Flowering Facts: Anthuriums

Anthurium

  • Anthurium cut stems are available to purchase all year round and have a vase life of 14-28 days.
  • They should be stored in cool temperatures, but not below 45°F.
  • Re-cut the stems about ½ inch every five days.
  • Anthuriums come in shades of red, burgundy, white, pink, orange, green, brown and variegated.
  • The potting soil preferred by Anthuriums is one that retains moisture but is also well draining.
  • The plant needs to stay moist at all times but should not be water-logged. The soil can either be watered thoroughly and then allowed to slightly dry before re-watering or the plant can be watered every two to three days with a small amount of water.
  • Anthuriums need moderate warmth with their environment.  They do best at   60-90°F. Temperatures above 90°F can cause loss of blooms, drying of foliage and fading of the plant.
  • Anthuriums needs plenty of bright indirect sunlight throughout the year. Keep the plant at least five feet from windows to prevent burning or overheating especially during the summer months.
  • Repotting should be done every two years in the spring.
  • One common problem with Anthuriums is gnats which can be prevented by keeping the plant free of standing water and dead foliage.
  • Keep Anthurium plants away from pets and children as they are considered toxic if consumed.

Flowering Facts: Bromeliads

  • BromeliadInflorescences (the flowering parts of a plant) may arise from the “cup” or be born within the “cup.” The “cup” or the “vase” is formed in the center of many bromeliads by overlapping leaves and is a holding tank or reservoir for water.
  • Bromeliads can be used in the landscape in frost-free areas of the state or grown in containers that can be moved indoors in areas where freezes occur.
  • The majority of bromeliads thrive outdoors in Florida’s high summer temperatures, even in excess of 100°F. In a home, bromeliads do best at 70-75°F during the day and between 60 and 65°F at night.
  • In south Florida, bromeliads can be grown outdoors unprotected during most winters.
  • In a home, a window with a southern, eastern or western exposure is satisfactory for bromeliad growth, but most species must not be exposed to direct sunlight.
  • A yellowish or pale green plant may indicate too much light and a darker green plant may indicate not enough light.
  • Bromeliads are extremely tolerant of low-moisture conditions and will survive prolonged periods of drought.
  • Bromeliads grown in a potting mix or in the landscape should be watered when the soil surface feels dry.
  • Plants grown in pots should be watered thoroughly, until water runs out of the bottom of the pot and then not watered again until the surface feels dry. Watering thoroughly once a week is usually sufficient.
