Anthurium with red heart shaped leaves
Anthuriums are relatively easy to grow plants with attractive foliage and long lasting flowers. These plants are durable and will survive as an indoor foliage plant for a remarkable period of time, even under adverse conditions.
Anthuriums grow best with day temperatures of 78 to 90 F, and night temperatures of 70 to 75 F. Night temperatures between 40 to 50 F can result in slow growth and yellowing of lower leaves. Anthuriums will not tolerate frost or freezing conditions. Anthuriums prefer a growing media that is coarse and well drained. The potting media should be of a peat moss base with a 1:1:1 ratio of peat moss, pine bark and perlite.
Plants need to be watered thoroughly and allowed to dry slightly before watering again. Allowing the plant to dry out will greatly slow down the growth cycle, while over watering can also cause root damage and sudden yellowing of leaves. Anthuriums are usually kept indoors and take as much indirect light as you can provide them. Lower levels of light will slow down or cease flower production.
Dicentra or Bleeding Heart Plant
Bleeding hearts are graceful woodland plants that do best in light shade, comfortable temperature and in well-drained soil. Their ferny foliage appears in early spring, followed by pink or white flowers that are arranged along the stem like little hearts decorations.
