Anthurium Andraeanum (White Winter)

  • Anthurium is a genus of more than 800 species found in the New World tropics from Mexico to northern Argentina and Uruguay.
  • The Anthurium is also known as Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower (Flamingo Lily) or Tail Flower.
  • Anthuriums are grown for their brightly colored flower spathes and their ornamental leaves.
  • The flower has a spadix called the rat’s tail that tapers off from the flower, giving it its characteristic appearance.
  • The Flamingo lily is a native of Central and South America, mainly Colombia.
SOIL
  • Anthuriums prefer a mix suited for epiphytes.
  • Something which is coarse, porous & rich.
  • Use 1/2 peat moss or coco coir & 1/2 orchid bark; cymbidium orchid mix.
FERTILIZER
  • Anthuriums like phosphorous.
  • It’s good for the roots & flowers of a plant as well as the overall growth & health.
  • The letters on a bottle or box of fertilizer are N-P-K.
  • Phosphorous is the middle number so it’s best to have that be the highest number when it comes to anthuriums.
  • You don’t want to fertilize houseplants in late fall or winter because that’s their time for rest.
  • Don’t over-fertilize your anthuriums because salts build-up & can burn the roots of the plant.
  • This will show up as brown spots on the leaves.
  • Avoid fertilizing a houseplant that is stressed, ie. bone dry or soaking wet.
LIGHT
  • They prefer moderate or medium-light & need this exposure to bloom.
  • Near but not in a window is good.
  • If the light is low, your plant will show little if any growth & there won’t be any flowering.
  • Anthuriums are epiphytic just like orchids & bromeliads.
  • They grow under the cover of other plants.
  • If the light is too strong (like a hot, west exposure close to a window), your plant will burn.
WATER
  • The more light & warmth, the more often yours will need watering.
  • Because they’re epiphytes, don’t keep your anthurium constantly wet.
  • They’re subject to root rot.
  • Let it almost completely dry out before watering it again.
