GENERAL

Hawaiian Tropical Flowers are exotic and beautiful with a long vase life. They consist of exotic heliconias, gingers, and foliage in a rainbow of sizes and shapes. The bold look of Hawaiian tropicals are perfect alone, or they can offset the graceful and delicate blossoms of traditional or temperate-zone flowers.

CHARACTERISTICS

Quality Hawaii tropicals, grown in or near Hawaii’s rainforests, are unmatched in variety, shape, size, color and longevity. In fact tropicals range in length from six inches to six feet and in colors from the deepest orange to the richest purple, an unsurpassed selection of bold lines and vibrant colors.

  • CARE
  • Unpack Carefully
  • Trim 1/2 to 1 inch from the end of each stem, place in clean room temperature water.
  • Place the flowers in a clean vase with clean water.
  • Wet flower heads and foliage daily to prevent dehydration.
  • Keep flowers away from heat sources and air conditioning ducts.
  • If heliconias or birds of paradise are supplied to you in a closed condition, open one or two flowers by hand from their protective bracts or spathe.
  • Bird of paradise should be stored at temperatures above 45 degrees F, while gingers and heliconias should not be stored below 65 degrees F.
  • To prevent gingers from bending, you’ll want to hold them vertically.

Good news. These flowers aren’t ethylene sensitive.

The bird of paradise’s tendency to produce a lot of nectar can sometimes lead to mold growth on the flower. This mold can be removed easily by washing the flower with plain warm, soapy water and rinsing with clean water.

TELL YOUR CUSTOMERS TO...

  • Recut stems once. Use clean water — with or without a floral preservative.
  • Keep flowers away from heat sources, air conditioning drafts, and direct sunlight.
  • Clean vase when changing water. Tropicals have long vase life, up to two weeks.
