Many people grow houseplants in the winter months as a way to brighten the home and to keep the feel of gardening alive.
In my home houseplants are difficult to grow and I have had many people ask questions so here is a you tube about houseplants and a few varieties that are very hardy. And the plant selections are plants that add color to a home and in the winter that is important.
What I like about the selection of plants they talk about on this video is the selection of plants for high lighting in a room, medium lighting and low lighting.
In NW PA you tend to have more medium to low light in the winter unless you have a sunroom. And many renters and urban home have lower lighting conditions so this you tube and the mist below may help you select medium to low light plants for your home.
Medium light House plants

Low Light House plants
Ferns and pothos are also popular and easy to care for houseplants for medium low light or low light conditions.
House plants are fun, great for the indoor environment and will keep the indoor gardener somewhat occupied while waiting for better weather.
