Heliconias are one of the main families of tropical flowers we grow. These durable exotic flowers are known throughout the world for their beauty and rightly so. If taken care of properly certain cut heliconia flowers can stay beautiful and look fresh for up to a month! Originally the heliconia family comes from the American Tropics. Over 89 species are recognized, all of which are placed in the single family of Heliconia. There are more than 350 varieties of heliconia all in all, of which about 98 percent are native to tropical America. Heliconia plant sizes vary between 1 1/2-foot dwarfs to 30-foot tree-sized giants. Things grow quickly here in Hawaii and if left unattended jungle patches of Heliconia can grow dense and unpenetrable. Most noticeable are the flower’s bright colors which come in a wide range of hues and combinations from reds, oranges, and whites to greens, yellows and pinks.
Please plant as soon as possible after you receive the rhizome.
The rhizome should still have growing ‘buds’ or new shoots as well as the leaf stem.
The rhizome should be planted with the top (leaf stem/new shoots/buds pointing upwards) no more than 3-4 cm under the soil. New shoots or larger buds should be above the soil. You can often look at the rhizome and see where the soil line had been while it was growing.
It is very important not to plant the rhizome too deep, as this will invite fungi and cause root rot. Freshly planted rhizomes need oxygen to grow new roots and will die if the planting medium is too dense or too wet.
After planting, water thoroughly, then do not water again until soil is getting dry. Keep evenly moist, but not wet, when shoots to grow and leaves start to unfold.
If planted in pots, these should be of sufficient size - at least 10 to 15 cm wider than rhizome size. Keep the pots in a warm, sunny place. When leaves start to unfold the plants can be planted out - again in well drained soil.
A slow release fertilizer is ideal in the beginning. Larger and already established plants require more fertilizing and more water.
