The Q&A Archives: anthurium

Question: what type of fertilizer should I use? the leaves are turning yellow starting at the tips.

Answer: You can use a water soluable fertilizer for your anthurium. Miracle Gro or Peter's are two brands. Apply in amounts according to label directions. Yellow leaf tips do not indicate a need for fertilizer but instead indicate a water stress problem. Too much water can cause leaves to yellow; fluoride and/or chlorine in the water can cause the same symptoms. Try using distilled or bottled water and allowing the top of the soil to dry out between waterings. Good luck with your anthuriums.
