How to use the Anthurium Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy! start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits.
Also, remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Anthurium soil. Add a small layer of Anthurium mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Anthurium soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Anthurium soil.
Lightly pat the Anthurium mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Anthurium mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
Why the Anthurium mix works.
As Anthuriums are epiphytic and usually have larger roots, there is lots of coconut husk and orchid bark to allow space for that. Anthuriums are prone to rot, so with the added activated carbon and perlite, a combination of aeration and purification is happening in the soil at any time. This greatly combats the risk of root rot. The perfect anthurium mix!

The original habitat of the Anthurium plants
The Anthurium is a slow-growing plant favouring humid conditions, usually found in tropical forests in Central & South America. Most species of Anthurium are climbing plants and have thick, epiphytic roots. They require a gritty mix with thicker chunks to support these roots.
How to care for Anthurium plants
As they are native to tropical rainforests, they prefer higher humidity and regular watering. Unlike alocasia, you should let the top few centimetres of the soil dry out before watering again. Do regularly mist your anthurium if you live in a dry environment.
Anthuriums prefer indirect bright light, brighter light helps produce big, healthy flowers. Do not keep it in full sun as the leaves will burn.
