Divide and Transplant Your Anthurium

An anthurium plant, or better known as a flamingo flower, is a great indoor house plant. They produce heart shaped flowers that can be red, pink or white depending on the species. Many people will choose an anthurium plant because they are easy to grow and maintain.

While there is some work to be done on the plant, like pruning, dividing and transplanting, it can be easily accomplished.

Dividing anthurium Plants

Anthurium plants will produce flowers year round. They will blossom for 8 week time periods, and with proper light and watering, they will continue to do so for many years. However, when you notice that your plants stop producing flowers, you will need to divide them into different pots. Cut a few leaves off, as well as the roots, and transplant the division into a new pot.

Transplanting Anthurium Plants

When transplanting the anthurium, move it into a pot that is just a little larger than the previous pot. Add some peat moss to the soil mixture so that it will hold a little water while the roots are establishing themselves. After that, you can water the plant when the soil is dry. Feed the new plant once every two weeks and then once a month.
