Plant of the Week

The Rex Begonia 

These plants are known for their showy, sometimes jaw-dropping leaf coloration. These plants are grown almost exclusively for their foliage - their blooms tend to be small and less showy, so many growers pinch off blooms to maintain breathtaking leaf displays.

Basic Care:
Be sure to keep your Rex Begonias in light, in direct light. Water them once a week but DO NOT over water. Wait till soil is relatively dry before watering. Rex Begonias do tend to hibernate, so don't be worried if your plant looks bare, as long as it has good care it will come back looking beautiful!

Simple Orchid Care Tips

Orchids are beautiful! Let's keep them beautiful. Here are some quick and simple orchid care tips for newcomers to follow. Don't be an orchid killer. Make sure your orchids are kept inside with day time temperatures of 70 to 90 degrees. Water every 5 to 7 days, make sure they are thoroughly watered, and avoid water on their leaves. Keep them in moderate, indirect sunlight. And fertilize one to two times per month. Most importantly, when the blooms are gone, the orchid is not dead, keep tending to them and you will enjoy more beautiful blooms in time. If you care for them, they will reward you with their beauty again and again. Visit us, call us, or attend our upcoming Orchid Workshop in August to learn more! 916 - 922 - 4769
