Lisianthus is a genus of 3 classes in the family Gentianaceae. Lisianthus is found in cool regions of the Southern United States, Mexico, Caribbean and Northern America. Lisianthus is popular in horticulture, as an ornate, a preserved indoor plant, and a cut flower.  The name Lisianthus originated from the Greek words lysis, meaning dissolution and anthos, whose meaning is flower. 

Lisianthus is large gentian-like bell-shaped blossoms with flaring light purple petal-like lobes. They blossom in summer from the higher foliage axils. Long-lasting blossoms with four wide beautiful, sensitive plant petals and square results in, they come in different colours such as white, various colours of light red, rose, deep purple, and bi-colors such as blue-violet. Double and single Lisianthus flowers types exist as well.

The collective names of Lisianthus are Prairie Gentian, Texas bluebell, Tulip gentian, Bluebells and Lira de San Pedro.

Lisianthus is said to be a flower revealing the characteristics of personality and friendliness, but long ago was associated more closely with feelings of romantic cravings.

 

Care and Handling Lisianthus Flowers and Plants

Display flowers in a cool spot: Most flowers prefer temperature ranges between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 22 degrees Celsius) and are best shown away from direct  sunshine, heating or chilling ports, straight under ceiling fans, or on top of television  sets or heaters, which give off heat and can cause flowers to dry out. Avoid putting real blossoms near maturing fruit, which produces small amounts of ethylene gas that can age them ahead of time.

When buying: Buy Lisianthus branches that have 1 – 3 flowers open. Do not buy Lisianthus which leaf is yellowish. The Lisianthus is a little bit ethylene delicate, so examine to see if they have been pretreated with an anti-ethylene item, such as EthylBloc Technological innovation. Also, figure out about the way to obtain the Lisianthus? What is the cultivar name? Has the item been reserved dry or wet?

Process/Pre-treated: Eliminate leaves below remedy level. Recut branches. After reducing, moisturize with Floralife’s Hydraflor® 100 to enhance water usage. OR, try Floralife® Fast Dip 100 immediate moisturizing treatment.

Check your flowers daily: Keep the container, package or liner filled with clean water. Even if the container has floral foam, you should keep the level high to promote durable blossoms. The container's standard water has a clean plant meals added to it. If you completely change the standard water, you should also intensely clean the container. Add clean water combined with a commercial clean flowers meals. These plant meals may be supplied by the flower shop who delivered your order and they contain the correct ingredients to properly feed the blossoms, keep bacteria at bay (which can block the branches and prevent them from absorbing water), encourage pals to open and prolong living off the bouquet. It's one of the best and easiest ways to extend living of your blossoms, but be sure to follow the directions on the package correctly. Poorly combined plant meals can actually do more damage than good.

Change their water, and Add additional fresh flower food: Be sure to clean the container before replenishing it with room-temperature water mixed with a lot of fresh plant food. Be sure no waste is sailing in the water (such as simply leaves and branch parts) as this could improve the growth of bacteria which can reduce a flower's life.
