The only thing better for your mental health than a leafy, green houseplant is one that produces beautiful blooms indoors. Luckily for you, indoor plants with blooms are fairly easy to come by – just remember that some houseplants might take years to produce blooms, so you should take pleasure in them as foliage plants first and foremost. Think of when that day comes – won’t it be so rewarding?
Once you bring your flowering plant home, they will require specific growing conditions to flourish. Thankfully, watering needs are the same for most indoor plants. All you have to do is keep the soil damp at all times. As for lighting requirements, it will depend on the specific plant. Generally, most indoor flowering plants are able to reside in various lighting situations within your apartment home. To decide what’s best for the plant of your choice, first, you’ll have to choose the plant itself! Read below for our suggestions for 5 indoor plants with the most beautiful flowers!
Native to South Africa, clivia plants are famous for their trumpet-like blooms that range in color, from pale orange to red. Outdoors, they require lots of shade to grow, but inside, they prefer bright, indirect light to thrive as container plants, so place them in a south or west-facing window.
Crown of Thorns
The succulent cousin of the poinsettia plant, Euphorbia milii, known as the crown of thorns, produces small, colorful blooms. Use a well-drained potting medium and allow the plant to dry between watering. Keep in mind that they flower best in full sun. Again, place them in a south or west-facing window.
For a flowering houseplant that doesn't require full sun, consider African violets. These fuzzy-leaved African natives are perfect for an east window or under electric lights. Keep them evenly moist by using a well-drained potting medium. Yep – that’s it!
Chrysanthemums are an ideal plant for growing indoors. They require very little care other than keeping the soil moist and making sure the pot has good drainage, like most of these flowering indoor plants. The blooms generally last three to four weeks and come in a variety of vibrant colors.
Known for their large, heart-shaped leaves and romantic white blooms, anthuriums are not fussy and easy to care for indoors. These beauties will thrive in a warm, bright spot in your home with a bit of extra humidity and can tolerate low to bright, indirect light.
