Spring is a time for renewal and new beginnings, marked most notably by new growth on trees and plants. Many people renew their homes this time of year, too, and do a spring cleaning. Placing a few indoor spring plants around your home will help welcome the season and give your home a fresh look and feel. Choose from the most popular indoor spring plants to liven up your home.
Peace lilies are known for the deep green leaves and tall, tubular flowers. The plant is notoriously resilient, and prefers full to partial shade. It is an ideal indoor spring plant for anyone who doesn't know a lot about plants.
Gerbera daisies bloom in the spring, and add a splash of color to any room. Gerbera blooms last several weeks, and can be cut and dried to enjoy the flowers year-round. Gerbera daisy plants prefer indirect or filtered light. NASA studied the gerbera and found that the plant has strong filtering effects that help find "sick building syndrome."
The narcissus paperwhite's bulbs can be forced to bloom indoors. Very shallow containers are adequate, because narcissus bulbs need only 2-3 inches of room for their roots to develop. To make a paperwhite bulb bloom, plant the bulbs with the wide side facing downward. Simply water and place the container in a sunny location. Green leaves will begin to emerge from the bulb with a week or two.
