Find a cool spot for your Anthurium flowers

Of course, you want to showcase your Anthurium flowers in a place where they can be admired to their fullest. However, for flowers, it’s crucial to find a cool and shaded spot, as direct sunlight can scorch their leaves. A shaded spot will significantly extend the lifespan of flowers.
