Originally found in the Andes of Colombia and Ecuador, this beauty enjoys a warm spot in the home with a little extra moisture. Your anthurium prefers bright indirect light. Direct sun can burn the leaves. The more light the plant receives, the more flowers it will produce.

Water when the top 50-75% of the soil is dry. Water until the liquid runs out through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and pour out any water that has accumulated in the saucer. Your anthurium loves a humid environment, so feel free to spray daily. Use a gravel tray or humidifier in the winter months when the air is drier.

Your anthurium prefers temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and no lower than 60 degrees at night. Avoid placing plants near vents and fans of heating and air conditioning units. Feed once a month in spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for houseplants.
