We experimented years ago but soon went back to geraniums as they tick all the correct boxes.

I haven't actually tried it but I've read that basil works well.

I did wonder if say mint might work, but i've found a practical by Nuffield foundation which says Tradescantia and Impatiens can be used - i'm going to try later with our Tradescantia - i'll let everyone know if it works

Hi the Tradescantia does work but i've not yet managed to get the "in darkness" plant to work yet.

The problem with "in the dark plants" is how quickly they start making starch as soon as they come out of their box etc. I have heard this can be as little as 20 minutes..
