The best spot for a happy plant
Anthuriums like to stand in a well-lighted place, but don’t like direct sunlight. When the plant is positioned in the dark, it will give fewer flowers. They love warmth and are happiest at a temperature between 20°C and 22°C. The minimum temperature for both the pot plant and cut flower is 16°C. Keep them away from draughts and don’t place them close to a hot radiator. Anthuriums really prefer high humidity, so for example in the bathroom is where they feel most at home.
Anthurium plant care tips
In the winter period, the Anthurium plant should be watered once a week. In the summer, it can be watered more frequently, but twice a week should be enough. Do you want to pamper your plant? Spray it now and then with a plant spray, so that it imagines its in the tropics. The Anthurium pot plant and cut flower are very easy to look after, as they need very little attention to keep looking beautiful for a long time. There are a few extra Anthurium plant care tips and tricks we’d like to share with you, so that you’ll enjoy your Anthurium plant or cut flowers even longer.
Anthurium cut flower care tips
After buying the flowers, cut 5 cm off the end of the stalk and put the flower(s) in a clean vase with tap water. Anthurium flowers are very clean and keep the water clear. They don’t need cut flower food, but do tolerate it. So with bouquets of mixed flowers, you can add some cut flower food without any problem. Refresh the water in the vase of the Anthuriums about once a week, and cut one centimeter off the stem at the same time. This will ensure the Anthurium easily blooms for two to three weeks. Long-lasting enjoyment, without dirty vases or a lot of hassle!
Repotting an Anthurium plant
If your Anthurium has grown too big for its pot, repotting is a good idea. Do this preferably in spring, because the lighter days stimulate the formation of buds. Place the plant in a pot with a diameter of at least 20% wider than the previous one, and use special anthurium soil to do this. If you are going to repot your plant, mix in a bit of Anthurium feed at the same time so that the plant has a bit in reserve for growing.
