Flowers on the porch are beautiful and look great for the neighbors, but if you spend most of your day inside, you want flowers you can see and enjoy too. Growing flowering plants in pots indoors is a little bit different than outside in a garden, so you'll need to make sure you pick the right kinds of flowers and get the right supplies for them. But once you have all of the info, it's not too hard! Making Gardening Easy: How to Grow Flowers Indoors is a guide from Fox Hill Residences that breaks down which flowers do best indoors and how to care for them.

Brightening up the home with flowers seems like a fantastic idea, but indoor gardening can be challenging for beginners. Whether you do not have useable land to plant or winter is just around the corner, growing flowers indoors is an easy solution to keep your green thumb active. With a little practice and knowledge, you can master the hobby and find the right flowers for your indoor environment. Follow our indoor gardening guide to start cultivating fragrant floral accents for your home.

When picking flowers to grow indoors, consider the level of care you are able to provide. If you take frequent vacations, find plants that need to be watered only once a week or less. However, if your gardening hobby is an important priority, you may be able to care for more high-maintenance flowers. Talk to a gardening expert about your expectations and current indoor environment. They can point you in the direction of plants that fit your lifestyle and brighten up your home.

There are no general rules for how often you should water each plant or how much sunlight it needs, but understanding that every plant needs a few basic ingredients to survive is the first step to successful indoor gardening. Water, light, and a comfortable temperature range all help keep your flowers alive. Plants differ greatly and require a wide range of these necessary ingredients depending on the family of flower. Research your specific variety of flower to see the specific requirements for care.
