Caring for anthurium also requires that the soil be free-draining but retain some water. If you are growing this plant as a houseplant, an equal mixture of potting soil and orchid soil or perlite will provide the type of soil that anthuriums prefer. Plant it outdoors in a well-drained spot. Anthurium plants do not like consistently moist soil.
Water well when a few inches of the soil is dry to the touch, stopping when water begins to flow out of the drainage holes. Avoid over watering.
Flowering anthuriums require bright, indirect light (direct sunlight will scorch the leaves and flowers).
Use a fertilizer high in phosphorus to promote blooms in flowering varieties.
