this Floraframe Recirc24. This pivotal centerpiece for this traditional home is powered by a single 50 watt spot light from above. A pump and timer move water through the system daily. The 5 gallon tank is topped off every couple weeks and small amounts of organic plant food is added occasionally.
