Ranunculus

Scientific Name: Ranunculus

Height: Rununculus typically grow between 40-70 cm or 15-28’’ in height. This range allows the plants to develop a sturdy stem and produce numerous blooms above the foliage. Proper spacing between plants ensures adequate growth and air circulation.

This timeline can vary depending on factors such as climate conditions and soil quality. Growers should be patient as the plants take time to establish themselves before flowering.

Vase life: The vase life of ranunculus typically ranges from 7 to 14 days. With proper care and conditioning, these beautiful blooms can last up to two weeks in a vase.
