Pitta:

I have this one also...it's in full-bloom now also. Anthuriums seem to bloom very well here in winter.

Even with all the severe flooding rains here in California all my Anthuriums are blooming really well now. My plants aren't used to receiving so much good rain water.

I always potted mine in a good quality potting mix until I was advised by an Anthurium seller in the tropical north not far from where I live to pot it a medium orchid mix with some gritty river sand added. this I have done with the 4 new ones.

Yes, Anthuriums grow as epiphytes in nature. They do best with soil-less mediums. They're commonly planted in peat moss or sphagnum moss with bark, rock or sand.
