Red Flamingo Flower in Ceramic Pot
Design detail : This plant is potted in a brown Indian ceramic octogonal pot.
Flamingo Flower (Anthurium Orange) : True to its common name of painter's palette, Anthuriums are now available in almost every color of the palette. Anthuriums perhaps belong to a small group of houseplants that are treasured both for their flowers as well as their rich foliage.
Light: Good light is needed, but you must always avoid direct sun. Shaded balconies, patios are the best places.
Water: Keep the plant constantly moist. Water everyday in all seasons.
Humidity: Loves humidity in the air. Mist the plants regularly. Misting also helps in reducing the dust that tends to get collected on the large span of their leaves.
Feeding: A weak all purpose feed once every 2 weeks is necessary for regular flowering.
Repotting: Anthuriums grow profusely if well cared for. So you can repot them every year during spring.
Propagation: They produce offsets regularly. Remove them while repotting and voila ... each grows into a new plant!
Flowers: They flower very often and each flower lasts a long long time (upto 30 days). They flower throughout the year!
General tips: Anthuriums are good office-goers. In offices, put them near a window and the moderated temperature will work wonders on the flowers!
