Anthurium Tickled Pink
Botanical Name: Anthurium andraeanum ‘Tickled Pink’
Anthuriums and phalenopsis are tropical plants, so ideally they should be grown in full-sun (at least 6 hours of sun per day). All anthuriums need high humidity, so open terrariums or containers with water reservoirs are recommended.
Anthuriums like to be fed regularly, and in the spring you should feed them a thorough soaking with a balanced liquid fertilizer. When repotting your anthurium, do so in early spring-late March, when new leaves are emerging.
Anthuriums bloom on new growth, so ensure that new growth starts in an open area. This can be achieved by repotting below the soil the old pot is in, or by growing the plant in a large pot.
Anthuriums grow and flower best in temperatures above 60°F, but will not tolerate temperatures below 55°F.
Anthuriums are poisonous if eaten.
