Anthurium plant care tips
In the summer, the Anthurium plant should be watered twice a week. But always check the potting compost first because if Anthuriums are watered too often, they become waterlogged. Use well-draining compost and water your plant only when the compost feels fairly dry. In the winter period watering once is enough.
