Not seeing a double post and I feel like I came in in the middle of a conversation.
But yes, lots of things hate the winter (including me!). My house plants, you know the typical arrowhead vine, parlor palm, dieffenbachia, dracaena, peace lily, philodendron stuff, do just fine. I have one geranium that has been blooming the whole time since I brought it in and one that is not doing as well. My big ficus (a tree that is taller than I am) is not thriving this year. Since it has done great indoors previous winters, I'm thinking that is more about soil depletion. It is a huge tree (for indoors) in a huge pot and so I haven't repotted it for a long time.
I have several variegated coleus, which gradually lose all their color over the winter from lack of light. Once they go back outside in the spring, they color up again. I think it is kind of interesting to watch. For Christmas I was given a beautiful cyclamen in full bloom. It is in a pretty low light situation, but in front of a mirror, which helps reflect some of the light back at it. It is doing pretty well, but is more sensitive to lack of water than most of my plants and keeps wilting, then perking up when it gets watered. It has kind of waxy leaves, which may not drink in the misting water as well as the other plants do. And it may be kind of pot bound, I haven't really checked.
But yeah, I don't have any really great windows, between trees, houses very close by and general poor compass orientation. I have a multi headed floor lamp that I shine on some of the plants that need the most light and everything is on plant stands, to raise them up to window height, to get the best benefit.
