Interior Window Box and Tips For Planting Ranunculus

Before and After: Simple Spring Changes

Last year, I decided to install a "window box" on the inside of my bedroom window. In part, I did it because the outside view is completely saturated in plant life, and wrestling exterior window space away from the bougainvillea is a thorny proposition. I also like to take risks with some quirky interior accents, especially if they can be changed out fairly easily. For the past year, these Aucuba plants enjoyed the sunny window spot. I decided that I wanted to make a Spring change, though.


To see my change,

.

I transplanted the Aucubas to some larger containers (they needed it!) and replaced them with these cheerful ranunculus flowers. I don't plan on leaving the flowers there for much longer than a month, since I'll soon put them in a pot in my garden. For now though, they should do well. If you want to try some ranunculus flowers inside, keep in mind that they prefer nighttime temperatures in the 40s and 50s, and daytime temperatures of 60 to 65 degrees. They need bright light, but hot, direct sun should be avoided. Good luck!

Lovely idea, and I really love ranunculus! (Haven't had any luck with them though, I think it gets too hot too fast here.) I love those planters, where do they come from? I do something along the same lines -- I have vintage ceramic planters that are rectangular and look just like smaller versions of window boxes. They fit perfectly on the windowsill, so I try to fill them with cheerful plants in the spring, and scatter them around the house.
