Posted:  14 Jan 2016 22:05  
I have a couple of interior planter beds that we are looking to put ground cover on that doesn't need a ton of light. Any suggestions of variety? The client keeps mentioning sedum but I don't see that doing too well indoor.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm a fan of moss. It looks great. I believe you can get live or preserved varieties. Inhabitat did an awesome post on moss walls featuring Joe Zazzera of Plant Solutions.

Depends on the light available.  You can use the humble Pothos or Philodendron to achieve a fast-growing groundcover, but maintaining it will be problematical if the bed is very deep (wide), because you can't walk on it.  Same goes for creeping fig, which gives a finer texture but can be a maintenance headache because of its millions of tiny leaves that will turn yellow when they age.  I'd opt for areas (swathes) of greenery planted in islands among a non-living topdressing like ProToast hardwood chips.
