An anthurium plant, possibly 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. Plus, you can divide and transplant your anthurium to produce more plants.

Dividing Anthurium Plants

Anthurium plants can flower year round. However, the produce the most blossoms for about three months. Although they can last many years, they may stop producing flowers at some point and this is another great time to divide them to improve health. To do so, simply 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 move to once a month once it is established.
