Can I Grow Anemone Indoors?

Q: Can I grow anemone in containers as indoor plants?

Wider from England

A: Wider,

Anemone bulbs are a great choice for forcing indoors. Although I've never tried it, some gardeners have also had marginal success keeping them as houseplants. To grow them successfully as houseplants they will require the proper light, humidity and at least a brief period of rest.


To force Anemone bulbs indoors, soak them in water for a couple of hours before planting them to get them off to a faster start. Leave them in just long enough so that you can make a dent in the skin of the bulb with your fingernail. Plant the bulbs in a well-drained soil mixture, leaving their tips exposed. Anemone bulbs don't need pre-chilling to flower, but many people think they grow more vigorously if after you plant them, you cover them and chill them for 6 weeks (at around 41ºF). To flower best they need bright light, a cool location and consistently moist (not wet) soil.
