For all the flower lovers out there, we have come up with a list of popular and affordable flowering houseplants.
The Love for Blooming Plants
Adding a blooming plant to your home will help brighten up your living space. All the different flower shapes, colors, and sizes make it easy to find the perfect plant you’re looking for. Flowering houseplants are also relatively easy to care for, as long as you provide them with what they need to thrive. Many indoor flowering plants will bloom regularly, or even year-round.
3 Popular Houseplants That Make a Great Addition to Home Decor…
The African Violet is one of the most popular flowering plants out there, and there’s a good reason for that. African Violets flower year-round with several flowers on one stem giving them a full head of blooms. Flowers come in all types of shapes, sizes, and colors across the whole spectrum.
Caring for an African Violet isn’t too difficult either. Water the soil only when the top soil loses moisture, soggy soil is a no-go. Use a topsoil mixture that is airy and loose, usually a 50% – 50% ratio of perlite and peat moss. Lighting should be indirect for a few hours a day; they bloom best in these conditions.
Similar to the African Violet, Begonias require almost the same care but are still rather low-maintenance. Begonias like indirect sunlight or partial shade. Water the plant once a week, when the top inch is on the drier side as they like to be semi-moist. Well-draining soil is best for these plants and using a 50% – 50% ratio of peat moss and perlite is recommended.
Begonia flowers come in orange, yellow, red, pink, and white. Their blooms can be less showy than other flowering houseplants, but the foliage is stunning. The flowers can last for a long period of time, some for many weeks with a few varieties blooming non-stop. These flowering plants bloom during the summer to late autumn.
Last up, we have the Moth Orchid! A lot of people steer clear from Orchids, but they’re really not hard to care for. The main reason Orchids die is because they’re in the wrong potting medium and are often overwatered. Orchids should be grown in a bark mixture, not peat moss! This plant must be allowed to dry out in between waterings, when the bark is dry to the touch, that’s when you thoroughly water this plant.
Lighting is also a key factor in allowing this flowering plant to thrive! The light conditions should be bright, indirect sunlight. Orchid flowers can last for months at a time, year-round. Their blooms can be purple, red, yellow, pink, and peach! Different varieties can have a speckled combination of these colors, making them pretty unique and beautiful!
If you’re looking for flowering houseplants that are affordable and bloom year-round, African Violets, Begonias, and Moth Orchids are all amazing choices. The flowers come in dozens of shapes and colors. These plants themselves also range from small to large, giving you a variety to choose from.
