Indoors or out, anthuriums grow best in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sun, which can burn the leaves. The soil should be kept slightly moist and never allowed to dry out completely. Setting the pot in a tray of water-filled gravel will help the plant drain and also help keep humidity levels high. Allow the top of the soil to dry out to the touch before watering again.
