Anthurium Purple

$18

The Anthurium, also known as the Tail Flower, Flamingo Flower, Laceleaf and Anthurium Andraeanum, is the world’s longest blooming houseplant – blooms can last up to eight weeks, and new ones will pop up often. Generally found in the wild across the warmest parts of South America and the Caribbean, the anthurium is one of the most striking houseplants. The vivid red, yellow and other colours are not actually its flower, but a spathe - a brightly-coloured leaf! The actual flowers are tiny little things on the spike in the middle of the spathe.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day, like somewhere shady outside or inside behind a window.
The minimum light requirement for them is 3 - 6 feet away from the nearest light source. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window.
They need to be watered when the first 1 - 2 inches of soil is dry. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you do the watering.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
To encourage flowering, dilute a liquid fertilizer to half-strength and feed the plant once in spring and again in summer.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
