Lately, I have had fall and winter on the brain.
Im more than ready for some cooler temperatures.
This summer hadn't really been all that bad except for the latter part.
It seems to rain everyday and I have been forced to be inside more than I like.
This afternoon I was in the yard watering plants and doing a bit of weeding.
With the hopes for cooler weather I couldn't help but think of my favorite indoor plants and what joy they bring when they bloom.
Im sharing today my favorite houseplants that bloom through the winter months.
African Violets (botanically known as Saintpaulia ionantha) are my favorite of any houseplant. In my opinion, they are the easiest plant to keep alive.
They are so easy to care for and are ever rewarding if you take care of them properly. They bloom all year.
There are many different varieties and forms, some have variegated foliage, ruffled or even white-edged blooms.
They love warm conditions and filtered sunlight.
Avoid getting water on the leaves as this will cause them to turn brown. (cold water causes brown spots also)
*If you are a green thumb, you can also snap a leaf off of the violet and place in some moist soil to take root.
