  • How to make a flower bloom

If the anthurium does not turn yellow, it grows actively, but refuses to bloom, you need to revise the rules for caring for a flower. It is important to remember that this is a rather capricious plant growing in the tropics.

Pay attention to the temperature

The plant forms flower buds only at a temperature of 20-21 ° C. Most often, problems arise in the winter, if the anthurium is on the windowsill close to the glass. But too high a temperature also prevents flowering. This plant needs to provide stable temperature conditions.

Is Anthurium Light Enough?

The plant loves bright but diffused light. Under natural conditions, it grows in bright areas, shaded by trees and tropical shoots. But direct sunlight for this plant is dangerous, they can cause burns and overheating of the foliage.

For a flower, it is better to choose windows located on the south or west side. In bright light after lunch, the plant is better to pritenyat, and in the winter to highlight. It is important to remember that anthurium should not be put into drafts and near heating devices.

Watering and humidity

For irrigation you need to use only warm and separated water. Do not allow the soil to dry out or excess moisture, otherwise the plant may die.

To create a comfortable environment, anthurium must have a high level of humidity. The leaves should be sprayed at least 2 times a day, you can also put a container with water next to the flower. If the plant is comfortable, “tears” can appear on the foliage. This is a normal anthurium reaction to the right care.

If you take care of the flower and follow all the rules of care, it will actively grow and be sure to please with lush flowering. It is important to remember about temperature, watering, humidity, light and, if necessary, to organize artificial lighting.

Duration of flowering anthurium

With proper care, anthurium blooms for several weeks. In addition, flowering can continue all year round. In addition, various varieties of male happiness bloom at different times. They can be divided into:

  • those, which bloom begins in spring and lasts until the middle of the autumn season,
  • those that bloom in autumn and finish blooming in spring,
  • that don't bloom at all,
  • varieties that bloom modestly and briefly, but have gorgeous beautiful foliage.

If the anthurium does not begin to bloom, first of all, it is necessary to study its varietal characteristics, perhaps this is one of the non-flowering varieties.

How to understand that Anthurium will soon bloom

In the case of male happiness, flower stalks are formed from the axillary formations of each individual leaf. Due to the fact that root children are actively forming in anthurium, flowers can be of various sizes. Mother bush gives flowers larger, kids - a little less.

Arrows are formed at the base of the bush: green with time turns into a leaf, and red is the future bud. With the beginning of flowering on the plant is formed wrapped sepal. After the spike is formed, which grows, and raises the bud above the foliage. When the anthurium blooms, the petal opens and opens a long yellow stamen.

The reasons for the lack of flowering

If the anthurium stops blooming, you need to find out the reason. Most often, flowering stops due to non-compliance with the rules of care. Common causes are:

  • waterlogging or insufficient watering,
  • the pot is bigger or too tight
  • unsuitable soil
  • lack of light or its excess,
  • wrong temperature conditions
  • delayed transplants,
  • drafts,
  • frequent flower movements,
  • insufficient air humidity
  • diseases and pests.

Lighting errors

Flower Male happiness loves scattered sunlight. It is not recommended to place the plant on the window on the south side, where bright light prevails, and there is no protection from direct sunlight that can cause anthurium burn. As a result, the foliage begins to turn yellow, curl and crumble. As a result, this leads to the fact that male happiness does not bloom. In the shade also should not keep the flower, otherwise it also does not bloom.

Most of all to accommodate anthurium, windows that look to the east or west are suitable. In the summer, the hot bush should be pritenyat to avoid sunburn. In the autumn-winter period, the flower should be provided with additional lighting using fitolamps.

Wrong temperature

Another factor contributing to the fact that the plant blooms poorly or does not give flowers at all, is the wrong temperature. While caring for anthurium, it is important to know that even though Male happiness is a heat-loving tropical exot, it endures the heat poorly. In winter, the flower is at rest and bookmarks new buds. Therefore, at this time it is impossible to allow the temperature to rise above +20 degrees, which can lead to the absence of flowering.

In order to stimulate the formation of new hands, it is recommended to maintain the temperature level at + 15-17 degrees all the time while the rest period begins, starting in November and lasting 60-90 days.

Anthurium buds are formed in mid-February. The most suitable air temperature for a plant at this time is + 18-20 degrees. In the summer season, for men happiness, the most suitable temperature is kept at around + 20-25 degrees.

It should not be allowed in the room with the appearance of drafts, because of which the buds may not appear.

Invalid watering

The reason for the lack of flowering in anthurium may be overwetting. Excess moisture leads to rotting of the roots, which can lead not only to the long-awaited expectation of new flowers that are unlikely to appear, but even to the death of the plant.

Drying the soil also adversely affects the exotic. As a result, due to improper insufficient or excessive watering of the flower, male happiness does not bloom. To avoid this, it is necessary to establish a systematic irrigation. On the fact that it is time to water the plant, indicates a dried top layer of the substrate.

You can not use for watering anthurium cold water. It is necessary that it is slightly warm or cooled to room temperature. It is necessary to use soft water, pre-settled for five days or filtered. Once in 7-15 days, it is advisable to acidify the irrigation water by adding 2-3 drops of lemon juice per liter of liquid.

Pot does not fit

Improper capacity can also be the reason for the lack of flowering. When choosing a pot for a plant, you need to remember that anthurium is an epiphyte that has a poorly developed root system. Therefore, it will not fit a large capacity. In it, the flower will spend all its strength on the growth and development of the roots and you can forget about flowering.

Too small pot is also not an option. It can also be the cause of the lack of flowering. At the time that the anthurium is transplanted, indicate the tips of the roots protruding from the drainage holes. The plant should be transplanted into a compact low pot 2-3 cm more than the previous one, otherwise after transplantation, male happiness may not bloom. It is recommended to use a plastic container. The clay pot is blown and passes moisture through the pores, which can cause the root system to freeze during the winter period.

Wrong fertilizer mode

The reason why anthurium does not bloom may be an overabundance or lack of nutrients. No need to feed the flower in the first year after purchase or transplant. At this time, he has enough nutrients contained in fresh soil mixture. Further feeding should be carried out regularly.

In order for the flower to bloom, during the growing season, which falls in spring and summer, you need to apply fertilizer every 15 days. For dressings it is recommended to use liquid mineral preparations. After flowering from autumn to spring, the amount of fertilizing should be reduced to one per month.

In order to acidify the soil in the pot, which contributes to flowering, you need to pour on the surface of the earth a few needles of needles or dry sphagnum.

Other reasons

Another factor due to which anthurium may not bloom is dry air in a room with tropical exotics. To solve the problem, it is necessary to spray a flower separated with warm water 1-2 times a day. It is also worth periodically wiping the foliage with a moistened sponge, thereby moistening it and cleaning it from dust.

In addition, to increase the humidity, you can put a container filled with water next to the plant. In winter, you can hang a wet cloth on the battery. It is recommended to periodically arrange a warm shower for Anthurium, covering the ground with a waterproof material.

If male happiness does not bloom, the cause may be inappropriate soil. The plant prefers loose, breathable, slightly acidic soil. Most suitable for anthurium soil mixture intended for orchids. You can prepare the necessary substrate yourself. To do this, mix:

  • humus,
  • coarse sand,
  • peat bog,
  • different sized pieces of charcoal,
  • pieces of bark,
  • dry half-ripened foliage.

Before use, the resulting soil mixture must be disinfected. To transplant a flower in a new substrate, you need to carefully remove the plant from the pot. Then clean it from the old soil and process it with a fungicide. Remove damaged and rotten roots. Immerse in a growth stimulator for 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle the cutting sites with activated charcoal and plant in fresh soil.

Another reason for the lack of flowering - untimely or improper transplant. Replant the plant should be by transshipment. At the bottom of the pot must be poured drainage layer. Empty cavities should not be filled with a mixture of eucalyptus. Water should be replenished with an anthurium. The excess water drained into the pan is drained.

The purchased flower must be transplanted immediately. In the future, young flowers are transplanted once in 2-3 years, more adults - once every 4 years.

Blossom Masculine happiness may stop because of the many buds that have faded. Therefore, they should be removed and cut off the faded flower arrows.

Bloomed and stopped

If the anthurium does not bloom, although it has bloomed quite actively before, you need to look for the cause in the care provided. Most likely, this was due to increased air temperature, insufficient humidity or disturbed irrigation. If the stop of flowering was provoked by these reasons, it is necessary to normalize the temperature regime and increase the level of humidity.

To anthurium bloom again, you need to adjust the system of irrigation. You can not overmoisten the substrate. It is necessary to water a flower when the top layer of soil dries out.

It will take some time to restore the state of exotic, but if you follow the rules for care, it will again be lulled by many new buds.

Bloom stimulation

To achieve abundant flowering of anthurium you need:

  • provide the flower with the necessary amount of light
  • in winter, keep the temperature in the room with the plant at around 17-19 degrees,
  • for irrigation, use only soft, purified or boiled water cooled to room temperature,
  • prevent overmoistening and drying out of the soil,
  • carry out the transplant procedure in a timely manner and in a suitable container,
  • regularly feed anthurium,
  • maintain high humidity, if necessary, humidify the air in the place with the plant,
  • remove faded flowers.

If, growing up Male happiness, all the rules for care were followed, and the exot is still not growing, you can try to resort to artificial stimulation. To do this, pour the roots with water heated to + 40-50 degrees. To carry out such a procedure should be before the start of active growth at the end of winter. This method will shake the flower and positively affect the formation of inflorescences.

Another option to stimulate flowering is to treat the root system with growth stimulants during transplantation.

Why does anthurium not bloom?

First of all, it is necessary to evaluate the conditions in which the plant is located. Sometimes the anthurium does not bloom due to oversight or mistakes made by the florist. And while they are not corrected, it is not worth waiting for the appearance of anthurium buds.

The discomfort that can affect the culture so that it refuses to bloom is associated with various aspects of the content. It:

  • insufficient or excessively bright, burning plant lighting,
  • low air temperature at the time of the appearance of anthurium buds,
  • prolonged waterlogging of the soil,
  • insufficient watering, leading to drying of the roots, fading of the green part and nutritional deficiencies,
  • excessive air dryness
  • excess or lack of nutrients in the substrate.

Do not forget that the room anthurium extremely rarely forms inflorescences, if too large pot is mistakenly chosen for it.

After all, until the root system completely occupies the entire volume of the substrate due to the plant, the development of the aerial part is suspended.

Not the best way to affect the flowering and stay on the bush flower stalks with already withering inflorescences. Such cobs rob the plant of the strength necessary for the growth and opening of new buds on the anthurium.

How to make anthurium bloom?

Wondering why anthurium flower stalks do not appear, first of all a florist should pay attention to the level of lighting in the place where the pot is. The duration of daylight hours and its intensity have a decisive influence on flowering.

Since the formation and deployment of buds in anthurium occurs in the spring, when the light day is only beginning to lengthen, the plant sometimes does not have enough light. This is expressed in the extrusion of the cuttings of leaves and more pale than usual coloring. In this case, the pot can be moved to a lighter window-sill or use special lamps for lighting.

For room anthurium, it is extremely important to be planted in suitable soil. Often, plants suffer from an overly dense substrate that does not give air and moisture evenly to penetrate to the roots, which accumulates moisture and causes reproduction of all sorts of pathogenic microorganisms.

As a result of illiterate selection of the soil mixture, the plant either dries up or is regularly re-moistened. In a misty tropical forest, so named because of the frequent rains that create haze-like air in the air, anthuriums are found in humid air and soil. But due to the high porosity of the substrate, the root system of the plant does not suffer and, on the contrary, is actively developing. Anthurium, without stopping, blooms. A similar mixture can be made at home by mixing:

  • 2 pieces of humus,
  • 2 parts peat,
  • 1 part perlite,
  • 4 pieces of finished soil for orchids.

If there is no substrate for orchids at hand, it can be replaced with crushed charcoal, steamed coniferous bark and fine gravel to give structure. Such a soil mixture should have an acidity level of 6.5 to 7.0 units.

Planting indoor anthurium in a similar substrate will provide the plant with necessary nutrition, and will not allow the roots to experience a shortage of air and moisture. They will not be squeezed and easily obovyut the whole lump of soil in a pot.

Anthurium needs frequent watering, in which its roots assimilate the entire volume of moisture entering the pot.

In the homeland of the plant, almost constant rains last for 6–9 months, so the dried flower will never bloom. For the comfort of anthurium, the soil is kept moist, but not damp. And the need for watering signals drying the top layer of the substrate.

If the soil for indoor anthurium needs moderately wet, then the best air humidity is close to 100%. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that a semblance of mist in the conditions of an apartment can be created for a non-flowering indoor anthurium, but using all available methods to combat excessive dryness of the air is extremely important.

For this plant irrigate spray, apply household humidifiers and other improvised means. An ordinary drain pan filled with gravel for drainage and filled with water works effectively. Fill a shallow pan with coarse gravel. If you put a pot with indoor anthurium on the surface of a layer of gravel, it should not be in contact with moisture, but the existence of the plant will become more comfortable.

Sometimes indoor plant lovers, diligently watering and replanting their pets, absolutely forget about such a necessary measure as fertilization of home plantings.

When indoor anthurium does not bloom, one of the reasons for this is a lack of nutrients. A loose soil consisting of rather large fragments for anthurium cannot always provide all the elements that are vital for the growth, development and flowering of the culture. Therefore, during the active growing season, from spring to autumn, the plant must be fed.

For this, it is easy to use complex compositions for flowering plants, but it must be remembered that an excess of nitrogen can cause increased foliage growth. Но при этом перекормленный антуриум перестанет цвести. А подчас избыток удобрений вызывает закисание субстрата и развитие на молодых корнях гнили.

Лучше всего для стимуляции появления на антуриуме бутонов подкормить его составом с повышенным содержанием фосфора, элемента крайне важного на стадии цветения и образования завязей. Today, growers are increasingly using granular fertilizers of a long duration of activity. Such funds can be made every three months, and the label should indicate that the dressing is intended for flowering crops.

Bought anthurium stopped blooming

Beginners lovers of tropical plants are often faced with the fact that the anthurium, which was recently purchased and struck with an abundance of peduncles, ceased to bloom. At the same time, and the new foliage on the green pet is not visible. How to help the plant, improve and make anthurium bloom again?

Such an instance, first of all, must be transplanted and give strength. From industrial plantations to the shelves, most houseplants come in transporting pots and a small amount of peaty soil, richly flavored with fertilizers and chemicals. These funds, which stock is designed for a couple of months, make room anthurium bloom. But neither the roots nor the aboveground part, which also supplies food, develops. If you do not take urgent measures, the plant is depleted and often dies.

After transplantation, the pet needs several months to strengthen and build up the root mass. If you maintain proper conditions, in the spring long-awaited flower stalks will appear on the anthurium.

Sometimes flower growers can not wait for the flowering of young plants, not previously pleased owners with bright buds. To provoke such room anthurium on the formation of buds, you can use the methods used in greenhouses.

In late autumn or early winter, anthurium is placed in a room with a temperature of 16–20 ° C. In such a room should be bright, and if necessary you can not abandon the artificial lighting. Watering the plant needs a regular, but not as abundant as in the summer months, when the air is noticeably warmer. The soil must be wet, but in no case wet.

After 1.5–2 months, when the crown is replenished with new shoots, the anthurium is transferred to heat and the watering is increased. The optimum temperature for this period is 22–24 ° C. Anthurium, not bloomed before, will definitely release the first flower stalk. And the subsequent flowering, if you do not forget about proper care and comfort for anthurium, will last about six or eight weeks.

What to do if anthurium does not bloom for a long time

If the plant is too big a pot or, conversely, because of the roots of the earth it is almost invisible, then you need to transplant it. In this case, be sure to take into account several nuances of the correct fit of the anthurium:

  • A pot for growing anthurium needs to be chosen low flat, better plastic, it should be changed no more than once in 3 years.
  • When planting, the roots are deepened no more than 4-5 cm, otherwise they may rot. In this case, the plant will not bloom. Therefore, when transplanting, make sure that the roots are not too deep.
  • You can not cut the roots during transplantation. So that they fit in the pot, you need to choose the appropriate size and depth of the tank. You can only remove rotted or dried up areas.
  • If there is no special substrate for epiphytes, you can prepare the soil yourself. Peat, expanded clay, pine bark, charcoal are mixed into the azalea or begonia soil.
  • Anthurium at home prefers acidic soil, so it is desirable to add coniferous needles to the soil.
  • To stimulate flowering and additional moisture after transplantation, it is recommended to wrap the stems at ground level with moist moss.

Make sure that the anthurium has enough light and heat. Finding out is easy. If the illumination is insufficient, only leaves grow actively in the plant, but their coloring becomes pale. Try to rearrange the flower on the sunny window sill, shading part of the window. Place the pot closer to the heaters to create a comfortable temperature. To stimulate development, it is necessary to constantly warm the ambient air to 25 ° C.

Important! If your anthurium began to bloom, be sure to cut the buds that start to wither. If this is not done, seeds will begin to form and ripen on them, this greatly weakens the flowering plant and inhibits the further formation of buds.

Understand whether the plant has enough moisture. With a lack of moisture, the tips of the leaves begin to dry out, brown spots can form on them. For watering, the water must be separated or passed through a filter. This is necessary in order to prevent the liming of the soil, which is detrimental to the flower. Water anthurium need warm water, and not even at room temperature, and heated to 30-35 ˚ C.

This is best done in the morning so that the water can evaporate during the day. When spraying you need to ensure that large drops of water do not fall on the leaves. It is necessary to spray not only the leaves, but also the roots projecting from the soil.

If mold or green algae appeared on the soil, this means too much moisture. This can lead to rotting of the roots, in which case it is necessary to remove the top layer of soil, pour in fresh soil and reduce watering.

Tip! If ordinary watering and spraying do not help, try to accelerate flowering with a warm bath. To do this, pour hot water into the pan (temperature of about 60 ° C). Warm steam will create a comfortable temperature and humidity for anthurium. The cooled water can be drained. You can arrange such a procedure every 7-10 days.

If all the necessary conditions are met, but the buds are not formed, it is necessary to stimulate their formation with the help of dressings. Begin feeding gradually from mid-winter, first using only half the usual amount of fertilizer for indoor plants. With the beginning of the spring feeding increase. When choosing feedings, one should take into account that nitrogenous fertilizers stimulate active growth of leaves, but inhibit flowering. It is better to choose feed with a high content of phosphorus.

So that fertilizers do not stagnate in the soil, you need to wash it with running water about once a month. It is convenient to do this by washing in the shower not only the leaves, but also the container with the ground. To do this, put the pot without a tray directly into the bath.

The application of all these recommendations and the creation of comfortable conditions for the anthurium will help the plant to bloom, and for a long time you will enjoy these exotic buds.

Probable causes

Anthurium is a tropical plant, so for successful growth and flowering in the apartment it is necessary for it to create conditions as close as possible to the natural ones. In most cases, it does not bloom precisely because of non-compliance with the conditions of detention and violation of the rules of agricultural engineering.

These reasons may be:

Excess lighting. Quite often, the anthurium is placed on the southern window in direct sunlight, mistakenly believing that this would be better. Under natural conditions, the flower grows under the canopy of large trees in partial shade. The bright sun can leave burns on the leaves and even destroy the plant. It must be protected by curtain blinds or transparent curtains. You can move the pot a little from the window sill to avoid the scorching rays. It is advisable to place this culture on the western and eastern windows.

Lack of light. But the placement in a dark place, when the light is insufficient, is also detrimental to the plant.

Perhaps not enough light

Low humidity. Dry air is not typical for tropical forests, so the anthurium does not bloom if the humidity is less than 70-80%. It needs to be sprayed regularly.

Low temperature. For normal development and flowering of anthurium, temperatures above 22 ° C are necessary. If this figure drops to 20 ° C, then the probability of flowering decreases sharply. The flower can not tolerate temperature surges and drafts. If it blows from the window, the plant does not release flower stalks.

High winter temperatures. In winter, from December to February, this culture needs to be at rest at a temperature not higher than + 16 ... + 18 ° С. This is a prerequisite for budding.

Wrong watering. The flower is quite demanding on the mode of watering. He does not like strong waterlogging when the substrate is constantly wet. But the full drying too should not be allowed. It should be watered only after drying of the upper soil layer.

The pot is not in size. Planting capacity for a plant needs a little more than its root system, because flowering will not happen until the roots fill the entire pot. The flower will produce only leaves and babies at the expense of flowering. In too small a pot, he will feel bad and depressed.

Incorrect feeding. Anthurium may not arrange the frequency of fertilizing or the composition of fertilizers.

Dense and heavy soil. If the soil mixture is very dense, then moisture and air are not able to penetrate to the roots. The soil should be light, nutritious and loose.

Perhaps the wrong dressing

Anthurium should not be transplanted during flowering. This procedure is always stressful, and the flower will throw off flower stalks.

How to achieve flowering

What to do in this situation? First of all, you need to correct the mistakes made in the content of anthurium. The following steps should be taken:

To organize the correct lighting, bright enough, but not burning. It is necessary with the beginning of the growing season to ensure the flower day of the duration of at least 12-14 hours. To do this, you can use phytolamps or fluorescent lamps.

To ensure the period of winter sleep with a decrease in temperature to + 16 ... + 18 ° С.

Normalize watering mode. Water must be defended and soft. Once in 30 days it is recommended to water with slightly acidified water.

Monitor the humidity in the room. Regular spraying or placing next to the anthurium pots with water will help. You can put the pot itself in a container with river pebbles, in which water is poured. The ideal option is to use a humidifier. In winter, it is necessary to place the flower away from working heaters.

It is necessary to monitor the humidity in the room.

To produce periodic fertilizing 1 times a month during the growing season with complex fertilizers for orchids. In winter, just 2 times is enough and with a concentration of half less than indicated in the instructions. It must be remembered that this crop does not like nitrogenous fertilizers.

Pick the right ground. Anthurium requires a loose, acidified substrate. You can use the soil mixture for epiphytes. Independently prepare the substrate from humus, peat, perlite and ready soil for orchids (in proportions 2: 2: 1: 4). For acidification, it is desirable to add a little pine needles.

Provide a flower pot of suitable size and volume. Capacity should be 2-3 cm in diameter larger than the root system and rather wide than deep.

Promptly remove old flower stalks so that they do not take away strength from the plant to form seeds.

Perform annual transplants of young plants. A more mature color is 1 transplant in 2-3 years. Bought flowering anthurium must be transplanted at the end of flowering, completely replacing the substrate.

Additional stimulation

How to make anthurium bloom if all necessary conditions are met? The plant continues to act up and does not want to please with flowering. It can be stimulated and forced to release the buds. For this, in early spring you need to do the following:

pour the substrate with water with a temperature of + 45 ... + 50 ° С (not higher),

after 7-10 days in the pan fill the water with a temperature not exceeding 60 ° C,

after complete cooling it should be poured,

repeat again in a week.

A necessary condition is the presence of a good layer of drainage, which will not allow a warm pair to burn tender roots. This procedure will make the flower wake up faster and collect the desired buds.

A capricious and fastidious tropical flower requires strict observance of the conditions of care and maintenance. But the blooming of anthurium is so unusual and luxurious that it is worth all the effort.

Tropical plant

Anthurium - a capricious plantgrowing in a tropical climate. Large, elongated heart-shaped leaves, reaching large sizes, perfectly complement the equally beautiful inflorescences, which can be a variety of colors. Violet, pink, white - more delicate colors, and the most popular of them - scarlet, attracting attention with its colorful shade, will surely please anyone.

There are about 800-900 species of ornamental flowering plants, they all differ in shapes, colors, but the maintenance conditions may differ: if some species are more whimsical, others are not so gentle, and caring for them will be easier, but necessary. Therefore, having such a plant, you need to be sure that he is comfortable at home.

Growth conditions

Some people who want to become owners of an unusual, but capricious plant, face problems that do not allow the plant to bloom and grow in a good and favorable environment. Before you grow anthurium at home, you need to familiarize yourself with the conditions of anthurium growth, the reasons for failure, and find out why it does not bloom.

Reasons why does not anthurium bloom at home, a lot:

  • incorrectly performed transplant
  • lack of space
  • improper watering,
  • low or excessive light,
  • uncomfortable temperature in the house,
  • excess or lack of nutrients
  • plant diseases
  • pests.

All these reasons can lead to the death of your plant, so you need to study them in order to avoid mistakes in the future and ensure the growth of the flower at home.

Improper fit

Landing is recommended in the summer, in the absence of problems with the health of the plant. If the landing was done carefully, but there are no flowers, then something else interferes with development - to be exact - the place where the anthurium is planted.

Because in nature it grows on trunks, tree branches, it receives nutrients from the environment, and the roots are poorly developed. The smaller the capacity where the flower is planted, the less soil there will be between the roots. So the plant will quickly and easily get the nutrients it needs. But too close a pot will also have a negative effect on the plant.

Sometimes the problem may be in the soil itself - inappropriate land will slow down growth or even prevent it from growing. Light and loose earth is comfortable for anthurium so that it does not block the access of oxygen to the roots.

Lack / excess moisture

Since anthurium is a tropical plant, he needs a lot of moistureincluding in the air. Humidity can be increased with the help of special devices, but the alternative can be frequent and abundant wetting of the leaves, through which the plant receives moisture, warm water.

Watering the plant, usually check the top layer of soil, it should be dry. Watering should also be done with water at room temperature without salt impurities, chlorine, plentiful, but not frequent. Water need to use filtered.

Some recommend adding about three drops of lemon juice per liter of water per liter of water: it softens the water for irrigation. Anthurium also prefers a soil with sustained acidity.

Wrong lighting

Many believe that by placing the flower under the scorching rays of the sun, they will provide comfortable conditions for the growth and appearance of inflorescences, but this is not so. With such contact with the sun on the leaves may appear first yellow, then brown spots, then the flower begins to wilt, the leaves fall off, and you should forget about the bright flower buds. Hiding from the sun is also a mistake.

In its natural environment, anthurium receives rays that pass through the foliage of trees with soft and diffused light, so it would be desirable to create such conditions at home. The best sides for the plant are the eastern or western windowsills. In the winter season, artificial light can be used to simulate the rays of a warm sun: fitolamps are a good option, or LED or electrosaving lamps that should be used no more than three hours a day.

Improper temperature

To recreate the home conditions in the house, the plant in winter is usually left alone, watering and moisturizing reduce, the temperature required for growth in the cold months is about 15-20 ° C, not higher. But at the same time, the level of illumination should not fall below normal, if there are few sunny days - to recreate it yourself.

In the spring, a plant rested during the winter should start new shoots, and with them, buds can appear. Then the temperature of its environment should reach about 24 ° C, and watering should be restored to normal, that is more abundant.

Under such conditions, with the correct alternation of seasonal rules, new inflorescences should appear annually.

Fertilizer use

Sometimes for healthy growth is necessary periodically feed anthurium with fertilizers, especially during the flowering period - in summer and spring, when top dressing needs to be administered once a month, you should not forget about it, since this is an important part supporting the nutrition of anthurium.

The fertilizer mixture must be fresh and organic, and the feeding system must be non-combustible. The best vitamins for anthurium - phosphorus and potassium, in reasonable quantities, of course. Существуют различные опрыскиватели, удобрения, специальные составы для цветущих растений, которые можно приобрести в цветочных магазинах.

Если правильный уход не помогает решить проблему с цветением, растение долго не цветет, листья выцветают, цветок становится вялым, вероятно - антуриум заболел. Болезни, в свою очередь, могут вытекать из неправильного ухода или из-за различных вредителей, повредивших цветок.If you get rid of them with the help of special solutions that are sold in special shops, then the plant can be brought into shape using proper care methods.

Diseases can also be cured with solutions that are usually used for a certain time until the flower returns to normal.

The most important thing is attention.

Do not forget to check the health of the plant, is it normal, does it need anything, if yes, provide it with necessary, do not forget about important aspects of supporting your “pet ”’s life, such as:

  • adherence to the regime of feeding,
  • nutrient supply
  • daily care

A healthy plant is distinguished by the succulent color of leaves, on which there is no kind of stains, and flowering. A healthy anthurium will delight with its bright buds in spring and summer, but do not forget about its well-deserved rest during the cold seasons.
