Because of its beautiful red and green coloring, the Poinsettia is a very popular at Christmas, which is why is it sometimes also known as the "Christmas Flower." But did you know the red parts are not actually part of the flower? They're bracts -- a type of leaf that surrounds a flower -- that turns red in winter. They can be quite tricky to grow outside their native habitat. Flower Power can help you keep your poinsettia happy year-round!
Did you know that the Thanksgiving Cactus actually comes from a rain forest? It is an epiphyte that grows in the tree branches well above the jungle floor. It's a gorgeous indoor plant but can be fickle when it comes to blooming. With the right lightening and moisture, they'll practically explode with blooms. They are a long lasting plants that can easily span several generations. Flower Power can help you keep these little guys happy and blooming year after year!
Another great houseplant is the Australian Fan Palm, which is so named because it's native to the forests along the coasts of Australia, and its fan-shaped leaves. The trunks are covered with the remnants of dead leaves which leave behind prickly fibers. Like most tropical plants, it has its own preferred levels of light, humidity, and fertilization for optimal growth. But with the Parrot Flower Power, even a novice gardener can keep it alive and thriving!
Dracaena fragrans is a fantastic indoor plant that responds well to low light conditions. 'Massangeana' (aka corn plant) stands out as the favorite indoor plant due to its graceful fountain shape and distinctive yellow band that streaks through the middle of each broad, strappy, dark green leaf. It has its own preferred levels of light, humidity, and fertilization for optimal growth. But with the Parrot Flower Power, even a newbie can keep it alive and thriving!
