Indoor flowering plants: 3 Expert tips

by Anna Glassman 09/12/2022

Indoor flowering plants might seem intimidating even to experienced houseplant owners. However, there are many options for low-maintenance indoor flowers to brighten up your home. It's also simpler to help your indoor flowering plants thrive if you follow some basic best practices. Here are some tips for growing indoor flowering plants:

Give them enough sun

While most plants will adapt to indoor conditions, flowering plants cannot produce blooms unless they get enough sunlight. It's important to make sure your indoor flowers get the light they need throughout their growing season to encourage blooms and healthy new growth. Some plants require direct sunlight, while other more delicate varieties prefer filtered sun. Research your individual plant's needs to give it the best possible home environment.

Water regularly

While many houseplants are fine without a strict watering schedule, most flowering indoor plants require consistent watering to thrive. How frequently you water depends on the type of plant you choose, but once you have a schedule, try to stick to it. It's also essential to be aware of other factors that can affect water needs, such as ambient humidity, light, temperature and growing season. For example, many plants go dormant in winter and therefore don't need as much water as they do at the peak of their growing season.

Know when to fertilize

Indoor plants only have access to the nutrients contained in their soil. Therefore, it's crucial to supplement their nutrition with fertilizer, especially to ensure healthy blooms. Most plants will benefit from a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted with distilled water. Some indoor flowering plants, like orchids, have more specific nutritional needs.

For the healthiest plants and the best possible flowers, find out what your plants of choice require and how frequently.
