Decorating with anthuriums

Anthuriums are one of the most attractive and appealing tropical flowers of all. They are also known for lasting longer than many other kinds of tropical blooms. As a plant, they will bloom throughout the year if the conditions are favourable. This means that the grower needs to focus on temperature, water, light, and getting the potting mix and fertilizer just right.

These flowers are also known for their lovely foliage and the glossy appearance of the blooms. They are tall flowers with stems reaching up to 15 or even 20 inches. The spathe is the coloured part of the plant and it comes in green, red, pink, peach, white, and even two-tone varieties. The plant is poisonous from root to flower and everything in between. Hence, it’s not the kind of flower that should be kept within reach of children or pets. It’s also a good idea to use them to decorate areas that will not come into contact with food.

Avoid decorating buffet tables or dining tables with these flowers since you wouldn’t want to risk contamination. Instead, set aside a table or a few tables in the corners of the room. Place impressive exotic arrangements on these tables to brighten up the room and impress your guests. This way, they can be enjoyed without running the risk of accidental consumption.

When arranging anthuriums, it’s a good idea to pair them with other tropical flowers like proteas, orchids, ginger, or bird of paradise flowers. You don’t need to use all of these flowers in a single flower arrangement. If you add too many, it could come across as overwhelming or cluttered. Instead, choose a lush type of greenery and add your anthurium stems along with one other type of tropical or exotic bloom. You can create several arrangements and each of them can feature a different flower paired with your anthuriums!

If you want to keep it simple, you can even display these flowers all on their own. They are incredibly impressive and you don’t need a dozen in a vase to make an impression. Just a few gorgeous long stems, a touch of foliage, and the right vase will more than do the trick!
