Plant care and instruction
Give your heliconia bright light and water it regularly, but be careful not to overwater. Let the soil almost dry out between watering, and avoid allowing heliconias to stand in water. Heliconias grow best in temperatures of at least 70 degrees F or higher, and should never be subjected to temps below 50 F.
2.place -Freely draining soils with high organic matter.
4.fertilizer-once a month
6.temperature-70 degrees F or higher
Heliconias are sometimes called “lobster claws” or “parrot flowers” because of their beak-like “bracts” which can be orange, purple, red, yellow, pink, green or a combination of these. … This keeps the flower’s sweet nectar tucked away so that only specialized birds can get to it.
