Anthurium dressleri  has moderate light requirements. In its natural habitat, this terrestrial species grows on the jungle forest floor. Unlike epiphytic Anthuriums, this species doesn’t use its roots to climb trees and other surfaces. 


The ideal potting mix for Anthurium dressleri should be very light, well-draining, and rich in organic matter. 


Always keep the soil of  your Anthurium dressleri moist but not soaked. The only way to achieve this delicate balance is if you’re using the right soil mix. Otherwise, the combination of constant moisture and compacted soil will suffocate the roots and start to rot.
