Indoor, our condo apartment gets very little, to no sun. What kind of plant could I have in my home that would not mind this too much? The only sun we get is first thing in the morning and it doesn't last long. I miss having a living plant in my home.

    My suggestion: Place African Violets on the window ledge where you get the most sun; they love early morning sun & when they ae ng well they will reward you with colorful flowers. Don't be afraid to supplement plants with light provided by a florescent lamp; the special lights can be acquired at the local pet store, they are used for maintaining aquarium plants. Happy Growing!

      Hi Richardstarling... thank you for your reply. I'll write down the plants you have named and see if I can get them. Peace Lily sounds lovely and Mother-in-laws Tongue sounds very intriguing! :)

      Thanks Crystal... I remember air plants... so cute and able to survive without soil, if I remember correctly!

    Thank you for your response, Janet. Much appreciated...
    Does it matter that I live in B.C., Canada? The only one of those you mentioned that I'm familiar with is the philodendron... can it be grown in a pot? Thanks.

    Pothos, Peace Lily, Philodendron, Snake plant, and a ZZ plant will do well with no Sun.
