The Red Flamboyan — AFAR

Rincon, Rincón 00677, Puerto Rico

Craving some delicious Puerto Rican food? Want some that is a little atypical but still with island/Latin flavor? The Red Flamboyan in Rincon is your spot. Opened in 2012 (under new owners), this place is nestled amongst the most iconic Puerto Rican trees, the flowering red flamboyan. The restaurant serves typical Puerto Rican dishes (empanadillas, mofungo, sorrullos, bolitos—fried foods common to Puerto Rico) but with a gourmet twist and unique flavor. Not feeling fried food? That’s fine, there are plenty of other delicious dishes. I tried the pinon and ropa vieja appetizers, both of which are so delicious I could have just had more for dinner! My favorite dinner was the featured entree in the photo: steamed mahi mahi with vegetables, seasoned lightly with butter and lemon. It’s wrapped, cooked, and beautifully presented in parchment paper. As in most Puerto Rican owned and operated restaurants, expect to be here over an hour. The cooks and servers aren’t in a rush to get you out, so they take their time preparing your food. If you have a leisurely evening ahead of you, this would be a lovely spot for a great meal and a relaxing environment. They have everything you’d want from a Puerto Rican culinary experience—a wide selection of appetizers and entrees, happy hour specials, Puerto Rican reggae music, friendly English-speaking staff, and a lovely location.

    Characteristics of a Flamboyant Tree

    Before we get into the topic, would you like us to know what this magnificent tree is? So it will be easier for us to recognize him . .. although, however, it is more difficult not to recognize him. But it won’t hurt to know what it is, so that the place we chose to land it, be the most appropriate. Let’s start:

    Bright, whose scientific name is Delonix royal , is a tree belonging to the family Fabaceae and the subfamily Caesalpinioideae. With a life expectancy of of 60 years, is native to Madagascar, where it is endangered due to habitat loss.

    With fast growth — under favorable conditions you can do it at a rate of 50 cm per year — up to a height of 12 m, with an umbrella crown with a diameter of 5-6 m. Its leaves are evergreen, semi-evergreen or deciduous depending on climatic conditions and harvest:

    • Expires: our tree loses its leaves in autumn/winter in colder climates if the minimum temperature is below 5ºC or during the dry season.
    • Semi-perennial: flamboyans partially lose their leaves if the minimum temperature remains around 10ºC and the maximum does not rise above 18ºC.
    • Perennial: If the climate is warm, with temperatures ranging from 10 to 30-35°C, and the rainfall pattern in the area is sufficient for the survival of the tree, as it would be in a humid tropical climate, brightly colored plants will always have leaves. Of course, you should be aware that you will lose the oldest ones within a year when new ones appear.

    Flowers, without a doubt, its main attraction are large ones. They have four petals up to 8 cm long , and a fifth petal, called the standard, is longer and colored yellow and white. We can say that the color is red, and the type species ( Delonix royal ) is red, but there are varieties, Delonix regia var. Flavida , which has a spectacular yellow-orange color. In the spring they germinate on the tree, When the specimen reaches the age of 5-6 years and, if he is lucky and he is pollinated, fruits will immediately begin to ripen, which are pods that, after ripening, become woody, dark brown in color and have a length of up to 60 cm by 5 cm wide. Inside we will find seeds that are elongated, more or less than 1 cm long and very hard.

    The bark of the trunk is smooth, greyish-brown even from a young age. Roots are very invasive so you should be very careful when planting it near pipes, floors or structures. Ideally, to avoid problems, place it at least 10 m away from the mentioned places.

    How to distinguish bright from jacaranda?

    In addition, it must be said that this is an allelopathic plant . This word may seem very strange to all of us when we read or hear it for the first time, but it’s actually easy to remember: allelopathic plants. those that do not allow almost any other grass to grow under its shade like our protagonist, but also Mediterranean fig trees ( Ficus carica ) or eucalyptus, among others.

    Use of bright wood

    Flamboan is used mainly as an ornamental plant in hot climates as an isolated specimen to be able to contemplate it in all its splendor and enjoy its shade; you can also work like bonsai . However, in the Caribbean, ripe pods (with seeds) are used. as percussion instruments known as shak-shak, which is Spanish for maracas. On the other hand, in Colombia are used to feed livestock.

    Flamboyan properties

    This tree has interesting medicinal properties. In fact, is used to relieve rheumatic pain, respiratory symptoms and asthma . To benefit from them, you can macerate the bark to apply to the painful area later, or prepare the flowers and then drink them as if it were an infusion.

    How to reproduce a flamboyant

    Do you want a beautiful tree in your garden? Please note:

    Bright is reproduced in three ways: cuttings, seeds and air removal .

    Propagation by cutting

    The cutting method is the fastest, as it will allow us to get an already grown specimen in a few months. To do this, wait until autumn and do the following:

    1. Choose a thick semi-woody branch at least 1 cm in diameter and 40-50 cm long.
    2. Now make a bevel (that is, slightly tilted outward) and seal the wound of the tree, not the cut, with healing paste.
    3. Dampen the base of the cutting with water and fill it with liquid rooting hormones , which you can find on sale in nursery and garden stores.
    4. Then it’s time to plant in a pot with porous substrate, consisting of 60% black peat and 40% perlite or coir. You can also use only perlite.
    5. Add a pinch of sulfur or copper — as if you were adding salt to French fries — on the surface of the substrate. This will prevent fungal damage to the cutting.
    6. Then pour liberally over .
    7. Finally, it will be placed in a place protected from direct sunlight, and always keep the base slightly damp .

    Propagation by seeds

    Article subject:

    How bright seeds are sown?

    This is the most common method among hobbyists. Seeds for this, of course, must be obtained, preferably in the spring, which you will find for sale in online nurseries or, if you live in a tropical climate, you can get them directly from the tree.

    Once you have them, you must go to to criticize them . How? Very simple: sandpaper or, if you don’t have it, you can do it against the wall, or even with a piece of wood. You have to apply some pressure and give it a few passes, but you have to be very careful not to overdo it. You will know that everything is ready when you see a dark brown color right at the point that made the most contact with the stone or sandpaper.

    Now is placed in a glass of pure water at room temperature overnight. The next morning, you should see that the peculiar coating that covers them has begun to come off, which is an unmistakable sign that they have begun to sprout. If they don’t, sand them down a little — just a little, 2 or 3 more passes — over and over again, put them in a glass overnight. If all goes well, the germination process can be continued in the seed bed, which I recommend using in pots at least 10-15 cm in diameter and 6-8 cm deep.

    Article subject:

    The first year of Bright

    Black peat mixed with 30% perlite can be used as a substrate, but you can improve it by adding 10% organic compost, such as worm castings (for sale here) . In any case, once the pot is almost full, you should place the seed in the center of the pot and cover it with a small amount of substrate, just enough so that the wind cannot blow it away if it blows too hard.

    And to finish, will add a pinch of copper or sulfur and water generously so that the substrate is well saturated. We will place it in a place where there will be direct sun, we will always keep the pot slightly damp but not flooded, and within 5-7 days the cotyledons will appear, which are the first leaves that all plants take. from. Later, the flamboyana’s own leaves will do this.

    Propagation by air branch

    In spring (April or May, if you are in the northern hemisphere), you can cut a thick branch with a diameter of about 2-3 cm, a little and impregnation of this area with rooting hormones before covering it with a dark-colored plastic bag (preferably black).

    The substrate is then “watered” using a syringe filled with water. This should be done every 3-4 days, so that in a month the roots will begin to sprout . In another month you will be able to cut down a new tree.

    Can transplants be done?

    This is not a very common technique for these plants, but if you want orange and red flowers on the same tree, grafting can help you achieve this. This is done as follows:

    • A cut from one side to the other branches at least 1 cm thick. It must be deep.
    • then graft inserted which will be a semi-arboreal branch of another bright one.
    • And then is attached with vaccination tape.

    If everything went well, the first shoots will appear in a maximum of two months.

    Flamboyan care

    This is a very special tree that has its place in many gardens, even if they are in the wrong climate. Is very easy to care for as you will see:

    Ubicación

    Place in full sun . Does not tolerate shade, and may have problems in partial shade.

    irrigation

    Article topic:

    The most common mistakes when growing a flowering tree

    Often in the summer, during which we can water every 1-2 days if the temperature is above 30 ° C. The rest of the year we will reduce the frequency of . And we will water once a week, maximum two.

    fertilizer

    Highly recommended, especially if you live in an unfavorable climate. Fertilize it from spring to late summer with a fast acting fertilizer such as guano. following the manufacturer’s recommendations. In autumn and winter, I advise you to water it monthly with half the indicated dose of Nitrofosca (blue ball fertilizer).

    Substrate

    It can be used black peat mixed with 20% perlite , as well as the addition of 10% worm castings.

    Replanting

    In the early years of youth it can be grown in a pot, passing it to the major every year , in the spring.

    Country style

    He is very sensitive to cold, especially when he is young. While there are other adults in the Canary Islands that have survived down to -4ºC, has an ideal temperature range of 10 to 35ºC.

    Can you have a bright one in a pot?

    Of course yes, but for this it is important that he is planted in a larger pot as he grows. and that it is pruned regularly at the end of winter.

    We will put a universal nutrient substrate, or if we want coconut fiber (sold here), and we will water several times a week so that it does not dry out. In autumn, when the temperature starts to drop, we will put it indoors or in a greenhouse.

    How to make the flamboyant survive the winter

    This is a plant that I fell in love with many years ago. I love its size, its elegance, the color of its flowers…everything. I know I’m not the only one, and surely there is someone — maybe you? — who also lives in a climate that is not as good as it should be for the bright ones, but who nevertheless wants to try. So I’ll tell you how I survived by winter.

    Where I live, annual temperatures range from -1ºC (may drop to -2ºC if there is a polar wave) to 38ºC. Regardless, I have brightness. Why? Because every winter they are left outside but protected with plastic and this ensures that the substrate is always wet. Of course, it is only watered on days when the weather is better, otherwise the roots will find water that may be too cold and there is no need to risk it.

    Another important point is the «blue manure» I mentioned earlier. If you pour half a small spoon of this compost, it is poured into pots and watered immediately, The root system will be kept at a temperature where it can continue to work , i.e. absorb water so that the plant can stay alive.

    Flamboyant Pests and Diseases

    Flamboyant is a tree that is fortunately free from pests and diseases. However, yes, you can see it from time to time cotton mealybugs y aphids which are controlled with insecticides containing abamectin and/or pyrethrin; and if watered excessively, fungus Phytophthora can harm you, which can be treated with any broad spectrum fungicide.

    In the meantime, our special issue is about one of the most impressive trees: bright. What do you think? By the way, did you know that there is a yellow flameboyant? Find out:
