Flowering Plants

This week, for Plant Tip Tuesday...

Just in time for Mother's Day, we're talking about indoor flowering plants!

A few of our favorites are:

  • Orchids
  • African Violets
  • Cyclamen
  • Bromeliads
  • Kalanchoes and Calandivas

Currently for Mother’s Day we have mixed dish gardens that include some of these showy beauties.

Most Flowering plants like a bright filtered light location.   

Remove any spent blooms, as this will encourage new flowers. 

Flowering plants typically put out a flush of blooms and then they go through a growth cycle.  Depending on the variety of plant they may rebloom soon after or it may take a few months to get flowers again.  We recommend using a blooming fertilizer for all flowering plants.  The fertilizer will help to develop strong and prolific flower buds.

We all love a lush tropical houseplant but flowering plants are a great way to add a pop of colour into your décor!
