Ordering Tropical Flowers

When you or your recipient receive tropical flowers from our Long Beach shop, you will get a hand arranged and hand delivered arrangement.

We do not believe in throwing them in boxes and have you construct an arrangement yourself.

While tropical flowers are somewhat hardy, they do require special handling and care so we take great pride in presenting them in a beautiful way to your recipient.tropicalafm2

Caring for Tropical Flowers

When you receive a tropical flower arrangement or send one to a loved one, there are some specific ways to ensure that they last. The most important part is to give them an environment that is most conducive to their natural one.

However, don’t assume that this means lots of water. As with any flower or plant, they can get too much water and have their roots rot from all the water.

tropicalafm1Take into consideration your climate and where the plant comes from originally. Typically, you can get some instructions on care from the florist in terms of watering, sunlight and shade, soil and temperature. This will ensure that you can enjoy your tropical flower for a long time.
