As soon as possible after receiving the pot with the AquaForWeeks Anthurium place it in a bright place, preferably a warm place in partial shade (no direct sunlight) and best not above a central heating radiator. Water the plant immediately and fill the entire reservoir.
Try to avoid draughts.
During the summer Anthurium requires plenty of water, keep the compost from drying out. The plants in special AquaForWeeks pots do not need watering as often, once every 3, 4 or even 5 weeks is suffice, this depends on the conditions of your living room.
The flamingo plant loves a high humidity level so place preferably in a warm place but not above radiators. They enjoy a daily spray using either rainwater or tepid water.
During the growing period add plant food for flowering plants regularly when watering, but do not feed in the winter. In the winter keep the Anthurium in a cool and dry place for about six weeks. During this time new flower buds will form.
Pot up your Anthurium (Flamingo Flower plant) every 2 or 3 years in special Anthurium potting compost (this is airier than ‘normal’ potting compost).
Anthurium is native to the tropical rainforests of South and Central America.
Anthurium is classified under Araceae. The name is from the Greek anthos (flower) and oura (tail). Its common name is Flamingo Flower plant.
The flower is actually a spathe which surrounds the small inconspicuous flowers that develop along the centre spadix! They last a long time because of the ripening process of the berries on the spike which takes about 6 months.
