You can't go wrong with different types of citrus! Most will do well in container, although dwarf cultivars are more suited for the task. They will tolerate a good bit of shade, too, without sacrificing growth. Many will grow these in container, indoors, with little to no issue.


Ferns are another choice, as they are found in shaded areas, naturally.

Vines of many sorts will grow in shade, and be a better choice for container if they are more invasive.

There are many choices, and you can find more detailed information about some of them, here:
