This type of Anthurium prefers partial shade to semi-shade, regular water and rich soil that holds moisture. It is recommended to water this plant regularly to keep it healthy and keep its soil moist, but not soggy. The plant should be fertilized monthly, using a balanced dry fertilizer, during the growing season. Pruning can help to keep the plant looking its best.
