What plants you can use would depend on your location.
Try pothos (devils ivy), some of the tree begonias can add some indoor colour, calathea, soft velvet leaves, Mouse thorn, an unusual plant with what appears to be flowers in the middle of the leaf. A novelty plant. Orchids and so on. I guess you can keep a wide variety of plants inside providing you create the environment, including palms, bamboos, tree ferns and other types of ferns, etc. I have been gardening over 60 odd years with some breaks in between due to work demands and have been willing to try all sorts of plants. some worked well others :(

Boston ferns are great for indoors. Keep it damp and take it out into the rain now and then. But don't leave in a real downpour.

Peace lilies are lovely and very decorative. Tough too.

Even the old ficus tree can be very interesting. Just don't plant it out in the garden when you are finished with it. Keep it in a pot.

My madonna lily has been very forgiving of me. I forget to water it and it still survives. I have a deep water tray placed under the pot so that I can give the plant a good soak every now and again - at other times I leave it till the soil totally dries out and the plant starts to look limp. I have it placed on a window sill that is mainly in shade but allows a lot of light in. I don't ever put it outside because I am sure the wind and extreme weather we have here would kill it.

Even the hard, dull, dry ground harbours life - which is brought to the surface with the fresh touch of drenching rain (or the humble watering can).

Madonna lily is the kind i'm thinking would be okay. i have a tendency to forget to water plans sometimes:) They say air purifier cleans the air or filter dusts and pollen around,but in case i won't be using my filter, there are plants which is good in filtering the air.
