If you're interested in adding some color to your home, consider indoor flowering plants. There are a wide variety of flowering plants to choose from, all of which can adapt comfortably to life inside your home. Unlike cut flowers that fade within days, you can keep your flowering houseplants blooming again and again. Here are some suggestions for the best flowering indoor plants:

African violet

African violets are some of the most adaptable flowering plants available. There are also hundreds of varieties to choose from, making it a perfect choice for adding an abundance of color to your home. The most important aspect of caring for your African violet is to water it carefully and avoid getting the leaves wet. Keeping the soil moist will ensure it thrives in your home and continues to produce colorful blooms.

Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe is a type of succulent that produces bright clusters of blooms. The flowers come in shades of orange, yellow, red and pink with rich oval-shaped leaves. Kalanchoe blooms easily indoors during winter and spring, and will continue to brighten your indoor space as long as you keep it in a well-draining potting mix and out of direct sunlight.

Anthurium

Anthurium, also called flamingo flower, is another excellent option for an indoor flowering plant. This plant produces heart-shaped flowers in bright shades of red and pink, though some rarer varieties appear with white, purple and multi-colored blooms. The flowers last a long time when grown in medium to bright light with consistently warm temperatures.
