This Anthurium lives up to its nickname, the flamingo flower. Rarely without their showy blooms, Anthuriums are known as the world’s longest blooming houseplant. Each bloom can last up to eight weeks, and new ones will pop up often. These aren’t actual flowers, but modified waxy leaves. Anthuriums flourish and bloom best in bright indirect light.
Anthurium plant care is fairly easy, which is one reason it is a popular houseplant. It’s not for every home, though, as anthurium is highly toxic to humans and pets. If you have pets or small children, reconsider growing anthurium, or keep it out of reach.
Let your anthurium’s soil or potting mix dry out between waterings. Only water an 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 best light for anthurium plants is bright and indirect. Place it by a bright window with another plant or sheer curtains to filter the light. It will tolerate low light but will not bloom as prolifically. Too much direct light can scorch the leaves.
