If you have a flair for gardening, and enjoy giving gifts to people you know and admire, then collecting indoor flowering plants may be just the thing for you! Indoor plants can range from inexpensive, fast growing herbs, to exotic or rare species that can take over an entire room within a year. For many, indoor plant collection is a hobby that goes beyond the walls of their homes. There are an abundance of indoor plant species that can make beautiful additions to your home, office, or hobby garden.

Some of the most popular indoor flowering plants are pothos, orchids, cacti, and many others. Most pothos are quite hardy and grow nicely in most kinds of soil conditions. However there are some exotic orchids such as the coral cactus or the starflower cactus that can be a little more difficult to care for. Most pothos are relatively inexpensive and easy to keep. This is because some of them require only a few basic caring and maintenance steps and can live for years.

Cacti are also very popular indoor flowering plants. These come in a wide array of varieties and bloom all year long. They are a great way to add color and drama to the home and office space during the holidays or other times of celebration. They will grow quickly, but you do want to provide them with plenty of light so they bloom. Cacti can be a challenge to maintain but there are some varieties that do quite well in low light environments. This is the best time of year to try and give your indoor plants a boost with artificial sunlight.

Orchids are another favorite for people who collect indoor flowering plants and flowers. There is just something wonderful about orchids in general. There are many different species, but there are some that bloom best under specific conditions. If you have the best growing conditions for that species of orchid, then it will flourish in your home or office. Some types will need more sunlight than others, but most orchids do well with minimal light.

The amount of humidity that you have in your environment and how much salt and water you use plays a part in the health of your flowering plants and flowers. Most flowers reduce stress by using their root systems to build a protective bubble around their roots. If you have a plant that does not have a root system, it will be very susceptible to water loss, which is one of the biggest causes of indoor pollution. Most indoor plants should be kept in a moist atmosphere, which can be done by using a dehumidifier. A humidifier should be located where the plant will be receiving plenty of sunlight, but if you don’t have this luxury there are some good plastic pots you can place indoors that will help moisture retain in the air.

One of the worst things that can happen to your flowering indoor plants is to have them get burned when you’re pruning them. It’s important that you prune your flowers at least once a year. Make sure that you don’t prune your flowering plants too much as this will damage the roots. If you want to have low light indoor plants, then you need to consider pruning your plants during the winter months. The reason that you want to do this is because flowering indoor plants don’t do well in low light environments.

African Violets are one of the most popular indoor flowering plants. They come in many different colors, so they are easy to take care of. Most African Violets will bloom all year, but there are some varieties that bloom better at certain times. Some African Violets will bloom more during the spring months, and some will even bloom more during the fall months. The most popular colors for African Violets are pink, yellow, and white.

Bottom Line

This is a great way to have many types of flowering plants all year round. This is a very attractive option because these plants don’t need to be moved around as often, or need a lot of maintenance. You just need to make sure that you provide them with enough sunlight and water.
