Plant Care Tips

Planting Instructions
For plants that have filled their current containers, select a container one inch wider than the container your plant is currently growing in. Plants that haven't filled out the soil in their current pots don't need a larger container, but can be repotted into a container of the same size or slipped into a cache pot to hide the plastic nursery container. Select a potting soil suitable for indoor plants, one that is light and drains freely. If the soil is dry, add enough water and mix it in to make the soil just damp. Add enough soil to the new container so that the top of the root ball will sit a bit below the rim of the container, 1/4-inch for smaller plants up to an inch for very large plants. This will help prevent spills when you water. Remove your plant from its old container and gently tease the roots from the surface of the root ball. Place the plant in the new container, adding or removing soil to bring the top of the root ball to the desired level. Add soil around the root ball, firming it in lightly. Water in to settle the soil, adding more if needed. Water your newly repotted plant lightly for the next several weeks while the roots are growing into the new soil. Indoor plants can be especially prone to rot from overwatering at this point.
General Care Description
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.

Effort of Care

Low

Soil Type

Use a rich, organic, loose potting soil that contains some mulch and sphagnum moss for Anthurium plants. The soil needs to drain quickly to prevent root-rot so you may have to add some sand to the mix.

Humidity

High

Temperature

The higher the humidity the happier an Anthurium plant is.

Growth Rate

Moderate

Light Needs

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 Needs

Anthuriums like to be watered thoroughly, though be careful not to over water as this can cause root damage. Allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry before watering again.

Disease and Pests

Anthurium plants are susceptible to Mealy Bugs, scale, Aphids, and thrip. The new tender growth is especially vulnerable. Fungal and bacterial plant diseases are a problem for Anthurium plants because of the high humidity and warmth they require. Keep the leaves dry and provide good air circulation around an Anthurium plant to prevent plant diseases.
