With the proper care and optimum conditions, a healthy Anthurium has glossy, heart-shaped leaves. Sometimes, however, its leaves can become discoloured, take on a different texture and look rather dull. Here are the best solutions for discoloured leaves.

Yellow leaves

If the leaves develop a yellowish tinge, the Anthurium is probably getting too much water. Before watering, it would be best to check the potting compost. If the potting compost feels fairly dry, the Anthurium could use a splash of water; if the potting compost feels moist, however, this can wait another week.

Shrivelled or wrinkled leaves

This means that your Anthurium is not receiving enough water. During the summer, give it a glass of water a week; in the winter, this should not be more than half a glass. Instead, you could put about six ice cubes on the surface of the potting compost every week. This way, you can be sure that your plant is getting enough water.

Enlarged, yellow or brown leaves

If your Anthurium plant is getting enlarged, yellow or brown leaves, it means that it is receiving too much plant nutrition. So limit yourself to giving just water for a while. It’s better to provide too little than too much plant nutrition. If you want to repot or fertilise your plant, the best time to do this is in the spring. The warmer days and more sunlight will ensure the stimulation of bud formation at this time of year. For this purpose, apply a special Anthurium fertilizer. The package will provide information about the right amount to use; never exceed the amount stated on the packaging.

Brown leaf margins and leaf tips

If the leaf margins of your Anthurium plant turn brown, the plant is receiving too much sunlight. In this case, place the plant about a meter farther away from the window. If new flowers appear but they remain green, the Anthurium is receiving too little light, so place it somewhat closer to the window. Spent flowers and old yellowed leaves can safely be trimmed away since once the old leaves and flowers turn colour, the Anthurium will simply produce more flowers.

Why Are My Hydrangeas Turning Green?

All hydrangea blooms turn different colors as they age. The most common color for pink and blue hydrangeas to turn is green (especially in the South where climates are hot and humid). After the blooms turn green, they may pick up shades of pink and burgundy.

Annabelle hydrangeas, which bloom white, ALWAYS turn green when they have been in bloom about two weeks (sometimes they stay white a little longer).

When hydrangeas have aged and turned different colors, one can pick the blooms for dried arrangements (see: Drying Naturally). Dark, unattractive petals can be snipped out with scissors.

Occasionally hydrangeas that are normally pink or blue will bloom green in some years. No one seems to know what causes this, but often it occurs for only one or two years and then the blooms return to their normal color. Using a fertilizer that contains trace elements may hasten the return to a normal color.

In cooler climates (and occasionally in hot ones), some hydrangeas age to beautiful shades of blue and purple. As far as I know, there is nothing we can do to promote these lovely colors other than to keep the plants well hydrated.
