Anthurium Care

Light:

Anthuriums as a rule will take as much light as you can provide them with, but not direct sunlight. Lower levels of light will slow down or cease flower production. 

Water: 

While Anthuriums are able to handle dryness around the root ball, they need to be watered thoroughly and allowed to dry just slightly before watering again. 

Drying out in between waterings can cause the tip to burn and damage the root, while overwatering can also cause root damage and sudden yellowing of leaves.

Temperature:

Anthuriums grow best with day temperatures of 25°C to 32°C, and night temperatures of 20°C to 23°C. Anthuriums will not tolerate frost or freezing conditions.

Fertilizer:

Anthurium only needs to be fertilized with a one-quarter strength fertilizer once every three to four months. To get the best blooms, use a fertilizer that has a higher phosphorus number (the middle number). 

Potting:

Anthuriums prefer a growing medium that is coarse and well drained. A half and half mix of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer.
