    Then don't worry about the bumps.

    You will be lucky if there is any grass there come beginning of October.

    What sort of "indoor display"? Are you wanting greenery, flowers, how big, how much light do you have, ...

    A lot of indoor plants are very fastidious, they don't like being moved, don't like draughts, don't like being near radiators etc and the more exotic the plant, often the more fastidious it is. So, while those orchids you see in the garden centre look wonderful, you'll have your work cut out to get it to flower again the following year.

    If you want something low maintenance I'd go for a variegated ivy or perhaps a spider plant. Both will look good hanging in an ornamental pot with their the foliage cascading over the sides.

    If you want something that flowers, how about a Christmas cactus? They're quite easy to look after - again, keep away from radiators, make sure it gets plenty of light and feed weekly when it's in flower.

    Variegated ivy and spider plants don't like full sun. So if the room is South facing you are going to have problems.

    Cactii are easy unless the room is North facing.
