Hi. Firstly, I'm not sure that I have the right forum here, if not
I am a Caretaker with a locked cupboard for most of the day....no
daylight. It can have a musty smell so I would like to put a fragrant
plant in there. Trouble is as I said, its dark pretty much most of the
time. Is there a plant out there that I could use? Thanks.
Instead of a plant -- which surely will not thrive in the dark -- try a
pomander or spice sachet. A Google search on either should result in
many "hits". For pomander, try

sachet, try <http://www.herbcompanion.com/health/spice-sachet-blend.aspx .

No plant will grow in the dark. Could you leave it under a light at least 8
hours a day? If so there are some that will grow in low light although this
excludes many that smell sweet from flowers as (generally) flowers take more
light than leaves.

But there are some which will have a jolly good try. I have had
bindweed growing in the underfloor, and managing to squeeze between the
tongue-and-groove floorboard gaps to show itself inside fitted
wardrobes. Some also came into the adjacent room through a ventilation
grille. Eventually I had to have the floor replaced in first room, and
the amount of plant I found growing under the floor was quite
surprising. Its origin would have been with plants growing in outdoors,
on the other side of the wall, but I had killed all that off some years
