Only a few houseplants will tolerate low light levels, but here are your choices: Aglaonema (Chinese Evergreen), Chamaedorea elegans (Neanthe Bella Palm, Parlor Palm), Nephrolepsis exaltata (Boston Fern), Philodendron scandens var. oxycardium (Heart Leaf Philodrendron), Sansevieria trifasciata (Mother-In-Law's Tongue, Snake Plant), Spathiphyllum sp. (White Flag). You can expand your choices if you install some supplemental lighting such as a gro-light or a bank of fluorescent lights. Best wishes with your new plants!
