Anthurium thrive in medium to bright indirect light. Avoid lighting extremes, such as direct sun and dark corners. Direct sunlight can burn these plants, causing damage to the foliage.
Water and Soil
Anthuriums prefer to be kept evenly moist and do not like their soil to dry out entirely. Like most all plants, they are susceptible to root rot if their soil remains too wet or soggy. This plant should be watered once the top layer of the soil becomes dry. Amending a standard well-draining potting soil with peat moss will help to keep your plants roots evenly moist, while the addition of perlite will ensure that proper drainage and root aeration are provided.
Temperature and Humidity
This plant prefers room temperatures between 60 degrees F and 85 degrees F. Temperatures shouldn’t drop below 60 degrees as this could damage the foliage. Cold, drafty areas should be avoided. Anthurium prefers moderate to high humidity levels.
