HOW TO CARE FOR ANTHURIUMS
by alex worley
When properly cared for, anthuriums can bloom year-round.
Here's how to look after these beautiful flowers >>
Estimated time: 30 seconds
1. Propagate CUTTINGS
There are many ways to start anthuriums, but cuttings are my favorite.
You’ll have flowers much sooner than you would from seedlings.
2. Proper light = BLOOMS!
Anthuriums are sensitive to light changes. They'll frown and won't bloom in shade.
Give them plenty of bright indirect light to encourage blooms.
3. Keep the soil MOIST
Also called the flamingo lily, this houseplant likes constant hydration.
Avoid overwatering. Just give it water when the top inch of soil dries out. Misting is also fine.
4. Feed with PHOSPHORUS
Nitrogen fertilizers promote foliage, but a phosphorus fertilizer will promote blooms.
I recommend the E-Z Gro blossom booster 10-30-20 fertilizer.
5. Keep it
Anthuriums won't bloom in cold rooms.
Ideal day temps should be somewhere in the 60-85°F range, while nighttime temps shouldn’t drop below 60°F.
