Anthurium- flowers curling up.
I just got this plant and it is on my desk at work. It does not receive direct sunlight but I believe enough, but the flowers on one side are curling up. I am just wondering what causes this? Is it not getting enough sun? Thanks!

Anthuriums thrive as houseplants because they prefer low light situations.
This plant also needs porous, well-draining soil and proper fertilization to produce the maximum number of blooms.
Anthurium flowers remain on the plant for several weeks before they fade and drop to the ground.
Depending on the conditions that your plant is in and the length of time the flowers have been blooming, it's possible they are coming to the end of their life.
Anthuriums grow best with day temperatures of 78 to 90 F, and night temperatures of 70 to 75 F. Temperatures above 90 F may cause foliar burning, faded flower color, and reduced flower life.
