Hi, interested in mules ear, staghorn fern and pickle cacti. DebK

Most of those plants on your list will survive the winter in a north window, but don't expect them to fluorish. Of those plants the best candidates for a north window are:
sanseveria, peperomia, rubber tree, spider plant, staghorn, bromeliads and jade. Be careful to protect them from cold drafts and be sure not to overwater.
