Why do my plants grow in my south window but not my north window, and what plants will thrive in my north window?

My houseplants grow wonderfully in my south window, but every time I move one to a north window, the plant rebels. Do you have any suggestions for plants that will thrive in this window?

In the filtered light of your north window, try growing low-light tolerant plants. Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema), pothos (Epipremnum), heartleaf philodendron (Philodendron), and snake plant (Sansevieria) are all good easy-care choices.  Some ferns also would be good for this site. Boston fern (Nephrolepis exaltata 'Bostoniensis') is at home in a hanging basket or on a pedestal. Maidenhair fern (Adiantum pedatum) appreciates high humidity and moist soil. Fertilize every 4 weeks except in winter.
