RE: HAVE: Heliconia rostrata

Hi Gary,
I had the Lobster claw for the longest time, and I took them out as they became huge. Now I am thinking of planting them in large pots. If they bloom that is in pot that is.I have lots of Amaryllus bulbs.. If you are interested. I sent you an email few months ago, regarding Amazon lillies etc.. I bought a lot of those online. Do you have them full sun or part sun?

RE: HAVE: Heliconia rostrata

I remember seeing your post but it got deleted before I had a chance to read it lol I made a mistake in planting the LC in the shade house where they grew through the roof
The main problem I've had is being blown over,the flowers are very heavy I've removed them from the shrub border
as it's becoming a tree fern area . They grow well in either sun or shade but do require a lot of water .
The AL require shade and fairly rich soil . I grew them mostly in the shadehouse but moved a bunch to dappled shade in the yard after enriching the soil and adding pine mulch they are doing very well there
I still have both if still interested gary
