How to take care of Prince Of Orang
Position in a light place but avoid direct sunlight, avoid draughts and radiators. Water thoroughly but do not over-water as it can cause the leaves to turn yellow, allow to dry out slightly between waterings.
Wipe the leaves regularly with water to remove any dust and insects. Plant in pots will benefit from a weak fertiliser solution once a month. In winter anthurium plants need a 6 weeks of rest period at a 15°C with little water.
This allows the plant to flower again in the following season.
