Q.Help…Can I save my anthurium?

Zone South Africa | knysnasandy added on May 18, 2012 | Answered

I’ve over-watered my anthurium and the lovely plant is drooping more by the minute. I’ve taken it out of the potting medium and left the roots to dry out a bit but the poor special baby is looking like death. Please help if you can.

If it has not developed root rot as a result of the overwatering, you can cut back watering and the plant will most likely recover. If it has root rot, you may be best getting a new plant.
