Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

These lovely Platycoden grandiflorus will flower for several weeks in late summer with very little care. They can be enjoyed indoors on a windowsill or outdoors in a pot or border.

Outdoors you probably can allow the rain to do your watering but try to make sure the soil is kept damp in hot weather and that your balloon flower does not sit in a puddle if it is very wet. If you are keeping your balloon indoors, aim to keep the compost damp not dry or soggy.

These balloon flowers have recently been potted up so should have plenty of nutrients to keep them going for the first month. After that if you are keeping it in a pot, a general-purpose plant or houseplant food will keep them looking fresh and producing new flowers.

You can pinch out the spent flowers as they die off to keep your plant looking tidy and to encourage more growth and if you have a nice sunny or partially spot in the garden you might decide to plant it out. If you do this don’t be alarmed when the foliage dies off with the frost, just trim them back and they will re-emerge in the Spring.
