|What are the prettiest tropical plants that have flowers and green foliage that can live inside in the winter and outside in the summer months|

|I really doubt that all of us could agree on what is prettiest. Visit a greenhouse, look at books, get on-line and look at pictures. There are many to chose from. Sounds like you are new to this hobby. Perhaps a better question might be: What are the easiest plants to care for? Gene|

I vote for Anthurium. They bloom constantly, don't get huge and care is easy: a sunny spot and sitting in a saucer of water. In summer, outside under the trees sitting in their saucer of water. Its impossible to over water an Anthurium. Fertilizer once in a while.

|A Christmas Cactus is actually a tropical plant. I keep mine in my office all winter, then outside the rest of the year. To get it to bloom, water it often in the winter, with a light fertilizer and only medium light. Then put it in direct sunlight with very little water and no more fertilizer.
