How Often to Water An Anthurium
Anthuriums, crystallinums, and clarinerves all like it when it is damp. Once the top inch or three centimeters are dry, give them water. Check on them twice a week during the summer, when they will need a lot of water.
During the summer, you can give your anthuriums a meal high in nitrogen once a month. To keep the leaves from getting burned, mix them with twice as much water as suggested.
Anthuriums need compost that drains well, and the best kind is a mix of orchid mix and peat-based compost.
When To Repot An Anthurium
When they get too big for their current pot, you can move them to a bigger one in the spring. Because the roots don’t grow very quickly, you won’t have to do this every year.
Anthuriums, crystallinums, and clarinerviums do best in places that are humid. They need 80% humidity, so spray them every day. Anthuriums are plants that do well in places with a lot of moisture.
Anthuriums grow best when the temperature is between 18°C and 25°C (64°F and 77°F).
