Hydrangea

Hydrangea is a plant that really knows how to show off. Big, round clusters of small flowers cover the plant all summer in blue, violet-blue, white, pink or red. It looks stunning on a dining table or anywhere you want to add instant garden ambience.

Hydrangea Care Tips
Height: 2 ft (60 cm) indoors
Light: Provide at least 4 hours of bright, indirect light every day.
Water: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy while plant is growing and flowering. Use lime-free water because lime will make the soil alkaline. Keep soil barely moist in winter.
Humidity: Average room humidity.
Temperature: Cool to average 45-65°F/7-18°C
Soil: Peat-based lime-free soil for blue varieties.
Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a balanced liquid fertilizer (such as 10-10-10) diluted by half. Go easy — too much fertilizer may scorch its leaves.
Propagation: Take 4 inch (10 cm) stem tip cuttings in spring or early summer and root them in moist potting mix.

Tulips
By growing tulips indoors, you’ll bring a bright bouquet of fresh flowers to your home in the middle of winter. Tulips are among the most prized because of their big blooms, traditional tulip shape, and variety of colors available.

Tips for Growing Tulips
Height: 12-24 in (30-60 cm), depending on variety. Some species only reach 6 in (15 cm) tall.
Light: Bright indirect light. Rotate the pot once in a while because growing tulips will tend to lean toward the light source.
Water: Keep soil lightly moist. Growing tulips are thirsty, so it’s a good idea to check the soil often.
Humidity: Average room humidity.
Temperature: Cool 60°F/16°C
Soil: Any good potting mix.
Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
Propagation: Tulip bulbs cannot be forced a second time indoors. They do produce offsets, but they can take a few years to mature
