Tropical flowers suitable for every home

Tropical flowers are perfect for brightening up any home. In some cases, they are best enjoyed as cut flowers while others can be grown as indoor plants. Here are some of the best tropical plants and flowers to consider for your home.

African Violet

This plant is fairly easy to grow. It requires a fair amount of indirect sunlight and well-drained soil. One of the main problems with this plant is overwatering. Always check the soil before you water your African Violet.


These beauties enjoy full sun and well-drained soil. They can grow up to three feet in height so make sure that you are prepared to repot them as and when necessary.


Anthuriums are popular tropical flowers in cut flower arrangements as well as potted plants. They will need well-drained soil as well as indirect sunlight. They are bright and beautiful so you can be sure that they will make any room in your home that much more attractive.

Bird of Paradise

When you look at these blooms, you can clearly see where they got their name. They look just like a flying bird! Since the plant can grow up to six feet in height, they are mostly enjoyed as cut flowers. This is because they are too large for most pots and they will not withstand harsh winters.


Many people don’t know that chrysanthemums are indeed tropical flowers! They are available in a wide variety of colours and there are also several types. They enjoy full sun with partial shade during some part of the day. They also need well-drained soil.


As a potted plant, these tropical flowers thrive in partial shade with well-drained soil. They can grow up to five feet in height so, make sure that you have enough space before choosing this plant for your home.


The hibiscus flower is available in several colours and it enjoys full sun with some partial shade. The soil should be kept moist but it should also allow excess water to drain away easily. They can be enjoyed as potted plants or, if you live in a warmer environment, as garden plants.


There are many types of orchids and, as such, there are also several colours from which to choose. The soil required for these plants is a special potting mix. It is, in fact, not soil at all but rather a mixture made to retain moisture while allowing extra water to drain away. They enjoy higher levels of humidity and partial shade. Before investing in an orchid, make sure that you understand its needs since some are a bit more on the fussy side than others.

These are just a few of the top choices in tropical flowers. While some of them may require a bit of extra effort, it will more than pay off during the bloom season! You will adore how they brighten up your room and become an excellent talking point when guests arrive.
