The Anthurium Clarinervium does need some special care at regular intervals. Proper care of the plant will help to ensure ideal growth and will keep the plant healthy for a long time. Here are some of the most important tips to keep it healthy.
Heat sensitivity – The plant is sensitive to heat and can get damaged by direct sunlight. If the plant is placed near a window then ensure that it does not get too much heat or sunlight to avoid burns. It grows well when it receives a good amount of indirect sunlight.
Temperature – The ideal temperature for an Anthurium Clarinervium plant is between 12ºC to 23ºC. If the temperature exceeds 23ºC then there is a good chance that the plant might dry up or get burnt. If the temperature drops down below 12ºC then the plant might freeze. It is a good idea to keep the plant comfortable during extreme temperatures to keep it healthy.
Overexposure – Keeping this plant at the right temperature is important for its health. The plant should be kept away from direct sunlight in summer as excess heat can cause damage. Moving the plant away from windows in summer is a good way to protect it from overexposure. In winter season the plant should be kept at a distance away from heaters. Air conditioners and strong winds can also cause damage to the plant. The leaves can get damaged and turn brown if they get exposed to extreme temperatures.
Air Circulation – It also needs good air circulation. It is important to keep the plant in a well-ventilated room to ensure optimal growth, as well to prevent pests.
Humidity – This plant loves humidity and moisture. The plant needs at least 60%-80% humidity in the air for optimal growth. Some prefer to place their plants in their bathroom. Placing the plant in a room with a humidifier is also a great way to ensure its humidity needs.
Soil – Having the right soil mix is very crucial for the growth of the plant. This is because although the plant thrives on humidity and moisture its roots can easily get damaged by water. The soil mix should fibrous enough to allow quick-draining of water from its roots. A potting mix made of orchid bark, perlite, soil, and other chunky compositions is a perfect blend for promoting healthy growth for the plant. The pH level of the soil should also be monitored to avoid struggle. The soil mix needs to have a pH level of 6.5 to promote healthy growth.
