Anthurium Care Instructions
Light - These tropical beauties like their sunshine! Find a nice bright spot to set your plant in so it can soak up some rays and keep the blooms coming.
Water - Anthuriums are hardy plants that can tolerate drought. They will let you know they’re thirsty by going limp where their stem meets their spade-shaped leaves and blooms. Water them thoroughly and allow the soil to dry out well between waterings.
Anthuriums can be identified by their shiny, almost artificial-looking blooms. Flowers will come and go during it’s blooming cycle but they usually stick around for a good long time. Plants that flower and fruit generally have to go through a period of dormancy in order to regenerate enough energy to go through another bloom cycle. Blooms will brown and dry up and can be trimmed back to where they sprouted from so that you’re left with the greenery. Keep taking care of it like you normally would, adding fertilizer into the watering schedule if possible. This will help restore the plant’s energy in order to re-bloom.
Rotate your plant periodically to ensure even growth on all sides and dust the leaves from time to time so the plant can photosynthesize efficiently.
*Just like people, each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations. These are basic guidelines that may have to be augmented slightly depending on the environment you place your plant in, as well as frequency and amount of water given.
