Indoor Flowering Plants: Make Your Home Beautiful

Share this post...

Obviously, there are hundreds of kinds of houseplants. But indoor flowering plants are sure to bring color, vibrance, and often a lovely scent into your home. And if you’re worried that you don’t have much of a green thumb, don’t fret! We’ll tell you what it takes to keep your flowering plants happy and healthy. Read on to brighten your rooms.

5 Indoor Flowering Plants to Make Your Home Beautiful

Flowering African Violet for Indoors

African Violet

One of the most popular flowering houseplants is the African Violet and for a good reason. These beauties don’t need a dormant resting period, which means they bloom throughout the year. Although they’re called violets, they come in white, red, and purple.

While they’re not high maintenance, the leafy, small plants will grow best inside a container that allows them to take up water from the bottom. These bloomers don’t have extensive root systems. Therefore, you’ll only need a five to six-inch pot at most once they reach maturity. And while the African violet isn’t a demanding plant, it may die without warning after flourishing for many years.

To keep your African Violet healthy, be sure to get rid of dead leaves and re-pot only when the plant gets too big for the pot it currently uses. Lastly, if cold water rests on their leaves, they may spot, turn brown, and die, so avoid that.

Begonia Indoor Flowering Plants

Many of us have probably grown these pretty little flowers outside of our homes. Still, they also come in many varieties that make excellent houseplants that bloom almost every day under the right conditions.

Make sure to place your begonia in a bright area of the home. However, it’s best not to leave it near a window where the draft may damage it. Begonias also come with colorful leaves, which add a splash of brightness to your home even when not in bloom. Apart from the Rex begonia, you can also investigate other fibrous-rooted kinds such as the angel-wing, hairy-leaved, and wax-leaved varieties.

Bromeliad

Bromeliad

These colorful and quirky looking plants belong to the pineapple family, which explains their weird resemblance. Thankfully though, many of them don’t grow to be as big as pineapple plants and can fit comfortably in our homes. You can tell a plant is a bromeliad thanks to its showy flowers and colorful basal rosettes. These come in an assortment of colors such as orange, yellow, pink, and red.

The bromeliad is a tropical plant, with many varieties being epiphytes or air plants. The air plant types absorb moisture from the atmosphere instead of the plant that serves as their host. This plant will do well in brightly lit rooms and won’t need a lot of water. But when you do water them, be sure to place water in between the leaves. This way, the water will take time to be absorbed.

Chenille Plant

This tropical plant is also known as the red-hot cattail as it boasts fuzzy, cat-fur-like red flowers. The chenille plant is both a long bloomer and a fast grower, so you can enjoy it for longer without doing much work. It can be grown outside during the summer and then placed inside your home in the colder months.

A chenille plant becomes partially dormant in winter, so avoid feeding it until it receives new spring growth. It’s best to remove the stem’s tips with sharp plant shears to encourage branching during the growing season. And misting it with water while indoors will keep it happy and healthy. Chenille plants love humidity, so keep them moist to make them thrive.

Indoor Flowering Christmas Cactus Plant

Christmas Cactus Indoor Flowering Plants

In general, cacti are easy to care for, and the Christmas cactus is no exception. It doesn’t even require you to set its exposure to the light for it to grow little buds. Also, not only does it propagate quickly from cuttings, but it lives a long time too. Each stem tip produces flowers with a color palette in various pink and red hues, with different length petals.

Apart from being a Christmas bloomer, this plant also has family members that bloom around Easter. While the Christmas cactus is happy when placed near a window, don’t let its pads touch anything cold. This will damage it. Additionally, keep in mind that the Christmas cactus will need high humidity (mist it frequently) and well-draining soil.
