What is the best fertilizer to use on Kanagroo Paw Plants. I live in Southern California.
Kangaroo paws need little or no fertilizer, but you can improve their growth with a slow-release 12-4-8 fertilizer spread over the soil around the plant at a rate of 1 tablespoon per 1 square foot. Apply the fertilizer once every three months or according to label instructions. Removing the fans of flowers helps stimulate growth because each fan of flowers only blooms once.
Can kangaroo paw and gardenias be grown together in a full sun flower bed?
Kangaroo Paw are hardy in zones 10-11. Gardenias are hardy in zone 8-11.
The first question you need to answer is if you are in the correct growing zones.
Kangaroo will need a near full sun location and Gardenias will need a partial shade location.

The fuzzy colored antler parts are faded out and looking wilted. Do they get cut back at this point? If so how far down do I cut them!
You should dead head the flowers as soon as they start to lose there color and nice appearance. Cut them down to the base of the plant, this will actually help the plant produce more flowers.
I am having problems with stems dropping from my plant. I water once a week and have tried to increase humidity. It is facing in a North window. I really like this plant and would hate to loose it. Should I fertilize now, add chelated iron Thanks for any info.
Although these plants live only in zones 9 and above, it is possible to keep the plants indoors. They do require a bit of a dormancy in which the humidity needs to be VERY low. Some leaf dropping indoors will be normal.

Hi, I have a Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos "Bush Dance") but there is a obvious infestation all over the leaves. I was wondering if you could identify what it is from the photos supplied. I have tried spraying with "Yates Fungus Gun" spray for Black spot, Powdery mildew & Rust. this hasn't worked. Any help would be appreciated. Regards Dennis
This infection is, likely, in the soil. The best way to fix this would be an application of dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur. This will kill the infection, as well as recondition the soil back to a more fertile condition for plants, rather than fungal/bacterial microbes.
