Best indoor plants for direct morning sun?

I have a large kitchen window that faces directly east. I wanted to put some plants on the sill, but don't know what green, fleshy plants will survive in such a spot. I don't know much about plants - I have Peace Lillies around the rest of the house, but know that they wouldn't appreciate the amount of light that this particular spot gets.


Thanks for your answers.

- I do like Cyclamen, but they look horrible when they stop flowering.

- Don't really like herbs all that much.

    Even though it's direct east light is kind of weak so plants like Peace lilies that like indirect light would do well there. Also pothos and ferns. Shade loving herbs like mint, parsley, and chives would like that location too.

    Orange or Lemon ? Or advance your own Avocado from a stone (they take numerous weeks to germinate) i'd be careful of the Dumb Cane once you've little ones or pets. once you've constrained mild supplies and also you want a plant which prospers on mild, you should purchase a plant trolley that's only a flat board on low wheels (not many times noticeable) and flow your plant round. Or - I have an somewhat darkish stairwell without organic mild; 0.5 way up the position the steps bend I have a small synthetic pink maple (about 6' extreme) in a tall, Aztec pot, somewhat like an umbrella stand antagonistic to a awesome-white painted wall - it truly is so good that visitors imagine it truly is real! There are some somewhat good fake bushes that are nicely worth pondering if mild is an argument - expensive yet they by no capacity die, or maybe as jumbled mutually with residing flora, are confusing to inform aside. I take it outdoors some circumstances a three hundred and sixty 5 days even as the sunlight is shining, and dirt it with a mild spray from the hose pipe even as it stands interior the rotary washing-line submit hollow, then it dries off interior the sunlight.

    Jade plants, orchids, small palms, arboricola sheffleirra and of course some herbs like chives, parsley, cilantro and lettuces are just some of the plants that should do well.

    Cyclamen are a beautiful flowering plant which thrive in early morning sun,before it becomes too strong.Stand pot grown plants in a saucer of tepid water,let them drain and they will flower for months.

    Why not grow a few little pots of herbs? Chives and parsley would grow well there. As would leafy greens like lettuce (pick as they grow).
