Planting and care

  • It should be given plenty of water when flowering, and good drainage is absolutely necessary.
  • It likes a warm, moist temperature which should not be lower than 55 degrees.
  • In summer your shrimp can enjoy a vacation in the garden and continue to bloom.
  • You may sink it, pot and all to the rim, in a sunny location.
  • From time to time the pot should be rotated so roots will not go through the drainage hole and become embedded in the soil.
  • In the fall, take up the pot, cut the plant back and re-pot it. Or perhaps you will have a supply of new plants and will not care to over-winter the old one.
  • However, it will continue to bloom for several yea
  • Beleperone Guttata care

    The shrimp is grown primarily for its flower heads producing a profusion of overlapping floral bracts, tipped with small white flowers with purple-spots, each having two slender petals and long yellow stamens, amid bright green leaves.

    The chief effect is made by the long-lasting, unique flower bracts. The flowers last only a few days but the flower heads last for a long period of time. This makes the plant to appear in bloom all year round.

    Sunlight Plenty of bright light with some direct sunlight is essential for satisfactory production of the colourful bracts. When resting in winter, place the plant away from the window.
    Watering Water sparingly enough to make the potting mixture barely moist, and allow the top two-thirds of the mixture to dry out between watering.
    Soil Plant outdoors in fertile, moist, well-drained soil. It does best in well-drained sandy or loamy soil, but will tolerate most soil types which drain well.
    Temperature Normally warm room temperatures suit this plant, but too much heat makes for soft and spindly growth. The recommended winter temperature is 18 degrees C (64 degrees F).
    Fertilizer Use standard liquid fertilizer once every two weeks from late winter to early autumn only, but then cease feeding so that growth slows down.
