Anthurium plant

Zone Longview, Texas 75605 | GETWET added on January 3, 2017 | Answered

My anthurium plant has grown tall. It's pretty but needs to be fuller. Do I prune it, re-pot it or what? I have the plant in my office with indirect sunlight and fluorescent lighting.

The best way to make your anthurium fuller is to provide it with more light, perhaps by adding an additional light near the plant. Plants grown in low light often become "leggy" or excessively tall. Pruning it back should also help the appearance- you can remove about 1/3 of the plant's size at one time.
