Indoor Plants for The Dark and Mysterious Personality Types

Adding indoor plants to your home is a fun way to decorate your own space and your own space often emanates your personality. For those with a dark and mysterious personality type, it might be challenging to consider houseplants fitting their interior style with the misconception that every plant needs direct sun light, or most are a boring green color to these interesting and unique individuals.

Indoor plants come in all shapes, sizes and colors and there are a select few that a dark individual can reap the air purifying benefits from while bringing nature indoors to satisfy their darker lifestyle.

Here are the perfect houseplants to bring out your dark side:

Raven ZZ plant

One of the darkest poets who ever lived, Edgar Allen Poe, might have enjoyed this Raven more than the one tapping at his chamber door.

This Raven thrives in low light, is drought tolerant and displays spectacular dark purplish-black foliage that starts out green and gets darker with age.

Black Velvet Elephant Ear

A plant worth the company to those black velvet ladies who enjoy a space for a whiskey drink or two.

This Black Velvet beauty can live in part shade and is relatively low maintenance provided additional humidity is given for those striking dark leaves.

Black Prince Echeveria

Edward of Woodstock, known to history as the ‘Black Prince’, was the eldest son of King Edward III of England remembered for his brutality and the massacres he ordered while donning his black armor.

This ‘Black Prince’ succulent is not nearly as dramatic but offers quite the dramatic display of nearly black rosettes.
