During colder months, slow down to watering every 2-3 weeks and stop feed.

 Humidity & Temperature

They like normal room temperature (if you're happy so are they) and love humidity. 

 

The latin name for Flamingo Flower Plants is dericed from the Greek ‘Anthos’ and ‘Oura’ which translates to ‘flowering tail’. However, Anthurium has a stronger link to Colombia than to Greece, given away by its exotic appearance. 

There are over 1000 species of this plant (see here if interested), differentiated primarily through different colours, patterns and shapes.
