I have had this red anthurium for 5 years and I was wondering if there is a way to make it bloom more. It is next to a window so it receives a lot of light and I water it once a week. What should I use to encourage more blooms? Also if anyone could tell what is wrong with its leaves?

The dead brown center surrounded by new yellowing tissue on older growth is characteristic of a fungus virus bacteria brought on by overwatering. This plant looks very healthy. Try these tips

  • verify the soil drains freely but has a high organic content. Spaghnum moss works well. Repot if necessary
  • move to a higher but diffuse light, behind light curtain facing south
  • fertilize with flowering plant fertilizer at half strength for three months and see what happens
