Anthurium Care 101


Thrives in bright indirect light, but can tolerate medium indirect light. Avoid direct sun.


Water every 1–2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

This plant can benefit from extra humidity.
