1. Kalanchoe

Kalanchoe is a type of succulent with beautiful bright, long lasting flowers.

The flowers can be yellow, orange, pink, red or white and you can often get a second bloom by cutting back the spent flowers.

Kalanchoes are very easy to care for and they grow well in direct sunlight or partial shade.

2. Bromeliad

Bromeliads are tropical plants that are perfect for humid climates.

If you don’t live in a tropical climate you can use a small humidifier to increase the humidity in your home or place them in the bathroom where the humidity level is a bit higher.

Bromeliads have long lasting flowers that are actually modified leaves called bracts.

They’re low maintenance houseplants, but just remember to keep them away from direct sunlight as it can burn their leaves.

3. Lollipop plant (Pachystachys Lutea)

Lollipop plants, also known as golden shrimp plants, have large cone shaped bracts that are yellow in color.

They can grow 12 to 24 inches (30 to 60 cm) tall indoors and up to 4 feet (120 cm) tall outdoors.

Lollipop plants need bright, indirect light and they should be pruned each year to keep them to a manageable size.

4. Orchid

Orchids are stunning indoor plants with long stalks and multiple flowers that can be yellow, pink, purple or white.

They need some humidity so the bathroom is a great spot for orchids.

If the air in your home is very dry from air conditioning or heating then you may need a humidifier to keep your orchids happy.

There are many different types of cacti with yellow flowers but the most common one is the prickly pear cactus.

Be sure to let the soil dry out before waterings.
