Anthurium

Anthurium "Falmingo Plant"

 

Origin: Tropical rainforests of Colombia, Guatemala and the Amazon region in Brazil.

Botanical Name: Anthurium Andraeanum

The “flowers” of the Anthurium are some of the longest-lasting on earth, which means that dazzling color will last in your home for months.
The Anthurium symbolizes hospitality and inspires happiness and abundance.

☀️  Light: 

Place your Anthurium in a warm, well-lit spot. The more light the plant receives, the more flowers your plant will produce, but never expose it to direct sunlight.

💧 Water: 

Keep the soil lightly moist during the growing season from March through September. Water your Anthurium well and then allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering causes yellow leaf tips and under-watering causes brown leaf tips.

☁️  Humidity: 

Anthurium loves a humid environment, so feel free to mist every day. Use a pebble tray or a humidifier during the winter months when the air tends to be much drier.

🌡 Temperature:

Prefers temperatures between 18-26°C during the day and no cooler than 15°C degrees at night. Avoid placing your plants near heating and air conditioning sources.

🧉 Food: 

Use a balanced fertilizer or one a little higher in nitrogen for Anthurium plants. Feed monthly in the spring and summer, when Anthurium plants are actively growing.

🐾  Toxicity: 

Anthuriums are toxic to pets and humans. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and skin irritation, stomach pain and irritation with possible vomiting.

➕ Additional Tips:

Quickly remove fading or dying flowers as soon as they appear. This helps the plant focus its energy on new growth. Give your Anthurium a six-week rest during the winter. Lower temperatures, less light, and drier soil during this time help an Anthurium produce more flowers in the spring and summer.
