If your Anthurium pot plant has grown too big for its pot, then it’s time to repot it. Preferably do this in the spring, as the lighter days encourage budding. Another good time is right away after buying it, so it can acclimate in your home. In this article we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Anthurium repotting.

Anthurium repotting

It’s best to repot your Anthurium once every two years. Usually by then it’ll need a bigger pot. By doing this, the roots get all the space they need to grow again. Repot your Anthurium preferably in spring, because the lighter days stimulate the formation of buds.


  • A plant pot, make sure that the diameter is at least 20% wider than the current pot
  • Anthurium potting soil
  • Optional: hydro granules

How to repot an Anthurium

Optionally start with some hydro granules at the bottom of the pot, to prevent the Anthurium from standing in a layer of water with the roots.

Place a small layer of Anthurium potting soil in the new plant pot. Then carefully remove the Anthurium from the ‘old’ pot, trimming any brown leaves or wilted flowers. Place it into the new plant pot. Top up with even more potting soil, so that the plant sits nice and firm. And while you’re at it, why not mix in a bit of Anthurium fertilizer at the same time so the plant has a bit in reserve for growing.
