Anthurium decorating tips

If you are looking for a way to spruce up any room in your home and add exotic flair, you should consider an Anthurium bouquet. They are one of the longest lasting of all tropical flowers and they are known to bloom throughout the year as potted plants. Provided, of course, that you offer them the right conditions. The right temperature, potting mix, lighting and fertilizer will go a long way when it comes to keeping these plants happy.

Keep out of reach

An Anthurium plant will not only boast amazing blooms, but it will also enrich your environment with its lush foliage. These flowers are known and loved for their long stems that reach up to 20 inches. The spathe is the colourful part of the plant. It can be green, pink, red, white or peach. There are even two-tone varieties. This plant is poisonous which means that you should keep it away from children and pets. Decorate your home with care and make sure that the flowers are well out of reach.

Away from food

While it might be tempting to decorate your buffet or food table with an Anthurium bouquet, this is not recommended. As mentioned above, these flowers are toxic which means that you do not want it to come in contact with your food. The last thing you want is for one of your dinner guests to end up with health problems due to their food becoming contaminated by the toxins in these flowers.

Pairing options

When creating an Anthurium bouquet, you have plenty of pairing options. It is best to pair them with other tropical blooms such as Orchids, Proteas, Bird of Paradise flowers or even ginger blooms. You don’t need to use too many tropical flowers in a single bouquet. You can select one or two for your arrangement to highlight the beauty of your Anthuriums.

If you are ever in doubt with regards to flower or colour pairing, remember that these blooms look perfectly lovely all on their own. You can place a few stems in a vase and enjoy! You can even create a bud flower arrangement using a single Anthurium stem.
