Anthurium plant care


During the summer, it’s best to water your anthurium pot plant twice a week because of the heat. During the winter, once a week is enough. Make sure the soil always is a bit moist, but not wet. Because too much water can cause yellow leaf tips.

Spray it with water

The humidity in the living room can be on the low side, especially in the winter when the heating is on. So if your anthurium is placed in the living room, occasionally spray a little water on their leaves. This will remove any pests and dust from your plants, and will help to keep them healthy and make their leaves look nice and shiny too.

By pruning your anthurium plant now and then, it will last even longer. Remove any discolored or dead leaves and cut wilted or dead blossoms down to the base of the stem. Otherwise they will draw energy from the plant, and that energy can is in better use for producing new leaves and flowers!

If the anthurium plant has become too large for its pot, you can repot it. Preferably dot this in spring, because the lighter days help stimulate the formation of buds. Take a new plant pot that has a diameter of at least 20% larger than the old one, to ensure that the plant can still grow in there. Use fresh potting soil, using just enough to bring the top of the anthurium’s rootball to about an inch below the rim of the container. Once repotted, the anthurium plant should sit at the same soil level it was situated in the original pot.
