The Perfect Gifts: Flowering plants make excellent gifts for Administrative Professionals Day (April 26).Phalaenopsis Orchid Care: These exotic, butterfly-shaped flowering plants are always a sophisticated choice for home or office decor. To make sure your orchid stays exceptional, place it in a moderately bright location. Water your orchid when the soil begins to dry out, usually every week to 10 days. Feed your plants with an orchid fertilizer and repot with fresh soil/fertilizer when the blooming season is done. The phalaenopsis orchid is forgiving and easy to care for, but make sure roots don’t get saturated, as that will quickly make your orchid ill.
Pothos Plant Care: The hanging green vines of the pothos are beautiful, and low-maintenance. You can trust that you have received a quality plant from Blossom Flower Shops – and once you bring the pothos to your home or office, you should easily be able to keep the pothos plant healthy. Keep the plant in medium to bright, indirect sunlight.; and water when the soil is still moist as it doesn’t like to be too wet, or too dry. Pothos plants will likely need pruning, so cut with scissors near the stem base, keeping the stub above the soil line to prevent rotting.
Kalanchoe Plant Care: Kalanchoe plants exhibit vivid flowers in shades of red, pink or yellow. A member of the succulent family, they predictably love sunlight – but these beauties need only one or two hours of direct sunlight per day as hot windows or too much sun will scorch the leaves. They required a thorough watering only once per week and should be in a container that will allow excess water to drain. As to climate, the kalanchoe should be right at home at room temperature, with a few hours of sunbathing occasionally. Whether to surround yourself with natural ambiance, to give a gift to someone in your life, or simply to let someone know you are thinking of them – the green and flowering plants of spring are a perfect choice.
