Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

💡 FAQs

🐶 🐈 👶 Toxicity

Flamingo Flower is not safe to consume. If you, a family member, or a pet has ingested any amount of plant material contact Poison Control, US (800) 222-1222, or your veterinarian. If you have children, cats, or dogs in the home, we suggest keeping this plant out of reach.


💨 Humidity

Flamingo Flower prefers dry environments. Providing extra humidity or misting your plant allows water to linger on leaves, which can create the perfect environment for harmful types of fungi.


🪴 Soil

Flamingo Flower is very sensitive to dry soil, so choose a potting soil that retains moisture. A good soil will still drain well and contain lots of organic matter such as coco coir or sphagnum moss.


💩 Fertilizer

Flamingo Flower is a fast growing plant and may deplete the nutrients in its soil over time. Replenish them with a gentle organic fertilizer or compost every 1-2 months depending on your location and season. Fertilize more often during the growing season and in warmer and brighter climates.


❄️ Dormancy

It’s common for Flamingo Flower to go dormant in the wintertime and you may notice their growth slow down. Waterings should be spaced out more during this time.


🌎 Native Region

Flamingo Flower is native to the Americas.

🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

I bought this plant in a supermarket when I didn’t know anything about blooming hormones. For the first couple months, the plant was pretty (with 6 flowers, in retrospect it was absolutely from the hormones) but not growing at all. At some point in winter I just said “to hell with it” and cut all the flowers. The result was instantaneous. 3 days later I already had new growth. Now the plant doubled in size this growing season and gave 3 natural flowers, that were even bigger than the hormone ones.
