The present investigation entitled “Performance of indoor plants in pots after transplanting” was conducted during the year 2020-21 at Hi-tech nursery, College of Horticulture, Dapoli, Dist. Ratnagiri (M.S.). The treatments consisted of eight indoor foliage plants viz. Areca palm, Snake plant, Red edged dracaena, Dracaena yellow, Ficus benjamina, Philodendron, Dieffenbachia and Aralia. With eight treatments, three replications the experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design and ‘t’ test for shade effect. The study was conducted in pots to determine the effect of shade level on growth and development of these different indoor plants. In this study, we simulated low light intensity (50% sunlight) and evaluated the morphological and foliage colour related parameters of these eight indoor foliage species. Also, the study indicated that the shade nets provide the optimum growing environment for successful cultivation of foliage indoor plants. With respect to T1 was recorded significantly maximum plant height (100.66 cm) in shade condition. Furthermore, the highest leaf length (54.05 cm) and leaf breadth (13.55 cm) was found in T2 and T7 respectively. The average internodal length was observed (3.95 cm) in T6 and maximum leaf area was observed (173.08 cm²) in T7. In shade condition all the plant species fallen under the green group. Shade improve foliar colour and chlorophyll attentiveness by reducing light. Thus, considering the shade condition the average survival percentage was observed 100% in both T2 and T6, and also observed overall performance of various indoor plants superior under shade condition.
