The Anthurium will do well in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light. Bright, sunny windows should be avoided. To encourage even growth, rotate the plant every few months once it begins to lean towards the light.
Medium to bright indirect light. Direct sunlight should be avoided.
Water moderately so that the soil remains damp, not soggy. Water when the surface becomes slightly dry. When watering, remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh water lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water before returning the plant to its decorative planter. Dry soil should be avoided.
Does well at temperature between 65°F - 70°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided. Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts as well as air conditioning or heating vents.
Requires higher levels of humidity, around 75% or above. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.
The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for 2-3 years. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil.
Unhealthy Plant Signs
Yellowing leaves may be a sign of overwatering. Shrivelled or wrinkled leaves are a sign of underwatering. Browning leaf tips or edges indicate that the plant is getting too much sunlight.
If ingested, may cause a harmful reaction in people and pets. Handling of sap may also cause allergic reactions.
