Anthurium Care Guide

GEORGIA THE ANTHURIUM

Also known as the laceleaf and flamingo flower. The Anthurium is native to Ecuador and Columbia.

LIGHTING 

Georgia should be placed in a bright room with plenty of natural light. She is not a low-light tolerant plant and will fail to thrive in a dark spot of the home. Place her near a west or east facing window in indirect light. Lighting-wise she can be placed with Eraser, Melany and Daniel.

WATERING 

The best way to know when Georgia is ready for a drink is by feeling the first few inches of her soil. She might droop her foliage a little when she is ready for a drink. Her watering schedule should be reduced in the winter months when she needs a lot less water.

HUMIDITY 

Georgia is a humidity loving plant and should be placed near a humidifier or on a pebble tray. Place Georgia near plants that release humidity like Lily and Hamish for an extra humidity boost.

TEMPERATURE 

The perfect indoor temperature for Georgia is between 20ºC-25ºC. The warmer the temperature the more quickly she will grow and your watering schedule will be more frequent.

FERTILISER 

Georgia can be fertilised once a month in the growing season (March-September) to promote new growth. Do not fertilise in the winter months when the plant is in dormancy.

REPOTTING 

Georgia can stay in her original nursery pot until large roots start sticking out of the bottom holes. Do not re-pot in the winter months as this could send her into shock during her dormancy period.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR ANTHURIUM PLANT

Brown leaves/ spots  - This could happen for a couple of reasons 

  1. You’re overwatering Georgia and her watering schedule needs to be less frequent.
  2. She is reacting badly to tap water. Use filtered or rain water moving forward. 

Drooping foliage with yellow tips - This is usually a sign that Georgia is ready for a drink. Always check the first few inches of soil before you water. 

Yellow/discolouration leaves  -  This can happen for two reasons

  1. Georgia has received too much light and should be moved out of bright direct light.
  2. Georgia has been over fertilised. All infected leaves should be removed and fertilising should be reduced.
