Anthurium Care

A guide to Anthurium Crystallinum care

by Plants for all Seasons 10 Mar 2023

Anthurium crystallinum is a unique and rare variety of Anthurium known for its large, heart-shaped leaves that have a velvet texture and a shiny, silver-gray color. Here's a detailed guide to Anthurium crystallinum care:

  1. Light Requirements Anthurium crystallinum prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing the plant to direct sunlight, as this can cause the leaves to burn. Place the plant near a window with filtered light or use a grow light.

  2. Temperature Anthurium crystallinum prefers warm temperatures between 65°F and 80°F. Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 60°F, as this can cause damage to the leaves.

  3. Humidity Anthurium crystallinum prefers humid environments, so mist the leaves regularly or use a humidifier. You can also place a tray of water near the plant to increase humidity levels.

  4. Watering Anthurium crystallinum prefers soil that's evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Avoid letting the plant sit in standing water, as this can cause root rot.

  5. Soil Anthurium crystallinum prefers well-draining soil that's rich in organic matter. A soil mix of peat moss, perlite, and coarse sand or bark is ideal for this variety.

  6. Fertilizer Anthurium crystallinum benefits from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month or a slow-release fertilizer every three months. Avoid fertilizing the plant during the winter months when it's dormant.

  7. Pruning Anthurium crystallinum may require occasional pruning to maintain its shape and promote new growth. Use a clean, sharp pair of pruning shears to remove any dead or damaged leaves or stems.

  8. Repotting Anthurium crystallinum should be repotted every two to three years to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth. Use a pot that's one size larger than the current pot and ensure that it has adequate drainage holes.

In summary, Anthurium crystallinum requires bright, indirect light, warm temperatures, high humidity, and well-draining soil to thrive. By providing the plant with the appropriate care, including regular watering, fertilization, pruning, and repotting, you can ensure that your Anthurium crystallinum stays healthy and vibrant.
