Anthurium

Belladonnabud added on June 2, 2015 | Answered

I have had a red Anthurium for approx. 4 years. It was in full flower when I purchased it. It is a healthy plant glossy leaves and it has never flowered since I purchased it. Is there a special technique to make it flower? I feed it once a month with a diluted fertiliser. It is in the right soil and is really healthy so I am not sure why it's never flowered. It is indoors with indirect sunlight and I live in the Midlands in the UK. Thank you Sylvia

Anthurium is a plant that is a big finicky. How have you been watering it - is it possible you have been over or under-watering it? Given that anthuriums are a tropical plant they prefer it on the warm side (70-85 degrees) and like humidity. Here is an article that will help you boost the humidity level your anthurium is receiving:

Is the pot it is in well-draining? And what kind of soil mix is it in?
