In-Depth Care Guide

The velvet cardboard anthurium isn’t fussy when it comes to growing indoors in pots. However, it has a few care requirements to thrive. If you meet its needs, the plant will grow for many years and produce spectacular patterned foliage.
Let’s look in more detail at how to care for your Anthurium clarinervium houseplant.

In the growing season, you may have to water your Anthurium clarinerviumas often as once or twice a week. In the fall and winter, you need to water less often—maybe as little as every few weeks. The general rule for watering an anthurium is this—only water when the top 1” to 2” (2.5 – 5 cm) is dry.
Before watering a velvet cardboard anthurium, check the soil for dryness. Poke your finger about an inch into the soil. If the potting medium is dry, then your plant needs watering. If you detect some moisture, wait a few days before checking again. But, always let the soil be your guide for when to water.
Another top tip for watering your Anthurium clarinerviumis to water less often and thoroughly. Giving the soil a deep drench ensures that the roots get properly hydrated. After soaking the soil, allow all the excess water to drain out before putting the plant back in its bright location.
