Anthurium Royal Red

Anthurium Royal Red Care Guide


Anthurium Royal Red prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves. In lower light conditions, the plant may produce fewer flowers and grow more slowly.


Water Anthurium Royal Red when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Use room temperature water and water directly onto the soil, avoiding wetting the leaves to prevent fungal diseases. Ensure that the pot has good drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.


Anthurium Royal Red thrives in high humidity levels between 60-80%. Maintain humidity by using a humidifier, grouping plants together, or placing the pot on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Regular misting can also help increase humidity levels.


Keep Anthurium Royal Red in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and no lower than 60°F (15°C) at night. Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations.


Feed Anthurium Royal Red with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a fertilizer high in phosphorus to promote flowering. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when growth slows down.


Anthurium Royal Red is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It contains calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and swelling of the mouth, tongue, and throat. Keep the plant out of reach of children and pets, and wash your hands after handling the plant.

Additional Care Information

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure good aeration and prevent waterlogging. Rotate the plant regularly to ensure even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source. Remove any yellow or damaged leaves promptly to maintain the plant's health and appearance.


Yellow Leaves: Yellowing leaves may indicate overwatering, underwatering, or low humidity. Adjust your watering routine, check the soil moisture, and increase humidity levels. Brown Leaf Tips: Brown or crispy leaf tips can be caused by dry air, inconsistent watering, or excess fertilizer salts. Maintain proper humidity levels, adjust your watering routine, and flush the soil periodically to remove excess salts. No Flowers: Insufficient light or improper fertilization can lead to a lack of flowers. Ensure the plant is receiving adequate light and use a fertilizer high in phosphorus to encourage flowering.
