The “flowers” of the Anthurium are some of the longest-lasting on earth, which means that dazzling color will last in your home for months. The Anthurium symbolizes hospitality with its open heart-shaped flower and inspires happiness and abundance.
- Place your Anthurium in a warm, well-lit spot. The more light the plant receives, the more flowers your plant will produce, but never expose it to direct sunlight. During the winter they can handle less light.
- Keep the soil lightly moist during the growing season March through September. Water your Anthurium well and then allow the top 2.5 - 5 cm of soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering causes yellow leaf tips and under-watering causes brown leaf tips. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- Your Anthurium prefers temperatures between 18-26 °C degrees during the day and no cooler than 18 °C degrees at night. Avoid placing your plants near heating and air conditioning vents and fans.
- Your Anthurium loves a humid environment, so feel free to mist every day. Use a pebble tray or a humidifier during the winter months when the air tends to get much drier.
- Use a balanced fertilizer or one a little higher in nitrogen for Anthurium plants. Feed monthly in the spring and summer, when Anthurium plants are actively growing. Dilute the plant food to one-third of the recommended strength.
- Anthuriums are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and skin irritation, stomach pain and irritation with possible vomiting.
- Quickly remove fading or dying flowers as soon as they appear. This helps the plant focus its energy on new growth. Give your Anthurium a six-week rest during the winter. Lower temperatures, less light, and drier soil during this time help Anthurium produce more flowers in the spring and summer.
