Houseplants that are easy to care for and do well in low light conditions include English ivy, dieffenbachia, peace lily, snake plant and peperomia. All do well in normal indoor temperatures, although English ivy can handle temperatures as low as the mid-50s.
English ivy, dieffenbachia and peace lily do best in moist soil, while the snake plant and peperomia need less water. English ivy trails down furniture as it grows, and dieffenbachia can grow as tall as 6 feet, but the others stay small or fairly well contained. The peace lily has curling white blooms, and the snake plant occasionally blooms small white flowers.
