Flamingo Flower plants are durable and fairly easy to grow house plants that will thrive for many years under ideal conditions and can even survive for a year or two in the most adverse situations.
They have large, deep green, lance or heart shaped leaves and produce long lasting, brightly colored, heart shaped flower bracts. Free delivery in Cluj-Napoca and Huedin.

As with most other house plants you will want to replicate their native growing conditions as closely as possible when growing Flamingo Flowers indoors. These are jungle plants that live protected from the sun by a canopy of trees. In the home, Flamingo Flowers should be grown in a draft free spot where they will receive lots of bright, indirect light but NEVER full sun.
They prefer temperatures between 78°-85° during the day, with night temperatures about 10° cooler. Plant growth and flowering will cease at temperatures below 65°. Temperatures above 90° can cause the foliage to scorch and can even be fatal.
Ideally, the humidity should be 80% or higher. Insufficient humidity can cause your Flamingo Flower's foliage to lose its glossy sheen. Humidity can be increased by setting the planter on a tray filled with moistened pebbles or placing moist, fresh sphagnum moss around the plant.
A strategically placed aquarium will help raise the humidity as well.
Regular misting or sponging the leaves off with room temperature water is also very beneficial.
Flamingo Flower plants should be watered regularly and thoroughly, allowing the soil to only dry slightly before watering again. Never allow the planter to set directly in water for more than a few minutes. Over watering can quickly cause the leaves to turn yellow, which if not corrected immediately, will be followed shortly by root rot, which is almost always fatal.
