How Do You Keep A Flamingo Plant Warm?
Ask the Expert: How to keep a Flamingo Plant "warm"'?
Hi, I've just been given a lovely flamingo flower plant.Â I had a quick chat to a nursery owner over the phone, and they said the room it's situated in should never be under 10 degrees Celsius, or it will die.
I''m a little worried, as it can get quite cold where I live, especially during night.Â I don't think it goes below zero degrees in the house, but I''m sure it drops below 10C.
Could someone please advise me on how to keep my flamingo plant "warm" so it doesn't freeze?Â Karyn
Unless your house drops below 50degrees for a substantial part of the night, you should be ok.Â Normally a drop in the temperature accompanied by frost is what really does the damage.Â Anthurium (Flamingo Flower) needs a high humidity environment with constant temperature.Â So as long as your house doesn't go from one extreme to another in a very short period of time the plant won't have a problem.Â Of course the higher the temperature the better the Flamingo plant will do.Â Optimum temperature for it would be 78 to 90degrees during the day and 68 to 80 at night.Â However, this is the way most people keep their homes.Â Most people find Flamingo will work with their normal household temperatures.Â I would place it in the warmest room in your house that has bright filtered light and occassionaly mist it with warm water.Â Good Luck and keep me posted.
