Cutting and care of Anthurium

The Anthurium is very easy to maintain, as it requires very little care to stay beautiful for a long time.

Brightness: good brightness, no direct sunlight. Tolerates shade, but may not flower.

Location: Do not place near a hot or cold draft, likes temperatures between 20 and 22.

Loves good humidity, as in bathrooms.

Watering : Wait until the soil is dry. A sign that the anthurium is over or under watered, the tips of the leaves will turn brown. In winter, watering is reduced, like most plants.

Flowering: With proper maintenance and regular fertilization, the potted anthurium produces new flowers throughout the year. It does, however, experience three-month flowering cycles, followed by a few months of no flowering, and then three months of flowering again. If the plant has shiny leaves and produces new flowers, then most likely it is in favorable conditions and therefore will bloom for many years.

Maintenance : remove dead leaves as you go, without pulling on the stems, cut.

Repotting: At the beginning of spring ideally or when buying. Avoid repotting when the plant is in bloom. We avoid repotting in winter and in summer during hot weather.

Cutting an anthurium

To do this, cut off all the leaves close to the main stem. Then cut the main stem into several sections, all of which should have at least one eye. Then insert these sections vertically in a light mixture half sand, half peat. Keep the potting soil slightly moist and preferably at a temperature between 25 and 30 degrees. After a few weeks, the cuttings begin to form roots and leaves. Once the new plants are large enough, you can repot them into larger pots.
