Growing a Compelling Plant in Your Backyard
Anthurium is one of the most popular tropical flowers with about six-month long or more vase life. Some of the Anthuriums are flowering varieties and some have deeply veined foliage. They can grow up to 15-20 inches high, depending on the size of the spathe. Their leaves are usually large, borne on long slender stalks, and attractively multicolored with yellow, red, pink, orange, or even white and green for cultivated species.
Most of these plants can only be grown in greenhouse and botanical gardens where the temperature is at or above 60 °F, for instance A. andreanum, A. scherzerianum, A. crystallinum, and A. faustinomirandae. Extra attention and care are needed to grow them indoor or in domestic living, as there is not a particular Anthurium adapted to lower-than-room-temperature environment.
To grow an Anthurium, plant it in moist and well-drained potting soil and let them thrive in bright, indirect light. Foliage Anthurium may grow aerial roots vigorously and exposed to the surface, you may gently push them into the soil from time to time. To propagate this plant, divide the plant during annual repotting, or cut the tip or stem.
The exposed roots of older foliage can be cut off at the soil level, eventually the roots will grow new stems and leaves. When growing Anthurium, it is common to see a phenomenon that the flowers of the plant fade to green. It is due to insufficient proper light intensity and duration. However, need not to worry as this not a big matter. Just expose your plant indirectly to the sunlight will do. Or else, you may enjoy the brilliant green spathes and the glossy foliage as just another lovely aspect of this plant.
