Anthurium comes from tropical tropical mountain forests of South and Central America. It usually occupies the lowest and darkest tier. Anthurium, like all Aroids, is poisonous. Its juice contains toxins that cause irritation of the skin and mucous membranes.
There are many varieties of anthurium. Mostly these are grassy forms or shrubs. There are also climbing epiphytes, the roots of which hang from the trunks of trees, reaching a length of several meters. Among the anthuriums there are original specimens: some grow only on rocks in the middle of mountain rivers, while others can survive only in the immediate vicinity of a colony of wood ants.
Anthuriums are loved for a bright inflorescence consisting of a cob and bedspread. Last many consider it a flower. However, this is only a modified bract. It is dense, often glossy and painted in different colors. The spectacular veil plays an important role - due to its bright appearance, it attracts pollinators to the cob, on which there are small nondescript flowers.
The cobs and bedspread of anthurium are painted in different colors. Sometimes they are two-colored: the lower part is white and the tip is green. Anthuriums growing in the wild have a blanket and an ear that is pale green, orange, white, pink, yellow, red. Thanks to breeders at room varieties even more shades.
Anthurium fruits - juicy berries with one or more seeds. They usually also have a decorative appearance: tight-fitting, shiny, a variety of shades.
Anthurium leaves have a heart-shaped, oblong or rounded shape. They are located on fairly long and strong petioles. Leaf size varies by variety, sometimes reaching a meter in length.
There are about 900 species of anthuriums. Indoor varieties can be divided into three main groups:
- Beautiful flowering species. Used not only in pot culture, but also for cutting. The brightest representatives are Anthurium Andre, Sierra, Turenza and Scherzer.
- Species with color patterns on the leaves and a short climbing trunk. One of the representatives is Anthurium Crystal, Varok and Majestic.
- Decorative leafy species. They have long stems and green leaves. Representatives are the Anthurium Baker and Lazyaschy.
Each grade has its own characteristics. So, Anthurium Amalia has a subtle scent, Otazu has a fetid odor, which makes this species not so popular.
Peculiarities of care
Anthurium needs good lighting, but it does not tolerate direct sun. From his rays leaves quickly get burned, losing a decorative look. On the north window the anthurium is pulled out, on the south one it burns. The optimal location of the plant in the house - the east or west window. On the south side, it is permissible to contain anthurium only if one of the following conditions is met:
- it will stand a meter from the windowsill,
- there are blinds on the windows,
- a sprawling tree grows nearby, which will scatter the sun's rays,
- Autumn or winter has come.
In winter, he needs additional lighting with lamps.
Anthurium loves warmth and fears drafts. A suitable temperature in the summer is 20–25 ° C, in the winter - 16–18 ° C. Anthurium tolerates heat. However, lowering the temperature stops its growth.
Do not place the plant in close proximity to radiators or other heating devices. They desiccate the soil inside the pot, dehydrating the anthurium.
Anthurium comes from the humid tropics, and therefore needs to be watered enough. In summer and spring - once every three days, and in autumn and winter - once a week. For watering use a little warm water, so as not to chill the soft roots of anthurium, and be sure to soft. When there is excess lime in the plant, the leaves turn yellow. Soften water by settling for two to three days, boiling, filtering or adding neutralizers, which are sold in flower shops.
It is important not to flood the plant! After watering, excess water from the pan is removed.
Given that the anthurium comes from the tropics, at home it needs a high humidity. Anthurium leaves like regular spraying, but the flowers do not tolerate the ingress of water. From this inflorescence become covered with spots, and then die.
To increase the humidity, sphagnum moss is placed on top of the soil and periodically sprayed. This provides sufficient moisture to the air roots of anthurium. A similar result will bring the use of pebbles or expanded clay in the pallet or placed in a pot near the plant.
Once in 14-20 days, anthurium is useful to arrange a hygienic shower. It serves as a prevention against the appearance of pests.
For good growth, anthurium requires:
- weakly acidic
- moisture absorbing
- nutritious soil.
Flower shops offer both universal and special earth compositions for anthurium. Some growers prefer to grow "flamingo flower" in the ground for orchids. Anthurium roots in this substrate get enough oxygen. However, in the bark there are catastrophically few nutrients, which is why the plant weakens and languishes over time.
You can prepare the best earth mixture for anthurium with your own hands. It is enough to mix:
- 2 pieces of humus,
- 1 part peat,
- 1 piece of leafy ground
- 0.5 parts of sand.
For breathability, sphagnum moss, pieces of cones and bricks, charcoal, and pine bark are added to the mixture. The fraction of the solid fraction should be at least 15% of the total soil.
Anthurium is great for growing hydroponically. For this purpose, expanded clay or sphagnum is used. With this method of cultivation, the temperature in the room should not fall below + 18oC.
In the period of active vegetation and flowering, anthurium requires additional feeding. Both organic and mineral fertilizers will be suitable. With the arrival of spring, the anthurium usually comes to life and begins to build up a green mass. In this case, it needs fertilizers with a high nitrogen content. From May to the end of September, fertilizers are used, in the composition of which phosphorus prevails.
Anthurium is fed under the root. After or before this it is important to shed the soil with ordinary water so that the nutrients are better absorbed by the plant and do not burn its delicate roots.
Young specimens are transplanted annually, from the age of five - every two to three years. The optimal time for the event - early spring. Before retirement, the plant will have time to grow stronger over the summer and increase the leaves necessary for photosynthesis and, accordingly, good nutrition.
Anthurium has not too long roots, so a low, but wide pot fits it. The presence of drainage holes.
The soil during planting can not be heavily rammed, otherwise anthurium will be problematic to gain a foothold in it. Dense earth does not allow oxygen to pass through to the roots of the plant.
Diseases and pests of anthurium
Diseases and pests - the result of poor anthurium care. The plant is often attacked by pests. On its lush foliage and roots love to parasitize:
- Shchitovki. Obvious signs - on the outer side of the leaves dark spots were formed, and on the back side - tubercles.
- Spider mite This pest by its activity covers the leaves in spots and twists.
- Nematodes. A sure sign of infection - seals in the form of tubercles on the roots.
If from the first two pests there is salvation in the form of insecticides, then with nematodes, anthurium is waiting for only one way out - isolation and destruction.
The appearance of the disease is immediately reflected in the appearance of the plant. By the nature of the changes, you can find out the cause and eliminate.
- Dark dots on the leaves of anthurium indicate that the plant is cold or has received a sunburn.
- Stains on the leaves may indicate watering with hard water, drafts and low temperature content in the winter.
- The pale or yellow edges of the leaves indicate a lack of light.
- The paleness of the entire leaf plate, a weak increase are true signs of a lack of nutrition.
- Mold on aerial roots signals the gulf of a plant.
The name of the flower literally translates as a flower-tail, because the flower is only the middle in the form of a cob, and the colorful petal around is in fact a sheet-spread. In the people for anthurium there is the name "male happiness", since this plant is usually given to men. The color of the flowers and the types of leaves differs depending on the type and variety of the flower.
Many species of anthurium are cultivated, among which there are both indoor and garden ones. This is a poisonous plant, so do not allow children and animals to come into contact with it, as well as eat fruit.

Anthurium home care
Caring for anthurium at home is not particularly problematic, it just requires some knowledge. The plant needs bright, diffused lighting, it is impossible for direct sunlight to fall on the leaves of a flower.
Anthurium loves heat and therefore the temperature in the spring-summer period should be kept around 25 ° C. Falling below 20 ° C is harmful to the flower and causes illness.
From the beginning of autumn to spring, the temperature is maintained at about 17 ° C. For anthurium Scherber about 13 ° C for two months, and then raised to 17 ° C. This flower is very sensitive to drafts and temperature changes, therefore, it is necessary to lower and raise it smoothly so as not to harm the anthurium.
How to water anthurium
During the growing season, the plant requires good watering, which should be carried out when half of the soil in the container with a flower dries. Fluid for irrigation need separated, tepid, preferably rain. It is better to water on the ground immediately, so that water does not fall on the plant.
Although the flower loves moisture, but only in moderation. It is better to water a little less than throw a rotten anthurium in the trash. In winter, one watering per seven days is enough.
Anthurium needs high humidity (about 90%). In spring and summer, sprinkle with soft water, and place the pot with a flower in a container with raw clay. When spraying, do not allow the drops to touch the flowers, and fall only on the leaves.
How to fertilize anthurium
Anthurium must be fertilized. When performing this operation, remember that the concentration of the top-dressing should be half weaker than indicated on the package. It is necessary to fertilize a flower in the spring-summer period twice a month and a half. Organic fertilizers can also be used.
Excess fertilizer does not like anthurium, so if in doubt, it is better to use a smaller dose. If your plant is sick or you find a pest, then feeding should be stopped until recovery.
In order to ensure high-quality budding and flowering, it is necessary to have a cool temperature in winter. If you give the plant fertilizer and all the necessary care, it will bloom from May to autumn. There are even hybrid varieties that bloom almost the entire year. Lingering inflorescences need to be cut, so young flowers will look better. The leaves are usually not pruned.
To get the seeds you need to self-pollinate the plants by moving the pollen with a brush between the flowers.
Anthurium transplant at home
In the case of buying a plant in a store, it will soon need to be transplanted into a larger pot, since the containers in which the flowers are sold are usually not comfortable for them.
Home anthurium transplantation is performed in spring or summer. Carry it out if the plant "grew" from the old pot, or if the soil changed composition. Young anthuriums need to be replanted every year, and older plants once a couple or three years.
The pot for anthurium should be taken from plastic or glass. If you want a clay container, then it must be covered with glaze inside, otherwise the roots will grow into the pot. It is better not to take too deep and wide tanks, as the water in them will often stagnate.
As for the substrate, you can buy soil for orchids, and you can make the soil for anthurium yourself. It will include peat, leaf and coniferous soil, as well as sand (1: 1: 1: 0.5), in addition to this, charcoal and bark of coniferous trees must be added.
Removing the anthurium from the old container must be carefully, because it has very gentle roots. The rhizome must be cleaned from the soil and remove the rotten parts. Next, it is treated with a Fetolavin and placed in another pot, with drainage already placed.
New soil fall asleep so that it is well settled, and at the end of crush. At the end of the substrate should not reach the top of the pot a couple of centimeters. Unlike many other plants, anthurium can be transplanted during flowering, as it is not very sensitive to this process.
How to divide anthurium during transplantation
When transplanting, reproduction of anthurium can be performed by dividing the bush. Young flowers can not be divided. The first time to carry out this operation is possible only on the 4th year of life of the plant.
Special skills are not required here at all. You just need to divide the bush so that there are leaves and buds on every delenka. Then they just sit down and water.
Care after a transplant does not differ from the usual care at home. The only note is the termination of fertilizing for 15 days after transplantation.
Anthurium of seeds at home
After artificial pollination of flowers, seeds will appear and as soon as they ripen, and it takes up to 10 months, they need to be planted. There is no point in storing seeds, as they quickly lose their germination.
The seeds are taken from the berries, washed and kept for several minutes in a light solution of potassium permanganate. For sowing need light, loose soil with a small ball of perlite at the top. Seeds need to be put on the ground and it is easy to press them into it.
Then this container is covered with glass and the temperature is kept near 22 ° C. After about 15 days, seedlings will appear that, with the formation of two or three true leaves, dive into the soil for adult anthuriums with the addition of mullein. As the seedlings develop, they will need to dive into large pots.
Good flowering of plants from seeds will begin only in the fifth year. Until this bloom will be weak. Note that when breeding seeds the varietal qualities are lost. Due to the latter circumstance, the anthurium is usually propagated by cuttings.
Anthurium reproduction side shoots
The lateral offshoots are separated from the plant and placed in another container with sand or perlite. They are covered with glass and periodically conduct airing and humidification.
The temperature for root formation should be approximately 23 ° C. Next, the seedlings are transplanted into the soil for adult plants.
How to care for anthurium at home
Anthurium prefers bright diffused light and can not stand the direct rays of the sun. Несмотря на то, что это теневыносливое растение и его можно ставить на северное окно, в тени он будет плохо расти и не так активно цвести. Чтобы растение цвело круглогодично, зимой его нужно подсвечивать.

Leaves at the same time remain rare, the plant will not bloom. This does not apply to tank width. The space for the roots in length will be even useful. Comfortably seated, entrenched in his "house", the stems will be extensively covered with foliage.
Fill the pot should be a mixture of soil with expanded clay. It is recommended to change the substrate every year in the spring. This is necessary in order for anthurium to bloom. The flower loves oxygen.

You can purchase a humidifier and place it in a room with a plant. Humidity must be adjusted to 80%. Place a container of water next to Anthurius. Its fumes will create a tropic pet effect.
The flower loves diffused and soft light. Without proper lighting, he can refuse to bloom and will look sluggish. Never let the flower be in direct sunlight. Ultraviolet radiation can burn a tender plant and even destroy it.
The pot should be placed on the windows facing east or north-west. If there are none, put it in partial shade, a meter away from the window.
In winter, when “Man's happiness” especially needs light, place the plant on the window sill, whose windows face south.
Choose a place to put

It is necessary to provide a decent supply of oxygen to the pet's roots. The flower does not like lime. The earth should have a weak acid reaction. It is best to mix wood humus, coal, moss, a substrate for flowering plants, a substrate for azaleas.
To multiply plants need to be approached with great care. An error can cause it to die. Inexperienced housewives are not recommended to independently deal with this issue.
There are several breeding methods:
- Using the top, carefully cutting it from the stem and rooting it in a container of water,
- Stem shoots sprouting on the roots,
- Resorted to the division of the roots of the birthing shrub with a sharp knife.
After a period of flowering, when the buds have lost their vitality, they need to be cut.
This should be done with caution. Take a sharply sharpened knife and cut a flower at the very base of the bud. The wound can be powdered with activated carbon.
You can wait for the veil of the inflorescence to dry and gently remove it. The core itself dries out over time and without problems to move away from the flower.
Over time, the flower can lose its beautiful appearance, grow overgrowths near the roots and lose some of the lower leaves. Along the way, the aging process is often accompanied by the growth of small leaves and flowers, and sometimes complete lack of buds.

Anthurium, popularly referred to as "Men's happiness", is an amazing and beautiful plant. His beautiful buds look like they are made of plastic. For his appearance, he requires a lot of care and attention. Do not buy a flower if you do not have a lot of free time.
Anthuriums are quite demanding for watering. They need abundant watering. Excessive moisture and dry earthen clod will harm them. After watering should check pallet. If there is water in it, you need to pour it.
The flower is watered as the topsoil dries. At high temperatures in the room, watering is increased, at low temperatures, it is reduced. In the summer the plant is watered 2-3 times a week. In winter, one time will be enough. Water for irrigation should be warm, soft (rain or settled). Since anthuriums grow mainly in acidic substrates, the leaves will turn yellow from lime water.
In order for the plant to grow well and delight in its flowering, it must be constantly replanted, adding fresh earth mixture to the pot. The soil in the pot should be light, nutritious, good air flow. It is more expedient to use the purchased soil intended for aroid ones. Anthurium also suitable substrate for orchids. It is very important to place the drainage on the bottom of the pot. Small and narrow pot helps to stimulate flowering of anthurium. “Kids” are more often formed in a large and wide pot. When the plant is transplanted, "kids" should be transplanted.
Anthurium has one peculiarity. In the process of growth, its lower leaves die off, new leaves form from above. Because of this, the plant loses its attractiveness. To return the flower decoration, it must be rejuvenated. To do this, cut and root the top.
Types of anthurium with photos and titles

After flowering, fruits similar to berries are formed, they also have a bright color. Flower growers cultivated more than a hundred species, including garden plants.
Anthurium is considered a rather capricious flower, therefore the least unpretentious species are grown in room culture. The remaining varieties are suitable for greenhouses and go for cutting.
Andre (Adrianum) mix
Unpretentious plants that grow in height to 70-90 cm, form a lot of aerial roots. The leaves are glossy, shiny, heart-shaped. Varieties with bracts of the most different colors are derived: white, yellow, pink, purple, two-tone and almost black. The floral cover also looks like a shape of a heart, has pronounced veins.

Humidity and air temperature
Like any rainforest man, Anthurium is very picky about air humidity. It is desirable that its rate was at the level of 75-80%. The easiest way to achieve this is to install a side-by-side humidifier. You can also use pallets with moist expanded clay, placed on the windowsill. On hot days, anthurium leaves should be sprayed 3-4 times.
In summer, Anthurium will feel great at a temperature of 22-28 ° C. In winter, you need to ensure that the temperature does not fall below 17-18 ° C. The "male happiness" will be adversely affected by temperature differences or drafts, so you should not keep it near the open window. Heating batteries are also not the best neighborhood for Anthurium.
The decorative qualities of Anthurium largely depend on the abundance of light. If you want to get a beautiful flowering bush, use the following recommendations:
- Place the plant pot on the east or west window where it can receive bright diffused light.
- At noon, be sure to shade the leaves of Anthurium, otherwise it will get burned. If you have no time to follow this, simply place the plant half a meter from the window.
- In winter, tropical plants need a 12-hour daylight, so it is advisable to install a fluorescent lamp or phytolamp to provide the plant with backlight.
On a note! You can provide shading with white sheets of paper by attaching them to the glass with paper tape.
Anthurium needs watering in the summer 2-3 times a week. In winter, it is enough to water it once in 7 days. Watering should be carried out with soft water, anthurium does not like hardness salts. You can soften the water by boiling or adding citric acid crystals to it.
Attention! Do not use the bottom layers of water for irrigation. All salts and harmful impurities settle at the bottom!
Stagnation of water in the pot should not be in order to prevent this, a drainage layer is necessary. Water in the pan is also not left, it should be drained some time after watering. In hot weather, you can arrange a plant shower - Anthurium loves it. And in the cooler months, its leaves are rubbed with a damp cloth.
Selection of pot and soil
Anthurium loves cramped and low pots. In such capacities, it blooms more readily. If you take a pot with a reserve for transplanting, the flowering will not occur until the roots fill the entire pot. Even when your copy has grown too large, choose a new container 1-2 cm wider than the previous one.
Helpful advice! A wide pot can be taken when you expect the appearance of children from Anthurium.
You can choose a purchase of soil for aroid, and you can make the substrate yourself. To prepare you need to take components such as leaf ground, peat and humus in equal parts and add to them 0.5 parts of sand. To increase the permeability of the soil, agroperlite or moss pieces are added to it. Experts recommend putting additional pieces of charcoal, they will prevent rotting of the roots. The result should be a soil with weak acidity. The need for transplantation can be determined by the appearance of the roots in the drainage hole of the pot.
How to transplant
If the “male happiness” has healthy roots, it is better to transplant it by the method of transshipment, since the roots of the plant are very fragile and do not like being disturbed. To free the roots from the ground should be if they are rotten or the earth does not suit them. The procedure does not take much time.
- Place a layer of expanded clay and a bit of soil mixture on the bottom of the pot. Sprinkle the earth to become denser.
- Remove the plant from the old container, holding onto the base of the stems. The pot can be tapped lightly on the sides to make the process easier.
- Shake off the top layer of old soil, as it accumulates harmful impurities, but do not overdo it.
- Place Anthurium in the center of the new container so that its root neck is 1-2 cm deep into the ground.
- Fill the empty space in the pot with fresh soil, compacting it with shaking.
- There should be 2 cm of free space to the edge of the container in order to cover the soil with a layer of moss from above.
- Water the flower with a moderate amount of water.
Helpful advice! “Epin” or “Zircon” can be added to the water for the first irrigation, so that Anthurium can transfer the transplant more easily and start growing faster.
How to cut a flower
The flowers remain on the anthurium until their decorative effect is lost. As the buds wither, they prune off. If the peduncle is green, only one cover can be removed. Over time, the natural process of drying will occur, the flower stalks will independently separate from the base of the bush. Cutting them green is not recommended. When withering flower stalks, the flower transfers all accumulated nutrients.
Flowering Anthurium looks very decorative, but for the onset of flowering, you must carefully consider its needs.
First of all, you need to bear in mind that young Anthurium first blooms only at the age of two. To start flowering requires a temperature of 22 degrees and above.
Important for the plant and the length of daylight.
Blooming Anthurium needs to be fed every 2 weeks for long-term flowering.
Faded blankets are cut off so that the plants are not weakened by the laying of seeds.
What to do after flowering
After flowering of Anthurium, you can artificially create a period of rest, so that the plant can rest and gain strength. This is best done in the winter. To do this, the flower pot is moved closer to the glass, where it is cool, and at the same time, the temperature should not fall below 15 ° C. Water the plants poorly, artificially not illuminate. With the arrival of spring, care is transferred to normal.
Why does not bloom
Anthurium should receive coverage for 12 hours daily. An overabundance of light is also harmful, as is its lack. Place the plant in bright ambient light. In winter, provide him backlight, and in the summer shade. With a lack or excess of light, the plant will not bloom.
An obstacle to flowering may be low temperature content. Male happiness is a thermophilic flower. If it freezes regularly, the flowers will not wait.
Helpful advice! To bloom Anthurium start watering it with water heated to 40-45 ° C, it stimulates the budding.
Anthurium diseases and their treatment (with photo)
A sign of the disease will certainly be the appearance on the leaves of suspicious black, brown and yellow spots. Some diseases extend to the bracts. The reason for this is the attack of pests or the spread of the fungus.
If Anthurium is attacked by aphid, its leaves curl and discolor. Shchitovka can be identified by the appearance of brown growths and sticky plaque. Mealybug can be found on the leaves of the plant, if you look closely - a very small pest. The pincer pretends to be a spider web. In all these cases, Anthurium will have to be treated with insecticides. Actellic, Intavir, Karbofos will do.
If Anthurium became infected with Fusarium, it begins to wilt and yellow leaves, anomalous curvature of the stems, dark areas appear on the stem. The flower in this case must be treated with a fungicide, be sure to spill the primer in order to kill the fungus spores in it.
Anthracnose is caused by the pathogenic fungus Colletorichum. Young shoots, leaves, stalks begin to dry on the bush. If the treatment is not urgently started, the flower may die within a month. The onset of the disease is accompanied by the appearance of brown spots, on which mushroom spores are visible. The spread of the disease occurs very quickly. It is treated with copper sulfate and reduced watering.
At elevated temperatures and humidity, Anthurium may become ill with septoria. This is also a fungal disease. Accompanied by the appearance on the leaves of brown spots with yellow edging. After that the sheet dries and falls off. It is treated with copper preparations and fungicides.
Why leaves turn yellow, what to do?
Anthurium leaf yellowing can be caused by sunburn. It is necessary to remove the plant from the bright sun. The second reason for this is dry indoor air. Spray the leaves of a flower more often or put a humidifier next to it. Anthurium can react to watering with cold water. Water it at room temperature or a little warmer. Leaf yellowing can cause root rot. When transplanting, it is imperative to lay a drainage layer that will protect the root system from exposure to excessive moisture.
Dry leaf tips indicate a lack of humidity. Insufficient watering may also be to blame. Often, leaf shrinkage is caused by pests that suck the sap from the leaves. The most harmless reason is natural aging - in this case, the lowermost sheet usually dries.
Omens and superstitions
Anthurium is not without reason called "male happiness." It is recommended to keep it at home for single girls, then the flower energy will surely attract a life partner to the house. If the flower is contained in a house where a married couple lives, it helps to maintain peace and well-being. For complete harmony, he is encouraged to have Spathiphyllum, which is popularly called "women's happiness."
It is believed that Anthurium in the house will help people with heart disease and problems in the male part. The sign says that not a purchased, but a donated plant will be energetically stronger. Present this flower to your man, and he will find double strength and success.
If you want to have a home plant that blossoms at any time of the year, get Anthurium. It will decorate your home for many years and benefit you. Give him a sincere care, the flower will surely accept it with gratitude.
Temperature conditions for growing anthurium
Anthuriums are considered unpretentious plants, and while maintaining comfortable conditions for them, they are pleased with bright elastic foliage and frequent flowering. The inhabitants of the tropics settle down perfectly on the windowsills of ordinary apartments, being content with a temperature of about 22–24 ° C. In cool periods, when the temperature background in the house falls, the air cooled to 15–17 ° C. A slight decrease in temperature is possible at night, as well as in winter, if the plant falls into a period of relative rest.
Anthurium does not like sudden changes in temperature, drafts and cold wind.
When caring for anthurium at home, you can reduce the risk of rotting the roots of a plant located on a cold windowsill. To do this, you can raise the pot, or make under it a layer of insulation foam.
Lighting in the care of indoor anthurium
Anthuriums growing in the shade of larger plants can easily tolerate shade, and in the bright sun they can seriously suffer. The best place for brightly flowering and leafy forms is the eastern and western windows. If this is not possible, on the south window you can create proper conditions for growing anthurium by shading the pot or removing it from the glass into the room.
On warm summer days, anthuriums are useful for carrying out into the air, providing plants with protection from strong wind, direct sunlight and precipitation.
On poor health of the plant due to excess sun signal brown drying out burns on the leaf plates and the rapid drying of the soil surface.
But the lack of light is indicated by the yellowing of the foliage, its pallor and excessive lengthening of the cuttings. It happens on the north side as well as in the winter. The organization of additional illumination not only helps to organize the care of indoor anthurium, but also stimulates its flowering.
Watering anthurium at home
Beginner gardeners sometimes have an erroneous opinion that tropical plants require abundant and frequent watering. And as a result of this improper care, anthuriums at home suffer from excessive soil moisture. In fact, when watering plants of the Aroid family, it is important to know the measure.
Harmful as excessive watering, and the content of green pets in the dried substrate.
At the same time, overmoistening of the soil is more dangerous, since it can cause root rot and development of late blight. Therefore, especially for anthurium contained in a cool room, moisture that has drained into the pan must be removed. And between irrigations, the top layer of the soil should become almost dry.
On hot summer days and in a heated room, if the flower is grown under artificial light, the care of indoor anthurium should include more frequent watering and foliage treatment with a damp sponge. Such a measure will not only improve the appearance of the plant, but also facilitate his breathing.
Plants react to excessive hardness of irrigation water, as well as to excessive irrigation, by the appearance of black or dark brown spots on the leaf plates.
As a result of such an error in the care, anthurium at home develops worse, and the affected foliage can no longer fully perform its functions. You can soften moisture by adding a little citric acid. For irrigation use warm distilled or melt water.
Anthurium ground requirements
In order to, as in the photo, anthurium at home well blossomed, grow and bear fruit, he needs the most lightweight structured substrate with a pH level of pH 5.5-6.0 units. Since the roots of many species of anthurium are adapted for the consumption of moisture and nutrients and air and small accumulations of humus on the trunks and roots of large trees, in dense heavy soil mixture they will be uncomfortable and they may rot.
For the manufacture of soil mixture can be used:
- peat, peeled from foreign inclusions,
- leafy ground
- bark of coniferous trees, pre-boiled and crushed.
Two parts of the land and peat will require one part of the sand and bark. Pressed charcoal can be added to the soil, which not only has a positive effect on the structure of the mixture, but also serves to disinfect the soil. A good supplement for epiphytic anthuriums is sphagnum moss and perlite, which loosens any ready-made soil mixture from the store.
Details of planting, watering and creating other conditions for the plant will tell a video about how to care for anthurium at home. Having the basic ideas about the life of a tropical culture, and striving to regularly pay attention to a pet, you can admire a room anthurium for a long time with a minimum of diligence.
The best containers for anthuriums that form powerful air roots are small plastic pots with a mandatory drain hole. It is very important to arrange a powerful drainage layer in the pot for planting a houseplant so that the moisture does not remain in the lower part of the earthy coma, but is removed.
If for growing at home anthurium is planted in an orchid mix, the plant will require more frequent fertilizing, or a little decontaminated garden soil should be added to the ground.
Caring for indoor anthurium during intensive growth and flowering, it needs to be fed. The procedure is carried out twice a month, using ready-made products or alternating organic and mineral supplements. Plants that are sent to rest for the winter period are not fed at this time, and their watering is reduced. But with the lengthening of daylight hours to 12-14 hours, you can get a constant flowering of anthurium. In this case, the schedule of fertilizing and watering do not change in the winter months.
Anthurium does not need frequent transplants. But when the roots completely occupy the entire volume of the pot, at home, as in the photo, the anthurium is transplanted into a larger container. To do this, the anthurium is transferred to a new pot, and gaps on the sides are filled up with fresh substrate. Update and the top layer of soil.
Most often, a healthy plant, excluding young specimens, transplantation is required in 2-3 years.
It is a different matter if anthurium shows signs of ill health. Here it is important not only to transfer the earthy bed, but to clean up the remains of the soil:
- проверить состояние корневой системы,
- обрезать поврежденные корни,
- обработать срезы толченым углем.
При подборе горшков не следует отдавать предпочтение слишком крупным емкостям. Иначе антуриум, попавший в большой земляной ком, не зацветет, пока корни не освоят отведенные им «просторы».
In addition, moisture that is not absorbed by the roots remains in the soil and more often causes the appearance of mold, the development of fungi and soil pests.
An excessively deep planting can also lead to stem decay. To better keep the pet in the ground, he can arrange the support, especially useful when creating conditions for the cultivation of anthurium in the form of vines. Place exit stem from the ground, if the plant rises a little above the ground, you can sprinkle or condense with sphagnum. In this case, wet moss provokes the development of additional roots.
When caring for indoor anthurium, it is also important to remember that the sap of the plant can cause irritation, therefore, it is better to carry out all manipulations with the roots and leaves with gloves.
Anthurium care at home
How to care for anthurium
Caring for anthurium at home is quite simple, but it also needs special conditions for growth.
You have decided to purchase such a beautiful plant in the house. So, after buying it, you need to properly care for it.

Transplant anthurium is not as difficult as it may seem:
- pot (the best option would be a plastic pot, the dimensions of which correspond to the root system, but you should leave at least 3 centimeters in stock so that the flower is not crowded)
- soil (special soil is sold in the shops, intended for growing aroid species of flowers, drainage is necessary to use, to prevent rotting of the roots)
- transplanting method (it is better to repot the flower by the method of transshipment, but if the roots are rotten, then they need to be put in order, and only after that the plant is repotted)
Now you know how to transplant after buying anthurium.
Optimal conditions for the growth of anthurium
Lighting. The plant needs light for stable development, but direct sunlight can destroy it.
Pick a place lit in moderation or highlight the anthurium.
Air humidity. The optimum level of humidity in the room should be 80%. To anthurium well developed, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth.
Spraying the plant should be regular.

How to cope with problems during the growth of anthurium
If the Anthurium does not bloom and does not please you with its appearance, then it is worth understanding the main problems that may arise.
There are many of them, so it is necessary to study their features and causes of manifestation:
The leaves of the plant turned yellow. It is connected with overmoistening of the earth or with too concentrated feed.
Also try increasing the lighting level or replace the cramped pot with a larger tank.
Why anthurium leaves turn yellow
Black or brown spots on the leaves. If the leaves began to turn black you need to check whether the plant is worth a draft. Increase the level of air humidity in the room.
The leaves may turn black due to a temperature violation, which is suitable for the development of anthurium. You can replace the substrate (if it contains a lot of potassium).
The appearance of brown spots associated with waterlogging or unsuitable soil for growing plants.
Check if the root system of the anthurium is damaged. Replace water for irrigation if it is too hard or too cold.
Anthurium leaves turn yellow and black.
In addition, the dry tips of the leaves signal from a disease such as anthracnose (susceptible to plants with mechanical damage).
If the leaves start to curl, remove the plant from the draft, moisten the air and add light.
Fading foliage indicates that the root system began to rot from overflow. Trim the amount of water you use for watering.
"Crying" anthurium - the appearance of water droplets on its leaves - a natural process characteristic of tropical plants.
Called guttation. Thus, the plant gets rid of excess moisture, if the watering was abundant, and the lighting is weak.
Methods of reproduction of anthurium
Bushes that have reached a certain age, you can begin to multiply. The owners of such amazing plants are often asked to share such beauty.
But reproduction at home of anthurium must take place according to certain rules. So, here are some flower propagation methods.
The division of the mother plant. Separate a small part of the bush with the root system in the process of transplanting the plant.
Seedlings immediately take root, and special care is not required. You can dilute several flower bushes, creating optimal conditions for their growth.
Reproduction of anthurium division
Cuttings. Part of the stem, which is located above the ground, cut, starting from the leaf. Then it is added dropwise to the soil with suitable characteristics.
If you can provide the optimum temperature and humidity of the air, you can quickly grow a flower.
Aerial roots. Separate the piece of root that stands above the ground, and then dig it in the soil. In a few months you will receive a full-fledged flower that will delight with its appearance.
Reproduction by seeds. This is a complex process that takes a lot of time. Getting anthurium seeds at home is not as easy as it may seem.
You need to poll, and then wait for the technical ripeness of the plant. This process takes about two years, but no one guarantees that your efforts will be successful.
These are the main reproduction features of anthurium. If you do everything right, you can get new plants that will complement your home.
What pests threaten anthurium
There are pests that can spoil the plant. You must fight them if you are interested in an attractive flower.
The most common parasites are the following types of pests.
Aphid. These are insects that are colonized on the inside of the leaves of the plant. However, they are very difficult to notice.
If the plant begins to dry and grow slowly, then this indicates that the flower is damaged by parasites.
To cope with aphids, anthurium must be treated with chemical or biological insecticides.
Shchitovki. The bulging tubercles on the leaves indicate that the shitovki struck the plants. Oval parasites are beige or brown. They are easy to separate with a toothpick.
Pests quickly suck the juice from the plants, so the anthurium begins to slowly develop. As a result, the plant may die.
You need to purchase a special system tool in the store. Contact-type insecticides are powerless in this situation.
Mineral oil is used after treatment of plants with systemic agents.
Spider mite To see such parasites is almost impossible, because they are very small. It is possible to determine that they strike the plant by a thin web, as well as by light punctures on the leaves.
The plant quickly withers and dies, so you need to timely treat it with acaricides. However, pre-treat the leaves of the flower with a damp sponge dipped in soapy water.
In the process of watching the video you will get acquainted with some review of preventive drugs from plant pests.
Thrips. These are small flies that quickly infect plants with viruses. They also leave on the sheets of release, contributing to the development of fungus.
Anthurium leaves become yellow-white. To fight the flies, it is necessary to use special preparations. Also sticky traps will do.
Whitefly. Butterflies are very easy to spot as they fly away from the slightest movement. Parasites negatively affect the appearance of the flower.
The leaves curl and instantly lose their color. The canvas is covered with "sugar stains". You can fight whiteflies using insecticides.
These are the main parasites that can destroy your plant.
Timely measures to combat them will avoid possible problems in the future. Use only proven drugs that will make it possible to destroy all pests.
The main thing that you do not hesitate, because then deal with the problem will be much more difficult.

Lack of flowering can be associated with the following problems:
- heavy or inadequate lighting
- wrong watering process
- too high or too low room temperature
- drafts in the house
- improper ground view
- too tight or too spacious
- damage to plant roots
- insufficient amount of nutrients or their excess
If the plant is sick or it is spoiled by pests, it will not bloom, because the anthurium will not have enough strength to do this:
- bloom flower buds can weaken the flower (remove them immediately)
- be sure to trim the inflorescences if they start to fade
- but for seed propagation of plants it is worthwhile to leave “arrows”, the canvas of which has already faded.
If you can eliminate the main negative factors that prevent the plant from blooming, then very soon it will please you with bright buds.
