    It's always so exciting when a house plant blooms. Let's see your pics!

    These are within the past month, except where it says otherwise.
    Some of my snake plants (Sansevieria) are making buds.

    I seem to be collecting Kalanchoes. The ones making buds so far are K. laetivirens:

    Aloe bellatula blooms constantly. My fingers are holding the stem of the previous inflorescence that I'd just trimmed and a new one is forming in the center.

    Its' blooms look like this, a past pic.

    This Callisia stem has formed buds.

    All Peperomias make this funky type of "string" inflorescence. This one is P. verticillatus.

    Kleinia fulgens (AKA Senecio fulgens) has a cute little pom-pom bloom.

    It's so nice to see all your plants looking so healthy and putting on a show for you. There's so many with buds that your home must look lovely when they all burst into bloom.

    TYVM for the encouraging words!

    Graptosedum 'Vera Higgins/Francesco Baldi' is forming an inflorescence. These only have 1 head. Where it looks like a 2nd head is growing in the upper R corner is the inflorescence. It will get much longer & have little yellow flowers soon.

    My first holiday cactus of the year has opened its' blooms (Schlumbergera truncata.)

    This one is a little behind. It was a gift from a neighbor. Looks like it will have white or yellow blooms.

    For some reason yellow flaming Katys (Kalanchoe blossfeldiana) always blooms before the red. Status shots:

    I am always at a loss for words when I see what a successful grower of plants you are.This last bunch are no exception to what you regularly show. I do not think that i know anyone else that has such luck getting indoor plants to bloom. It is just wonder.
    Chapeau.

    Over the years, from its diminutive beginnings this is plant has grown quite large. This will be the second year in eight that it has had a flower. It has experienced a stressful winter. Changes of light, heat and location were not kind and have caused many many segments to fall off. So many that I thought a blossom was out of the question. With other plants blooms are expected and evoke minor disappointment when they are absent. When this plant came to fruition I was excited. Several years later when it first flowered I was ecstatic.:smt026 Then, a year of nothing, a period of growth but no flowers.:( Today at the beginning of it's flowering season a FLOWER BUD!! Sometimes big surprises come in small packages.:):)
