Comprehensive Care Guide for Your Purple Heart

Light Requirements

This Anthurium variety flourishes in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent leaf and bloom damage, but make sure it receives enough light to maintain its vibrant color.

Watering and Humidity

Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the topsoil feels dry to the touch. High humidity is crucial—consider using a humidifier or a pebble tray to increase moisture around the plant.

Temperature and Environment

Ideal temperatures range from 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Protect the Purple Heart from drafts and extreme temperatures to avoid stress.

Fertilization Strategy

Feed with a high-phosphorus fertilizer every two months during the growing season to promote vibrant flowering. Reduce feeding in the winter when growth slows.

Repotting and Soil Composition

Repot every 2-3 years in spring using a well-draining, airy soil mix designed for aroids. This promotes healthy root development and plant vitality.
