Anthurium flowers have turned green

Zone I live in the UK | Hommechamps added on March 22, 2015 | Answered

Anthurium flowers have turned green - can they be returned to white? I have one of these plants, which had white flowers when it was purchased 6 months ago. Now the flowers have all turned green. How can I return them to white?

Kindest regards

There are many reasons why an anthurium turns green, such as the species, aging, or incorrect cultivation, all of which are discussed in the article below:

The flower-like spathes will not turn back to white unfortunately. The spathe will eventually die at which point you can cut it off and grow the plant on as a foliage houseplant or start the process to force more blooms.
