Introduction

The anthurium falcatum is a real stunner with it’s t-shaped glossy dark green leaves. It is relatively easy to care for as long as you keep it humid.

Light Needs

Medium to bright indirect sunlight is best, no direct sun.

How Often to Water An Anthurium Falcatum

Water when the top half of soil is wet, check your plant twice a week in summer and once in winter. It likes to stay slightly moist but not soaking wet.

Fertilizer

Feed it monthly in the warmer months of spring and summer.

Soil

A really well draining anthurium mix is ideal. It does not want to hold on to water. I use a mix of soil, orchid bark and perlite.

When To Repot

Repot them when they outgrow their current pot, be sure to check them in Spring as they’ll start to grow and need space. Be really careful of the roots when you repot as breaking them will stress the plant.

Humidity

60-70% humidity is ideal, these plants will do well in a high humidity cabinet or near a humidifier.

Temperature

20-27°C (68-81°F) is the ideal range for this anthurium.
