Brown leaf tips or edges

This can be caused by underwatering, over-fertilizing, or exposure to dry air. To fix the problem, water the plant more regularly, avoid over-fertilizing, and increase humidity by misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby.

Yellowing leaves

This can be caused by overwatering or poor drainage. To fix the problem, allow the soil to dry out slightly before watering and ensure that the pot has drainage holes.

Wilting leaves

This can be caused by underwatering or root rot. To fix the problem, water the plant more regularly and check the roots for signs of rot. If there is rot, remove the affected roots and repot the plant in fresh, well-draining soil.


Anthurium Scherzerianum can be attacked by pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. To control these pests, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth or sponge, or use a natural insecticide.


Anthurium Scherzerianum can be susceptible to fungal and bacterial diseases, especially if the plant is overwatered.  To prevent these diseases, ensure that the plant has good drainage and avoid getting the leaves wet when watering. If the plant does develop a disease, remove the affected leaves and treat the plant with a fungicide or bactericide.
