Anthurium Care

These exotic houseplants have glossy heart-shaped leaves with a beautiful bloom that comes in pink, red, purple, or white. They can bloom all year long with enough light and water. The Anthurium originated in the South American rain forest so they thrive in high-humidity environments with a decent amount of shade.

Lighting: Lighting: Anthurium plants like as much bright indirect light as possible, but no direct sun. If there is insufficient light, an Anthurium plant produces fewer flowers and becomes thin and straggly, as the leaves stretch toward the light.

Water: Water Anthurium plants well and then allow the top two or three inches of soil to dry out before watering again. Over-watering causes yellow leaf tips and under- watering causes brown leaf tips.

Temperature: Anthurium plants prefer temperatures 75°-85° during the day and about 10° cooler at night. Temperatures below 50° slow the growth of leaves and flowers.
