Black Flamingo Flower

Black Flamingo Flower Care Guide


Black Flamingo Flower prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves and cause them to develop brown patches. If placed in low light conditions, the plant may produce fewer flowers and have slower growth.


Water the Black Flamingo Flower when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away from the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. During winter or cooler months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.


Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 60-80%. Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.


Keep the Black Flamingo Flower in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and no lower than 60°F (15°C) at night. Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations, which can cause stress and leaf drop.


Feed the Black Flamingo Flower with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a fertilizer high in phosphorus to promote flowering. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when the plant is dormant.


Black Flamingo Flower is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and swelling of the mouth, throat, and digestive tract.

Additional Care Information

Use a well-draining, aerated potting mix to prevent waterlogging and maintain good root health. Prune the Black Flamingo Flower regularly to remove dead or yellowing leaves and spent flowers. This will encourage new growth and flowering. Black Flamingo Flower can be propagated through division. Carefully divide the plant at the root ball and replant the divisions in separate pots.


Yellow Leaves: Yellowing leaves may indicate overwatering, underwatering, or a nutrient deficiency. Adjust your watering routine, check the soil moisture and nutrient levels, and consider repotting if the soil is compacted. Leaf Browning: Brown leaf tips or edges can be caused by dry air, underwatering, or excess fertilizer salts. Maintain proper humidity levels, adjust your watering routine, and flush the soil periodically to remove excess salts. Pest Infestation: Black Flamingo Flower can be susceptible to common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.
