Light Requirement of Anthurium Flamingo Flower:
Indoors, Anthirium does best with bright indirect to bright direct light. An Eastern exposure is ideal, a western window with a curtain works as long as the plant does not receive too much direct light. The lighting is the key to the plant continuously producing flowers; the plant will survive in lower light without producing the flowers.
