What do you know of:

Calla Lillies & Orchids, Jacobinia & Bromeliads, Silver Lace Plants & African Violets ?

Looking for something PRETTY, that can grow on lower lights, & not too hard to care for - for my elderly mother.

Can anyone advise me on any of these as to what might be best.

I have bromeliads, orchids & violets, all of them grow well in the house. They do need a little bit of sun even if its just sitting on an end table in the livingroom & opening the curtains. I give them water as needed, some Miracle Grow about once every 3 months & pick off the dead flowers as needed.
I planted a fern in the house and it seems to do doing well so far also.
