Top 4 Outdoor Plants to Grow as Houseplants

by Ronald Bixby 08/08/2022

If you've dreamt of having a lush and colorful garden but don't have the space or climate to support it, consider keeping houseplants instead. There are many varieties of outdoor plants you can grow inside your home as houseplants if you need or prefer. Here are some of the top garden favorites to grow indoors, no matter where you live:

Fuchsia

Fuchsia are often found cascading from hanging baskets outdoors. While they make wonderful decorative plants outside, they can also thrive indoors if you give them enough sun. During the growing season, try to provide your potted fuchsia at least six hours of sun per day. In the winter, the plant will go dormant and prefer a shadier spot until it's ready to bloom again.

Geranium

Geraniums are a garden favorite across many climates. They're hardy and simple to care for indoors as well. The best thing about growing geraniums as a houseplant is its ease of bloom throughout the winter in a sunny window. Allow geraniums to dry out between waterings and trim faded blooms to promote new growth.

Caladium

Caladium have vibrant, varied foliage and can thrive as houseplants in any climate. As long as you can keep their indoor environment above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and provide a bit of humidity, you can enjoy their dramatic and multicolored leaves through most of the year. Even when grown indoors, caladium goes dormant in the winter but will bounce back when the season changes.

Coleus

Coleus is another plant appreciated for its colorful foliage rather than blooms. It does very well indoors and outdoors and only requires medium amounts of sunlight to survive. The myriad color combinations give you the opportunity to brighten up your home with these easy-growing plants as long as you keep their soil evenly moist.

Hi, I'm Ronald Bixby and I'd love to assist you. Honor, Respect, and Integrity...These are qualities that were instilled in a small town in upstate NY and reaffirmed in the US Navy. I was raised in a town called Horseheads. After graduating High school, I decided to see the world and I went into the Navy. Although I wanted to see the world, I ended up joining the submarine force and unfortunately, they don't have too many windows on subs! After getting out of the Navy, I found myself with an opportunity to get into the restaurant business and that's where I spent the next 30 years. I am blessed with an amazing wife, who is my rock, 4 beautiful daughters, and a son... Parenthood has a way of keeping you on your toes! However, thinking that I was missing something, I decided to make a change and started exploring the Real Estate business, and the more I looked into it, the more I knew this was the right profession for me. I like to help people and assisting a family buy or sell a home is a fantastic opportunity to do just that. If I can make someone half as happy as I am...it's a great day. Let me help you be happy.
