calceolaria new E 6” Pot
Calceolaria also called Lady’s purse, Slipper flower and Pocketbook flower,or Slipperwort, is a genus of plants in the Calceolariaceae family Calceolarias are soft stemmed biennials that form compact, mounding plants that grow 6″-15″ tall, depending on the cultivar. They have soft, light green, deeply textured 3″ leaves with scalloped edges, but the foliage tends to disappear under the masses of unique, brightly colored, 1½” Pouch Flowers as they begin to open.
When growing Calceolarias as house plants, they should be planted in a peat moss based potting mix.
Pre-fertilized potting mixes work well.
Pouch Flowers grow best in a cool (60°-65° during the day, 50°-55° at night), draft free area
where they will receive plenty of bright, indirect light, but not full sun.
To provide additional humidity, place the planter on a tray filled with moistened pebbles.
Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist but never soggy, especially when your Calceolarias are in bud or bloom.
Avoid getting water on the foliage and the crown. Calceolaria is a delightful annual flower that adds loads of drama to your early-spring deck, patio, balcony, or other outdoor living space. These cool-weather-loving plants show off unique flowers, reminiscent of orchids, on tidy mounding plants. The delightful flowers are held on stems above the dark green, arrow-shaped leaves, making calceolaria a show stopper. Calceolaria doesn’t require a lot of fertilizer, but you can use any general-purpose garden fertilizer on it. Follow the directions on the product packaging to know how much fertilizer to use and how often to use it.
