Anthurium Red


Plant Bio

The anthurium genus contains hundreds of tropical plant species, often admired as houseplants for their bright, nearly year-round flowers. Anthurium is native to the tropical rain forests of Central and South America. The Anthurium is characterized by its shiny dark foliage with its heart shaped flowers available in reds, whites and pink variations.

Anthurium plants can tolerate all levels of indirect light. It grows best in bright, indirect light. Anthurium care also requires that the soil be free draining but hold some water. A half and half mix of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer. Anthurium plants don?t like continually moist soil. Make sure to water your anthurium plant regularly, but don?t over-water. Only water your anthurium when the soil is dry to the touch. The plant is susceptible to root rot, so too much water can cause the roots to die. Care of anthurium plants does not require too much fertilizer. To get the best blooms, use a fertilizer that has a higher phosphorus number, once every three or four months. An anthurium growing in your garden or home will reward you with wonderful, long-lasting flowers.
