Secondly, why are the leaves on my anthurium turning brown? Improperly watering your anthurium can lead to root rot or other fungal problems that can also cause the leaves of your plant to turn brown. If you notice the roots of your plant have blackened in color or become mushy and slimy, you'll need to act quickly.
Likewise, how often should you water your anthurium?
Let the soil dry out in between watering. If you live in a hot area, water about once every 2 to 3 days; if you live in a rainy area, then water as necessary. Most importantly, the anthurium requires proper drainage. Anthurium roots should be moist but not soggy.
How much sun does an anthurium need?
Anthuriums need medium to bright light to bloom, but they will survive and grow (but not flower) in low light conditions. Choose a spot near a sunny window, but not in harsh direct sunlight (early morning or late afternoon sun is generally OK). Water: Keep the soil just barely moist but not soggy.
