Answer: Snake plant (mother-in-law's tongue) is a good choice for low light conditions. Most houseplants do best in bright to medium light, but some will tolerate low light. Some other choices include cast iron plant, chinese evergreen, corn plant, dumbcane (dieffenbachia), dwarf schefflera, philodendron, dracaena marginata, pothos, rubber plant. They won't survive in no light, so you might consider a grow lamp, or having several plants and rotating them to rooms with natural light. As a general guideline for watering, stick your finger in the soil. When it feels dry, it's usually time to water. Most houseplants grow during the summer and are somewhat dormant in the winter, so water needs are then reduced.
