Is the Pink Anthurium the right plant for me?
Anthuriums belong to the aroid family, along with many other plants including Orchids. They can be found growing on trees up in the canopy. They prefer warm humid environments, and evenly moist to slightly dry soil. They do best when they are checked once a week and given moderate care and attention.
Pet Friendly: No, this plant is not pet-friendly.
Location Suggestions: Humidity is KEY! These plants excel in bathrooms with windows or nestled beside a humidifier or aroma diffuser! Try them in the living room or bedroom for a pop of color.
Prefers bright, indirect light with no direct sun. The direct sun will burn the Anthuriums’ leaves and flowers.
Allow the top 2” of the soil to dry in between watering. Anthuriums are susceptible to root rot.
This can be done every 12-18 months. Choose a pot that is 2” larger in diameter than the original pot.
Use a well-draining, high organic matter soil mix.
Average from 65°F - 75°F
Follow a monthly fertilizing schedule when the plant is actively growing. In most cases, this is in the spring and summer. Use a balanced fertilizer - this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same. Ex: 10-10-10. High phosphorus will promote blooms.
Wipe the leaves every few weeks to remove debris
Remove dead flower heads at the base of the plant to encourage more flowers.
