    Out of 16,000 or so members, someone's got to have the experience to answer this question. We'll be taking over an account in the near future that will include interior landscape management. One thing the customer wants to do is to replace the plants in a low light level area with something else. What would be some good plant varieties? Prefer low maintenance requirements, with good, thick growing habits, as well as being attractive. Experience needed, ideas welcomed. TIA.

    What I did was cycle plants every 4-6 weeks, putting them in a place that got enough sun for a couple of weeks, then put them in the low light areas for about 4 weeks. I repeated this cycle throughout the year. Cyclamens worked well and gave a nice flower display.

    I don't know that cycling would be an option here ... how did you go about it?
