I want to increase my house plant collection and not kill the plants. My bathroom is dark with no windows. Any ideas on what I can do to increase my chances of getting enough light to sustain my plants?

    Shelves across the window or Hanging Baskets or Pots using Macrame?
  • Purchase grow lights. Sold at nurseries, hardware and home improvement stores and on line in almost any style you need.

    If in a room with no light ,you can use LED grow lights. They would provide light for the plants and LED would use low amount of Electricity. put on a timer so you don't have to mess with turning on and off.

    On your south windows put up sheers so the plants don't get burned by the sun. In the bathroom, a grow light and maybe change one of your plants week in the bathroom and next week in the window.
