Indoor Window Plants for Fall
White Cupid’s Dart
Also known as the Love Plant, these daisy-like plants bloom in the fall and grow anywhere from 18 to 28 inches tall. These flowers grow best directly in the sun, making them perfect for your windowsill. Cut properly, the purple center is a great pop of color for your windowsill.
Lilies bloom in fall and need a dormant period, but they thrive in a sunnier, moist environment. They come in a variety of colors, including seasonal orange and yellow. They also make wonderful cut flowers, so they’re perfect for a window-side vase.
Cacti are slow-growing plants, don’t require a lot of attention and can live a long time as long as they remain indoors. If they are planted in porous terracotta containers with gritty compost and are provided with adequate drainage, you can expect the cacti to last a long time.
These vibrant peppers are sure to add color to your windowsill. While this is actually a pepper plant, the Ornamental Pepper grows fairly easily as long as it’s exposed to plenty of sunlight and you let the soil dry between watering. While they are safe to eat, they are best enjoyed for their looks.
Spinach is a fall crop, so it grows slowly due to its natural adaption to the decrease in sunlight. A slow-growing plant is easier to maintain indoors, so spinach is a great addition to the windowsill.
Echeverias have small, shallow root systems and require low maintenance, making them the perfect plant for your windowsill. The succulents should be soaked thoroughly when water and allowed to completely dry before watering again. Adding some sand and rocks to the soil will help with the drainage and mimic the environment of the plant’s natural habitat.
Also called Cockscombs, these feathery flowers come in a variety of colors making them a great addition to your windowsill. While these flowers love the sun, they also like shade and not too much water. Make sure you put them with plants that require similar conditions.
