Anthurium 'White' | Flamingo Flower

Asch Building


Origin: Costa Rica

Height: 12-18 inches (30-45 cm). Flower stalks may need staking.

Light: Bright light, but no direct sun. Plants that don't bloom aren't getting enough light. Move the plant near a window where it gets bright light, out of direct sun.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist in spring and summer, while plant is actively growing. Water less often in fall and winter, but don't allow potting medium to dry out. Yellow leaves may be a sign of overwatering.

Humidity: Moderate to high. Use a humidity tray or humidifier if the relative humidity drops below 50%.

Temperature: Average to warm 65-75°F/18-24°C. Flamingo Flower grows best with even temperatures year-round. Exposing it to temperatures below 60°F/10°C can cause its leaves to turn yellow. It doesn't like drafts either; it's a good idea to keep Anthurium away from air vents.

Soil: Peat moss based potting mix with added perlite. African violet potting mix is ideal.

Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks in spring and summer with a high-phosphorus water-soluble fertilizer, diluted by half. 

Propagation: Divide crowded clumps when repotting, and pot them separately in small pots. Spring is the best time to start new plants. High humidity will give them a good start. Your young plants should begin flowering in about a year.
