  • Flamingo plant flower dying?
    Hi, I recently purchased this flamingo plant a week ago (Still new on plant caring) it was fine until I got back from being away this weekend and I notice this flower yellow and drying... is that normal or am I doing something wrong? Thanks :(

      Paris Lalicata Hi Jasmine! Blooms don't last forever so there's a chance this one has had it's time and is becoming spent now. Alternatively, what makes flowers get spent faster is warmer temperatures, especially if there's a radiator nearby. If you believe that to be the case then I'd move the plant into a cooler location where it can still get plenty of light to avoid this!

    Hi, my calathea leaves have bubbles on them and they are curling ..? Does it mean it’s under watered Bc I’ve been watering once a week and misting. Is this saveable?

      Paris Lalicata Hi Jasmine! The bubbles on the top side of the foliage appears to be water soaked lesions. This happens when water droplets land on the foliage and don't have the right conditions in order to evaporate, therefor they soak right into the leaf killing the plant tissue. Although these will remain as scars now, they shouldn't cause the rest of the leaf to decline in any way. To avoid this simply try keeping the leaves dry and avoid splashing water onto the leaves! Humidity can be boosted by placing the planter on a wet pebble tray, using a humidifier, or grouping your plants together as this will create a micro-climate and the plants will supply humidity for one another together as they transpire water from the leaves.
