Anthurium Royal Red

£12.00

‘Flamingo Flower, Tail Flower, Painted Tongue Plant.’

These ladies are simply stunning. The ‘flowers’ are actually not flowers at all but leaves. They are such beautiful plants that make the perfect gift in lieu of a bouquet – they last much longer! Or to add bit of colour to an otherwise green house jungle. They’re generally very easy to look after and really durable.

They come in a 12cm pot.

 

Availability: 3 in stock

Light : Keep you Anthurium in bright indirect light. You don’t want to scorch the leaves in the hot afternoon sun. 

Water:  Water thoroughly when the top 3 or so centimetres have dried out. Give her enough water that it drips out of the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. More light/warmth means she’ll be extra thirsty. 

Humidity: This one does love a good dose of humidity so you can put her in the bathroom/kitchen or group her with the other kids in your home jungle, or you can give her a good misting. 

Temperature: She does like to be kept warm so she’s a good one for a conservatory. Just don’t let her get too hot else she’ll wilt (just like the rest of us huh?) 

Food:  During the growing season (spring/summer) you can fertilise your Anthurium once a month with ¼ strength all round fertiliser. 

Toxicity: This lady is not kind if you eat her so maybe best out of reach of nibblers. Also the sap can irritate your skin so be careful if repotting or pruning.

Dimensions 12 × 42.5 cm

These ladies can be quite susceptible to root rot so if you’re concerned I would always err on the side of under-watering than overwatering. It’s much easier to revive a dry plant than a drowned plant. 

If you see roots growing from the stems, don’t worry, these are just aerial roots that will enjoy a bit of misting. If you don’t like the look of them you can snip them off without causing her any harm. 

These ladies don’t like to be root bound, so if she looks really unhappy and you can see roots coming out of the bottom of the pot, it’s time to repot her in a bigger pot. 

Faded flowers? This just means they’re done now so you can remove them (cut at the base of the flower stem, closest to the base of the plant)  to keep her looking her best.
