Indoor flowers

To have a particularly welcoming but at the same time healthy home, one of the most popular remedies is certainly the inclusion of flowering plants. The flowers are able to give a touch of color to the furnishings, creating a more welcoming and pleasant home; at the same time they take care of the air making it more fresh and clean.
Whether it is a domestic environment or an office, the flowers help to immediately improve the mood, instilling in man a pleasant feeling of well-being. However, it is important to choose our plant very carefully, carefully assessing its needs. Depending on the characteristics of the flowers it will be necessary to place them in a suitable place or more or less close to direct light sources; another key feature is the need for water which determines the frequency of watering. It is also important to take into account the degree of humidity of the air as some varieties like particularly humid rooms so that in the presence of a very dry environment it will be necessary to vaporize the plant frequently with fresh water.
A flowering plant is a wonderful decorative element that can change the appearance of even the least hospitable home / office; on the other hand it is important to remember that it is always a living being and not a mere ornament. To grow well, the plant needs constant care, regular watering and fertilizing, buying it and not caring for it or neglecting it doesn't make much sense. Alternatively, if you have little time, you can start with a houseplant without flowers as they are generally more resistant varieties.
Instead we see the most beautiful and interesting types of flowering plants for our interiors.


It is one of the most famous indoor varieties. It is characterized by very large, fleshy leaves and a beautiful dark green color. The stem is long and thin, crowned with clusters of lateral inflorescences.
The orchid is a fairly resistant plant even if it needs special care and a lot of constancy. The flowers, once blossomed, last a long time. The colors are variable, they can range from pink to purple, from white to yellow. The orchid likes bright areas but not direct exposure to sunlight. It grows well when the room temperature fluctuates between 15 and 20 degrees while it tends to fade if the environment is too hot. It is a plant that also loves wet places and needs a medium watering (more abundant during the hot summer months). In case of an environment that is too hot, it is necessary to spray the leaves with a jet of fresh water. For those who love imposing blooms but at the same time do not want to give up the elegance of the orchid it is necessary to recommend the Brazilian variety called Miltonia; its flowers can measure up to 9 cm.

Guzmania lingulata

Also in this case we are faced with a plant that loves environments with high humidity. The Guzmania lingulata shows long leaves of a beautiful light green and with an inflorescence of considerable proportions compared to the size of the plant itself. The flower stands out for its bright colors even if in reality it is not a real flower but leaves that look like flowers. It would like to be placed on the balcony even if it could not withstand temperatures below 15 ° so the home environment is a perfect place for its cultivation. It needs a lot of non-direct light, thanks to which it manages to make its colors even more vivid and bright.

Calla albomaculata (Zantedeschia)

The Calla albomaculata (or Zantedeschia) is a tuber of easy maintenance. You can buy the bulb directly, place it in a pot with plenty of soil and leave it in a sunny area. It loves the direct rays of the sun, especially during its initial growth phase it also prefers abundant watering. For Calla to grow vigorously it is important to keep the soil quite moist as it is a variety that particularly loves wet and cool places. It is also possible to place the plant on the terrace or in your own garden, remembering however to bring it back home during the winter period as it suffers very cold temperatures and would not be able to survive.

Amaryllis (or more correctly Hippeastrum)

Delicious flowery apartment plant that amazes with its bright and colorful colors. Also in this case it is a plant that can be purchased in the form of a bulb. Seeing it grow gives a lot of satisfaction when the plant grows very tall. The bulbs should be planted with plenty of soil and placed near a window; unlike the Calla albomaculata, the Amaryllis bulb must sprout one third above the ground. It does not tolerate water stagnation, therefore it is necessary to perform frequent but not too abundant irrigation. At the same time it is possible to nebulize the leaves with abundant fresh water. Cut flowers are also very popular in Amaryllis, as they last unaltered for many days and bring freshness and color to any type of environment. After the normal flowering cycle it is possible to extract the bulb from the soil and keep it in a cool and dry place. After about seven weeks the bulb can be replanted, giving a new flowering.
