How to Care for Flowering Houseplants

Most flowering houseplants require direct or bright, indirect light at levels well above those required for most foliage plants. Many have a limited season of bloom and often need a rest period before re-blooming. Flowering houseplants benefit from moderate fertilization and high humidity. For long-term success of flowering houseplants, supplemental light can be used if sufficient natural light is not available.
