Anthuriums are cheery, exotic flowering houseplants that offer glossy, green heart-shaped leaves topped by heart-shaped pink, red, or white long-lasting blooms. Happily, anthuriums bloom almost all year long if they get enough light, fertilizer, and moisture.
Anthuriums are great air purifying plants.
Plant Diameter: 6"
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 stagnation of calcium and nitrogen in the soil.
Pro-tip: In winter, Anthurium plants need a six week rest period at a 60 degrees with little water. This allows the plant to flower again in Spring.
Anthurium plants are toxic to pets. Typically, ingestion will result in swelling of the lips and tongue, and stomach irritation with possible vomiting.
