Would love to have plants inside all year, but not many places to put them out of dog reach. So am thinking hanging baskets. My house gets very little natural light inside as the trees and azaleas are all so big...helps keep cool in summer, but on a cloudy day it's like living in a dungeon. What plants would ya'll suggest for a hanging basket that won't get much light?? Something that blooms would be a plus, but not necessary. I have tried spiders, wandering jew and purple passion so far....they were NOT happy Shrug!

Hoya carnosa is a good one. I keep mine to the side of a North window and it blooms happily.
Spiders should be happy. Episcia might like it. Ferns are a good bet too. Philodendron can survive in low light as well.

I would LOVE to have an episcia...got a cutting from my son's Godmother about 36 years ago. It was doing really well, but when we divorced I didn't get custody of it and no clue what happened to it.
