House plants are not safe around me. I've managed to kill yet another one outright and my Peace Lily is looking like it might buy it any minute. I don't know how it happens, since the houseplant apocalypse of aught seven I've been much more careful with the watering and the feeding and the light requirements and not saying mean things to them... but still they die.
With that in mind I've compiled a list of plants that have a reputation of being unkillable:
Apparently you bung it in a low to medium lit spot then water it VERY sparingly in the winter. Which doesn't sound too hard.
Likes a bit of light and not too much water. There's a guide to common problems and troubleshooting here
I have to admit to killing one of these about a month ago. I put it in direct too sunlight and it turned up it's toes (the big wimp). Theoretically they are easy enough, the just need regular watering and a shady-ish spot.
Needs to be kept moist but not wet in filtered light. You can get them trained into that cool ball shape too.
You could also try Dracaenas, Bromeliads spider plants and Areca palms. Or just say 'PAH' to them and embrace the plastic.
