These gorgeous little flowers are one of the easiest houseplants you can keep in your home. There are literally hundreds of forms and varieties. They vary from flower to flower, so if you don’t like one you can choose another one instead. African Violets do require filtered sunlight and warm conditions, so make sure the temperature stays moderately warm wherever you place them at. They also have soft, fuzzy leaves you have to be very careful about. If you get cold water on them brown spots can appear on the leaves. On a positive note, if someone likes your flowers you can share them! All you have to do is cut off a leaf and put it in some potting soil.
Do you want flowers that appear a little more delicate? Flowering Maple is another gorgeous flowering plant. Its leaves have the appearance of festive lanterns when they bloom. They come in a variety of colors and shades such as: yellow, red, orange, and pink. You can grow the plant like a tree, keep it in a hanging basket, or just snip its leaves back so it appears to be a shrub. It does require moderate temperatures of 65-75 degrees, and some bright light to grow. This flowering plant grows fast, so be careful about keeping it trimmed.
The air inside your home can become very dry with low humidity. Peace lilies are excellent for these conditions, and actually prefer to have low light to grow. Their flowers are spoon shaped, and grow in a creamy white color. The summer is when these flowers tend to bloom the most. Even when the plant is not flowering, its leaves are very decorative. They can even withstand partially high and low temperatures between 60-85 degrees. Just make sure the soil remains moist for the flower so it can grow properly. Do be aware though, the peace lily is poisonous to animals and plants if chewed on. So make sure it’s in a place where they cannot reach it.
These are only a handful of some of the most gorgeous indoor flowers you can grow. You can keep these flowers in pots, and enjoy them year round. Even if they’re not always flowering, the greenery makes them look very attractive. Since the plants are indoors, they will also make sure you have a fresh supply of air since they feed off of carbon dioxide. Also, be sure to check any flowers you bring inside no pets or children will try to chew on. Some varieties are poisonous.
