Indoor spring flowers were introduced into a new generation of gardeners and it proved to be one of the biggest, most effective and fun-filled plant developments of recent times.

Flowering in greenhouses

Until recently, flowering indoors was not considered a respectable pastime because such plants were often too small and delicate to give good performance. However, gardeners have recently discovered that the ideal indoor plant is in fact quite a large one, not a small plant that grows to no more than about one metre, the sort of thing that has a pot of one metre and cannot be displayed in one.

The first flowering plants introduced into greenhouses were rather slow-growing ones and it is a long time since they made much of a real impression. But gradually, the development of the 'easy-grow' market for flowering plants has seen the appearance of a whole host of new and exciting varieties.

In a few short years, plants that are able to flower even after the end of the growing season have become relatively common in greenhouses. The most notable of these is Begonia 'Sunshine Sunset' from Dr. Aichinger which can remain in flower over many months.

The other important trend is the use of high-power lamps. It is now possible to use these to produce flowering, without the need for a lot of heat. The best example of this is Canna 'Sunshine Sunset'. This variety can still give a real performance even with a normal 6kw HPS lamp.

Growing and flowering

In any greenhouse where there is a small amount of natural light, such as in those with high ceilings, flowering will always be rather restricted. Even if a high-power lamp is used, it is often necessary to protect the foliage from being burnt by using shading cloths.

The more high-powered the lamp, the less the need for shading. On the other hand, the amount of light necessary for flowering is much less in the summer months than in the winter. When you calculate this for a normal 6kw HPS bulb, you can see how the amount of light required will reduce when the days get longer. For example, for a single 6kw HPS bulb to flower in February would need around 1.6kW, and in June only 600w.

High-power lamps are often thought of as difficult to grow from seeds because the roots can become very tangled. However, there are a few easy varieties that will flower well even in a relatively short season.

If you have access to a good greenhouse with a good amount of natural light, then it may be possible to get flowering even if your greenhouse is unheated.

Many people enjoy growing cacti for their flower. This is particularly the case with those with a long growing season. This is because the flowering period may be spread out over the winter, when many people experience cold conditions. For example, for a standard cactus you may need an average of 25-30 degrees Celsius for flowering, and for some the amount needed may be as little as 18-19 degrees Celsius. To flower in a cold greenhouse, it is best to protect the plants using heated propagating trays, with a bulb warmer or hotwater bottle. In a greenhouse that is unheated, you may be able to grow your cacti from seed and protect them with an overhead heating mat. Many people like to use a grower’s compost for germinating cacti and other succulents from seed.

How much does it cost to grow a plant?

Costs vary depending on the plant, how large you want to grow it and what you choose to grow it in. Generally the larger you grow a plant the more expensive it will be. However there are times when growing larger plants is the best option to avoid expensive transplanting costs.

If you have a good greenhouse and plenty of space to grow a plant, the costs of a few plants can be covered using money from a regular household budget. Generally speaking, the costs for plants, in addition to the plants themselves, are in the range of $8-10 per plant and you may pay as much as $20 for the cheapest cacti that do not flower well. When choosing plants there is a difference between what the plants you choose grow well in terms of water requirements and temperature and the size and shape you want the plant to grow to be. Generally plants that grow in large containers can be grown to almost any size you wish, but the cost will be higher than if you grow in smaller pots, even if you can only get them to around 10-12cm high. Generally cacti like to be grown to between 15cm and 20cm.

When buying plants you should find out what they grow well in and what size container you should use. Most plants will grow well in a pot of 6-10cm, but if you want to grow larger plants you should use larger pots of 10-12cm. When choosing a cactus you should ask yourself about what it is that you want the cactus to look like, this could be the shape, colour, size and the like.

Growing from seed is the most time and effort consuming form of growing cacti. The most successful method of growing from seed is to choose a specific species, such as the cactus called the Crown of Thorns, which you can read more about on the following page. This method is the most useful for growing plants that are not very easy to grow, and this book can help you choose a good species for your particular needs. For a more detailed guide to growing from seed see “Growing From Seed: A Guide to a Healthy, Stress-Free Cactus Garden” by Richard W. Huxley.

You should also know that some species are not very suitable for being grown from seed. Some species may be prone to root rot. If you are unsure about what to plant then you can always try starting them with seed from someone else. The problem with this method is that not all species will look the same when grown from seed, so some cacti are not suitable for starting with seed, or it may be difficult to tell whether you have started from seed or not. If you want to grow from seed, then this book will tell you everything you need to know, and all the other books in this series will help you identify what you need to plant from seed.

Cacti are generally easier to grow than most flowering plants, which makes them the best flowers to grow indoors, with a few exceptions. There are more plants available to grow from seed than there are cacti, so growing from seed is a great way to grow your own cacti garden. Cacti can take at least 2 years to grow from seed, although some can take several years. The easiest cacti to start from seed are those that are non-woody. It is best to start some species from seed every year and then add to your garden as they grow.

Cacti are easy to grow from seed, but there are a few things you need to know before you start growing from seed.

Cactus from seed

Selecting a location: Cacti need full sunlight and lots of water. They do not like to be cold, so choose a spot that is in a warm sheltered place with lots of light, but no direct sun. Keep your cacti away from areas where they will catch frost or freeze. A shaded patio in the winter months is a good place, but if you live in a coastal or desert region, make sure you choose a spot that is well-drained.
