|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.
Our destiny in life is to discover our gift. Our purpose in life is to give it away.
