There are over 1000 different species of Anthurium, and that doesn't cover the crosses and hybrids. Native to Central and South America. They like to be in very bright, but not direct light. Some are terrestrial (grow in soil), Other's are epiphytic and grow in trees. Its important to know which Anthurium you have, so be sure to do a bit of research to ensure that your anthurium does well for you.
Anthuriums tend to like elevated humidity. If you notice the edges of your leaves beginning to brown, increase humidity, adding a humidifier nearby can help.
