  •   Anthurium Red, often referred to as the Flamingo Flower, is a captivating hybrid within the Anthurium genus, a family of flowering plants found in the lush tropical rainforests of Central and South America.

    This elegant houseplant boasts glossy, heart-shaped green leaves that serve as a perfect backdrop for its vibrant, long-lasting red blooms. Remarkably, the red blooms are actually specialized modified leaves known as spathes, designed to attract pollinators.

    Anthurium Red is a relatively compact plant, perfect for tabletops, shelves, or windowsills. It is also a relatively low-maintenance houseplant, making it a good choice for beginners.

    Anthurium is an air-purifying plant recommended by NASA. It helps to remove toxins from the air, such as formaldehyde, ammonia, and toluene.

  • Anthurium Red is versatile when it comes to light conditions, tolerating low light but flourishing with bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a well-lit spot, but shield it from direct sunlight to preserve its health and beauty.

    Keeping the soil consistently moist without letting it become waterlogged is key. Water your Anthurium when the top inch of soil feels dry, and reduce watering during colder months.

    Ensure your Anthurium Red thrives in a rich, well-draining potting mix. Any high-quality houseplant potting mix, augmented with perlite for improved aeration and drainage, will do wonders.

    This tropical gem finds its comfort zone within the temperature range of 65°F to 85°F during the day, with nighttime temperatures ideally ranging from 60°F to 70°F. Avoid extreme heat above 90°F and cold below 85°F. Anthuriums adore a humid atmosphere and thrive in environments with humidity levels at 50% or higher.

    To keep your Anthurium Red in top shape, provide monthly nourishment with diluted houseplant fertilizer during the active growing season in spring and summer.

    Anthuriums contain calcium oxalate crystals and are toxic if ingested, so keep them out of reach of children and pets.

    When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
  • It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
