1. Bright Indirect Sunlight

Anthurium villenaorum grows on tall trees in their natural habitat, so they get bright diffused sunlight from the forest canopy.

Generally, Anthurium villenaorum requires medium to bright indirect sunlight for 6-7 hours daily.

As regular anthuriums,  Anthurium villenaorum loves locations with partial shade. So you can offer a semi-shaded spot if there are Anthurium villenaorum plants indoors. 

Anthurium-Villenaorum-exposing-to-sunlight
Anthurium plants need partial shade or filtered indirect sunlight.

Like Orchids, this epiphyte plant likes to grow under the shade of other houseplants, so it is not prone to direct or high sunlight exposure.

Your Anthurium villenaorum may develop mild to severe unhealthy symptoms if exposed to unfavorable lighting conditions.

Symptoms of Light Deficiencies 

  • Low light causes chlorophyll pigment levels to decline, which severely slows photosynthesis and causes the dark green hue to fade.
  • The plant can not get enough sun nutrients, producing small, bleached, and straggly foliage.
  • Light deficiency also can dull the leaf and flower color due to chlorophyll deficiency. 
  • It can cause this houseplant to produce fewer, smaller flowers, or sometimes, the plant fails to bloom.
  • It causes stunted, dull, and leggy growth of the plant as a whole. 

Symptoms of Hight-Intensity Light

  • High transpiration occurs as a result of the leaf’s water loss causing leaves and stems to curl and drool.
  • Brown and yellow patches can appear all over the leaves.
  • Burning of leaves or scorching leaves can be another symptom.
  • When touched, the plants feel dry and crispy due to the low water content in the plant body.  

Tips to Provide Proper Lighting Condition for Anthurium Villenaorum

  • If you grow your Anthurium villenaorum outside, place it under a tree where it will receive the shade and diffuse the bright sunlight.
  • You can also place it more than three feet away from a South window.
  • Find a spot in your room that is bright enough that you can read a book. 
  • Continue rotating your plant now and then so that each part of the plant receives the required light. 
  • You can also cover your plant with curtains if you feel your plant is receiving a lot of sunlight. 
  • Place your plant near the window with bright and diffused sunlight during winter because the sun is not harsh during winter.

Pro tip!! If your place is dark, use artificial lights like full spectrum grow lights but be sure to place it about 15 feets away to avoid high intensity light. 

2. Moderate Watering

Please do not make the same mistake as my friend who watered Anthurium villenaorum daily, thinking it is a tropical plant. 

Generally, Anthurium villenaorum needs weekly watering during summer and spring and twice a week in winter. 

Also, in winter, you can wait till the soil goes completely dry to start watering. 

The watering schedule for this plant heavily depends on temperature and light intensity. If both of these factors are high, increase the weekly watering schedule.

Anthurium villenaorum shows clear symptoms if the ideal watering conditions are neglected and unmet.

Symptoms of Underwatering Symptoms of Overwatering
Plant will become droppyDifficulty in breathing for roots
Change in leaf color from grey to yellowRoot rot and yellow or brown color leaves
Leaves will start to wiltLeaves will look limpy and smushy

Tips to Water Anthurium Villenaorum Properly

  • Once the top 25 percent of the soil dries, you can water your Anthurium villenaorum.
  • It would be best if you continued watering until water drains out from the pothole.
watering-anthurium
Anthurium plants need double water requirements during the growing seasons.
  • Avoid watering leaves and stems because it increases the risk of fungal infections.
  • Keep the soil moist rather than watery because watery soil can drown the plant.
  • Empty the water collected on the saucer of the plant’s pot after it gets full. 

Pro tip!! Insert your finger or a stick 2 inch deep into the soil to inspect the moisture before watering Antherium villenaorum.

3. Warm Temperature

The Anthurium villenaorum comes from the native tropical forest of Peru and Ecuador, meaning they need warm temperatures all year round without snow.

Generally, Anthurium Villenaorum requires a temperature ranging from 18 to 25 degrees Celsius (64-77 Fahrenheit).

However, it can not tolerate temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius (50 Fahrenheit).

Your Anthurium villenaorum shows slow growth rates and dropping of leaves when the temperature goes extremely cold.

temperatures-on-different-conditions
Anthurium plants love warm temperatures.

Besides, leaves start to turn yellow or grey, and you can also notice some wilting of leaves. If your room temperature becomes unusually hot or cold, your plant may face some severe problems. 

Low TemperatureExtreme Temperature
Leaves turn yellow or greyLeaves turn yellow with brown margins
Wilting of leavesDrooping and falling off leaves to lose surface area releasing to water
Slow growth ratesDrying and wilting of leaves

Tips to Maintain the Optimum Temperature Condition

  • Your Anthurium Villenaorum can not tolerate extremely cold weather so refrain from keeping it outsides during winter. 
  • Also, you must withdraw your plant from the hot draft and cold draft indoors.
  • Whenever winter approaches, retire your plant from the snowy windshield. 
  • Investing in a good frost blanket or a heating pad helps your plant get a healthy temperature.  Building a greenhouse also can be a good option.
  • You can also apply mulch in late spring and early fall. 

Being a tropical plant, Anthurium villenaorum befriends humidity, and stable high humid will all requirements for your plant to thrive. 

Generally, Anthurium villenaorum grows the best in high humidity levels ranging from 60% to 70%.

It can also tolerate humidity above 70%, but you must ensure the humidity level is comfortable for you. Besides, can also handle humidity levels of nearly 50%, making it an easy plant to grow indoors.

If the plant receives unbalanced humidity, you can notice the following symptoms.

Symptoms of Low Humidity

  • The plant receives discoloration in leaves along their edges and tips.
  • The plant will not grow properly, resulting in stunted growth of the plant. Moreover, new leaves will also look deformed.
  • The leaves will become brown and start to curl down or inwards.
  • Wilting of stems and leaves is also a noticeable symptom.

Symptoms of High Humidity

  • High humidity can also cause root rot.
  • Fungus and bacterias love humid areas, so the risk of fungal and bacterial infection also increases.
guttation-on-anthurium
Anthurium releases lots of guttation.
  • Development of white mold in leaves and flowers of the plant.
  • Plants can not grow properly, so their growth cycle slows down.

Tips to Maintain Ideal Humidity for Anthurium Villenaorum

  • You can invest in a hygrometer to check the humidity level and a humidifier to increase the humidity near the plant.
  • Place your plant with other tropical plants to increase humidity around them.
  • You can also keep a pebble tray under the plant.
  • You can also perform misting leaves with 1-2cups of water in the morning to boost the humidity.
  • To tackle excess humidity, place your plant in a well-ventilated room.
  • Last but not least, you can grow your plant in a kitchen or bathroom where humidity is naturally high.

Note: The more the water stays in the leaf, the more the risk for fungal or bacterial diseases. 

5. Well-draining Soil

When it comes to the growing medium, Anthurium villenaorum is very forgiving. This plant is not fussy about soil as it can grow in soilless materials like moss or bark. 

The soil type is not a big deal as long as it drains out and contains organic substances. I have grown an Anthurium Villeanaorum in a simple peat mix.

You can also consider using a well-draining, aerated soil rich in organic matter with a neutral pH of 5.5-6.5 for Anthurium villenaorum.

Anthurium-plants-in-pots
Well-draining soil helps Anthuriums to remain safe from overwatering.

Choosing a well-draining soil stems from the plant’s sensitivity to overwatering. This type of soil enables the roots to get enough water and drain excess water, preventing root rot.

You can grow your Anthurium villenaorum in a peat-based potting mix, a pertile-based potting mix, or a non-soil growing mix. 

DIY Potting for Anthurium villenorum! Combine 2 parts Orchid mix, 1 part peat, and 1 part pertile.

If you want to buy the mix in stores, my top picks are as follows.

6. Bi-monthly Fertilization

Anthurium villenaorum is a light feeder, and a mild dose of fertilizer is very beneficial for this plant. 

You can use an all-purpose houseplant fertilizer diluted to one-quarter of its strength once every 3 to 4 months.

Also, nitrogen-rich fertilizers help the plants grow healthy and beautiful leaves. 

You can also opt for organic fertilizers also. I prefer organic fertilizers made by earthworms because they are rich in nutrients. 

Anthurium-plant-with-packets-of-fertilizers
Anthurium plants are average food eaters.

Feeding phosphorus fertilizer in the growing season will help your plant bloom. Be sure to use liquid fertilizers because they are easy to apply, and the plant will absorb them easily.

Don’t expect that heavy fertilization can help your plant grow faster. Over-dosing of fertilizer will burn the roots and leaves of this plant.

Consequences of Overfertilization

  • Overfertilization causes the burning of leaves and roots of the plant.
  • Wilting and yellowing of the leaves along with poor growth of the plant.
  • You can also see a layer of fertilizer in the topsoil of the pot.
  • Flowers will stop blooming, and in extreme conditions, defoliation can occur.

Here are some fertilizers that I recommend for your Anthurium villenaorum

Tips to Fertilize Anthurium Villenaorum

  • Always dilute the fertilizer to a quarter of its strength to prevent fertilizer burn.
  • Cater your plants only in Summer and Spring.
  • Avoid contacting the leaves and stems of plants; try to add fertilizers at the base of the plant.
  • Water your plant overnight before using fertilizers because it helps absorb the fertilizer.
  • If your plant starts to bloom, use phosphorus fertilizers for healthy flowers.

7. Annual Repotting

Pots are crucial when planting because they hold the nutrients necessary for the plant and help in moisture retention and water drainage.

You can repot your Anthurium villenaorum in spring or summer once every two years.

Anthurium plants require repotting to protect their roots and retain their small shape.

You can consider repotting the plant if you notice a slight bulge at the pot’s side.

Anthurium-Villenaorum-grown-in-nursery
You need to prefer 1-2 wider pot than the previous.

Moreover, the roots of your Anthurium villenaorum also circle at the soil’s surface and can also come from the pot’s drainage hole. 

After noticing these symptoms, you should again replace your plant with a 2 or 3 inches larger pot with fresh soil mix.

You can use pots made from terracotta or clay. However, avoid using plastic as roots can not breathe properly, and water does not dry out easily, resulting in root rot. 

Instruments Required to Repot Anthurium Villenaorum

Before repotting your plant, check the following tools that are essential during repotting.

Materials RequiredSpecification
Fresh potting mixTo prepare soil mix for planting
Gardening Gloves To avoid hands getting dirty and also to avoid infection
Pruning shears To cut extended roots and leaves
Garden trowelTo take soil out and pour in the pot
Garden ForkTo loosen and turn over soil
Planting PotsFor planting the plant

Steps to Repot Anthurium Villenaorum

  • Water your plant before repotting because it makes the roots ready to adapt.
  • Get a new planter larger than the previous one and ensure it has drainage holes.
  • Loosen and scoop the top 25% of the soil using a fork or garden trowel.
  • Now grab the stem firmly and take the plant off delicately.
  • Inspect the roots and cut off any infected roots with sterilized pruning shears. 
  • Next, grab the new pot and layer it with some pebbles and new soil mix halfway to the pot.
  • Place this Anthurium at the center and fill the rest of the pot with the mix by gently pressing.
  • Lastly, water your plant thoroughly and place it where it was previously.

Note: Your plant may wilt and droop due to shock but don’t worry it will recover naturally after a few days. 

8. Rare Pruning

Anthurium Villenaorum is a small plant with a slow growth rate. So, you do not need to prune this plant often because of its size. 

Pruning Anthurium Villenaorum once every two or three years is enough.

If you start noticing a lot of dead and discolored leaves, it’s time to prune. Similarly, if you think your plant is getting bushy, you can also start pruning.

If the plant is not groomed for a long time, it will lose its vigor and appear fuzzy. You need to prune to encourage the growth of new foliage. 

Pruning helps grow more leaves, removes the danger of fungal infections, and promotes healthy growth. You can also change the plant appearance by removing the base leaves.

Steps to Prune Anthurium Villenaorum

  • Examine your plants and decide the parts that need to get pruned.
  • Collect your pruning essentials like shears and gloves and sterilize them.

  • Look at the base for any suckers or weeds and remove them from the plant.
  • Wipe your pruning essentials to avoid rust and infections for the new plants.

Tips to Prune Anthurium Villenaorum

  • After inspecting the plant, always start pruning from the plant’s lower leaves.
  • Flowers can take essential nutrients from the plant, so you can prune the flowers if they are not useful.
  • Do not prune unnecessarily to create shapes because Anthurium villenaorum is a slow grower.
  • Do not prune in winter because the plant’s growth cycle is very slow during that period.
  • Collect the cuttings to grow a new plant in the near future.

Anthurium Villenaorum: All About Growth Rate

Anthurium villenaorum is an epiphytic plant that prefers the tropical region and can live up to 5 years or more.

It is a slow-growing plant and can reach up to 47 inches to 70 inches ( 1.2 to 1.8m) indoors and outdoors.

The leaves also feature distinct light and green-whitish veins. As they mature, the leaf color turns from pale green to dark green. 

A mature Anthurium villenaorum can have leaves that can grow up to 29 inches.  

Besides foliage, this plant also produces flowers that bloom during Spring and Summer. The flowers include white or green spathes that are modified from leaf blades.

Normally, these flowers can last up to 3 months.  

The plant is best known for its beautiful foliage and has no attractive flowers. In case you want to promote flowers in this plant, keep it in an area under good sunlight before the blooming season.

Personally, I choose to cut the flowers because they can consume the vital energy of the plants.  But whatever floats your boat, you can either keep it or cut it.

Toxicity of Anthurium Villenaorum

The biggest downside of Anthurium villenaorum is that it is toxic to humans and animals. Letting your pets or baby around this plant is a big NO-NO.

According to Pet Poison Helpline, Anthurium villenaorum is toxic to pets.

If you own a pet home, you need to think before bringing this plant home. The leaves of Anthurium villenaorum are filled with Calcium Oxylate crystals that can harm both humans and animals.

These crystals get inside the alimentary canal of pets and humans and cause irritations in the body. 

It can also irritate the skin or eye when in contact. Therefore, gloves and goggles are essential when handling this plant.

1. Propagation via Root Division

Root division is one of the best methods for propagating this plant because it is very straightforward. It includes has a high success rate, and the offsprings grow quickly.

All you have to do is take a section of a plant with roots.

Here is a step-by-step process to propagate Anthurium villenaorum using root division.

  • Prepare a well-draining potting mix with a pH of 5.5-6.5 and a pot before propagation.
root-cutting
Root cutting needs to be healthy for propagation.
  • Inspect the pot along with the plant and take the plant out of the pot carefully.
  • Dust off the roots from the soil and watch out for any baby roots delicately.
  • Cut the offshoots from the mother root using a sterilized knife or shears and place them in a clean place.
  • Replant those offshoots carefully in a new planter with a peat-based potting mix. 
  • Place them in a shaded location and water them every two days.

2. Propagation via Stem Cuttings

I prefer propagation of Anthurium villenaorum using stem cuttings because it is easy and does it does not require us to unpot the plant. Similarly, the size of the plant also remains the same. 

Make sure the stem you choose has at least two nodes.

Here are the steps for cutting the stem.

  • Inspect a healthy stem with nodes free from pets and infection in the plant.
  • Cut the stem into multiple pieces with at least two nodes in each section. 
propagation by water
Adding rooting hormone can boost the rooting process.
  • Prune the stem slightly below the nodes and make an incision at an angle of 45 degrees for each cutting.
  • Remove any excess leaves or flowers, keeping only one or two leaves on the stem.

You can perform propagation using stems in either soil or water medium. Both methods are slightly different in execution. 

1. Propagation in Soil Medium

Propagating Anthurium villenaorum in soil medium is a conventional method and easy to continue. If you are ready to go, keep these things in mind.

  • You can use a rooting hormone or cinnamon powder along with well-draining soil.
  • Stick the stems at 90 degrees and an inch deep into a pot containing fresh soil mix.
  • Also, ensure you have kept the potting mix moist before propagation at around 25 to 30 degrees C.
  • Keep the stems in the shade; later, you can continue watering the stems every 2 to 3 days. 
  • After 4 to 6 weeks, roots will fully develop, and you can transfer them into a large pot.

2. Propagation in Water Medium

You can also use water if you do not have a proper soil mix for propagation. Plants grown in glass jars also look aesthetically pleasing.

  • First of all, prepare the cuttings and take a transparent jar filled with clean distilled water.
  • Dip the cuttings in the water and submerge the bottom completely with the water.
  • Make sure the leaves are not flooded to avoid rotting in leaves.
anthurium-in-soil
Propagation from water to soil is a common process.
  • Keep the jar in a place with bright indirect sunlight to avoid burning leaves.
  • Monitor the plants every couple of days and change the water after it gets dirty.
  • You also need to remove any yellow or mushy cuttings to reduce the infection in other healthy cuttings.
  • After noticing some roots development, you can place them into a fresh well-draining potting mix.

3. Propagation via Seeds

It is possible to grow an Anthurium villenaorum using seeds, but it is not the best choice for all. This Anthurium rarely produces fruits, so getting seeds might be challenging.

Growing this plant from seeds requires constant care and proper planting. Therefore, if you are ready for a challenge, you should choose this method in the following process.

  • Submerge the seeds in water overnight or wet cocopeat before planting.
  • Sow the seeds in a fresh, nutrient-rich soil mix by not overcrowding them.
anthurium-seed-germination
Germinating anthurium seeds need additional care.
  • Maintain a warm environment of around 25 to 30 degrees C near the container.
  • Provide enough humidity and sunlight near the seedlings to help them germinate.
  • Also, you need not forget to water the soil regularly and use fertilizers to speed up the growing process.
