Priming. In anthurium growing only in the usual ground, more chances to die or take a disgusting appearance. We need a substrate that can be permanently a little humid, but at the same time, be air.

I am preparing the ground for anthurium, taking:

  1. 2 parts peat (you can replace conventional and ground);
  2. 2 crust (Phalaenopsis borrow from the cultivation-epiphytes) which will create a void filled with air;
  3. 1 part sphagnum moss, which will store and deliver moisture gradually.

I am sure that such a mixture can anthurium and absorb moisture, its rightful tropical origin, and "breathe".

In the summer he was "burned" I do not even on the east window. Now, in the warmer months I use or shading (mirror film), or put the pot with anturimom on the high rack in the window of tulle.
  • Air temperature - not below 16 ° C. Men's happiness is very heat-loving!
  • feeding: Mandatory from April to October (average band) or year-round (if the flower is under the lights). In simple terms, anthurium constantly fertilize until it is actively growing. I alternating fertilizer for flowering with organics (3-1).

Sometimes the owners of anthuriums complain: "With my flower happened something terrible!", Attaching a photo strung out plants with aerial roots.
