I thought it might be a nice idea for a thread where we can all show off our house plants that are blooming :)

I'll start, all I have blooming now are a couple of hoyas...

hoya cv. sunrise

This isn't really a bloom and not considered a houseplant by those of us who live in the south because they are usually grown in the landscape, but I grow them in the ground as well as containers.

Caladiums:

Hi Lee Anne! Both of those Hoya's are really pretty but there's just something about that cv. Sunrise that just grabs me! I really like the looks of that one!


Another one not considered a house plant down here but I have it in a container with a dwarf Schefflera.

Pentas lancelota bloom:
