Kula Farm Flower Care Guide
General Plant Information The plant known as "
Upon delivery, unpack them immediately.
When you put the plants in water, be absolutely certain their leaves do not come in contact with it. Remove any leaves that look like that they may become immersed.
Trim ½ inch of the stems, be certain to treat the plant delicately while doing so.
If you happen to notice any leaves change colors, don't be alarmed. This is the nature of the plant and in no way takes away from the quality or beauty of the flower.
If you feel the need to enhance the visibility of the flower, you can remove leaves as soon as you notice any change in color. Some varieties have leaves that brown very quickly, especially the Duchess varieties, but the flower stays very colorful for a long time.
To dry your protea, some people like to hang the stems upside down in a dark area. However, you may also let them dry in your display outside of water if you so choose as they start to go brown on their own.
Kula Farm Wreath Care Information
Upon receiving your wreath unpack it (I gather you are doing that now).
When you hang your wreath it is best to keep it away from air conditioning or heating vents, for both units tend to dehumidify the air and cause your wreath to dry more quickly than normal. I have seen some go dry in as few as three days next to an air conditioning vent here on Maui.
Wreaths do equally well outside and inside. I have seen them last weeks to months on a gate or door in the snow in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have also seen them last weeks inside, however, when dehumidifiers are running wreaths may dry out quickly to their beautiful dry state.
You do not need to water your wreath.
As time goes on you will see your flowers dry and turn shades of gold and brown. I have some wreaths from ten years ago still hanging, they do make beautiful dried wreaths when they are done changing.
Avoid direct sunlight inside, and extreme temperatures. Keeping them "cool" and away from heating or cooling vents will prolong the life of the flowers. I hope you find your wreath to be fun as well as beautiful.
