If you are looking for an easy-care, low-maintenance houseplant that blooms and is hard to kill, look no further than an anthurium lily. Learn how to grow and care for these beautiful flowering tropical houseplants with these simple tips.
These tropical plants prefer bright indirect light. They should not be placed in direct sunlight as it can cause the leaves to scorch.
Anthuriums also require well-draining moist soil that is allowed to dry out between waterings.
These plants also benefit from regular fertilization but don’t need much to flower. During the growing season, I regularly use a slow-release fertilizer that lasts a few months
They enjoy some humidity too. So if you have dry air in your home, you can increase the humidity level around your anthurium is by placing it on a humidity tray of pebbles filled with water, using a humidifier, or misting the leaves regularly.
But you can also group several houseplants together to create a small humid microclimate.
The ideal conditions for anthuriums are warm environments, with temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
So keep your anthurium lily away from cold drafts, particularly during the cold winter months.
During summer months, I bring my anthurium plant outdoors where it can enjoy warm temperatures and humid conditions in a protected area on the front porch.
