Anthurium Bakeri Care:
Origin: From Guatemala to Colombia.First described by Joseph Dalton Hooker in 1876.
Light: Bright indirect light.
Water: Allow the top inch of soil to dry between watering.
Temperature: Best grown in daytime temperatures 25 to 32 C, and night temperatures of 21 to 24 C.
Humidity: Loves higher humidity. Above 70% is ideal.
Soil: Can be grown in Spagnum moss with a slow release fertaliser.Grows well in a lighter, airy soil. An Aroid Mix is best. Heavier soils will hold water and make the plant prone to root rot.
Fertiliser: Weakly, Weekly! Small amounts on a weekly basis. I use a combo of slow release fertiliser and a plant food/seaweed liquid feed at quarter strength on a weekly basis. Back off in colder months when the plant is not growing.If you are growing in Spagnum moss alone. Remember that the plant is mostly dependant on you providing nutrients to it.
Propagation: From seed or plant division. It’s red fruit sets without pollination and has a high germination rate. Making it a popular choice for first time growing from seed.
Flower: Pale yellow/green lance shaped Spathe, 2-5.5cm long. The creamy white spadix ranges between 2-11cm long and 5-15mm in diameter at the base. Red pointed, berry like fruit that is approx 6mm long are a feature of this plant.
Pests: A hardy plant that is prone to most common pests. Mealy bugs, Spider Mites and Thrips are all an issue. Grasshoppers are another to watch out for and will litterally eat the leaves back to nothing.
