How to Keep Your Anthurium Wall Hanging Alive
Light: Anthuriums like very bright indirect light. Light from an east-facing window is ideal. Like people, anthuriums will burn if left in the sun too long. Use a sheer curtain or cracked blinds to filter strong sunlight from a south or west-facing window.
Temperature: Hang your anthurium in a part of your home that stays relatively warm and has good air circulation but is not drafty. Anthuriums like the same temperatures as you do -- they grow best between 70°F and 85°F. Avoid temperatures below 55°F or above 90°F.
Watering: Anthuriums like their roots to stay moist but not soggy. Water when the surface of moss feels dry and slightly crispy to the touch, but before the moss ball completely dries out. Soak roots by running the moss and bark under tepid (never cold) water for a few minutes. Anthuriums love humidity, so consider hanging them in your bathroom or mist the leaves between waterings.
Drying: Drip dry before rehanging. To prevent color from transferring to walls, place paper towels between the damp bark and the wall until the hanging is fully dry.
Life cycle: Anthurium blooms can last for months, but, unlike Jon Snow, they will eventually die. This does not mean the entire plant is dead! Continue caring for your anthurium, and it will reward you with new leaves, roots, and eventually new flowers.
Pets and Children: Please note that these plants can make you or your pets sick if ingested. Be sure to hang them in a place where your dog, cat, or small human cannot eat them.
