Boophone haemanthoides

Boophone haemanthoides is a striking plant for a large pot, and also makes a handsome feature planted in bold groups in rock garden pockets. It is important to note that the bulbs are highly sensitive to excess moisture during the winter growing period and require a completely dry summer period when they are dormant. The plants require high light intensity to grow well, preferring full sun for as much of the day as possible. A pot at least 400 mm deep is needed for a mature bulb. When displayed as a pot subject, it performs well when placed on a sunny patio. Grow the bulbs in a sandy, well-drained soil mixture. When planting B. haemanthoides bulbs, make sure that at least two thirds of the bulb is above ground level. Water the plant well once in late autumn, and wait for the leaves to appear. Thereafter, provide a good soaking once per month. As soon as the leaves start to turn yellow in late spring, withhold watering and keep the bulbs as dry as possible in summer.
In cultivation, flowering can be very erratic, and the main display feature of these plants lies in their ornamental leaf fans. Individual flowers are short-lived, lasting only a few days, and the flower head lasts no more than 7 days.

Companies who lie for no reason are fun

Hi potential boophone buyers! Planet Desert is lying in their reply. I’ll just go ahead and take the time out of my pandemic life to keep coming back daily to Karen it up and one star review in response to their responses, since I got a garbage plant/they want to rewrite futile history that’s timestamped. They blocked me when I tagged them at 10:19. There was no “f” word in my post to provoke the block as inaccurately stated by Planet Desert, though it did say “I love overpaying for rare plants that arrive damaged.” Super aggressive, eh? I wish I still had it, and the additional one saying Plant Desert blocks you if you give negative feedback, but it’s been 24 hours and I don’t save irrelevant stories thinking I’d have to go toe-to-toe with a business over their timing and accuracy... You’ll just have to trust. I do have my friend responding to the story about them blocking me and how tame the post was; attached. 100% admitted hostility came from me after the block and incoming ridiculous email at 10:30 citing my “aggressive” post and blaming the post office for the plant having no cushion. I told them to “f off forever” because they wanted me to send the damaged plant back for a refund. Pass, I’d rather give it a chance to pull through. After they responded again, I told them “this isn’t fwording off forever.” There was an accurate account of the most irrelevant exchange ever, and my repeated use of the f word, out of principle. There are no alternative truths in my house, kiddies. Be back tomorrow and every day to check for responses and leave more reviews/receipts since they wanted to be come on here and be publicly misleading... When I was already gracious enough to still give a good review on the plant that didn’t arrive busted. Not no review... Not a bad or reduced review... A five star review. After they blocked me from social media for sharing a valid opinion. See you in the morning, Planet Desert. Stop talking, Planet Desert.

Packaged poorly

Great care was put into making sure soil didn’t escape during transit via plastic wrap and rubber bands. No care whatsoever was put into making sure the plant would arrive undamaged. The delicate, rare plant was wrapped in a piece of paper that was taped to the pot and set in a box. I laughed in disbelief when I cut the paper and it flopped out completely creased and wrecked. They blocked me for posting that they are a “big *a-word* no” on my Instagram story, then hilarious customer service said since I got too aggressive on social media they will only refund the plant if I return it. I don’t want it to die so I’m not doing that, and hope it’ll pull through. I’m satisfied having taken at least six of your customers with me.

Hi Leah, I am sorry you have that impression on our company, we take great pride in our customer service. As we state in our listing, we always stand behind the quality of our products, as well as we always maintain good communication with our customers. We always try to solve any issues we can. We ship thousands of plants every day, it is normal that once and awhile plants can get damaged and is why we honor our customer satisfaction guarantee. The reason we blocked you on social media was not due to your review, as you can see our reviews are real and they are here for all to see. We blocked you because of your repeated usage of the F word, that is something we can not tolerate. We still stand on our promise to give all our customers 100% satisfaction. That is why we are offering you a full refund, but you denied it. I am sorry you find so much satisfaction in what you mentioned of taking our customers.
