Anthurium painted in the growing pot
The Anthurium comes from the tropical rain forests of
Central and South America and belongs to the Araceae
family, which also includes the Dieffenbachia, the Philodendron
and the Spathiphyllum among others. The Anthurium should be
kept at a temperature of ± 20 ºC (room temperature) all year
round. Make sure the Anthurium gets plenty of light but do not
place it in direct sunlight. Water the plant with softened
(non-calciferous) water. Ideally watering should be done with
luke warm water to prevent dry leaf tips and rusting on the leaves
and flowers. Make sure that the potting compost is kept moist but
not too wet. Feed the plant with plant food once every ten days
from March to August. To keep the plant fresh the leaves can be
sprayed with softened (non-calciferous) water, but keep the flowers
dry to prevent rusting on the petals. The plant can be repotted into a
larger pot once every two to three years.
The best tips for caring for your plant:
Good light, but no bright sunlight.
Ideal temperature 18 - 22 ºC.
Keep damp, compost must not dry out.
Spray with water once a month.
Apply fertiliser once a month.
Remove dead heads of flowers.
