North facing windows and areas with plenty of flourescent light throughout the day. Plants should be placed as close to the windows as possible and no more than 20 feet away. If it's too dark to read then it's too dark for a plant. To determent how much light your space gets, at noon when the sun is the brightest, come close to the spot where you are planning to place a plant and inspect the shadow. Faint shadow that lacks good definition means it is a low light spot.
