CARE INFO

SUN

The Anthurium requires bright and filtered or indirect light. While it can adapt to lower light levels, south and east-facing windows offer many hours of bright light that increase the number of blooms on the plant. Direct light will burn the leaves.

WATER

Maintain a consistent watering schedule, repeating once the top 50%-75% of soil has dried. Always allow water to flow out of the drainage hole and discard any excess. Use of non-tap water is recommended.

AIR

Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. You can provide a regular boost of humidity by:


  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Misting the leaves 4-7x per week with non-tap water

PET FRIENDLY

Keep out of reach from curious pets. These are toxic when ingested. 

AESTHETIC

The tropical Anthurium grows a single green, heart-shaped leaf on each of its tall stems. Depending on how much light it’s exposed to, it will produce heart-shaped blooms of a red-pink hue. Depending on their conditions, they will produce blooms a few times throughout the year. This compact houseplant remains under 2 feet tall and can be propagated often to add even more Anthuriums to your home. 

HEALTH BENEFITS

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 


  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus

The Anthurium is one of the greenest air purifiers, producing oxygen while absorbing the most common indoor toxins through its leaves. Dust the leaves regularly for optimal photosynthesis and shine. 

SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS

The Anthurium symbolizes kindness, remembered by its leaf and flower shape that remind us to extend an open heart. Whether we need this reminder ourselves or want to share this message with a loved one, Anthuriums are sure to spread warmth + uplift the mood.

OUR RECS

We recommend a sturdy clay or ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture retention for the Anthurium. When repotting, use a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  


Ideal soil is a well-draining mix with aerating and moisture-retaining amendments such as perlite, bark, and/or sand.
