The once healthy indoor anthurium was infested with 50 plus baby spiders on all leaves, so I took it out in the yard and hose it and leave it out. I completely forgot I was in Sacramento and leaving it outdoor just hours will result in burnt leaves.

Now I am in a dilemma:
#1: should I (a) cut all but 2 remaining good leaves so it can focus on new growth, or (b) leave it alone for a few more weeks for it to recover?
#2: should I fertilize it? What kind?
#3: What about that burnt flower stalk? Should I cut it?

Thanks in advance.

Did you have a fine webbing on the plant? Might be that you had spider mites, which can be very harmful to plants (might be worth having a quick web search to read up on them). I would remove the dead leaves and flower, but this plant will need some TLC. Be careful not to over-water, and maybe treat with something like neem oil if you think it was indeed spider mites.
