Q.Where To Plant Anthuriums

Zone Tsitsikamma, South Africa | Anonymous added on April 7, 2021 | Answered

Can you please give advice on the placement of Anthurium’s indoors and whether/where they can be planted outdoors. Cold winters (no frost) and humid hot summers where we live. Also why it would produce new healthy leaves but no flowers.

These must be grown where the temperatures are mild, year round. This is equivalent to our USDA zones 10 and higher. Most regions will need to grow this as an indoor container plant.

They cannot tolerate direct sunlight, so a bright room is plenty. The brighter the better, without being in direct light.

Healthy leaves and no blooms will indicate that the soil is too rich, contains too much nitrogen, is too acidic, or that the light is not quite bright enough.
