Description

The green anthuriums are great flowering houseplants. Midori means green in Japanese and shares its name with a very popular blend of green colored melon liquor. It is a medium sized flower and it is one of the longer lasting varieties. Unlike a rose which will only last a few days, Midori anthuriums have been known to last up to a month after being cut.

Family: Araceae

Light: Place Anthuriums in a location where they get filtered light, such as a bright window. North or West facing windows are best as these do not allow direct sunlight all day.

Water: Key when it comes to watering anthuriums is to water them regularly, while at the same time allowing their roots to receive air. Keep evenly moist. Be sure to use a container with a drainage hole and never allow the root system to remain soaked in water. When their roots are left in water, this prevents oxygen from reaching their roots and when this happens anaerobic microbes and fungal growth will occur and cause root rot. Left unchecked root rot will kill your plants.

Humidity: Humidity between 80 and 100% is ideal. But a little lower is fine as long as you water your plant regularly.  These plants are ideally suited for bathroom. as it can get proper humidity when someone takes a hot shower. Mist the leaves several times a week with a spray bottle. Mist your plant more frequently in the summer growing season- the more water you can supply the blooms, the healthier it will be.

Temperature: Growth may cease completely below 70ºF, but will resume when warmer weather returns. In winter, anthurium plants need a 6 week rest period at a with little water. This allows the plant to flower profusely again in the following season.

Soil: Any good potting mix that drains well. The ideal potting soil is light, fluffy and has to drain well. Everything from Sand, Perlite, Cocopeat,Clay Aggregate, Vermiculite and gravel can be used to help meet this requirement and shall provide the kind of soil anthuriums prefer.

Fertilizer: Use a fertilizer with a ratio of 5-10-5.  Higher phosphorus number is ideal for ensuring a good balance between foliage and flowers
