How to grow Minecraft flowers?

Unlike sugar cane, trees and other crops, you couldn’t cultivate flowers through normal ways and should use specific methods. Although, dirt and grass could be used to plant flowers on.

Also, you should give flowers special treatments so that they don’t die. Most importantly is lighting, which should be done through artificial light (level 8 or above) or sunlight.

But growing flowers isn’t a difficult task at all. All you have to do is using a grass block (or a dirt one) and use bonemeal on it. But, for tall flowers, such as sunflower or rose bush, the bone meal should be used directly to the flowers which are two blocks.
