Hello Gardeners, I recently propagate my anthurium from cutting but I can't understand why its suffering? The media I used is 50% Peat and the other 50% is mix of composted soil conditioner or other green stuff, I actually stand it above that media and added expanded clay to the half/rest of the pot to don't suffocate it... Can you please help me? what do I do? Do I have to transfer it to a mix of bark - perlite and blonde peat moss like what all say? I cut the leaves from the big part of the plant (In the pic) because they were so flabby and turning brown...

If the roots have developed, then I fear that they are constricted in such a small space. If the roots have not developed completely, then this is the issue. I would suggest a larger container. Since the mix you are using has good drainage, I would also recommend that you water more often.

There is no ground root at all beacuse i cutted it from the mother plant. Do you think it can survive? Thank You :)
