Anthurium

Anthurium

De Anthurium, die wij ook wel Flamingoplant noemen, is een constant bloeiende plant. Hiermee bedoelen we dat de plant het hele jaar door in bloei staat. Erg bijzonder! De Anthurium is familie van de Aracea en vindt zijn oorsprong in Zuid-Amerika. Hij bestaat maar liefst uit 600 soorten. De Anthurium kent niet alleen bloeiende soorten, al maakt dit voor de onderhoud niet uit. Anthuriums zijn namelijk erg eenvoudig in onderhoud.

How do you take care of the Anthurium?

The right location

The Anthurium likes to stand in a sunny spot. The plant prefers not to stand in direct sunlight. Please note that not all types of indirect sunlight are equally well tolerated. The Anthurium prefers a spot next to a window on the west or east. If an Anthurium gets too much sunlight, the plant will have yellow leaves. Will the plant get too little light? Then the flowering Anthuriums will not flower at all. It is also possible that the Anthurium will grow green flowers. That is anything but the intention!

Watering the Anthurium

The Anthurium consumes remarkably little water. Although the plant prefers to stand constantly in slightly moist potting soil. We recommend watering once a week in the summer. In winter you can keep this number, but give a smaller amount of water. This way you always keep the soil slightly moist, and avoid root rot. Root rot occurs as soon as there is more water than the Anthurium can hold. So? Little water, but with a high frequency. Do you want to pamper the Anthurium? Then use a plant sprayer on a regular basis. Makes the plant happy!

Plant nutrition

The Anthurium consumes quite a lot of nourishment for its flowers. After 6 to 8 weeks the entire nutrient supply is exhausted. We therefore recommend feeding the Anthurium once a month from spring until the end of summer. You can use plant nutrition especially for flowering plants. It is best to check the amount of plant nutrition on the packaging.

Repotting

Repotting the Anthurium is certainly not necessary every year. The plant is not such a fast grower. This is because most of the energy is in the flowers. We do recommend repotting the Anthurium immediately after purchase. In addition, repotting once every 2 years is enough. And when the flowerpot becomes too small of course. Repotting the Anthurium gives the plant new nutrients and more room for root growth. The airier soil is also very good for the flowing water. The best period to repot is spring.

Air purifying function

The Anthurium is a very air-purifying plant. In NASA’s list of the most air-purifying plants, the Anthurium is therefore very high. The plant opens its stomata during the day to convert CO2 into oxygen. Bonus!

Is the Anthurium poisonous?

The youngest leaves and the flowers of the Anthurium can be slightly poisonous. Suppose your pet has taken a bite, you will soon notice this. After eating the Anthurium, in most cases nausea and vomiting will occur. In case of suspicion, contact a doctor immediately.

Diseases and peculiarities

Good news! The Anthurium is not susceptible to pests and diseases. What of course can always occur are mourning flies and root rot. Although both cases are easy to treat. Doesn’t the Anthurium suffer from vermin? Then you can use pesticides.
