If you like flowering houseplants, there is a good chance that you are looking for ways that your houseplants can flower all year long. Flowering houseplants are especially fun to have during the winter months â€“ the blossoms add a “fun touch of life” to the interior of your home! In order to keep your houseplants continually blossoming, there are a couple of things that you need to do. Here are some of the ways to have houseplants that flower all year long:
1.Make sure you get the right kind of plant: First of all, you will obviously need to pick a houseplant that grows flowers. In addition, it is important that you make sure that you are aware of how long your houseplant flowers will last â€“ some flowers, like the Maid of Orleans, can flower all year long, but the flowers will only last one day. This means that your houseplant can be continually producing blossoms, but you will only enjoy the flower for about a day. Hibiscus flowers also are known to blossom throughout the year, but their blossoms only last for a day or two as well. Oxalis regnellii, or “Atropurpurea” is a great flowering houseplant which is constantly producing a lot of blossoms. This houseplant is a great option if you are looking for something that can produce a lot of flowers all year long.
2.Make sure that they get the light they need: One of the key things to getting houseplants that flower all year long is to make sure the plants get enough light. If you live in a place where it is usually sunny during the colder months, make sure that your plant is placed in an area where there is a lot of sunlight (but not close enough to the window that it will get really cold!). Another option that you can try is light lamps. If your plants aren’t getting the light and energy that they need in order to flower all year long, place them underneath light lamps. This will help the plants to have enough energy to be able to produce flowers all year long.
3.Fertilizer: You also can look into fertilizing your houseplants to make sure that they will flower all year long. However, read up on your basic care information for your houseplants before fertilizing, just to make sure that your plant will be able to handle fertilization. One plant that can be fertilized in the winter months is the African Violet, and proper fertilization and care for this plant allows it to have blossoms all throughout the year.
4.Check to see if your plant needs humidity: One of the things which can prevent your houseplants from flowering all year long is the lack of humidity. You should find out if your plant is one that requires humidity. If so, then you can spray your plant regularly with water or you can place a humidifier in the room with your plant. This way, you will be able to better ensure that your plant will be capable of producing flowers.
It’s easy to tell that most of these steps are interrelated, and it might be hard to get your plant to produce flowers all year long if you only follow one of these steps consistently. Follow all of these steps and pay attention to all of the needs of your houseplant. If you do this, you will be able to create an environment in your home that is suitable for your houseplants to flower all year long! Have lots of fun with your flowering houseplants this upcoming spring, summer, fall, and winter.
