Hi

I bought an anthurium a while ago and had issues with fungus gnats.

I read up that the anthurium can be planted in water so I decided to try that. I have had new growth that bloomed so seem to be fine.

The issue is that the water goes green and the roots are also going green now.

I have attached pictures.
Anyone have any suggestions or is the plant ok?
Don’t really want to kill it so if there is an issue anything I can do.

cheers
Colin

If it was my plant, I would pot it up in compost again (new compost) and water thoroughly. After that don`t overwater. That is what encourages the sciarid flies (fungus gnats) if the compost is too wet. Sticky yellow patches can be used to help with that problem.
