Need advice and recs for an impossible house plant situation!
Alrighty, this may be a hopeless quest but you good folks might have some answers.
I need to find plants that will tolerate really, really shady light and cold temps. How shady? My room faces west, but it's overshadowed by a giant balcony from the floor above. It gets no direct sunlight during the day. It's shady enough to where I need to turn on a light if I have to read in the day time. And it's very cold this time of year -- not freezing. Maybe in the 50s or low 60s, and colder at night. I live in San Francisco so it's pretty mild. It feels cold like a basement (but not drafty).
Does a magical, shade-adoring, cold climate plant exist?
It occurs to me that in order to support a bit of life in my room/cave I might need to invest in a fluorescent lamp.
I bow to your good advice, and am grateful, as always.
