  • Anthuriums do best with a bright, indirect light but not direct sunlight.
  • Water thoroughly, but allow the plant to dry slightly between waterings.
  • Do not over-water as it may cause root damage and yellowing of the leaves.
  • A well-drained soil is important to prevent the rotting of stems and roots.
  • Fertilize the anthurium plant about every other month.
  • Avoid temperature fluctuations. Keep temperatures at or above 60 F. If temperatures dip below this level, the plant will likely suffer.
