Substrates and the nutrition of Anthurium andreanum

, : Substrates and the nutrition of Anthurium andreanum. Acta Horticulturae (82): 159-164

Anthurium grew and flowered in peat tailings or in fibrous sphagnum peat as well as in coniferous forest litter. In an experiment with 5 levels of N and 3 of K, the best results were obtained with an annual dressing of 20 g N + 30 g K2O/m2.
