7 high light houseplants

Bunny Ear Cactus

As with most cacti, bunny ear cactus care is not too much of a challenge – you just have to be patient.

(Opuntia Microdasys)

Venus Flytrap

A nice added bonus is that these plants are used to growing in very bright conditions, which means they love plenty of direct sunlight when kept indoors.

(Dionea Muscipula)


What many basil lovers don’t realize is that this plant needs a lot of sun, ideally at least 6 hours. This means it belongs on the sunniest windowsill you can offer.

(Ocimum Basilicum)

Ponytail Palm

Ponytail palms aren’t actually palms but a type of succulent that grows ponytail-like leaves from the top. It naturally occurs in arid parts of Mexico and stores water in its fat trunk.

(Beaucarnea Recurvata)

Sansevieria Cylindrica

They are one of the most adaptable houseplants and can survive high- and low light environments, although the former is definitely preferable.
