Anthuriums are some of our favorite flora. Their cheery silhouette and wide array of colors make them the perfect addition to any interior. With glossy, heart-shaped leaves topped with red, pink or white blooms, these beauties will bloom year-round with the right mix of light, water, and fertilizer.
Here are some of our favorite tips for keeping our Anthurium blooming all year!
Light: Bright, diffused light. With excessive light, the leaves twist, their color fades.
Water: Soil must be constantly moist, in summer it should be watered every 4 days. Use warm soft water. With insufficient watering, the leaves begin to twist and dry up. In winter, watering is limited to 1 time per week, when the leaves begin to form, the soil must dry between two waterings. You can not allow water to stagnate in the pot and water on the leaves, which can form spots.
Fertilizer: During the growing season, every 15-20 days with a liquid fertilizer, diluted twice. The cesspool is not well tolerated by the stagnation of calcium and nitrogen in the soil.
Pro-tip: In winter, Anthurium plants need a six week rest period at 60 degrees with little water. This allows the plant to flower again in Spring.
