Repotting Anthurium Plants
Anthurium plants are very easy to grow and they require little attention from you. They do not need much water or fertilizers. Anthuriums are not drought tolerant like some other succulents. You may want to give them a few months off every once in awhile if you have been watering them too often or neglecting their needs.

Repotting Anthuriums – How To Do It?
1) First thing you will need is a container large enough to hold your new plant(s).
A good size for a single plant would be 3 feet long x 4 inches wide x 6 inches tall. A larger container could work well with multiple plants.
2) Next, you will need to choose a soil type.
You can use regular potting soil or Miracle Grow. Both types of soils are fine for anthuriums. Some people prefer one over the other though so it’s best to experiment first before making a decision.
3) Finally, you’ll want to decide where you’d like your plant(s) to go when they’re done growing in their new containers.
Sunlight for anthuriums is a must! If they don’t get enough natural sunlight, they will become weak and start to display symptoms of shock which can ultimately lead to death. You will also need to decide if you’d like to place your new plant in your yard or inside your home. This is a matter of preference but it’s important to keep in mind that if you plan on putting it outside, it will need to be able to endure whatever your climate conditions may be.
Anthurium plant problems
Anthurium plant problems can be separated into simple and complex issues. Some of these problems can be solved with the skills you already have. Others may require the help of a professional. Knowing the difference between the two can save you time, money, and most importantly, your plant.
Oftentimes, anthuriums get pests and diseases just like any other plants.
