Anthurium White, commonly known as the Flamingo Flower or pigtail plant, is a captivating hybrid within the Anthurium genus, a group of flowering plants thriving in the lush tropical rainforests of Central and South America.
This elegant houseplant showcases glossy, heart-shaped green leaves that provide the perfect canvas for its striking, long-lasting white blooms. These captivating white blossoms are not flowers, they are actually specialized modified leaves called spathes, ingeniously designed to lure pollinators.
With a compact growing habit, Anthurium White is a delightful addition to tabletops, shelves, or windowsills. Its relatively low-maintenance nature also makes it a wonderful choice for beginners who are new to indoor gardening.
Anthurium, including Anthurium White, stands as a commendable air-purifying agent in an air-purifying houseplant list recommended by NASA. Its remarkable ability to cleanse the air by removing indoor toxins like formaldehyde, ammonia, and toluene makes it a health-conscious addition to your indoor environment.
Anthurium White is adaptable to various lighting conditions, thriving in both low light and bright, indirect sunlight. Place it in a well-illuminated spot, ensuring it's shielded from direct sunlight to maintain its health and beauty.
Consistently maintaining the soil's moisture without allowing it to become waterlogged is essential. Water your Anthurium White when the top inch of soil feels dry, and reduce watering during colder months.
To ensure the flourishing of your Anthurium White, provide it with a rich, well-draining potting mix. Any high-quality houseplant potting mix, combined with perlite for enhanced aeration and drainage, will work wonders.
This tropical gem thrives within a temperature range of 65°F to 85°F during the day, with nighttime temperatures ideally ranging from 60°F to 70°F. Avoid exposing it to extreme heat above 90°F or cold below 85°F. Anthuriums revel in a humid environment and prosper when surrounded by humidity levels of 50% or higher.
To keep your Anthurium White in peak condition, offer it monthly nourishment with diluted houseplant fertilizer during its active growth season in spring and summer.
It's important to note that Anthuriums contain calcium oxalate crystals and can be toxic if ingested. Therefore, ensure they are placed 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.
