Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Known as the Siam tulip, this flamboyant plant is native to Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. An inedible relative of ginger and turmeric, it is grown for its brilliant pink bracts.

The award-winning Curcuma ‘Skyline’ is distinguished by its especially large and showy inflorescences. From late spring to summer, tall, single stems burst into glowing pink torches that can remain in flower for an incredible two months. The bracts are surrounded by erect, lance-shaped leaves, the whole plant having a narrow, upright habit that makes it a perfect focal plant for narrow spaces. Alternatively, use it to inject some dynamism and tropical colour into larger houseplant arrangements. Height: 60cm (24in). Spread:20cm (8in).

1 x 19cm Potted Plant (60cm tall) (KF5615)

Grow Curcuma in bright indirect light, well away from direct sunlight. Avoid positioning this plant close to cold draughts and radiators. Maintain an average room temperature of 15-25°C. During active growth, allow the top 2 inches of compost to dry out between waterings and feed every 2-3 weeks with liquid tomato feed. This houseplant appreciates high humidity so place the pot on a pebble tray half filled with water.
Plants enter dormancy from late summer through to early spring. Keep the roots pot-bound to induce stress. Reduce the room temperature down by about 5? but do not allow temperatures to drop below 15°C as this can damage the plant. Reduce watering and keep the plant on the dry side. Each stem only flowers once so the previous year’s stems will wither and die. New stems will develop from the base in spring and will bloom within the same season.
