What’s An Easy Care Flowering Houseplant?

My wife loves plants but she seems to kill quite a few. I want to get her a flowering plant for her birthday that blooms a lot and is good for beginners. Any suggestions gratefullt accepted.

Hi Gene,

My two favorite flowering houseplants which I think are very easy to care for are a lipstick plant and a goldfish plant. Hoya plants and hindu ropes plants are easy to care for also, but don’t seem to bloom as often or as profusely as the lipstick and goldfish plants. Here are pictures of all four of these plants and links to where you can read about them in the Popular Houseplant section of the website.
