Humidity

Your Anthurium Albovirescens loves a humid environment, so feel free to mist every day. Use a pebble tray or a humidifier during the winter months when the air tends to be much drier.

Light

Place your Anthurium Albovirescens in a warm, well-lit spot. The more light the plant receives, the more it will grow, but never expose it to direct sunlight.

Temperature

Your Anthurium Albovirescens prefers temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and no cooler than 60 degrees at night. Avoid placing your plants near heating and air conditioning vents and fans.

Watering

Keep the soil consistently moist during the growing season from spring through the end of summer. Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry before watering again. Overwatering causes yellow leaf tips and under-watering causes brown leaf tips.

Fertilizing

During the growing season (spring and summer), feed your Anthurium Albovirescens once a month using a complete, ¼-strength liquid fertilizer. Note -- too much fertilizer can do more harm than good. To encourage more blooms, use a fertilizer higher in phosphorus during the growing season.
