While you could certainly add cut arrangements of flowers to the living room, why not go with something that will thrive and that you can enjoy for years? If this sounds good to you, then today we’d like to help with some of the best flowers for your living room that you can place, care for, and enjoy.
Each of these indoor plants is a beauty, so let’s take a look and you can see what you think!
African Violet – Saintpaulia ionantha
African Violets are stunning, with their vibrant colors and assorted flower shapes, which require very little care on your part and will bloom at various times of the year.
There are literally hundreds of varieties, too, so that you can end up with white-edge flowers, ruffled leaves, and choose combinations for your living room to make everything absolutely perfect.
For watering, check the top two inches of soil to make sure it’s dry and then water away – but be sure to let it dry out between waterings and always water at the base – the leaves can brown if you get water on them. As far as sunlight, medium or bright sunlight is the best, just make sure it’s indirect.
Flamingo Lily – Anthurium andraeanum
Flamingo Lillies add a touch of the exotic to your living room, with heart-shaped flowers that come in a vibrant red, lavender, white, or pink. You can even cut and gift a flower from time to time if you like, as they are quite long-lasting even when cut.
For watering, half a cup of water once a week is just about perfect, and these indoor plants like medium to bright, indirect sunlight.
Peace Lilly – Spathiphyllum wallisii,
The upright, delicate white flowers of the Peace Lily add a touch of class and tropical elegance to your living room or any other place in the house that you’d like to display them. They’re also fairly versatile, thriving in both low and bright, indirect sunlight.
For proper watering, just stick your finger into the top inch of the soil and if it’s dry, then pour water in until you can see it draining and leave it alone until the top dries out again.
Flowering Maple – Abutilon hybridum
Tall and lovely, the Flowering Maple is a wonderful addition to the living room that will definitely delight you and your guests. The flowers that bloom from it look as if they were made from crepe paper and come in yellow, pink, orange, and red – and with enough light, they’ll bloom well into winter!
Watering them will differ in the warm and cold months. In the summer, make sure that the top inch of soil has dried out before watering, and in the winter you should only water your maple once a month.
These plants will need to be right next to the window, however, as they need full sunlight or full sunlight with partial shade to grow healthy and to thrive.
Some closing words of these lovely indoor plants
Adding flowers to your living room is a piece of cake and these indoor plants can definitely bring the magic home. Whether you feel like stately lilies, crepe-paper=like florets, heart-shaped flowers of assorted colors, or the vibrant hues of violets, whatever you choose will definitely be a winner.
So, pick one, two, or even all of these plants and see what happens – nothing makes living room homey quite like the touch of Mother Nature!
