No more boring green fronds and ferns. We show that indoor plants can bloom just as well as the plants outside.

Fortunately, there are also great flowering plants for the apartment: With their bright colors, they quickly become the stars of indoor plants and spice up the overall picture. Find out which ten flowering houseplants you shouldn't miss here.


Farewell to boring green, hello glowing blooms - with these ten blooming houseplants you are guaranteed to transform your home into a blooming paradise.

10. Cyclamen

Small but mighty: the cyclamen (Cyclamen persicum) is not one of the largest flowering houseplants, but easily eliminates this disadvantage with its interestingly shaped flowers. For a long time the classic was considered old-fashioned, but recently the cyclamen has blossomed into an absolute fashion plant. With its bright flowers and the variety of cyclamen species, the plant offers countless possibilities for decoration and works just as well as a solitaire on the coffee table as in combination with other plants on the windowsill. In addition, the cyclamen is one of the few shade-loving houseplants, which is why it is also perfect for making dark rooms shine.

9. Flamingo flower

Actually, the flowers of the flamingo flower (Anthurium andreanum) anything but spectacular: the yellow cobs, which the plant shows all year round, are actually rather inconspicuous. In return, the houseplant scores with its distinctive red or white bracts, which many mistakenly mistake for flowers. These impress with their bright colors and their leathery appearance. In addition, the flamingo flower is also very robust and one of the easiest indoor plants to care for.

8. Single sheet

The one-sheet (Spathiphyllum) convinces with its imposing, white bracts, which are often mistaken for flowers. But it is precisely this contrast between the white bracts and the green foliage of the plant that makes this houseplant one of the most stylish plants of all. In addition, the sheet is a real boon in a stuffy room climate: The decorative roommate is one of the air-purifying plants and is therefore particularly suitable when you want to declare war on poor indoor air.

7. Flaming Kathchen

Friendly and colorful - those are probably the two words that Flammende Käthchen (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana) best describe. From pure white to bright yellow to rich violet, you can find almost every color variant in the enormous variety of the Flaming Käthchen. The houseplant is tireless and bears a multitude of small flowers all year round. But Flammende Käthchen is still no diva: The houseplant is undemanding and easy to care for, even for beginners.

6. Hibiscus

Who doesn't want a relaxed holiday atmosphere in their own apartment? The hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) enriches every room with its exciting South Sea flair. The houseplant, which is even the national flower in Hawaii, attracts everyone's attention with its radiantly large flowers and is always the focal point of every room. Although the hibiscus is somewhat more demanding in terms of care and has a high water and nutrient requirement, it rewards us with its magical blossoms from April to October.

5. Amaryllis

Flowers are simply the most beautiful thing about every plant - how good that the amaryllis (Hippeastrum) are not stingy with their blossoms. In fact, the plant, also known as the knight's star, shines with a spectacular single flower that can hardly be surpassed in size. With their brilliant white, delicate pink or intense red, the amaryllis quickly becomes a fascinating eye-catcher. A particularly nice feature of her: The amaryllis blooms from October to March, i.e. at a time when the garden usually looks rather dreary, and thus also ensures a real feast for the eyes in winter.

4. Azalea

The rhododendron (rhododendron) is particularly popular with gardeners because of its great flowers. Unfortunately, the garden plant is not suitable for the house. On the other hand, it looks better with its relative, the azalea (Rhododendron simsii) from: The Asian beauty also presents itself in the house with an impressive blaze of colors and gives us its great flowers from September to April. The azalea resembles the rhododendron not only in its appearance, but also in its care - so the beautiful houseplant always needs an acidic plant substrate and should mainly be watered with lime-free water.

3. Bromeliad

A true exotic on the windowsill is the bromeliad (Bromelia). Especially its impressive inflorescence, which is characterized by intensely colored bracts, makes the houseplant a unique eye-catcher, which gives every room a tropical flair. The variety of colors and gradients within the leaves and flowers ensure that the bromeliad becomes a real eye-catcher. In fact, the plant is not as maintenance-intensive as one would assume with such an exotic plant: If you give the bromeliad a warm, bright location and enough water, the flowering houseplant is surprisingly easy to care for.

2. Begonia

What use are beautiful flowers if they have faded after just a few days? Fortunately, the begonia brags (Begonia elatior) not only with its great flowers, but also impresses with its seemingly immeasurable stamina: from May to October, the houseplant bears an impressive splendor of flowers in bright colors. At the same time, the begonia is considered to be extremely easy to care for and undemanding - so it's no wonder that it is one of the most popular indoor plants ever.

1. Orchid

It may be a diva, but its flowers are hard to beat: the orchid (Orchidaceae) impresses again and again with its unique floral decoration. With its filigree growth and exotic flair, the orchid really beautifies any room. But the variety of orchid species also makes this genus so attractive, because it almost invites you to collect. With this beauty and elegance, the orchid is immediately forgiven for being a little more demanding in its care.
