Anthurium is a genus of around 1,000 perennial plants native to Central America, northern South America, and the Caribbean.
While they can be grown outdoors in the garden in warm climates, anthuriums are good indoor plants and are more often grown as houseplants or in greenhouses since they have particular care needs.
1. How often do you water an anthurium?
Your anthurium will do best when the soil has a chance to dry out in between waterings. Too much or too frequent watering can lead to root rot, which could severely affect the long-term health of your plant. For best results, water your anthurium with just six ice cubes or a half cup of water once a week.
2.Does anthurium need sunlight?
Light. Flowering Anthurium needs bright, indirect light (direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and flowers!). Low light will slow growth, dull the color, and produce fewer, smaller “flowers.” Place your anthuriums in a setting where they will receive at least 6 hours of bright indirect sunlight each day.
3. Where should I place my anthurium?
Anthuriums like to stand in a very well lighted place, but do not like direct sunlight. When the plant stands where it is too dark, it will give fewer flowers. They love the warmth and are happiest at a temperature between 20°C and 22°C.
