|Description||Anthurium also called flamingo flowers for their unique tropical shape and bright red, green, and white colors, they can constantly bloom for long periods making them delightful indoor plants year-round. The blooming varieties are distinctive for their colorful, heart shaped waxy spathes and red or yellow tail like flower spikes.Flowering anthurium needs bright, indirect light (direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and flowers!). Low light will slow growth, dull the color, and produce fewer, smaller “flowers.” Place your anthuriums in a setting where they will receive at least 6 hours of bright indirect sunlight each day.Water thoroughly when the few inches of the soil becomes dry to the touch, stopping when water starts draining from the drainage holes. Avoid over watering (anthurium roots are susceptible to rot!). Anthurium are epiphytes, meaning they do not necessarily need soil to grow! They use the moisture from the air and nutrients from their host (usually a tree or surrounding dead plant material. Their potting soil should contain more drainage materials (compared to soils for most indoor plants), such as wood chips, perlite, coarse sand, or pumice, to allow the water to drain quickly. Nutrition for pot cultivation it is advisable to apply 5g of any complex fertilizer in 500ml of water (1%) once in a month.Anthuriums can also efficiently take up nutrients thorough foliage.Foliar application of 0.1% Urea at monthly intervals is found to be beneficial.Adequate levels of calcium and magnesium are also necessary for optimum growth deficiency of calcium often results in color break in the spathes. Application of 5g of cano3 at monthly intervals stabilizes the spathe color.After fertilizer application thorough watering is essential to prevent accumulation of excess salts in the root zone,which otherwise lead to scorching of roots and leaves. Propagation of anthurium can be done through seeds ,cuttings and suckers.|
