Flowering Facts: Anthuriums

Anthurium

  • Anthurium cut stems are available to purchase all year round and have a vase life of 14-28 days.
  • They should be stored in cool temperatures, but not below 45°F.
  • Re-cut the stems about ½ inch every five days.
  • Anthuriums come in shades of red, burgundy, white, pink, orange, green, brown and variegated.
  • The potting soil preferred by Anthuriums is one that retains moisture but is also well draining.
  • The plant needs to stay moist at all times but should not be water-logged. The soil can either be watered thoroughly and then allowed to slightly dry before re-watering or the plant can be watered every two to three days with a small amount of water.
  • Anthuriums need moderate warmth with their environment.  They do best at   60-90°F. Temperatures above 90°F can cause loss of blooms, drying of foliage and fading of the plant.
  • Anthuriums needs plenty of bright indirect sunlight throughout the year. Keep the plant at least five feet from windows to prevent burning or overheating especially during the summer months.
  • Repotting should be done every two years in the spring.
  • One common problem with Anthuriums is gnats which can be prevented by keeping the plant free of standing water and dead foliage.
  • Keep Anthurium plants away from pets and children as they are considered toxic if consumed.

New Item at Field of Flowers!!!

Dog Tail Cactushttp://www.floriexpo.com/

Field of Flowers will have a new arrival at the Davie, Boca Raton & Miami Flower Markets next week! This unique looking high style plant is known as a “Dog Tail Cactus.” This will be sold as an 8” hanging planter starting at only $17.50.

Below are some basic care instructions…

Cacti are relatively easy to grow. Most will tolerate neglect but thrive when given good care. These plants are well-adapted to the dry conditions found in the home. Holiday cacti and other rain forest cacti need substantially more water than desert cacti, but should never be waterlogged. Never let them dry out completely during the spring and summer months. They prefer at least 50 percent humidity, but will tolerate less. Misting may be beneficial in the home. Plants should receive balanced fertilizer once a month from spring to fall. It is always better to use too little fertilizer than too much. These cacti need bright but filtered light. They may sunburn if in direct sun. Rain forest type cacti require more organic matter in their soil mix than do desert type cacti. A good soil mix consists of two parts peat moss, one part garden soil and one part sand. Good drainage is essential. Even though tropical forest cacti can withstand temperatures outside near freezing it is better to keep plants above 40 F. In the home, plant diseases are rarely a problem. Too much water plus insects and mites are the main problems. Root and stem rots usually result from a soil mix that does not drain quickly or overly frequent watering.

Flowering Facts: Orchid Plants

orchid vase• One of our more popular Orchid arrangements is the Orchid plant in glass vase. This design is beautiful to look at, but it will not last forever.
• While the Orchid is in the vase, and still in bloom, you should mist the plant once a week.
• Once the blooms are gone you must remove the plant from the vase in order for it to bloom again.
• These Orchids should not be repotted as they do not need soil to grow. Also, repotting them will cause for water to accumulate which can kill the plant.
• Once the plant is removed from the vase you need to attach it to a tree with a large canopy that can provide shade and block any direct sunlight.
• The Orchid should be kept in warm and humid temperatures.
• You can then water the plant every two weeks. However, Orchids do well over long periods of time without watering.

Happy Father’s Day!

Father's DayFather’s day is a time we have to honor our fathers but better yet it is a day to enjoy spending time with our Dads and appreciate everything they’ve done for us. What a father really wants is to have healthy, happy and successful kids. And, he just wants to spend some time with you on this special day. Today life is so busy at times for both fathers and kids… so taking the time to cherish the day with him is really all he wants.

Whether biological, adopted or informally, if they are a father figure to you, give him some recognition today and don’t hesitate to call him “Dad.”

If you have a Dad that’s interested in gardening get him a little plant so that when it can be re-potted you both can share that planting time together and watch it grow!

Flowering Facts: Bromeliads

  • BromeliadInflorescences (the flowering parts of a plant) may arise from the “cup” or be born within the “cup.” The “cup” or the “vase” is formed in the center of many bromeliads by overlapping leaves and is a holding tank or reservoir for water.
  • Bromeliads can be used in the landscape in frost-free areas of the state or grown in containers that can be moved indoors in areas where freezes occur.
  • The majority of bromeliads thrive outdoors in Florida’s high summer temperatures, even in excess of 100°F. In a home, bromeliads do best at 70-75°F during the day and between 60 and 65°F at night.
  • In south Florida, bromeliads can be grown outdoors unprotected during most winters.
  • In a home, a window with a southern, eastern or western exposure is satisfactory for bromeliad growth, but most species must not be exposed to direct sunlight.
  • A yellowish or pale green plant may indicate too much light and a darker green plant may indicate not enough light.
  • Bromeliads are extremely tolerant of low-moisture conditions and will survive prolonged periods of drought.
  • Bromeliads grown in a potting mix or in the landscape should be watered when the soil surface feels dry.
  • Plants grown in pots should be watered thoroughly, until water runs out of the bottom of the pot and then not watered again until the surface feels dry. Watering thoroughly once a week is usually sufficient.
