Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “The earth laughs in flowers” and it can’t get any truer than that. Indoor flowering plants are a perfect blend of beauty with function, one of nature’s true masterstrokes. While they serve their own, very important, function in nature from the point of view of reproduction, our affinity and attraction to flower plants for homes cannot be overlooked.
Our hunter-gatherer ancestors noticed that flowering plants gave fruits that could be eaten. This led them to believe that flowers signalled an anticipated harvest and made flowers instantly attractive to them and spoke to them on the level of survival, an instinct that we seem to have inherited. Many modern cultures consider flowering plants to be attractive and it is known that scholars have been fascinated with flowers for millennia, either for their beauty or their function.
With the boom in the number of people involved in home gardening in the past decade, the foliage plants have ruled the plant world, while the flowering plant has trailed behind slightly. This trend can also be due to the fact that we city dwellers have very little outside space for flower beds or gardens. This is where we step in, to give you a comprehensive list of the best indoor flowering plants for Indian homes.

Before diving into the list of flower plants for homes and their specific characteristics, let’s take a look at the general care for flowering plants.
Flowering plants require comparatively more sunlight than their counterparts. While there are both sun and shade loving flowering plants, the sun loving ones need longer or brighter light than their sun-loving foliage counterparts and so on.
Since, the plants need more light, it directly translates to the fact that they need more water too. More light means a higher rate of photosynthesis and evaporation, which increases the frequency of watering, especially in the flowering season.
Once the flower has withered away on the stem (if you have not cut the flowers for use), always prune away the spent flower to the next leaf node (deadheading). This boosts both branching and flowering.
Always fertilise your flowering plants with a well-balanced fertiliser like the Ugaoo Plant Tonic for healthy blooms through the season. Fertilise before the flowering season starts and through it every 2 to 3 weeks but avoid fertilising as frequently in the dormant season.
