|Dear Monrovia, I heard about a tropical plant called flamelia, I am not sure that is the correct spelling. I believe it is purchased like a stalk, it is put in good soil, kept dry until it starts to shoot. Can you tell me if you recognize this plant, if so so do you sell it?
Sincerely, Ann Minnich
|I'm afraid I don't recognize the plant. The closest sounding to your flamelia is plumeria, which produces fragrant flowers used for Hawaiian Leis. It can be started from cuttings. The only plant I know that is commonly available as a dry stalk is the Hawaiian Ti plant (Cordyline Terminalis). Monnrovia does sell these plants, but they are available in one- or five-gallon nursery pots. I don't know if we're talking about the same plant, though, so why not do a search of the Monrovia plant catalog (www.monrovia.com) and look at the photo of the plant? If this is what you're looking for, you can do a search of local retailers by entering your zip code. Best wishes in your search!|
