hi. i basically have no direct sun and a few hours of indirect sun in my house. are there outdoor 'shade' plants that you could suggest that i could plant in pots for indoors? standard indoor 'low light' plants are usually so boring. suggestions welcome!

Wish there were a whole housefull of plants to recommend but flowering plants need direct sunshine. You might get by with impatiens and pansies, primroses, coleus and lobelia but none will flower more than about 6 weeks indoors. Hope about caladiums? They do go dormant in the fall and rest over the winter months, but will grow beautifully all spring and summer indoors.
