Violets! I've had African Violets for years and they are the best houseplant for me! They don't require a whole lot of care and the blooms are profuse and last forever. Of course, at this particular moment in time mine are almost all in a nonblooming stage. I wish I had taken a photo a month or two ago. It was particularly beautiful. I had a couple of these for a long time, but when I was pregnant with Chloe I started a bunch of them from leaf cuttings. They were given as gifts and I kept a few. I now have 4 regular AV's and one mini that I got at an AV show. The mini is my favorite.
If you are interested in having a house plant, but think you don't have a green thumb, give an AV a try. I recommend you buy a two part pot which you can find at a garden shop. I've even made one at a paint your own pottery place. This is a pot that the plant sits in, then you place that one in another pot which holds the water. With this system they get just enough water and you only need to fill the pot every week or two. I also recommend regular feedings with an AV fertilizer. I put just a few drops in the water every time I fill it. Mine sit in our kitchen window just behind my sink which means that I easily remember to fill the water pot. I have found that this is the perfect amount of light for them. You might need to move yours around to different spots until you find the perfect light situation.
