Some popular indoor flowering plants include African violet, Orchid, Peace lily, Kalanchoe, Azalea, Begonia and many more. These plants can bloom in different seasons and have different shapes and sizes.
Decorating with flowering plants can be both joyful and tricky at the same time. Here are some tips that might help:
Pick a color scheme: Decide on a few colors that you want to use in your space and stick to those colors throughout when picking your flowering plants. You can choose complementary colors or create a monochromatic look with varying shades of the same color.
Create focal points: Use flowering plants as focal points in a room by highlighting it with a light above, placing it on a central piece of furniture etc. This will draw the eye towards the flowering plant when walking in to a room.
Experiment with size and shapes: If you only want one color on the flowers different sizes and shapes might help mixing it up a bit.
Have fun: Don't be afraid to experiment with different color combinations and try growing new flowering plants. Remember, color is a personal preference, and what works for one person may not work for another. So, have fun and let your personality shine through when picking your flowering plants.
More about colors: Complementary colors are pairs of colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. When combined, they enhance and contrast each other, creating a harmonious and balanced look. Some common examples of complementary color pairs include:
Red and green
Blue and orange
Yellow and purple
Pink and teal
Black and white
When using complementary colors with your flowering plants, consider using one as the dominant color and the other as an accent. This helps to create a visually interesting space without overwhelming the eye. For example, if you have a blue and orange color scheme, you might paint the walls blue and use orange flowering plants as accents in the room.
When you have picked your flowering plants and placed them throughout you of course want them to live for a while. Here are therefore some tips on how to make your flowering plants thrive and make the flowering display last longer:
After considering colors: double check that your plants are suited for your space based on the amount of light, water and care they need.
Pick a suitable container for the plants, either a traditional planter or a more decorative one to match your decor style. Just make sure to that the pot has drainage holes or use a pot with drainage holes and place it in the outer pot.
Fill the pot with high-quality potting soil (suited for your plant), leaving enough room for the roots of the plants to grow.
Make sure that your flowering plants are sheltered against draft and / or cold.
Don't move your flowering plants more than needed (some can drop their buds if moved).
Keep following Plantas schedule and your flowering display should hopefully keep on flowering for a long time to come.
