All plants produce a cetain amount of oxygen, but it is unlikely that a single plant could make a significant difference to the atmosphere within a particular room, especially if there is much air exchange with surrounding areas such as would occur through a gap at the base of the door. However, every little bit helps! Some plants that will tolerate a low amount of light are: pothos, mother-in-law's tongue, and philodendron.
