Indoor Tropical Plants
The change in seasons doesn’t mean that you have to give up gardening. There are lots of options for gardening indoors! You can even stretch your ‘garden’ palette by trying tropicals inside during these winter months! Alani joined us at the Division Street Portland Nursery to learn about all the different types of tropicals that you can choose from.

We first started with citrus. You can grow lots of different types of citrus indoors including one of the most popular varieties, the Meyer Improved Lemon, which can fruit many times during the year. There is also the Kaffir Lime and the Kumquat which make wonderful indoor plants. One thing about citrus, it can lose some of its leaves during the change of seasons.
Some other fruiting plants include the Barbados cherry and the Lychee plant. One of the most interesting plants is the Miracle plant. If you eat the fruit of this plant everything you eat for about an hour after will taste sweet. We then moved to the anthurium which is one the plants that we typically call ‘tropical’. The flowers last for a long time and almost look like they are made of plastic. Some other tropical flowers include orchids, Christmas cactus and the Bougainvillea.
