Grows best in low-medium, indirect light. Morning sun can be tolerated if not too strong.

Use a well-draining soil mix. An easy recipe is 1 part Orchid bark, 1 part compost, and 1 part coconut coir. Alternatively, mix 1/4 Orchid bark into regular potting soil.

This plant thrives in humidity levels of 50% or higher.

Anthuriums are toxic and not safe. Do not ingest and teach children and pets to leave it alone.

Fertilize every three months during the growing season with Green Grub Insect Frass. You can either make a compost tea to water with every time or sprinkle a layer of fertilizer on top of the soil. If using a synthetic fertilizer, use a 1-2-1 ratio.
