Abstract:A study was conducted on Anthurium andraeanum Andre cv. Kozohara Red testing wood bark, wood chips, redwood bark, and bagasse media with fertilizer levels of 100, 200, and 400lb N-P205 -K20/A/year. Media ranking from best to poorest for flower production, flower stem length, and flower size were wood bark > wood chips > bagasse = redwood bark. Flower production and flower size increased linearly with increase in fertilizer rate. Flower stem length was not affected by fertilizer rate. Fertilizer response was similar on all media.
