Anthurium Clarinervium plant care and instructions
Like other aroids, many species of Anthurium can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates in shady spots. They include forms such as A. crystallinum f palmifolium with its large, velvety, dark green leaves and silvery white venation. Many hybrids are derived from A. andreanum or A. scherzerianum because of their colorful spathes. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter. In milder climates, the plants can be grown in pots of soil. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 16°C-22°C (60°F-72°F) and at lower light than other house plants. Wiping the leaves off with water will remove any dust and insects. Plants in pots with good root systems will benefit from a weak fertilizer solution every other week. In the case of vining or climbing Anthuriums, the plants benefit from being provided with a totem to climb.
Light – Natural indirect/artificial bright light
Place – Indoors. Do not expose the plant to direct sunlight.
Water – Apply 3 cups (Approx. 150 ml) of water when the topsoil (3-4 inches) in the pot feels dry to touch.
Fertilizer – Organic fertilizer once a month in the growing season (February to September)
Temperature – 16°C-22°C (60°F-72°F)
According to NASA, the anthurium is incredibly effective at removing formaldehyde, ammonia, toluene, and xylene from the air.
