Q.Heavy Leaves

Anonymous added on January 12, 2014 | Answered

My Anthurium I received in December is so high it will not stand up on its own. I have ribbon around it and a stake and it is still falling. Should I replant in larger container to put more plant in the dirt. I am not a ‘gardener’ – this was a gift. I am trying not to kill it. It had flowers but they were small and did not last long. Any hints will be appreciated.

If the current pot that it is in is too small, then repotting the plant is a good idea. Simply go up another pot size or two. It may also be in need of some light pruning of the larger, heavier leaves to help it stand up.
