My wife & I are interested in growing a flowering/fruiting tree in our bedroom, supplementing with a grow light. Do you have any suggestions as to what would grow in the 4-6 foot range in those type of conditions?

and fatsia are houseplants that have the capabilities of growing quite large. These non-blooming plants could be used in conjunction with smaller houseplants that flower such as begonias, azaleas, hibiscus, African violets, or orchids.

You should assess your home conditions, as well as how much attention you are willing to give to a possibly demanding plant. Then check out the local library, a bookstore, the internet, or a nursery to see what is available and what will work for you.

Have fun! Remember if nothing seems to work, you can buy a lovely silk plant for the bedroom and care for your flowering plants in another area of your home.
