    I have the same problem and tho’ they’re not on the list I grow Christmas and Easter cactus which thrive in a north window! Any epiphyte will grow well in such conditions including orchids and ferns! x

Just please don’t plant English Ivy outside in the Northwest of the US. It’s invasive here and killing our forests. I suppose I could bring some in though, it’s all over the place outside and it grows like a weed. It’s not quite as bad as kudzu but it’s close.
