In 2020, houseplants are no longer missing in the interior. Many people do not only have special and trendy plants in their living room, but also in their kitchen, toilet, bedroom and bathroom. They all have their own specific care methods. An important trend this year are, for example, the green, non-flowering plants with large leaves, which are fairly easy to care for. The plants that were trendy 25 years ago, are trendy again. But what if you would like to have the cosiness of colourful plants, but you do not have the green thumb that is needed for this?
If you have a green thumb, you can handle plants well. It is an expression. Unfortunately, the majority of people that buy plants, don’t have a green thumb. Some go overboard with the result that every plant they purchase, eventually dies. Fortunately, these are the exceptions.
But what if you like colourful plants, but do not have the knowledge and time to care for different kind of plants? What is a handy plant to take home? Which plant is easy to take care of? Soon we can conclude that it is an Anthurium pot plant.
Anthurium pot plants
Anthuriums are beautiful subtropical plants and are available in many different colours. The plants come from the tropics and are therefore real heat lovers, they love to be at 20°C- 22°C. They prefer to be in a bright place and do well in high humidity, so the bathroom is also a good place. They don’t like drafts and direct, bright sunlight
The Anthurium pot plant is best watered twice a week in summer, once a week in winter. Try to make sure that the soil is never dry, but that the plant also does not drown. It is therefore not the intention that water formation occurs at the bottom of the pot.
Is your Anthurium in the living room? There, the humidity, especially in winter with the heating on, can be on the low side. Therefore, spray your plant with some water every now and then. This increases the chance of new flowers and helps the plant to stay healthy!
If you prune your Anthurium a few times a year, it will last even longer. By cutting away wilted flowers and old ugly leaves, your plant will save energy. And it can then use that energy to make new leaves and flowers!
If the Anthurium has become too large for its pot, you can repot the plant. Do this preferably in the spring, because the lighter days help to stimulate the budding.
All in all, actions that are easy to handle for people without a green thumb. This way you create a colourful interior with little effort. And to top it all, Anthurium plants also purify the air! What else do you want…
