Red Anthurium: grow it like this to always have it in flower and with shining leaves!
1 – Preparation of the plant and insertion into the sponge.
First of all, you need to check the condition of the plant and the roots . Then we go to eliminate the yellowed leaves and roots with scissors, obviously keeping the collar.
After obtaining the desired result we take a flower sponge and then create holes on one end.
Inside the holes made we are going to insert our leaves.
We then take the sponge with the leaves into a glass vase and then pour the water into it. Then we add a little water directly onto the sponge.
2 – How to water the plant, giving it the necessary nutrients.
Please note that the plant only needs to be watered and not fertilized . In fact, after keeping the plant for about 15 days in a shaded place we can move it to a place where it can easily flower.
Then, at the end of two months, we can water it in such a way as to give it the nutrients it needs, also using manure .
3 – How much you need to water the plant and what to do if it appears too dry or too humid.
It is important to know that Anthurium should be watered no more than 3 times a week .
In fact, too much water could turn the leaves yellow and damage the roots .
If, however, the plant is dry we simply have to soak the roots , after pouring a lot of water into the vase. Then leave it immersed for about 60 minutes . In this way the plant will not dry out further and will take on new life.
At this point we have all the tools to grow and make our Anthurium flourish in water .
