The red, heart-shaped flower of Anthuriums, also known as Painted Tongue, Flamingo Flower (Flamingo Lily) or Tail Flower, is really a spathe or a waxy, modified leaf flaring out from the base of a fleshy spike (spadix) where the tiny real flowers grow. Most common colors of anthuriums are red and shades of red.
Anthuriums are the longest blooming plants and are also one of the easiest to maintain houseplants. It’s best to keep your Anthurium in a bright spot, but avoid placing it in direct sunlight as the leaves can get sun burnt. However keeping it in very low light will affect its bloom and the plant will grow slower.
Anthurium requires a well drained soil mix. It does best when the soil has a chance to dry out in between waterings. Make sure the soil remains a little moist and not completely dry. You can achieve this by watering a little twice or thrice a week. Anthuriums are susceptible to root rot.
