Plants, Bamboo Arrangments, and Hummingbird Feeders

Our Wild Flowers blooming pots are designed to be long lasting.  We choose mostly simple clay pots to insure that your plants are well drained and happy.  We choose very hardy small green and blooming plants that have similar preferences for light and moisture.  The blooming plants are those that will re-bloom again for years to come.  

Cyclamen Planter Care Instructions

This pot is planted with a cyclamen and green plants that like similar growing conditions.  They all like to be moist and have indirect but bright light.  We've added a time release fertilizer that lasts 3 months.  Add water near each of the plants.  We usually do this about twice a week depending on the weather.  you can tell if your planter needs water by sticking your finger into the dirt, the weight of the pot, and whether the clay is warm or cold.  you don't want your planter to go totally dry.  Be sure not to water the cyclamen right in the center as this can cause rot.  Your cyclamen will re-bloom through the year but you will need to remove yellow and dead leaves from time to time.  You will also need to remove the seed pods that develop after the blossom is gone.  These pods are round and if they are left on it will discourage the development of more flower buds.  Please feel free to call us with any questions regarding your new plant.  You can also stop by our shop on the corner of Bond and Minnesota if it is time to add more time release fertilizer and we will provide this for you. 

Kalanchoe Planter Care Instructions

We plant our succulent Kalanchoe with green plants that like similar growing conditions.  They don't like to be too wet and they can take bright light to direct sun.  We've added a time release fertilizer that lasts 3 months.  Add water near each of the plants about once a week depending on the weather.  You can tell if your planter needs water by sticking your finger into the dirt, the weight of the pot, and whether the clay is warm or cold.  You want your planter to go almost totally dry.  Your Kalanchoe will re-bloom throughout the year but you will need to remove yellow and dead leaves from time to time, as well as the flower stalks after the blooms are done.  Cut these back to where they sprouted from the main body of the plant and the plant will send up new ones.  Please feel free to call us with any questions regarding your new plant.  Stop by our shop on the corner of Bond and Minnesota if it is time to add more time release fertilizer and we will provide this for you.

African Violet Planter Care Instructions


We plant our African Violets with green plants that like similar growing conditions.  They all like to be moist and have indirect but not bright light.  A north facing window is ideal for this planter.  Add water near each of the plants.  We usually do this about twice a week depending on the weather.  You can tell if your planter needs water by sticking your finger into the dirt, the weight of the pot, and whether the clay is warm or cold.  You do not want your planter to go totally dry.  Be sure not to water the African violet right in the center as this can cause rot.  Your violet will re-bloom throughout the year but you will need to remove yellow and dead leaves from time to time as well as spent blossoms.  We have added time release fertilizer to the planter that will last 3 months.  Stop by our shop on the corner of Bond and Minnesota if it is time to add more fertilizer and we will provide this for you.

Lucky Bamboo Care
Your Lucky Bamboo is very easy to care for.  It is actually a rooted dracaena stem.  They have been considered auspicious in the Orient for thousands of years.  Make sure there is water in the container.  Every month or so drain the water out and replace with fresh water.  We have a dilute fertilizer that you can purchase here at Wild Flowers.  Do not put your bamboo in any direct or bright light.  It can even thrive with only the light in your home or office.   The main stem of your bamboo won't grow taller but the leaves sprouting from them will.  The curly part is made by rotating the plant so as it follows the light allowing it to make a spiral.  Feel free to call us at Wild Flowers with any questions.
Orchid Care
Orchids look delicate but they are easy to care for.  Native to the Asian tropics they live in the warm bright forest canopies, a climate much like your home.  Keep them in bright but indirect indoor light.  The best temperature range, so that they feel cozy, would be 65 - 80 degrees.  Do not water if potting medium is still wet.  Submerge entire pot in water for 5 minutes, or place 2 to 3 ice cubes top of potting soil when thoroughly dry.  Fertilize with a balanced mix fertilizer every other watering at one half of the normal dose  After the last flower expires, cut the spike above the node from which the 1st flower appeared.  A new spike can branch off within weeks. Alternately, remove the flower spike entirely to allow the plant to recover and form a new spike in 3 to 4 months.

Hummingbird Feeders

Hummer Food is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water.  Bring this to a boil and then let it cool.  Soften the cork in hot water.  Fill the clean feeder bottle clear up to the top and firmly place the cork in the bottle.  Having your feeder totally full with no air in the bottle keeps it from dripping.  A bit of the sugar water should overflow to accomplish this so we advise that you do it over the sink.  After you hang it in the location of your choice just sit back and enjoy watching those hummbirds fly!
