Reposting-Need Anthurium info & image

I just received a large Dutch Anthurium, and need to know how to care for it.

I have peace lily, a autumn of philodendrons, and monstera deliciosa, as well some pothos, that are all doing well. Is the care for Dutch Anthurium the same?

Thank you so much

It looks like you're still waiting on a reply. I've had good success with anthuriums by providing them a fairly fast draining medium, but one that will retain moisture. Moderate light, and as much humidity as you can provide, at least 60-70%, is also beneficial. I've also planted them in lath baskets in a mix of shredded tree fern and sphagnum, with very good results. Just be careful to not overwater as the genetic parents of these plants are epiphytes (plants that grow attached to trees, much like your Monstera), and resent waterlogged roots.
Best of success!
