Try African Violets
African violets are easy to grow, and satisfying because they are so free-flowering. They don't need any special lighting -- a little filtered early morning light is sufficient. A few tips:
  • Use small pots -- they flower best when they are slightly root bound.
  • Set them in a saucer filled with pebbles and water for humidity. The water shouldn't actually touch the bottom of the plants. Don't mist the plants -- this causes unsightly leaf spots that are an entry point for disease.
  • Use a special African violet potting soil and feed with African violet food or an acid plant food.
  • Water from the bottom to avoid water spots on the leaves.
