Plant Care Guide

Light

Bright indirect light is best for colorful, long-lasting flowers. Do not place in direct sunlight. Plants have a tendency to lean towards the sunlight, so rotate every few days to maintain upright habit.

Water

Allow top inch of soil to dry before watering so check about twice a week. Do not allow plant to sit in standing water, as this may cause rot to form. To improve humidity, set on a tray of pebbles and water.

Level of Care

Needs a little extra care. Just be sure the plant is in bright indirect sunlight and never let the soil dry out. Prune off expired blooms to help the plant focus on new growth.

Air Purifying

Anthurium is particularly effective at removing harmful household chemicals like ammonia and formaldehyde.

Fertilizer

To get the best blooms, use a fertilizer that has a higher phosphorus number, and only fertilize when the plant is actively growing.

high-temp-plant-guide-icon

Temperature

Anthurium should be kept in stable temperatures, ideally between 70-80 degrees. Avoid drafty areas, especially below 60 degrees or in areas prone to frost.

soil-plant-guide-icon

Soil

Anthuriums prefer a coarse, well-draining All-Purpose potting soil. To improve humidity, set on a tray of pebbles and water during the winter months.

pruning-plant-guide-icon

Pruning & Propagation

Pinch off expired blooms to encourage a longer flowering period. Plant is often tossed out after blooming because it will go through a dormant period. During this time, low temperatures, less light, and dry soil will help the Anthurium produce more spectacular flowers in the spring and summer. To propagate, plant leaf cuttings from new growth.
