Houseplants with orange flowers
Recommendation no. 1 for indoor plants with orange flowers: Clivia miniata
Its orange flower opens in February and blooms until May. Thus, the houseplant from the South African province of Natal is one of the early bloomers in the plant kingdom. With the right care, it can reach a height of 60 to 70 centimeters. The dark green, fleshy leaves form an attractive contrast to the colorful flowers.
The plant likes sunlight, but does not tolerate direct sunlight. If you have the space, you can also put them out on the balcony or terrace in summer.
In summer please keep the soil evenly moist. Less watering can be done in the winter months, but the substrate should not dry out. It is advisable to provide the Clivia miniata with flower fertilizer every two weeks (from March to October).
Important: Always wear gloves when handling the Clivia miniata, as the houseplant is poisonous.

Recommendation no. 2 for indoor plants flowering in orange: Kalanchoe blossfeldiana
The Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is also called Flaming Katy and is one of the most popular flowering indoor plants for the winter. The easy-care plant is also suitable for plant lovers who do not (yet) have the green thumb.
It is often assumed that the Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is an annual. That's not true, because with the right care, it can definitely show its yellow-orange flowers again next year. The indoor plant, which belongs to the succulents (water-storing plants), does not need a lot of water, only when the soil has dried.
If you place it in a bright location (without direct sunlight), then it can develop its small flowers perfectly.
Tip: From autumn, put a cardboard box over the plant every day for 12 to 14 hours. This way the short-day plant can form new fresh buds again and you don't have to throw them away.

Indoor plants with red flowers
Recommendation no. 1 for indoor plants with red flowers: cyclamen
The cyclamen (Cyclame persicum) can bloom in a wide variety of colors, including a bright red tone. Although the houseplant has -violet in its name, it belongs to the primula family of plants.
Originally, it comes from the mountainous regions of south-eastern Europe, Algeria and Tunisia and not, as might be assumed, from the Alps. The cyclamen, which grows up to 30 centimeters high, belongs to the winter bloomers and decorates your home, especially in the dark season.
They feel most comfortable in a bright location between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius. Always fill the low-lime irrigation water into the saucer and avoid waterlogging.

Recommendation No.2 for indoor plants flowering in red: bromeliads
The plant family Bromeliads has about 60 different genera. What appears to be the flower are actually the colorful bracts of the bromeliad family. For healthy growth, the houseplant needs a very bright and sunny location, which also promotes the typical color of the leaves.
You always pour the irrigation water (rainwater) into the middle of the leaves. These are shaped in such a way that they perfectly absorb the water like a funnel. You should provide the bromeliads with a liquid fertilizer about every four weeks.
Indoor plants with white flowers
Recommendation no. 1 for indoor plants flowering in white: Oxalis triangularis
The small flowering plant is offered for sale every year shortly before New Year's Eve. It is not without reason that the Oxalis triangularis is also called lucky clover. Unfortunately, they are often carelessly disposed of afterwards. But the lucky clover doesn't deserve that, because the plant with its triangular violet leaves and the white blossom that stands out is a perfect window decoration for you all year round.
A semi-shady to shady location, for example a west-facing window without direct sunlight, is well suited for your lucky clover. Avoid waterlogging. From March to October you should fertilize the houseplant every two weeks, much less in winter.

Recommendation no. 2 for indoor plants flowering in white: Jasminum
The white flowering jasmine plant not only enchants you with its gorgeous flowers, but also with the dreamy fragrance that it exudes. With its fast-growing shoots, the real jasmine is a climbing plant.
From June to September, the star-shaped, fragrant white jasmine flowers grow from the dark pink colored buds. A bright sunny to partially shaded spot is perfect for the flowering plant.
The plant needs a lot of water, especially during the flower growth phase. Therefore, you may need to water them daily on hot summer days. In addition, you should provide the jasmine plant with liquid fertilizer for flowering plants every one to two weeks from April to September.
Tip: Use trellis so the jasmine plant can grow more stably.

Flowering houseplants for low light
Recommendation no. 1 for indoor plants flowering for low light: single leaf
The Solid Leaf (Spathiphyllum) is native to the tropics of South America. The very easy-care and decorative houseplant likes a semi-shady to shady spot in your home.
It is characterized by a magical white bract with a flower. The soil should always be kept slightly moist. She also likes high humidity, so spray her with a little lime-free water every now and then. Because it is in bloom, it always needs sufficient nutrients, so fertilize it once a week and every 14 days in winter.
Recommendation no. 2 for indoor plants flowering for low light: sensual flower
The flowering ornamental plant has around 140 to 180 different species, some of which are used as houseplants. Normally, the sunflowers (Aeschynanthus) with their red-orange flowers grow in a bright location, but they can also thrive in a darker spot with slightly shaded sun.
In spring and summer, the root ball of the plant should always be slightly moist and not dry out. It can be less in the winter months. Fertilize every two weeks.
Tip: Use room temperature water, not cold.
Recommendation no. 3 for indoor plants flowering for low light: basket maranthe
The Korbmarante comes from the rainforests of South America. This evergreen houseplant tends to be a bit more demanding than other plants. It is characterized by its velvety hairs on the underside of the leaves. These form a strong contrast to the orange flower.
The plant needs a high humidity of 70-80% and a partially shaded location without direct sunlight. You should water the houseplant evenly (rainwater is recommended here), but not too frequently.
