Alstroemeria Plant Questions

1. What is Alstroemeria?

Alstroemeria, also known as Peruvian lily, is a genus of flowering plants native to South America. They are popular for cut flowers due to their long vase life and vibrant colours.

2. What conditions do Alstroemeria need to grow?

Alstroemeria prefer full sun and a well-drained soil. They can tolerate dry periods, but will benefit from regular watering during the summer months and while they are establishing. Given they go dormant during winter, they can grow in almost all regions in NZ.

3. How do I plant and care for Alstroemeria?

To plant Alstroemeria, choose a sunny spot with a well-drained soil. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball of the plant and plant the Alstroemeria at the same depth as it was growing in the pot. Backfill the hole with soil, then water it in. Continue to water the plant so it doesn’t dry out as it establishes.

Caring for Alstroemeria involves water them regularly during summer, but being careful not to overwater them. They are susceptible to root rot, so it is important to let the soil dry out between waterings. During the winter months, you can reduce watering to once a month as a general rule. Alstroemeria also benefit from regular feeding, and a balanced fertiliser should be applied during spring.

4. How do I propagate Alstroemeria?

Alstroemeria are typically propagated by dividing the plants. Carefully remove the plant from its pot and gently divide the root ball into two or more sections. Replant each section in a separate pot and water well.

5. How do I pick Alstroemeria flowers?

To harvest Alstroemeria flowers, simply cut them off the plant at the base. Once the flowers have been cut, you can arrange them in a vase or use them to create floral arrangements.

6. Common problems with growing Alstroemeria

Some of the most common problems with growing Alstroemeria include:

7. Where is the best place to plant alstroemeria?

The best place to plant alstroemeria is in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. They can tolerate some shade, but will flower better in full sun.

8. Should I cut back my Alstroemeria?

Whether or not you should cut back your Alstroemeria depends on the condition of your plant. If you live in a warm climate with mild winters, you can cut back your plant in autumn or early winter. This will help to remove any dead or diseased foliage and encourage new growth in the spring. In colder climates the plant will die back anyway. If the plant is growing vigorously and you want to control it, simply cut it back aggressively after flowering.

9. How to cut back Alstroemeria

To cut back alstroemeria, use a sharp pair of secateurs and cut the stems off just above ground level. Do this in either late autumn or winter as a general rule.

10. Should I dead-head my Alstroemeria plants?

Removing spent flowers enables the plant to put more of its energy into new flowers. Therefore, if you have the time, dead-heading is a great way to get more flowers and a tidier plant.

11. Why are alstroemeria leaves turning yellow?

There are several reasons why Alstroemeria leaves might be turning yellow:

12. Are alstroemeria poisonous to cats?

Alstroemeria is not poisonous to cats. The ASPCA lists Alstroemeria as safe for cats, dogs, and even horses.

Alstroemeria's versatility and positive symbolism make it a popular choice for gifting and expressing a variety of sentiments. Their vibrant colors and cheerful blooms bring joy and add a touch of elegance to any occasion.

14. How long do Alstroemerias live for?

Alstroemeria plants are perennials, meaning they can live for many years if they are properly cared for. In ideal conditions, they can thrive for up to 10 years or more. However, their lifespan can be affected by various factors, including proper watering, soil conditions, sunlight exposure, and protection from pests and diseases.
