Anthurium 'Big Red Bird'
|Temperature:||Average room temperatures from 65°F/18.3°C - 75°F/23.8°C (maybe a little higher and not below 60°F/15.5°C). Lower temperatures will affect it's leaves (may turn yellow), impede it's growth and flowering.|
|Light:||The Anthurium is a lover of light - but not direct sunlight.|
|Watering:||Keeping the soil moist at all times within the summer is advisable. Water every couple of days and less in the winter.|
|Soil:||A good draining soil is best suited, such as a peat moss based potting soil and perlite.|
|Re-Potting:||These are re-potted within spring usually every 2 years, or when they become pot-bound.|
|Humidity:||Anthurium loves being misted with a light spray of lukewarm water, regulary. Cleaning lightly with a gentle sponge is advised, which improves humidity - and makes it look healthy.|
|Propagation:||Propagate by dividing the plant when you decide to re-pot in spring. Having a good temperature above 75°F/23.8°C for the first few weeks will give the plant a great start in life.|
