This tropical houseplant loves a warm sunny spot. Here's everything you need to know when keeping this beautiful plant happy, healthy and growing.

The Anthurium is a fairly slow growing houseplant,
With the right care and regular fertilisation, the Anthurium plant produces new flowers throughout the year.
Usually however, there are cycles of three months of flowering, 3-6 without flowering and then three months of flowering again.
Fertilize once every 3-4 months to encourage healthy growth and flowering. Make sure to dead head any leaves or flowers to further encourage new growth.
