Best Locations For Growing White Anthurium
One of the most important factors in keeping this houseplant healthy and beautiful is location. The right amount of light is crucial because White Anthurium is easily scorched in bright light. White Anthurium is toxic if ingested so placing it away from house pets and children is important. These plants do well both inside and outside as long as they are not exposed to very low temperatures.
White Anthurium Sunlight Requirements
White Anthurium prefers diffused medium light. Too much direct light will scorch the leaves.
White Anthurium Care
This houseplant prefers well-drained, aerated soil. Amend potting soil with peat, perlite, compost or coconut fiber. Avoid dimly lit locations. This house plant prefers temperatures ranging between 60 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. This plant is hardy in USDA hardiness zones 10 and higher. In colder areas, this plant should be overwintered indoors.This plant is easily propagated by stem cuttings.
Watering White Anthuriums
This houseplant prefers consistently moist, but not wet, soil. As a rule of thumb, water once a week during the growing season in spring and summer. Make sure that the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry before watering. When the plant is dormant during the winter, reduce the watering frequency. Use a pot with good drainage.
Feeding White Anthurium
You will want to fertilize this houseplant occasionally, about every two weeks during the growing season to encourage flowering. Use a phosphorus-rich fertilizer, such as a 10-30-30, diluted to one-quarter strength.
