Houseplants are good for you.

Adding some greenery to your home is good for you. It’ll help you cope with the snow and cold of this past weekend and house plants will help clean the air and add color and form to most any room in your home. When it comes to choosing plants for inside the home, the most important factor is to make sure you select a plant that will grow and thrive in the light conditions available in the house. You can grow houseplants successfully, if you choose plants which are suited for the available light in your home. Here are some plants that are easy to grow and will do well in low light conditions.
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema) easy to grow in low to bright light conditions (no direct sunlight). Keep the soil moist, but not soggy. Feed your plant monthly and enjoy its attractive variegated leaves.
Heartleaf Philodendron (Sweetheart Plant) is an extremely easy plant to grow. It will do fine if you let it dry out slightly, before watering and feed it once a month.
Snake Plant (Sansevieria) also known as mother-in-law tongue is the plant for you if you tend to neglect your house plants. It is tough, durable and very tolerant of low light.
Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum) is found on the floor of the rain forest, which explains why it can cope with low lighting indoors. Feed your Peace Lily every month with 20-20-20 fertilizer.
Pothos are close relatives to philodendrons. They are easy to grow in low light conditions and will still do okay if you forget to water them occasionally.
Peperomia is easy to grow and will thrive as long as you don’t overwater them. Let the soil dry out slightly before you water again.
