FAQ: I would like to grow some plants indoors under lights. Do you have any suggestions other than African Violets?

Oh my!  I have many, but here are a few: ferns such as maidenhair, button, holly ferns; gesneriads such as Achimenes, Columnea, Episcia and Sinningia; cacti such as ball, cob, crown and pincushion; orchids such as Cattleya, Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, Brassia and Paphiopedilum; succulents such as Aloe, Haworthia, Echeveria and Agave; Pilea, miniature roses, Tradescantia, bromeliads, thyme, basil, Oxalis, Maranta, dwarf crape myrtles, Impatiens, Gardenia, Hoya, Hedera, Cuphea and Coleus.  Start with those.
