Flowering succulents can offer a unique and eye-catching appearance to your indoor garden. Many of them can bloom during their life indoors, depending on sun exposure and the care offered by their owners.

Allowing indoor gardeners to stagger bloom times, different varieties often flower in different seasons. This provides indoor gardeners with the ability to have consistently blooming succulents if they own multiple plants! Most succulents are perennials, though there are some that are treated as annuals and biennials. Usually, succulents must live in hot, sunny environments year-round.

Due to their hardy nature and similar to other popular houseplants, most flowering succulents originate from hardiness zones 9-12. However, indoor succulents can thrive every season if you meet their basic needs! So without further ado, here are 27 of our favorite flowering succulents for indoor gardens.

Aeonium

Aeonium With Yellow Flowers
Aeoniums are sun-loving, and variegated species and varieties especially need bright lighting.
Scientific Name: Aeonium spp.
  • Plant Type: Perennial succulent
  • Plant Size: 2-60 inches, depending on the variety
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Full sun to part shade

Aeonium is a genus that includes over 35 succulent plant species with distinctive waxy and glossy rosettes. Their pretty rosettes may be a solid color or variegated in green, red, white, and yellow. They produce clusters of small star-like flowers that emerge from the rosette centers.

These are relatively slow-growing plants and may take up to five years before they produce the little bunches of flowers. Most Aeoniums are monocarpic, which means the mother plant will die once she flowers. Luckily, the mother plant will produce plenty of shoots that will live on once she blooms and dies.

Baby Toes

Baby Toes Plant With Pink Flower
Baby Toes is distinguished by its endurance, drought resistance, and rapid adaptation to new conditions.
Scientific Name: Fenestraria rhopalophylla
  • Plant Type: Perennial succulent
  • Plant Size: 3 inches tall
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Full sun

These desert-native perennials are hardy in USDA zones 10-11 and require hot, dry climates. As their common name suggests, this clump-forming succulent looks like a collection of adorable baby toes.

Baby toes bloom in late summer to fall with daisy-like flowers in various shades, including white, purple, and yellow. This species is exceptionally drought-tolerant, and frequent watering is more harmful than good. Soaking and drying is the best method.

Allow Fenestraria rhopalophylla to dry out between waterings, then give it a good bath every 1-2 weeks. You’ll only need to water them every 2-4 weeks during summer when they’re dormant.

  • Plant Size: Up to 3 feet tall
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Partial sun to full sun

Also called Rosary Vine or Buttons on a String, Baby’s Necklace is a perennial evergreen many use as ornaments. These drought-tolerant plants can grow in hardiness zones above ten or indoors as houseplants and can’t tolerate frost.

Baby’s Necklace features thin stems with tiny, thick oval-shaped leaves. The foliage is green, though sometimes it will have red triangle-shaped edges. Their leaves grow in groups of four to form a rosette neck shape. As the rosettes grow, they create a necklace-like appearance.

This succulent has pink or white star-shaped flowers that form clusters on the top of the plant. Like most succulents, they don’t need frequent watering and will require more water during the hotter months.

Baseball Plant

Baseball Plant With Tiny Flowers
Baseball Plant is a small succulent plant that looks like a cactus.
Scientific Name: Euphorbia obesa
  • Plant Type: Perennial succulent
  • Plant Size: 7-8 inches tall and up to 4 inches wide
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Bright, direct light (can tolerate some shade)

Baseball Plants love warm temperatures, though they can handle a bit of cool air; most household temperatures are perfectly fine. However, avoid placing this succulent in spaces that get cold drafts. Otherwise, it may inhibit their growth.

Since its discovery in the late 1800s, Euphorbia obesa has grown in popularity for its low-maintenance nature and distinctive look. They’re endangered in their native habitat, though you can find them in most nurseries in garden centers.

National and international legislation prohibits harvesting wild Euphorbia obesa to protect the remaining native populations. These unique succulents have a bulbous shape with v-like marks. To further keep up with their baseball appearance, they have seam-like ridges that look like stitching.

Euphorbia obesa have either female or male yellow flowers that have a similar appearance.

Scientific Name: Kalanchoe luciae
  • Plant Type: Perennial succulent
  • Plant Size: Up to two feet
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Full to partial sun

Flapjack Succulents, also referred to as Paddle Plants, have a paddle-like leaf shape that grows in clusters of rosettes. This striking species thrives on neglect. However, it needs plenty of warm temperatures and should be in warm areas of your home.

The common name, Flapjack, shares the same term with a lesser-known species, Kalanchoe thyrsiflora. Both have paddle-shaped leaves and have similar needs. The best way to differentiate the two is by looking at their flowers.

Kalanchoe luciae produces white flowers with a yellow tinge in their second year, whereas Kalanchoe thyrsiflora has a darker shade of yellow.

They have pretty yellow flowers that are oval-shaped with a pointed top. Each bloom has four petals that grow with the spoon-shaped leaves.

Although the flowers are an exciting aspect of ×Graptosedum ‘Francesco Baldi,’ the leaves are the show’s real stars. Francesco Baldi features elliptic-shaped green leaves with reddish-purple edges. They have a pointed tip and are concave towards the back.

Although they are usually green, the leaves can change colors when stressed. This succulent needs plenty of light, so consider investing in artificial lighting if your home doesn’t receive enough sun.

Ghost Plant

Ghost Plant With Small Flowers
Ghost Plants do well in both light shade and full sun.
Scientific Name: Graptopetalum paraguayense
  • Plant Type: Perennial succulent
  • Plant Size: 6-12 inches tall and 2-3 feet wide (depending on variety)
  • Watering Needs: When the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry
  • Sun Exposure: Full to partial sun

Ghost Plants are nothing to fear, though their leaves have a powder-like coating, called pruinose, giving a ghastly appearance. They features white-gray pointed leaves that form trailing rosettes.

In addition to its beautiful blooms, the ghost plant is a succulent that can take on shades of pink, which is one of the more sought after succulent colors. Each rosette is about four inches wide and may change hues depending on the sun they receive.

Indoor Ghost Plants can bloom sporadically, featuring yellow star-shaped flowers. This is a slow-growing species, only gaining a couple of inches each year. However, with adequate conditions, they can live for decades. They require good drainage and abundant sunlight to thrive and produce new offshoots for you to propagate.

The mother hen rosette produces small rosette offsets referred to as “chicks.” They feature a thick flower stalk with pink or red star-shaped flowers at the top. Hens and Chicks are more known for their foliage, though they flower in the summer.

These low-maintenance plants thrive on neglect. So while you won’t need to prune them, you should remove the old hens once they flower. It’s also worth noting that Hens and Chicks are a succulent that can tolerate low light conditions, although this may impact their blooms.

Because of their attractive heart-like foliage, they are popular Valentine’s Day gifts. Not only are they pretty additions to indoor gardens, but they are easy to grow.

Like most succulents, they don’t need a lot of water and require well-draining soil. These are slow-growing perennials, so don’t be alarmed if it seems like you haven’t seen a new leaf in a while.

As if the scion isn’t pretty enough, this plant produces small reddish pink or white flowers.

The scion is more shade-tolerant, while the green rootstock loves plenty of light, so bright indirect light is a happy medium.

These easy-to-grow plants also produce yellow flowers when they receive proper care. Place your String of Pickles in an area with plenty of sunlight and water it every couple of weeks, and it will thrive.

Tiger jaws are easy to care for succulent plants with low rosettes of fleshy, triangle-shaped leaves edged with spiny “teeth.”

Also referred to as “Shark Jaws,” this plant gets its name from its spiky appearance. The “teeth” are adaptations that allow the plant to redirect dew or rainwater to its base. Though they may look painful to touch, they are delicate and flexible.

Mature plants can live for decades and produce plenty of offsets to continue even after the mother plant dies. Tiger jaws produce vibrant yellow flowers with long, arching tiny petals. For best flowering results, use a grow light.

Zebra Plant

  • Watering Needs: Every 7-10 days in the summer; every 10-14 days during winter

Haworthiopsis attenuata grows in low clumps of rosettes with 3-5 inch-long leaves. It makes an excellent addition for hanging mini glass terrariums or small containers with light green reindeer lichen.

Zebra Plants produce bell-shaped lavender blooms in the spring and summer. To encourage more flowers, make sure they get plenty of sunlight.

Final Thoughts

Flowering succulents offer a broad range of shapes and colors to add a dazzling element to your indoor garden. Most succulents are native to hot, sunny regions with infrequent watering and require a similar environment to thrive. Additionally, you’ll need plenty of light for most of the above plants to bloom.
