👉 Benefits :
- The bedroom plant: The Anthurium rarely has any downtime between blooms, making it a great pick for the bedroom—you can keep it on your sunny windowsill all year round. The more bright indirect light this plant is positioned in, the more beautiful bright ‘flowers’ it will produce! These blooms last about eight weeks each.
- Blooms year round: When properly cared for, anthuriums can bloom year round, with each bloom lasting between two and three months. By mimicking the conditions of their natural rain forest habitat, your anthurium could produce up to six blooms per year.
👉 How to care :
Soil : Anthurium requires a very light, loose medium with a pH around 6.5. If in doubt, use a mixture such as two parts orchid mix, one part peat and one part perlite, or equal parts peat.
Sunshine: Anthurium plants can tolerate all levels of indirect light, but anthurium growing in low light will have fewer flowers and will grow slower. These plants cannot tolerate direct light however, as this can burn the leaves. They grow best in bright, indirect light
Watering: Anthurium care also requires that the soil be free draining but hold some water. Outdoors, plant in a well-drained location. 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.
👉 The takeaway :
If you want a plant that
- Is a house plant and very easy to maintain
- Comes with air-purifying abilities
- Blooms year-round
Then Anthurium is a great pick for you.
