Anthurium Characteristics:

Anthurium, also known as anthurium, has become a popular indoor plant in homes due to its adaptability and a variety of species introduced over the years. Originating from the forests of Columbia and belonging to the Araceae family, this plant has evolved into different colors, shapes, and sizes. While its cultivation was once considered challenging, advancements in care knowledge have made it widespread. Optimal placement involves positioning the anthurium near windows, in well-lit areas without direct sunlight, as increased light enhances flowering, provided the plant is shielded from drafts.


Homemade Natural Fertilizer:

For effective fertilization of anthurium during its active growth period (spring to autumn), a liquid chemical fertilizer for flowering plants can be applied bi-weekly. Alternatively, a completely natural homemade fertilizer can be prepared, avoiding the use of chemical products.


  • Peels of three bananas (rich in phosphorus and potassium, aiding soil moisture)
  • One clove of garlic (an excellent fungicide and bactericide)
  • Neutral detergent
  • One liter of water


  1. Cut the banana peels into small pieces and place them in a bowl with the garlic.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the bottom of a plastic bottle after removing the top.
  3. Add a small amount of neutral detergent, promoting decomposition without harm to the plant.
  4. Pour one liter of water into the bottle and place it in a cool, dry place, covered, for approximately 48 hours.
  5. Filter the resulting liquid and slowly pour it onto the soil of the anthurium, ensuring proper absorption.
