Anthurium Esmeraldense Care
Your Anthurium Esmeraldense 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 drier.
Place your Anthurium Esmeraldense in a warm, well-lit spot. The more light the plant receives, the more flowers your plant will produce, but never expose it to direct sunlight. During the winter they can handle less light.
Your Anthurium Esmeraldense 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.
Keep the soil lightly moist during the growing season from March through September. Water your Anthurium Esmeraldense well and then allow the top 1-2 inches of soil to dry out before watering again. Overwatering causes yellow leaf tips and under-watering causes brown leaf tips.
Use a balanced fertilizer for Anthurium plants diluted to half the recommended strength. Feed monthly in the spring and summer, when your Anthurium Esmeraldense plant is actively growing.
