to enjoy enhanced features like these.
African violets (saintpaulia)
African violets are cheerful, colorful house companions that require little care and yield bountiful flowers for years to come. Thriving in comfortable temperatures, faint sunlight and minimal water, African violets are as low maintenance as they are gorgeous, making these blooms ideal for indoor display. By simply learning the caretaking basics, you can incorporate these exotic blossoms into your own home.
Tip: Before feeding your African violets a general liquid fertilizer, allow the solution to sit overnight, as the plants do not respond well to chlorinated drinking water.
Orchids (phalaenopsis orchids)
The phalaenopsis orchid is another beautiful and easy-to-grow houseplant that enjoys much the same conditions we do, requiring little maintenance and blooming for long periods of time. From bright white to lush fuchsia, this flower features an elegant, askew silhouette that can stand on its own as a striking but minimalist décor piece.
Tip: In the winter season, lower humidity in your home will require you to water more frequently.
With African violets and phalaenopsis orchids, you get the unusual beauty of an exotic flower and the low maintenance of an everyday houseplant. Choose them as a special expression of your love, or as a simple way to help your home blossom.
